    Great piece, I can respect the price, but with that, it's not for me. It makes life quite easy really, had it been 500$ cheaper I would've had to do some serious thinking

      Ouchy! Well there goes my chance at owning him.

      I will say though, it is an absolutely brilliant piece, and Weta should be very proud of it, and while I will only be able to watch from the sidelines, I can't wait to see where this line goes!

        When talking to some of the Weta crew at Supanova they mentioned this would be obtainable through Weta only. No retailer stock for this one.

          nice statue but totally unaffordable ! No regrets given this crazy price.

            Greatest Gollum ever made...but price is outright murder....now if included in the price was a nice steak dinner at a fancy steak house with Andy Serkis presenting this to me and signing it....well now its price would be justified ...I'm not getting this.....I am very happy with my other 4 gollums...would rather get elk thranduil and MOS and $100 for a steak dinner lol....I swear I almost think Weta created flex pay finally just because this was releasing. ..I know flex is gonna be used a lot here...no quick sellout too

                  Nice but way out of my ballpark price wise and I'm one that got them all before, but not this line......

                        I have to agree with those who feel this statue is just too expensive....
                        If they had a run of 200 or even 300, I think it would be an easier pill to swallow as it insures that the value will retain / go up.
                        The quality looks AMAZING!, but I am not pulling the trigger on this statue.

                        IF they had a statue with this quality of a Witch King mounted on a Fell Beast (the size of TOE)
                        I'll pre-order in a heart beat!!!

                        I hope this makes it to a reverse auction!!!

                        On another note, I take my hat off to Weta on this statue!!! If it looks this good in the pictures, i can just imagine how it will look like in person

                          I agree...if the ES was at I say at 350 or less...then maybe the pricepoint could be swallowed better

                            Now if they offered a 0% financing for 18-24 months like Best Buy I would get it

                              wtf is happening, am I supposed to pay $1800 for a 42cm statue that is mostly rock?

                                I've not looked at it that way until now. That's a pricey rock!

                                  Bloody hell I had this down as a must buy piece, but I cannot pay US $2,197.89 for a 6KG 42cm statue (price with VAT) however nice it looks, unless it's made of solid silver. I honestly thought this would be max Thranduil on Elk price. I stayed away from buying Thranduil for this, but that price has blown my mind and any price expectation I had. Could have probably bought the full sized Gollum last weekend similar price.

                                  Those glazed eyes and water style base are expensive! I think if I bought this, I'd book a day off work to get it out of it's box safely.

                                    Dan told me this would be a Weta exclusive - meaning not sold to retailers. I see no mention of that on the page though so not sure if this has changed.

                                        Oops not offering to retailers because retailers probably won't want to try and move them at that price also! Too much for them to gamble on. Wow still can't believe the price. Gollum is simple too with little clothing or props, imagine what a character like Aragorn will be priced like???

                                          LOL if you bought this you might not be able to take a day off!

                                          Seriously awesome piece and I'm so happy I didn't have my heart set on this. That price puts it way out of the average collector reach. But congrats to those who are going for it. This will be one of the highlights of any collection.
