Re: United Cutlery's - LOTR & The Hobbit - Movie Props!

Received my Faramir's sword today. What a great piece and very happy to have it in my collection. Only a couple of nit pics, the fuller grind is a bit uneven as well as the false edge (you can feel it when you run your hands down the edge) but nothing I'd exchange for. Can't wait to get it hung up ...

Re: United Cutlery's - LOTR & The Hobbit - Movie Props!

I was looking at the new Weta 1/4 crown of Theoden and was curious if UC ever had thoughts or plans for ever producing one? I wouldn't mind trying to make one and cast it in pewter with electroplating brass and nickle, but wouldn't bother is UC decided to tackle it with the current popularity of th...

Re: United Cutlery's - LOTR & The Hobbit - Movie Props!

generally they don't reprint certificates, especially for such an old item. That was released I think under the old UC before they were bought out. Your best options are either a straight up photocopy, or ideally - get a high res scan of someones, and isolate the black text from the parchment textu...

Re: Shire Post Coins

I'm happy to say that I've finally added the Gondor Double Crown to my Shire Post Mint LOTR coins collection, and was able to do so using their 25% off sale last week. :cheering: I also picked up the silver version of the White Hand of Saruman coin.

Re: Mystery dagger on Weta's LOTR wall

It looks a lot like Xena's breast dagger. Maybe not likely, but Xena: Warrior Princess WAS filmed in New Zealand . . . https://warriorprincess.fandom.com/wiki/Breast_Dagger I'd say that's awfully close, and definitely what it is called whether it be Xena's or not. Good call Buckeye! I'm a HUGE Xena...

Re: New Weta everywhere you look!

Some excellent items revealed by Weta yesterday. The Dead Marshes MC is stunning, very complex, and delicate, and will need a thoughtful display method/location. Elendil is absolutely perfect. It will be an instant preorder for me and be displayed with Sauron (yes, I now have some evil pieces in my ...

Re: New Weta everywhere you look!

I'm convinced that people absolutely see different things in human face sculpts, regardless of whether they're rendered by hand or digitally. No matter what statue is being discussed, opinions are always all over the map. It's just the way it is. There are clearly some big misses that are largely pa...

Re: New Weta everywhere you look!

...It looks really good. I may need a second Aragorn in my collection. I'm going to wait, though, to see what else Weta reveals later this year. If this summer/fall are anything like last year, I'll need to dig deep into my wallet. Buckeye, which Aragorn statue do you have? No need to post a pic (I...

Re: New Weta everywhere you look!

Strider is up for order today. It looks good in the photos. The face is not perfect, but not bad. I agree. It looks really good. I may need a second Aragorn in my collection. I'm going to wait, though, to see what else Weta reveals later this year. If this summer/fall are anything like last year, I...

Re: New Weta everywhere you look!

Escape Off the Road #145 is finally on display. It's an absolutely stunning piece, and a close second to Treebeard. I can't take my eyes off it. :inlove: It's frustrating to be unable to upload pics here. The image size requirement is exceedingly small, and I don't have a Photobucket or other simila...

Re: The Rings Of Power

Thanks for all of the links, XerachCruz! I'm intrigued by this one: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FKrkD14UYAU9LcG?format=jpg&name=4096x4096 It definitely caught my eye with the obvious Rohan motif but it is one that would make zero sense within the time-frame of this series. The Rohirrim as a cul...

Re: New Weta everywhere you look!

Well, that Bag End price is a kick in the gut. Likely a hard pass for me now. My resolve is seriously wavering. I don't have a Bag End in my collection and this new one is gorgeous. I also just figured out an ideal location for it that would make the light feature easy, place it high enough to enjo...

I appreciate and understand that. I guess I just missed the fact that it had disappeared.
