Grond battering ram. Weta 1609

 

A great battering ram fashioned after the snarling visage of a wolf, with flames licking its jaws and burning within its eyes, Grond was a terror to behold. Etched with spells of ruin and hung from a towering gantry, the ram was dragged many miles from the dark foundries of Mordor to the gates of Minas Tirith, a city under siege. Before the White City's walls, Trolls took up chains to swing the mighty wolf's head, shattering the gates, spilling Orcs, Trolls, Wargs and worse to sack and slay within.

A masterpiece of film sculpture, this magnificent Gront collectible was first unveiled at New York Comic-Con. In a strictly Limited Edition of 500.

- Perfect scaled-down prop replica

Moria Orc Miniature

 

Weta 2306. Agile and roach-like in their scaly armour, the rodentine Orcs of Moria infested the once proud Dwarf city, looting tombs, fouling its ancient galleries, and claiming its treasuries.

In the dark they brooded over their victory, jealously guarding the empty halls against intruders. For long years they lay undisturbed until, by chance or fate, Frodo Baggins and the Fellowship of the Ring sought to pick their way unseen through Moria, rousing the Orcs to battle.
