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.
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.
