    Orc assistance please

    I am looking to possibly add one ORC statue to my collection. I do not have any at present. There are a number out there and I would very much like assistance in ways of opinions which one it should be love to see everyone's thoughts thank you.

    Well it depends what you call an orc - the orcs of Mordor? Goblins of Moria? Uruk-Hai? If orc for you is a blanket term for all of these, and if we're saying budget isn't an issue, i would go for the Uruk-Hai swordsman probably, the amount of detail is insane.
    Also the original SSW Moria orc swordsman is just as detailed. The armour on both of these statues is pretty iconic.
    The SSW Beserker has less armour, but the action pose is great and he has shiny blood on him.

    If you want a main character orc then Lurtz of course is one of the best. Grishnakh looks good but i don't own the statue, just the bust.

        You want the Sideshow Premium Format Moria orc. Yup, that's the one you want.

              No love for the PF Berserker EX with the severed Rohan Guard head?

                Oh I love that piece and I have always been gutted that I never got to add it to my collection but I've always loved the appearance of the smaller Moria orcs the best. They just look so evil.

                  Which smaller orcs? Like the Moria Orc Archer?

                          I should have taken better photos.

                              Thank you . I don't mind the first 3 but those last 2 could be a lot better. I'm just being extra picky with myself.

                                Ya for sure. The SS/Weta Moria Orc Archer and Orc Swordsman are both terrific pieces and I think they stand up just as well with anything being produced today.

                                    Me too actually. I passed on them at $125 back when they preordered because I couldn't afford them, now I still can't afford them.
