        Has anyone ordered from an EU supplier? I have seen it advertised for €1550 (euro) + €90 shipping , that's for regular. Is it cheaper anywhere else? ????

        Comment


          Almost the same price range for the regular

          Bunker158 sell it for 1499,don t know about shipping.
          Sharpedge price is 1599, free shipping in France.
          PO open till sept 2020 so i think we have time to think unless price will vary?


          I am waiting for the EX price here but I fear it will be around 1900-2000 at least like the other EU shops.

            Would be cool if the whip also lit up like the sword, but I suppose most of the time the lighting won’t be turned on anyway. Tough choice, only a bit more for the EX

            I just saw the actor who plays Butterbur last night in an episode of Xena

              It seems P1 is manufacturing the prices for EX to be higher. At least that is the effect.

              Shops can have 1 ex if buying 2 regular. Meaning one can't quarantee for the Ex, except if willing to pay a lot more. One could get regular from a europe reseller for appr 1500-1700 euros.

              Direct ordering is no no as all cost to europe together would be appr something like 2500 euros.

                You are right. Though none of them I want in my collection. But a fountain guard would look great for sure.

                    I was wondering is the Balrog in this diorama same size as any Weta version? Thinking about the size of the display.

                      The base makes a massive difference in displaying this piece. The Balrog himself honestly doesn’t look that much bigger than the Original Balrog from SSW. I’m sure it’s some bigger but doesn’t look to be massively bigger.

                        A LITTLE BIT!

                          Yes, but Plat, the Weta balrog is standing in front of the base from Prime1
                          Comparing just the balrog, the two look about the same size, definately bigger than the SSW original though.

                            Haha, dare to dream but I'll dream right along with you. These types of characters flesh out the story and would add real depth to a collectors display but alas, why make Rosie Cotton when we can have Prancing Pony Aragorn, Amon Hen Aragorn, Balin's tomb Aragorn, Pooping in the Woods Aragorn, Lothlorien Aragorn, Helms Deep Aragorn, Pelennor Fields Aragorn, Black Gate Aragorn and Crowned King Aragorn. Now multiply that by Gandalf, Legolas, Gollum and Saruman and there will be little room for making these "less worthy" characters. Honestly, I'm still shocked that Weta even made Gamling and Grish.

                            At this point I have given up on seeing most of these in 1/6. The best I can hope for is that we will maybe see them in the new 1/10 scale poly that Weta just showed us but they started that line out with Saruman so my hope is not a big one even here.

                            Good luck Dave on deciding. I always go for the EX even though I might not display it with the EX add-ons. I do for two reasons, it gives me options to change it in the future and I think that resale value it higher with EX's. I'm lucky enough to have access to EX's at the same cost that the company that makes them is selling them for. If I had to pay hundreds more than that from a distributor, I would likely just get the regular version.

                            I was doing some rough estimating and it looks like the Prime Balrog without the base comes in at around 19" tall and 19" wide. Putting him pretty close to the same height as Weta's.

                              What do you mean by ‘started out with Saruman’ Ith? Surely he’s part of the mini line, not a new line. Those are going to be revealed at Comic Con online.

                                Oh, is the mini line 1/10? My bad, I don't know why I was thinking that it was the start of a new line. I'll just check that up to old age.

                                  Maybe. I personally don't think he's as big as Weta's solo Balrog. That thing by itself is huge and putting that in a massive base I would think would be pretty crazy. He may not be the same size as the Original Balrog but looking at it I think it's closer to that. Maybe someone can get Prime to send us the exact height of the Balrog.


                                  Edit: So the original Balrog is 13.5” (inches) tall. The Weta solo Balrog is roughly 20” (inches) tall. The Prime 1 including the base is 31” (inches) tall. So I’m thinking (dangerous I know ) He’s definitely in between the two pieces in size. Probably in the area of like 15-16”(inches) tall. Does it matter? Not at all. Why? Because I want to own this badass piece.


                                  I didn't notice the 360 video they had up for it. Just saw it as I was looking at the product page again.

                                    That 360 vid is terrific. What a centerpiece this going to be in anyone's collection.

                                      Yeah that’s awesome. Don’t know if they just added it or not but I figured I’d share either way. I agree. Like I said in my edit in my previous post I want to own this piece. It’s something I want in my collection.

                                        Well, Ith does have something of a point. Wasn't the 1/10 mini line originally restricted by the height of the statue, which is the reason all the original characters were seated? Was this a fact that Weta confirmed at one point, or was it something people just assumed based on the pattern they were seeing? Even early on, the rules were applied loosely because while Gollum was along those similar size dimensions as a sculpture, he was definitely a lot bigger than 1/10 (just compare him with the later Frodo, Sam, and Bilbo).

                                        It's figures like the Ringwraith, Moria Goblin, and Dwarf Miner that started to blur the lines of dimensions and confuse things. They were not seated figures, for one. Then we got things like Smaug and Gandalf on Gwaihir, which further threw the supposed 1/10 scale into disarray. The new Saruman seems to be a return to normalcy, but he too is standing, so that could truly open the door for a new line of minor characters in that pose and scale, like Ith suggested.

                                        It's anyone's guess what Weta is up to, really, but the current mini line has been about as eclectic as it gets, and doesn't seem to be following any particular rules other than the fact that they are small and affordable... for now.

                                          WOW! Prime1 Balrog looks Huge besides Weta´s!

                                          Sure, the stand does add up, but just by comparing the heads it sure does looks a lot bigger. that is of course if the dimensions of both Balrogs are accurate of course!
