Gollum Enraged Statue from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Creeping unseen in the subterranean labyrinth beneath Goblin-town, Gollum was a nameless horror, preying upon Goblin whelps straying too near his cold, black lake. Wearing his magical Ring Gollum was the lord of his lonely underground fiefdom invisible to rapacious Goblins hordes. For almost as long as he could remember he had dwelt here, alone with his Precious in the dark, his pitiful life 
stretched by the power of the Ring, until the day Bilbo Baggins™ stumbled into his world. 

Lost and bewildered, the Hobbit had escaped death at the hands of his Goblin captors only to blunder into an equally unthinkable peril when Gollum lays eyes upon him at the shore of the underground lake. But as plump and tender as he might appear, Bilbo Baggins is not the easy meal Gollum is expecting. Kindling distant memories, the Hobbit engages him in a game of riddles, the prize being Bilbo’s life. Only when ‘Baggins’ poses his winning stumper does Gollum come to truly appreciate that he has lost far more than just a game of riddles, and his rage and despair is terrible. 

Weta continues the legacy of producing finely crafted, highly detailed 1/6 scale collectible polystone statues from Middle-earth. The essence of each character expertly captured in every piece.
This piece has been designed as a companion to Weta's Bilbo Baggins statue (available separately)
Gollum™ Enraged was sculpted by Ben Mauro and Greg Tozer.
It takes approximately 400-500 hours to design, sculpt, model-make, mould and paint the prototype for each new character.
Sculpted and created by the same artists and craftspeople who have worked on The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Bilbo Baggins is one of the first three in the range of 1/6 scale characters from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
Gollum Enraged statue is available for Pre-order
