Crack of Doom Diorama Can't Post

I was notified late last week that the pre-order process for filling the orders of The Crack of Doom Frodo and Gollum Diorama have already begun and that the figures should be arriving in the Sideshow warehouses this week!!! *twitch* I'm SO EXCITED about this one!

Yay!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

I got my notice over a week ago that it was coming in soon. It's a very small piece but a very well done piece. I can't wait to add it to my collection.

What's scary [In reply to] Can't Post

is that look in Frodo's eyes...and the red glow on the edge of the rock...

Weta really did a fine job with this scene!

no longer does the current LOTR lines from Sideshow. The WETA/Sideshow partnership dissolved a couple of years ago. All the current LOTR lines are pure Sideshow Collectibles.

They don't? [In reply to] Can't Post

Interesting! That might explain why some of the others - such as Éowyn - look rather odd, not like the movie characters.

The Eowyn statue was from the Sideshow/WETA line (I agree the likeness isn't there and that can be said about many of the figures but such is the case at times when you work in that medium. The Eowyn statue does work oh so well with the Morgal Lord Statue though, even if it doesn't look like the scene was in the book or film). That line (polystone) was made up of helms, environments, busts, statues, medallions and a few other items and were crafted by various artists from WETA and many (I think perhaps all) worked on the LOTR films. The current LOTR line (exclusively Sideshow) are 12-inch, Premimum Format Figures, Legendary Busts and Dioramas.

I was with the Wellingmoot group [In reply to] Can't Post

that saw the entire Weta line in Weta Workshop's boardroom, in a four-layer (I think) mirrored glass wall cabinet that ran the length of the room. It was eye-popping!

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

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s 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.

The Gandalf likeness [In reply to] Can't Post

is really incredible, but at first I didn't buy the Frodo statue because of the poor likeness.

However, I changed my mind as time went by and then couldn't find one... until recently. He was on eBay for quite a low price because his toes had been damaged. My poor, poor Frodo. BUT you can't even see the damage. Anyway... now I find I am glad his likeness doesn't match Elijah's appearance because now he is "Frodo" and not "Elijah". The entire sculpture holds the enchantment and look of Frodo... so I adore it all the more.

Though I'm sure they can be had from other retailers (at a lower price) or ebay.

Or you could just cut it down the middle. [In reply to] Can't Post

Crazy Ha!

Guess i'll just have to do some searching at DragonCon and ComicCon this year for one. Or eBay. I have found some amazing deals there in the past on Sideshow stuff.

OH CAH! I can't WAIT! I checked a couple of days ago, and my chargecard had some, uh, activity on it!!! :D

My hassle is that the post office will hold it until I can sign the little card and get there BEFORE THEY CLOSE at 4:30!

I love the packaging! Excellent pic!!
