Dubious LOTR film memorabilia? Can't Post

This story is dated March 14 but I don't believe it's been linked to from TORN:

Fraud of the rings?
Peter Jackson's production company has cast doubt on the authenticity of one of the world's largest collections of Lord of the Rings memorabilia.
American Troika Brodsky has been advertising in New Zealand papers for items used in the production of the trilogy - and the upcoming Hobbit prequels.
...(Weta's Matthew) Dravitzki, who is in Los Angeles working on The Hobbit, questioned if all of Brodsky's pieces were original or whether he had been taken for a ride, but said it was hard to tell without close inspection.
"Very good reproductions were made by various licensees and with the passage of time some people seem to be passing these off as original. Generally, all screen-used props and costumes stayed with us."

The full story is here.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Here it is again... [In reply to] Can't Post

... that link had quotes in it, which got replaced by "%E2%80%9C" and that caused it go all awry.

Here again is the corrected link. Sorry about that. I normally check links to see if they work, and the one time it didn't, I didn't Crazy

Thanks for linking to that Earl. [In reply to] Can't Post

The collector's stomach must have dropped right through the floor when he read the Herald's story! I'm glad he's got a chance to refute it in detail.
