    Great statue, but I already have the original SSW Gandalf and RWoS so no interest from me - if its real hope those who are interested will like this (and the Ringwraith too)

      The portrait looks exactly like the Gandalf on Card.,

        Well, I find it quite disappointing. There are soooo many gandalf version and so many characters which haven’t been done yet ... why this choice ?!?

        ok this is a new line and you probably need to do well known characters to help this line to sell well but I don’t really understand this strategy from Weta given that it seems to be 1:6 scale without huge differences with actual 1:6 line.

          Price point will determine if I get this one. Definitely getting the wraith, and I do love this Gandalf, but this MIGHT be a wait for a sale purchase. Depends what else is coming I suppose. If there really is a premium Cave Troll on the way then that piece will be priority.

            I agree with Plat, the face looks very similar and just as good as GoCart. While I don’t necessarily think this is the best representation of Gandalf, as I always imagine him being more humble and never willing to actual fight (and in here it looks like he’s more than willing, putting on a sort of intimidating face) and GoCart being the perfect example of that, I’ll most certainly be getting this if it’s real. Overall looks very well done

              I think they want to target more people again. A lot of people love the 1/6 statues but haven't been able to catch up with the latest pieces, because the prices keep going up. There are people who miss the days where the prices were around 300 EUR. I think this is Weta's way to make a split...to attract more people. I'm sure they chose Gandalf/Wraith because they're popular characters, makes sense to start a new line with them. If enough people buy them I'm sure they'll create more in this line. Maybe they prefer to use the more expensive statues for characters or moments they haven't done before. After that they can always release a cheaper 1/6 version (of the same character/moment).

                I don´t know if it is a fake or not,please forgive me when it is.
                Great posts Plat! Where did you find these? Are they already up in the Weta site?

                P.S. Please ignore the question, I just saw they leaked on FB.

                    This really makes me wish the recent Saruman mini wAs 1:6, these would look so good together

                      Do we know this is a 'cheaper' line of 1/6 statues? I don't see the point, as we have a 1/6 line already, which these two statues may still be part of. Remember Dan said we would have an MC, a premium, two 1/6 statues, and then the new more affordable line, which I took to mean smaller than 1/6 and made from a different material, like vinyl. Unless these two statues are not made from polystone? So don't get your hopes up just yet

                      As for the statue itself, it looks really good! Yes, another Gandalf, but we haven't had a standalone Gandalf in 1/6 from LOTR since the SSW days, so this gives people a chance to have him that way. I have the Hobbit version, but if this is as good as it looks, depending on the price, I might replace the Hobbit version with this.

                        Yeah I think these are two of the four 1:6 reveals. Cheaper only in the sense they’re simpler than some of their other 1:6 pieces.

                        rhe new line sounds like it’ll be a different scale / type of product

                          Personally I think the Gandalf 1/6 from The Hobbit was better than this one. I don’t like this pose at all

                            It's one of the best Gandalf statues for sure, I like the cloak swirling in the breeze look, and the likeness is perfect. But I prefer LOTR, and his costume is a bit different to the Hobbit one, especially the staff. Does it look like it's the staff with the pipe in?

                            This would also go well with a potential cave troll in Moria piece The base looks like it could be in Moria.

                              Why not have The Hobbit & LOTR versions!?

                                For me personally, space and money! I have the SSW GTG and the Hobbit version... 3 would be an extravagance!

                                    I have the Hobbit GTG and I don't see the point of getting this piece. I think Sideshow PF is still the definitive GTG piece though I don't have it, and would be about the same price as this in the secondary market.

                                      If other websites have it listed already, will Weta open pre orders tonight?
