Mind you, the Gandalf figure looks tasty


garm, you missed the First Edition of "The Hobbit"

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/The-Hobbit-1st- ... ks_UK?hash=item2a061aa692

I love the quote on the Gandalf figure that he no longer has the shipping box, would have been more useful to state the weight of the item.

For serious collectors, probably the rarest Lord of the Rings Sideshow Weta collectables and the only one ever produced in solid Bronze


John Howe is producing, through Weta a limited edition of "Smaug" in bronze this year, at least £2000 cheaper though than the Gandalf bronze above.

http://www.wetanz.com/smaug-the-golden/

Please check my other auctions for other rare Tolkien books. Which include the signed limited edition of this book


No they don't.

Don't keep me in suspenders! Did you hold the drawering? If so, (drum roll please) the winners are . . . ?
