    LotR Kuzos (Die Cast Metal Curios)

    I have been excited to post about this for some time, and was given permission. I have finally had the opportunity to create an official collectible based off of The Lord of the Rings (as many know, a big dream of mine)! Working with Factory Entertainment, on their line of miniature die-cast metal curios, otherwise known as Kuzos, I sculpted 6 pieces (hopefully just the beginning!).

    I just wanted to share my excitement with you guys!

    Below is a photo from SDCC 19 (didn't know that they were shown there), and while the card in back says "Available Q4 2019", I have been told they will be pushed back into next year. Also, as you can see, the line extends past LotR, including Harry Potter, and Star Trek, along with Game of Thrones and many DC properties.

      That's really cool, Kyle. Congrats!

      I see that Fac-Ent has DC, Game of Thrones and IT in their KUZO section at the moment

                Thank you so much V! Well, when they come out, if you can't find them, maybe a friend will have to help you out!

                Thanks Stig! I still haven't gotten over it yet, watching the behind the scenes stuff for the movies is what pushed me into sculpting.

                Yeah, they are really expanding the line to include all sorts of licenses!

                Thank you Idril! I am not totally sure what the size is, as on my end they were only digital sculpts. If I remember correctly, the max size of Gandalf's staff could only go to 5", whether that is the final size or not, I don't know. I will ask my friend at Factory Entertainment and see if he can get me the sizes.

                Thank you Ith! I have had the chance to work on so many different things that I love, but never expected to get to work on something for LotR. Maybe they aren't Weta Treebeard tier collectibles, but I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity! I will see if I can get sizes next week. If I had to guess, I would say 2.5 inches.

                      Yeah, they are neat, large enough to capture detail, but small enough, that you can have an awesome collection without taking up much room!
