      With Weta incorporating lights in statues, a new Uruk will hold the fire which will ignite the bombs that will blow up the wall.

        That would be really awesome

          But then we also need a Saruman and a Grima while they build the "bomb"

                Ya, I watched it, it sure is doable. I'm going to dare to dream and believe that Weta will make.

                  Buddy created a better likeness of Frodo than 95% of Weta's efforts to date.

                      I've been thinking about it, and I hope that this would be the perfect time for Weta to finally give us Gandalf the White's 1:1 prop staff. It's long overdue and with the TT anniversary upon us, it's time.

                        That's not a bad idea at all!

                          Ah yes, the White Staff, last in a long line of lost and/or breakable walking sticks (count'em... five, or six if you count Radagast's staff changing appearance) that Captain Klutz.... er... I mean, Gandalf... carries around.

                          In keeping with tradition, can we just picture a scene where that Elven ship arrives in Valinor from its long journey, Gandalf is walking down the ramp and suddenly trips over his own feet, and snaps the thing in two?

                          This is when Manwë walks up and says "DUDE! THAT'S ENOUGH! THAT WAS THE LAST STAFF WE EVER GIVE YOU! EVER! EEEEEVERRRRR!!! "

                                I second that! One of the few staves missing in my collection.

                                  Would love to see a white staff from Weta. Did they ever release a moria staff with a crystal? I thought they only did his pipe staff and the radagast one.

                                    I wonder what the prices of Elendil and Gil Galad will be respectively.
                                    Also, are they gonna be the first character statues after Sauron whose edition sizes will be set by preorder numbers and prices will be under $1000??

                                      They should certainly be under $1000 each, if past statues are anything to go on.

                                      Basic statues of individual characters in the classic series go for $350, and similar characters in the standard 1:6 line such as Isildur, Haldir, Gamling, Rohan Royal Guard, Grishnákh have been selling for $399 because they have a little more going on (environment included on the base).

                                      Aragorn at Amon Hen went for a little more at $449 possibly because it was quite an extravagant sculpt, but Elendil & Gil-galad should be very basic museum poses, as discussed elsewhere. It depends on whether they are standing on light-up bases to match Sauron in the same scene, if so they may be priced slightly more than the above!

                                      That would be my guess

                                      You can find all of this info readily on Gwindor's "List of "New Generation" Weta Middle-earth Collectibles" here:

                                        This scene has always made me uncomfortable. This "swamp" is a real nightmarish cemetery. It's an emblematic environment of Middle-earth.
                                        I'll be happy to pay for it!

                                        Arrows in the chest, the smoke in transparent material as for the flames of the Balrog bust and dynamic lighting for the torch ... Waw! It really can be amazing!

                                          Well if there is the inevitable increase that seems to be affecting Weta and the world then expect to pay 5-600 US. Any whiz- bangery such as lights expect to pay more
