"Sideshow and WETA are proud to offer fans a four-part series of Troll busts, reproductions of the actual pre-production maquettes used during the design process for the film 'Return of the King.' Artists at WETA created these maquettes under the direction of Richard Taylor, studies of the various trolls that fought for Sauron during the siege of Minas Tirith. These maquettes were used by the artists tasked to determine the final armor design & skin coloration, and served as reference for the digital artists that brought the trolls to life on screen.

Fourth and last in the series... GROND... GROND... GROND. Sauron's armies chanted loudly as the trolls moved the immense battering ram into position at the gates of Minas Tirith. With the gates broken, Sauron's trolls and orcs spilled into the city, forcing the oppressed Gondorian soldiers to retreat deeper into the city." (from Sideshow Collectibles)
