        A wonderful piece. I will only be getting it if I can't afford Treebeard.

            LEonard also pointed out the chiffon material in Arwen’s dress is represented by semi translucent resin. Can you see it?

              This one looks amazing! Excellent likeness on both Arwen and Frodo. And the details are outstanding!

                Insta preorder for me!
                Though on this pic the likeness is not perfect, or maybe it is the light?

                  If you see other pictures its much better. Depends on the angle I think.

                  I'm in love with this statue, one of my favorite moments. Now I need to convince myself it is worth the money. I still think it is way to much for "only a statue" but on the other hand...

                    I'm usually one to pick up on likeness especially if it's off.

                    Frodo looks great and Arwen is spot on from the side and still pretty close from that shot.

                    Beautiful statue which I may be talking myself into knowing that Treebeard is going to cost an arm and a leg.

                      Be hard not to put an order in for this, it looks amazing. I`ll wait to find out the Treebeard situation before deciding.

                        I don’t mean to sound like a hater or anything- I love her sculpts ! But is it me , or is her face kinda off...like from the mid way from the nose bridge and up her face looks great, but from the mid nose bridge down.. her nose looks quite long along with the upper lip.. also the lips are a bit too full.

                        That’s just my 1st impression.

                        But it everything else is just drop dead gorgeous...for me that’s the cleanest looking horse. Even Frodo look good

                          I’m sure this one will be popular with the collectors - but not for me. Looks really good though. Love the colours and paint-work.

                            Could be the shadows but yes the nostrils, mouth do look slightly different shapes on either side.

                            We are getting picky now though.

                              I am just being 100% honest given it’s $700 not including shipping.
                              Like I said, im not trying to hate, it’s just one of things that popped out when i watched the live unveiling and the sale pics

                              Still a wonderful statue and I think I’m gonna Get it, but it’s not wrong to call something out like that.

                                Yes definately and again I agree.

                                The we referred to us both to set up the joke which seems to have slipped through. You know nostrils....picky........forget it, I know it was bad.

                                  It may be the angle, but I agree, Arwen's face looks off in certain pictures. When she's photographed from the side her face looks gorgeous though. The rest of the statue is....well...just incredible!

                                  Not a fan of spending that much money on a statue, but she's a must have and she'll be the highlight of my collection. If they can make a statue like this for this price I can safely say I will never spend more money than I will spend on Arwen

                                  Plus Elrond needs a partner next to him on the showcase and the dimensions look perfect for it. Elrond will be happy. It's also nice to have more female power in the collection. So far I only have the miniature version of her that's female (well and a Hot Toys Rey from Star Wars, but it's just not the same).

                                  I especially love the water effect and the Frodo likeness. So impressive. Oh and the horse...

                                      For some weird reason I get the message that there's a problem with my payment when I try to order it? Anyone else getting that? I'm nowhere near my credit card limit, so that can't be it.

                                        So...what do we think? How fast will this sell out? I know it's a piece many of us wanted to be announced so I guess it will sell out fast. Not sure wether to pre-order now, or to wait till end of September. I know Thranduil on Elk sold out in 2 weeks iirc? But then again...both Haldir and Eomer (plus Isildur) have been available for months and they're still available, so I don't know what to do. It's either now, or end of September. CC limit will be reached in the months in between due to a holiday, etc.
