  • Sauron tilting?

    As I am working on my new display, of course the Sauron helmet fell to the ground again (fixed it again, was glue-able luckily). However, I do notice the statue is tilting to the back/left a bit and only stands on the foot in which the bolt is (this was always the case). Do any of you have this problem as well? Any tips on how to fix it? He does seem very sturdy though, just not in the place he should be.

    I certainly do not have that problem! That is very strange indeed!

      IIRC that's a common issue with old SSW Sauron

        How common is it? I've never heard of it. Mine is standing straight up like the day I put it on display years and years ago

            Ahh, I haven't been that much on statueforum. It was the biggest statue to date when Sauron was released. Maybe the base and peg wasn't reinforced well enough?

              Thanks for the replies, at least I am not the only one. As he stands quite sturdy I am not going to do something about it now.

                  do you all think Weta will redo the Sauron as part of Masterclass collection?

                  I have thought of getting this piece again but not sure if its better to wait to see if Masterclass has something coming up.

                    Yep same problem here, noticed it a couple of months ago but not that bad to tell you the truth, he has a slight lean but slight.
                    Ohh my my Sauron in Masters Collection omg omg I wouldn't want to see the price tag on that piece

                      I was wondering if we were going to get a new Sauron but since the price tag will probably be out of my league I decided to hunt down the tilting one. Apart from the helm nightmare I love him and don't regret my decision one bit

                        That helm really is a nightmare. I think mine is now more made up of glue than of anything else...

                          The SSW Sauron is fantastic, I can't imagine how it can be better.... Ok the Sideshow Premium Format version is amazing and HUGE but I personally love the look of the SSW version better. Now this might be because I only have the SSW one...but I must admit that I do wish I will own the Sideshow PF one someday
                          Now the Masters Collection Version if its ever done I am sure will be mind blowing but easy pass
