Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

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

Yep - finally arrive a couple days ago. I did finally get an email from WETA apologizing for the delay.

Assembled it today, and was trickier than I expected. Was terrified initially when I couldn't get the foot seated, but after some wiggling it all sat flush suddenly - for a bit was convinced the peg was far too large a diameter to insert at all. Got the cape on with a bit of a gap left in it, but the peg was inserted so it should be set. The head covers all of that so it isn't noticeable. A diagram would certainly have been helpful, as a couple parts had to go onto the arms under the cape, so had to pull that off to get them added. Tolerances on this piece seemed a bit too tight in many places I think.

After all that though, Sauron looks great! Definitely a dark cast over the silver undertones of the armor, and fantastic detail throughout. Have heard some complain regarding the lighting effect, but I think it looks good, glows a menacing red from the cracks in the base that casts some light up under the statue. Obviously looks better at night than in the day.

Glad I picked this up, and my small LOTR collection is progressing nicely...
