I agree that it does not look like a hobbit hole, but it really is very nice! The workmanship is exceptional. Very nice design!

I agree with Deagol. It seems strange that Harper Collins would already have the current set of deluxe editions in print, and then decide not to follow it up with a Silmarillion to match. I do, however, love all of the quarter leather books they have released, so I am sure it will be nice. Hopefully, it will be a truly limited edition (1000 or less), instead of the 10,000+ that they have been cranking out on the other deluxe editions. I would also love to see it as an illustrated deluxe. I really enjoyed CoH with Alan Lee's works.

Whatever the case, it is still very early. I suppose that there is a chance that it could end up matching the other current deluxe books. The price of 60 GBP certainly matches, while other recent quarter leather editions have been listed at 100 GBP. Any thoughts Beren?

I do not know much about this topic, but the ones I have seen were made in 2002 and are tied into the New Line Cinemas movies. They were 1/32 scale. I have seen them for sale on EBay a few times, usually for pretty cheap (i.e. ~$5). There are currently examples of Galadriel, Bilbo, and Saruman on EBay now. One would have to assume that all of the major characters (Gandalf, Frodo, Aragorn, etc.) were made.

I must say, that I think it is a shame Tolkien was ever in a situation where he had to sell the movie rights to any of his works. I'm not sure that movies should ever have been made, and I don't think he wanted that either. I would be lying if I said that I did not enjoy Peter Jackson's films, but I was perfectly happy with the books by themselves. This said, I would prefer that the first and second ages of middle earth be left alone. These stories (Silmarillion, etc.) are the 'legends' and traditions that are meant to color and enrich The Lord of the Rings, as if they have been passed down through the ages. I say, leave them to the imagination.

That auction is nuts! Any guesses for how high that will go? I like the Nasmith drawing a lot. I'm not sure if it belongs in this book, but I would not complain!
