The Lord of the Rings trilogy won seventeen Academy Awards. Wētā Workshop was intrinsically involved in the design and physical effects manufacture for all three films.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Lord of The Rings, the team at Wētā Workshop have created a special line of polystone statues featuring Middle-earth’s major characters in their signature pose and clothing. The Classic Series is Open Edition and has been tailor made to fit beautifully on your shelf.
Frodo knows his task; his mind is set. He is a Ringbearer; guardian of the One, and if he cannot find a way, no one will. The road to Mordor lies before him, and alone he will go on, for himself, for the Ring, and for all people.
Hundreds of miles from the Shire, Frodo Baggins stands at the water’s edge, gazing west. His thoughts turned inward, Frodo does not hear the sounds of battle among the trees on the slopes behind him, where his friends fight to buy his escape from the relentless Uruk-hai. Only now, in the heavy stillness of this strange place, so far from home, does he understand how truly alone he is.
FRODO BAGGINS, RINGBEARER In a world of magic, monsters, wizards, and elves, Frodo may seem like a small and insignificant existence. Yet, by following his journey, we learn of his true strength and the potential for greatness inside the smallest of creatures.
Capturing the enormity of the task presented to Frodo and the depth of his resolve, we are proud to introduce this wonderful statue as part of our Classic Series.
