    The search of the 36 a Gandalf the Grey Bronze Statues. Have you seen one?

    This is the home of the search for the 36 Gandalf the Grey bronze statues. Many of you know of my search and travels to find and see this amazing piece. I had found 20 out of the 36 but my search will now start again as all my info was lost. Some I can salvage from the freaks board but I am looking forward to developing this thread once more. I will repost why this is a passion and my interview with Gary Hunt.

    In the mean time please post any images or leads you have on this amazing piece.

        Hi Stormcrow!

        Like in the old days of the S&F!!!! I'm glad so may people are back already! And what would a "Flame" forum be without it's "36 bronze" thread!!!!!!!!!!!

        I remember only one bronze from your list: Salzburg, Austria (because that's my home country), probably an old flamer who was not active during my short time on the "Shadow & Flame". I hope my memory serves me right. I've only read about it in your posts - haven't seen it personally.

            Yes I am and will do so until I find them all. Determination is a strong point.

                Stormcrow, I know where one is, honest I do . . .

                See I even have proof . . .

                [


                . . . however it is one that we all know about, sorry about that.


                Weta's board room



                Thought I would place this Bronze Gandalf on here as well, hope you don't mind.

                Gandalf on Shadowfax is found just outside Weta's boardroom . . .

                          I am responding to you now as your post count has reached 36! If you had one we would be married.

                            I'm sure Oldduffer has one of the missing 15, he would never mislead you on this.
                            Believe when he had his box bonfire that one of the flaming empty boxes was for one of these.
                            But sadly photographic evidence went down in uhhh flames.

                                Ah, and the search continues! I have never seen the Bronze Gandalf on Shadowfax! That's so cool, Min.

                                The very same Fingolfin from the S+F and UCF!

                                  I must admit, it's a beauty. I think this was advertised on eBay a few years back. It was listed as the only official bronze copy. I am assuming this is the one. I know I'd love to know more about it.

                                    It was on eBay? Since the above Shadowfax is at the Weta Workshop, I wonder if it was the same one or another on eBay? I would certainly love to own this piece but chances are none I guess. I prefer it to the GtG Stormy.

                                      The art-work in the Weta boardroom and reception area is amazing.

                                      Very blessed to have been able to see it.

                                        Is it accessible to the public or is there a tour? Or were you just a VIP scriff?
