    Gandalf the White with Shadowfax


    Hello,
    Please write down your opinions about this statue and what is the right price for it ??

    Thanks.

    One of the best Gandalf statues out there IMO. Especially as his white incarnation. Biggest drawback is that the skin tone of his staff hand doesn't match the rest, but it can be overlooked.

    Dunno about price. Have you tried searching for finished auctions on eBay?

      Well it's surely an iconic statue. Shadowfax is just so beautifully done. My only slight reservation is that Gandalf is looking down so you can't see his face very well. If we could have the SSW Gandalf the White bust on the statue (At the right scale of course!) that would be perfect.
      It's still worth getting and i think it's worth around £250 (Please adjust to your local currency! )

        The three rider pieces, Aragorn, Gandalf the White and Legolas/Gimli are pretty much stable in the 350-450 eur/USD range for now I think. But I see them go lower without boxes or slight damages of course.

            Shadowfax is brilliant, Brigitte Wuest is still the grandmaster of sculpting horses

            My personal favourite version Gandalf the White is the SSW one I own by Gary Hunt, and I would really consider this one as well! But both statues are great... maybe get both versions

            The sculpting and detailing on the robes is extremely realistic, and the weathering technique and metallic paint used on Glamdring is incredible (the same used on SSW Gandalf the Grey). The way the robes drape around the hilt of Glamdring is a highlight in realistic sculpting for me

            Enjoy whichever statue(s) you decide on Bishop, both are fantastic!

              You are making anything look good with you lighting set-up!
              I never liked this version of GTW, but your pictures makes him look straight out of the movies.

                The good sculpting is already there but only downlighting reveals it!

ID:	211718 GTW on Shadowfax is a really nice statue. I would have preferred a more forward stance of Gandalf, so I think Shadowfax steals the show on this one. Overall a wonderful addition. I bought this on eBay a year ago for about $225 (including shipping). A pretty good deal then. Just a guess but $300+ is what you might expect to pay, but just a guess.

                          I bought my SSW Sam and Bill brand new unopened a few years back. I did pay a pretty penny though, which is unavoidable nowadays.

                          Still sealed, it was like opening a time capsule, quite surreal!

                          The paper covering the statue was yellowed with age, and crumbling, but the quality control and paint work were absolutely perfect back in those days.

                          So much fun opening a sealed SSW statue! Enjoy!

                            The legs on SF are a weak point as with all the steed pieces from this time, but overall it is a fantastic, dynamic piece that can still be picked up around £250-£350.

                                I have seen him go for as little as €200. However, €350 would be more the normal price. Mind you, I have seen an asking price of €450 before.

                                It is a great piece and well worth having in any LOTR collection.

                                        Fantastic statue but as
                                        FrodoEyes said earlier Gandalf's face is hard to clearly see as he is looking down. Because of this, I have displayed him on the top of my Ikea Detolf cabinets.
