    Master Frodo.

    What is the best Master Frodo baggins piece? Statue or bust etc....???

    #2
    That would be the upcoming Prime 1 Frodo/Gollum diorama (but seeing as this is the SS/SSW thread, I don't think any of them were particularly good in terms of likeness, perhaps except for the SS maquette portrait in Mordor Orc clothes)

      The Prime piece doesn't have the best likeness. The likenesses of both Sam and Frodo on that Sideshow maquette are really good

        I like the original SSW statue I have, but I think the best Frodo statue is yet to be made. Hopefully the future classic series statue will be 'the one'.

          Seems as though Frodo is used alot in diorama or a group piece MC on cart w Gandalf, or Shades of Mordor, weta fellowship minatures, him and Sam sideshow, but not alot of great solo or stand alone pieces. Surprising given his status to the story books and films.

            From the film there's only one definitive moment of Frodo I really want, when he's holding the Ring in his hand making the decision to make the journey by himself. It can't get any more Frodo than that. SSW version is pretty similar, but it's pre Lothlorien, and the likeness could be better, though it's still the only solo statue we have. For the classic series I hope this is the moment they pick. though I suspect they'll pair him up with Sam again. (in that case, I'd just have them looking at Mordor at the end of Fellowship)
            I'm sure many have said here Frodo holding the Ring at the Crack of Doom is what they would like to have, and while it is definitely iconic, it's not really the ultimate Frodo moment in my eyes.

              My favourite is also the original SSW Frodo, perfect pose & clothing.

              But the best Frodo facial likeness I’ve seen was the original sculpt Jane made for the WK&Frodo at Weathertop statue, unfortunately it never got used. You can see it in the WK&F thread in the making-of photos they showed

                Is anything perfect? Does it need to be? Each of the pieces mentioned above are really great in their own way, even the SS/Weta Frodo. I would be very happy to own any of them.

                  Good point Ith, as long as we’re happy with it that’s all that matters

                  Ooh I forgot Frodo on Asfaloth! Very good likeness there as well

                  Strange thing is, when I read the books nowadays, you would think I’d picture the movie actors in the roles now, but I still picture them as Tolkien describes, same as I did when reading the books twenty years before the movies. Strange but true!

                    The iconic Frodo moment (books/movie)might be hard to do in a statue form but when Frodo is at the Prancing Pony and the one ring slips on his finger and the utter fear and confusion on his face could be a nice piece.

                      MrUnderhill1980 interesting! I’ve never heard of that scene suggested before. Might work well in the same style as the WK&Frodo version? You’re right it would be tricky...

                      That would make a fantastic statue Randy! Was hoping it might show up in the Amon Hen series, but it would indeed make a perfect classic series statue

                        My best Frodo (of the ones I owe) is the mini statue:

                        Depending on the angle you look at him, the likeness is great.

                          I'm so not interested in Prime1's statues I hadn't even seen their Frodo yet. It doesn't look bad at all, but P1 is not for me. They feel off. Not my vibe I guess.

                          I was going to mention Frodo on Asfaloth as well Valar. The likeness is great!

                          Another Frodo I have in my collection is the Sideshow PF and while the likeness is very so so, it has a great pose and setting. I love it. One of my favorite pieces despite the flawed likeness.

                          I think the best Frodo likeness out there is the Sideshow maquette (Frodo and Sam in orc armor). I hope to be able to add that one to my collection one day.

                          I have it too. From certain angles and with some downlighting the mini Frodo is really really good.

                            MC Frodo on cart with Gandalf is really good. I love the SSW piece though as it is as simple as it gets and just has that look of innocence about it.
