The Sideshow/Weta Weapon Collectible Sets - Strider @ 15:45 PST

Miniature Weapon Collectibles are the newest additions to Sideshow Weta's constantly expanding Lord of the Rings range. Each individually-numbered weapon set features a group of replicas from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring that fall under a common theme; The Arms of the Fellowship set features the weaponry of Frodo, Gandalf the Grey and Aragorn, The Arms of the Nazgul features the weaponry of the Ringwraiths and The Arms of the Hobbits the Dunedain daggers of Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin.

Each polystone weapon is hand-brushed to caputre the textures from the original weapons used in the films, and is mounted on a black, oval display plaque with the map of Middle-earth etched into its surface. The back of the plaque carries the film's logo, weapon names and the weapon sculptors' signatures.

Each set also comes with an antiqued display stand as well as a printed certificate highlighting the weapon names. Sideshow Weta have issued a limit of only 2,500 hand numbered pieces worldwide for each set, so don't delay in pre-ordering your own set before their October release. [More]
