Revealed live to the world at San Diego Comic-Con 2017, Weta Workshop presents The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Thranduil on Elk Statue, Weta's largest polystone statue to date! King of the Woodland Realm, Thranduil lead a mighty host of Elven warriors, and who can forget the moment he rode into battle astride his magnificent elk? Sculpted by the masterful Lindsey Crummett, Thranduil on Elk
is an astonishing 1:6 scale piece from Weta's line of high-quality Middle-earth collectibles. Lindsey was part of the Weta Workshop team that helped bring the The Hobbit
motion picture trilogy to life.
New Line Cinema, Peter Jackson, and Warner Bros. brought J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit
to the big screen in an epic trilogy. Weta Workshop was thrilled to return to Middle-earth once again, contributing design, specialty props, and specialty costumes to all three films. Weta Workshop’s authentic, high-quality Middle-earth prop replicas and collectibles are created by the very same artists and technicians who worked on the three movies, so effectively these pieces come straight from Middle-earth! It takes 400-500 hours to design, sculpt, model make, mold, and paint the prototype for each new piece. Whether it be a prop replica, a beautiful environment, or an iconic character, Weta treats its collectibles with the same level of care and attention to detail the company brings to its film work.
When Thorin, the Dwarf king in exile, reclaimed his home from the Dragon Smaug, Thranduil marched upon the mountain fortress of Erebor. With the great army of Mirkwood at his back, the Elf Lord sought to wrest from Thorin his share of the treasure of Erebor, by force, if necessary. Amid the uncountable coins, gold, and jewels lay the White Gems of Lasgalen, above all most dear to Thranduil, for once they belonged to his lost queen.
Clad in shining plate, Thranduil surveyed the long valley and the Dwarves’ towering stone fortifications from atop his great Mirkwood Elk, cold eyes weighing the cost of his bid, confident in the overwhelming might of his forces. Yet even the far-sighted Elf could not foresee the true toll both Dwarves and his own kind would pay in blood before the day was out, for others sought the wealth and advantage of Erebor. Even as Thranduil and Thorin traded threats, a vast horde of Orcs lead by Azog the Defiler drew near by secret ways. In the battle to come, both King and mount would be tested, and black Orcish iron cleaved beneath blade, hoof, and antlers!
