"Hope seemed small and far away to Sam, as he watched his friend and master's seeming lifeless body taken away by orcs, until he learned that Frodo was merely paralyzed by Shelob's foul sting. After a daring rescue, Frodo and Sam found orc armor small enough to fit their diminutive & undernourished hobbit frames, each wearing a helmet to disguise their dirty but otherwise un-orc-like faces. This simple but clever disguise allowed the pair to move through Mordor largely unnoticed, ever closer to Mount Doom.

Sam's orc helm has been expertly crafted in 1:4 scale by Rodney Ford of WETA fame, a perfect copy of the helmet worn by Sean Astin in the film, 'Return of the King.' This miniature helmet replica is made of real metal, and includes a hand-numbered display base." (from Sideshow Collectibles)
