    1/4 Scale Bust you wish SSW would have made

    Like the title suggests, what are some SSW 1/4 scale bust you wish would have been been made but never were? For me I really wish they would have made
    - the Witchking, idk why this was never done, they did him in his twilight version as well as the Mouth of Sauron, I am half tempted to buy a second Morgul lord 1/4 helmet and get one commissioned.
    - Theoden with his helm and armour
    - Gondorian infantry, we have a average joe Rohirrim soldier why no Gondorian?
    - Sauron
    I better add a Denathor for the sake of @Ithilden haha

    Theoden in helm/armor
    Gamling or other Rohan Royal Guard
    Merry in Rohan armor
    Eowyn as Dernhelm
    Pippin in Gondor armor
    Faramir

        Well the characters they missed out were Eowyn, Faramir, Denethor, Morgul Lord, Sauron, Gothmog, then you could have some soldiers like you suggested, and named minor characters like Gamling, Gorbag or Shagrat, and then creatures which luckily Weta have continued to do in the new era.

        There's a section in the Weta collectors guide that goes into detail about busts they wished they had time to do, including a warg which we get a photo of, and Shadowfax. Even Bill the pony and Barliman Butterbur were mentioned!

            Eowyn and Faramir would have been great. At least Eowyn. I think that custom Eowyn bust is amazing. (photo from web)

              A lot of good ideas mentioned above. I was a big fan of the 1/4 scale bust line by SSW. I had a majority of the busts they produced. I no longer collect these and the only one I have left in my collection is a SSW 3/4 scale Gollum bust LE of 1500.

              Gondorian Soldier
              King of the Dead - I think a fan has made one years ago.
              Orc Lieutenant
              Witchking with War helm.

                Aran made one years ago. I have it in my collection, but I don't have any pictures of it easily accessible.

                  Haha, you know me all too well. Yes Denethor!

                  But I also want

                  Eowyn

                  Faramir

                  King of the Dead


                  I had no idea that Eowyn and the King of the Dead were fan made. I would love to get my hands on them. Stig, if you ever want to let your King of the Dead bust go in the future, please let me know.

                    Beorn Ithildin I suppose this is the one! Right Stig? Do the eyes light up, or glow in some way?

                        It is made by
                        Arannz
                        It's really great. They eyes and mouth does not light up, but is painted to look that way. Unsure if the one in the picture is modified with LEDs or has been digitally altered as it really look like glowing

                          That's awesome. Looks good too. Is that in 1/4 scale as well?

                            Yes, pretty sure it is. Forgot to take pictures of mine. Now I am away from home for the next few days. Sorry.

                              No worries. If you do get some free time in the next week or so, it would be cool to see it side by side with a SSW bust.

                                Don't forget the Mumakil Mahud. It was custom-made as well, but doubt it ever saw the light of day. We don't have an incarnation of him in either bust or statue.

                                  I think that's just a nicely done paintjob and the lighting angle used for the photo helps.

                                  Meant to be 1/4 scale to fit in with the official ones, but I think it may be very slightly bigger. Can't really tell though. ?

                                  That custom Eowyn is a really good effort - would look very nice with a top quality paintjob.
                                  With the Eowyn statute that I made the paintjob was crucial to making it look good. She is a hard likeness to capture, as evidenced by the original Weta bust effort shown above.
                                  However the most recent Weta Eowyn statue is extremely good (better likeness than mine).
