WETA: SMAUG THE FIRE-DRAKE Statue

Orders for this piece are open for a strictly limited time, from the 8th of June to the 6th of July (PDT). The final edition size will be determined by the total number of orders made during this period. No more, no less.

FEATURES:

Limited Edition;
Approximately 1:100 scale;
Made from high-quality polystone;
Features the mighty Smaug in his full winged glory;
Smaug towers above all at whopping 34.6" / 88cm;
Includes age-worn ancient Dwarven statue;

Digitally sculpted by Gary Hunt: "Smaug, being the ultimate dragon, is always great to revisit. This time sculpting him with wings outstretched, I tried capturing his might and power - as many of my previous sculpts had them folded, with a focus on his elegance.
The design team on The Hobbit did a fantastic job of creating such a multifaceted character, so it's always a pleasure to explore this great dragon once more."

- Gary Hunt - Sculptor, Wētā Workshop

Cross country skiing is great if you live in a small country.

Borrow money from a pessimist, they don't expect it back.

Seems roughly the same dimensions as their Lara Croft statue. I still don't have any LOTR/hobbit statues, but that's OK.

Maybe the price will be around $1,500? But oh yeah it's 2022, so inflation and all that.

Great sculpt. A bit grandiose for my Tolkien display though.

I was also going to guess around that price area, though as you say Lara was priced before the "letter".

Looks great, but I am very sceptical for the wing-body joins. This issue definitely stop me from PO it although this could mean loosing the chance of getting it (really don’t think so)
