      Congrats.
      As I wrote above.Be careful when putting the Pipe in the Staff. Scratch sensitive.I had to use a little color on the Pipe after I removed it from the Staff
      Now I have sealed the Pipe with Polyurethane Matt Varnish to protect the surface.

        Thank you,
        I've been waiting for a good offer for a long time and I really didn't want to pay nearly 450€. That idea with the Polyurethane Matt Varnish is a very good idea, can you please give me the name?

          It's : Vallejo Polyurethane Matt Varnish.

              Is it just me, or does the pipe on Wetas staff stick up farther than the UC version? It looks like the UC version has the pipe cradled lower down into the head of the staff.



              Weta








              UC






              I don't know which one is more screen accurate but personally, I like the look of the pipe being lower down into the head of the staff.

                I think these are subtleties that can be safely overlooked. The UC tobacco pipe also has a different shape than that of Weta.
                I could have pressed the pipe a little deeper in the Top of the Staff,but didn`t do to avoid more Scratches.
                Who,if not Weta, will ever know if everything is 100% Screenaccurate?

                  I know from when the UC version was being made it was from a actual Weta prop, but made for the ending of the Hobbit and not LOTR. So the UC version is missing the Gandalf rune, hole for the leather strap and leather strap and pouch. The pipe wasn't included from Weta so one was created based upon some different photos and designs. The Weta Gandalf pipe does fit into the UC staff if you want it to be more accurate.
