Winner of seventeen Academy Awards, The Lord of the Rings was brought to the big screen by New Line Cinema and directed by Peter Jackson. Weta Workshop was intrinsically involved in the design and physical effects manufacture for all three films. The son of King Elendil, Isildur fought beside his father as they laid siege to Mordor. Despite their bravery, none could withstand the approach of the Dark Lord Sauron, wielder of the One Ring of Power.
Elendil was slain by a single blow from Saurons mace and Isildur lay prone before his enemy, but as the Dark Lord loomed over the fallen prince, Isildur snatched the hilt of his fathers broken sword and struck wildly. The princes swipe cleaved the Ring from Saurons hand and in so doing the Dark Lords power was undone.Saurons body was destroyed and the war won. Yet even in defeat were the seeds of Saurons ultimate victory laid, for the One Ring remained, and with it the spirit of the Dark Lords was bound to Middle-earth. Staggering to his feet, Isildur beheld this strange treasure, gazing upon it in awe.
Yet given the choice to destroy it and end the threat of Sauron for all time, the prince instead claimed the Ring as his prize. As his gloved fingers closed about it, the Ring in turn claimed Isildur and worked its dark influence upon him, corrupting his weak mortal soul as it would all those who bore it after him. Our authentic prop replicas and collectibles are designed by the very same artists who have worked on the three films, so effectively they come straight from Middle-earth. Richard Taylor - CEO & Co-founder, Weta Workshop. CREATING ISILDUR Although his screen time was comparatively brief, Isildur was nevertheless a pivotal character in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and embodied some of Weta Workshops finest costume and weapon work.
With intricate inlays of brass and elvish writing, Narsil (which ultimately became Andúril) was one such example. As the blade was to be shattered by the foot of Sauron during the prologue, the sequence required a collection of breakaway swords. These swords, cut into the same exacting seven individual shards, were glued together and broken again and again to capture the moment. Distilling this complex scene into collectible form, was senior sculptor Daniel Cockersell no stranger to Middle-earth, having formed part of Weta Workshops physical sculpting team on.
Isildur stands complete in 1:6 scale: gazing at the One Ring, broken hilt of Narsil still clutched in one hand. Please note: images are of pre-production prototype. Each item is painted by hand and variations will occur.
Edition number 535 of 750. Statue is brand-new in a factory sealed case, straight from Weta Workshop. We pride ourselves on a very fast turnaround time, 1 day or less on average.
We do not use a third shipper cartons. It would make the box bigger and heavier and it is very time consuming to do this as there are no standard size boxes for this. A lot of our statues are large and so are the boxes.
However depending on the destination country the maximum allowable size of a box varies wildly. Height for purposes of the formula is the longest measure of the box. But for many other countries this is only 78 inches. There are many such companies in the USA.
OUR PRODUCTS All our products are new and inside sealed boxed that have never been opened, unless otherwise specified in the listing. We store them in a 3rd party warehouse in Long Beach, CA.
We do not open sealed boxes to take pictures of the statue. Most of the statues are painted by hand. That means that slight variations are always possible when closely examined. For most people this is OK.
No 2 paintings are 100% identical, unless they are prints or photos. We use actual images for unique items or used items.
