Ebay: Gandorf the Stand-up - UPDATE - Calisuri @ 09:36 PST
Aesthetik wrote us with a link to a new ebay auction.

\[ Gandorf\? Heh...i bet its Saruman \]

"This is a full sized standee for the upcoming film 'Lord of the Rings'. It is about 6 feet tall. I believe the is Gandorf. The standee is not available to the public and is part of a studio collection of graphics. It is made of corrugated cardboard and folds nicley along a fold in the material...perfect for shipping. " [Ebay]

While the auction claims this is Gandorf (misspelling or Gandalf in another language?), this is in fact Christopher Lee as Saruman. But its cool none-the-less!


As for whether this is legit...SC sends us this info:

"...While i can't vouch for the integrity of the seller, the saruman stand-up is the real deal. i had a press pass at the international toy fair in new york city last week, and i vividly remember seeing a stand-up like this at the decipher card game booth in the javits convention center. if i recall correctly, there was a similar one for frodo. i wonder if that one will surface?"

And to add to that, the seller just wrote:

"Yes, its a legit standee...I just dont know my LOTR characters."

So all seems legit. Go and Bid!
