          Amazing that you now own Christopher Lee's Saruman statue. I just rewatched the Gollum DVD to see it.

          Litterally THE #1 Sideshow-Weta collectible.

            There are no words to describe this piece. And Congrats does not do you justice either.
            Thank you! I'm still in awe about it.

            Thanks Ith! I have Sir Lee's other pieces too but this is extra special!

They mention this (faux) bronze Saruman that Christopher Lee was gifted in the "The Evolution of Gollum" companion DVD that was included in the Two Towers DVD Collectors Edition that included the Gollum collectible statue. Apparently Weta made one for themselves as well, probably in real bronze.

            Found the video here Have a look at 16:08
            Oh completely forgot about that! Time for a rewatch - thanks for the link

I can't imagine having the very first statue that Weta ever created, the beginning of a very slippery slow for so many including yourself. It is nice to know that something this like this has a 'home for life', with one of the most passionate collectors there is out there for the SSW and Weta Middle-earth collectibles line.
            This news was most definitely worth the wait for. Thanks for letting the members on this forum see the first ever Weta collectible ever made. Great photos of it.


            Great memory/find Gwindor . Thanks for sharing this info with us.
            Thanks Min - who better to share it with than the lovely people on here!

            You are welcome any time Stig!

              I think they chose a great statue to start with.

                Wow TheWhiteHand so this is what you were telling me to keep an eye on. Certainly an incredible piece, not just in general but of history.

                Congratulations

                  I bought from joogle the Moria orc swordsman. Oh boy, what a statue! I have the archer coming soon. I plan to create a Moria display one day.

                    Added the SS Frodo PF to my collection today.

                    I have been wanting to add this 1/4 scale piece for a long time and finally found one for a great price.

                      That is amazing Ithildin ! So glad you are catching up on the ones that had to be 'left behind' at the time you were raising you family. Congrats.

                            I found a repainted Frodo Sideshow Weta statue for 160 Euros,
                            is it worth it for this price, what do you think

                              I would think that is a good average pending on the quality of the repaint, though personally I think it takes away from the charm of the original, old school piece for which I have a lot of poly lurve for

                                The Saruman statue being the first in the line is an awesome piece but this takes it too another level of Grail. Could this be classed as an 'Ark of the Covenant ', Ark for short, as it is a direct link to the Holy of Holies?


                                Well done indeed in acquiring this beauty

                                    If you love it get it! But if you only like it, I'd put that money towards something else that you do.

                                    I agree, I don't even know how to classify Weta poly #1. And it belonged to Mr. Lee himself!

                                        Repaints are very hard to tell without seeing in person.

                                        Sometimes they are great, sometimes. . not so great

                                        Best of luck, I really like the Sideshow paint of the statue, at least.

                                        / Best regards, Fredrik
