The Lord of the Rings. The shop had several rare one of a kind Sideshow/LOTR test pieces on display and this production sample of the Stone Trolls statue was among the pieces for sale. Since the statue was never intended for sale, there was no box or packing foam. Luckily there are no super fragile parts, and Ill pack this very carefully. This also explains why there is no printed information on the underside of the base.
There is a strong abrasion of the paper felt material on the bottom of the base. I would normally be concerned with this, but since the piece was a production sample, and was sitting around the offices of Sideshow, I took that as part of the unique nature of the item. Another unique difference between this production sample of The Stone Trolls and the official numbered run, is that there is also a difference with how many pegs are used to fit the figures on the base. My Stone trolls only have one peg--for the figure on the left side. The other two have no hole for pegs on the figures, and no pegs on the base.The actual production run of The Stone Trolls use pegs to position all three of the figures on the base. Comes from a smoke-free, pet-free home! Old Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins used to tell the story of how he once saw three arguing Trolls turned to stone by the light of the Sun. The younger Hobbits regarded this tall tale with some suspicion, until fleeing in the wilds from the Ringwraiths, they came upon the very same Trolls, still frozen in place and overgrown with weeds.
The artisans at Weta Workshop have brought this tale to life in this to-scale environment. The piece measures 8 H x 10.5" H x16" L and will make a perfect addition to any collection.
