PRE-ORDER NOTES PLEASE READ!
This is a pre-order sale. The current estimate from Weta is 1st quarter 2024. However, as many of you are aware, not a single pre-order estimate in the past five years has been on time. As such, please follow the Castle Kon Facebook page for updates on this and other pre-orders. Also, if any other seller claims to have this before Castle Kon (other than Weta directly), it is most likely out-of-date information. Castle Kon will receive its pre-ordered amount 3 – 5 days after our distributor gets them in stock from Weta and we ship within a week of receiving the items.
We are setting a $40 + FREE SHIPPING for US customers and discounted shipping for international folks) non refundable deposit with the remainder due March 1st, 2024. If the item is shipped earlier, Castle Kon will email to pay earlier. If the ship date pushes out, we shall move the remainder pay date accordingly (or try to since the system does not always work sorry!)
*Non-refundable note: Castle Kon does not get refunded the PayPal / credit card fees when providing refunds. As such, we are moving to a credit transfer process. For example, if you purchase this item for deposit of $25, and desire a refund, we will cancel the pre-order and provide a $40 credit toward any other order with Castle Kon OR will provide a 95% refund ($38).
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.
It takes hundreds of hours to design, sculpt model make, mold, and paint the prototype for each new Middle-earth piece. Whether it be a prop replica, beautiful environment or iconic character, we treat our collectibles with the same level of care and attention to detail that we bring to our film work.
Deep within the heart of Mount Doom, where the heat of the flame saturates the air, thick like the very magma it erupts from, lies the Dark Lord’s forge: Sammath Naur.
Here, within the Cracks of Doom, Sauron wove his dark magic to craft a weapon from the very fires of the earth itself—a weapon meant to dominate all of Middle-earth.
With rings bestowed upon various rulers and leaders of the land, including Dwarves, Elves, and Men, Sauron melded his very essence into the One Ring, aiming to exert his influence over the others. The Ring served as both a tool and an extension of the Dark Lord himself, a vessel of his power, and a conduit for his eternal will.

“Our authentic prop replicas and collectibles are designed by the very same artists who have worked on the three films.”
