I can say by far Treebeard is the best piece Weta has ever come up to date.

I just hope it is not price outrageously .

Also just to confirm these Master Pieces i think that is what they are called - these won't ever be discounted, right? I thought i read somewhere a while ago that Weta said they would never discount these. just wanted to ask

This is one of those pieces that make me consider selling a portion of my collection to afford and accommodate. But considering Gollum was $1800 USD and considerably smaller in size and complication, I think Treebeard shall remain a dream.

Which is more than Iím willing to pay for any statue. Iím gonna guess a bit lower and say this clocks in @ 2300. Thatís $500 more than Gollum. Anything more than that is ridiculous, I donít care how good it looks.

That's what I read too.

I'd like to not mark those words, but I'm fearful. If it's near that, then I need to deeply consider 4 statues I can live without and if this one is worth it. It really is a showstopper. I'm just worried about Weta's finishing abilities. There seems to be a steep drop off in terms of proto vs production paint app.

I was shocked to see the poor paint on the glorious Elk Statue production pieces. Everyone was posting repaints online. That would drive me crazy to spend that much for such a poor paint app.

It's what would worry me about pre-ordering. I know this will sell out, so there's no way to get in-hand pics before purchasing. You just have to dive in and have a painter lined up if the paint app is poor..

Seeing as how itís part of their Masterís Collection Iíd be surprised if it disappoints. The whole line is built around paying a premium price for a premium product. Gollum is evidence that the quality can be there.
