Which is fine. And yes that is true. Like I said, it wasn’t enough of Lee and Saruman. Deserved more screen time and development instead of inserted here and there.

I’m not bashing this which some seem to think I am and are getting sensitive about it. It’s probably one of the best busts made. I would buy this, but not before some of the fellowship were made. Like I said, 5Gs or more is a lot of money for this character. With no promise of the Fellowship.

You of all people know this is not going to sell over 100 (me being diplomatic) in this market and the high price.

I would honestly buy Saruman pieces over Gandalf. Not that I don't love Gandalf.

I want both, but many feel the same way, bad guys always sell better. Infinity should have started the 1/2 line with them too and I think it would have hooked more people.

I don't really have much of a opinion if this will sell or not, but if they are going to go with a villain Silicone piece, Lurtz would've been the first character to come to mind and he had even less screen time than Saruman. Most people love a scary monster, though.

There is a pretty good custom version of Lurtz I have seen.

Yep, the artist lives in Europe, unfortunately. Fortunate for my wallet, I suppose. He's done a few other LOTR monsters if I remember correctly.

Is it this one?




I've had this guy's website bookmarked for over a decade. I was so sure I would have money by now.

His most recent LOTR is a life size Gollum. Looks like it’s going to be awesome.
