The Witch King

Let us try to make my first blog post, shall we? :)
So the reason I started on this blog was simply to have a blog. Sounds silly I know, but it seemed like something fun to do. So the first item on my posting-agenda is a statue I recently bought to add to my collection of Lord Of The Rings statues. I mainly collect Star Wars stuff (Anything Star Wars related really, not just statues.) but recently I started on a Lord of the Rings statue collection. And this new addition really is my masterpiece.

<-- The Witch King

So as you may or may not know, the Witch King of Angmar is the leader of the Nazgûl, from Tolkien's masterpiece: The Lord of the Rings. I think he is the most bad-ass villain in the entire triology. Sauron has got nothing on him.
This statue, made by Sideshow WETA, is about 42 centimeres high.
42.. coinsidence? I think not!
Anyway, it was made with a very good eye to detail. The statue is beautifully sculpted and painted by the people of Sideshow.
I was extremely lucky to even get a signed edition by the actor who played the Witch King in the Lord of the Rings films : Lawrence Makaore.
(picture below)

I consider myself to be very lucky to have claimed such a wonderfull price :)
I'm pretty sure a lot of people will not understand why I spend the greater part of my money on this sort of stuff. I suppose you have to be a collector yourself to understand that other people can be extremely happy with something that you might think as worthless, or at least not worth the price I payed for this statue here.
But regardless of what people think, I love collecting both Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, and nobody can convince me otherwise!

Before I forget! I made a tribute to the Nazgûl in one of the many video's I made and posted to youtube.

And now my friends, I leave you with a picture of the Morgul Lord's helmet, and a few quotes concerning him :)
Peace out!


'Fool! No man can kill me!'

'Do you not know Death when you see it, old man?'

'He is the Lord of the Nazgûl, the greatest of the 9.'
(Gandalf about the witch king)
