Weird Tolkien Collectables

So, just for a bit of fun, I thought I would start a thread of the weirdest Tolkien items that people have either seen or have in their collection.

How about these to start, which I saw on a well known auction site a while back, 2 taxidermy dioramas, a mouse Bag End scene and a rat and mouse Gandalf and Bilbo.

These Lord of the Rings/Hobbit Cheeto listings pop up every now and then.

The latest is a Cheeto in the shape of ring:


And Smaug:

How about these trading cards from the Garbage Pail Kids series, some interesting name variations from the Lord of the Rings.

Are you REALLY sure you want to open that box of Ungoliadora?

Weird would also probably need some level of definition... but I am very much looking forward to this.

Bring out the Arwen & Aragon salt & pepper shakers!

I dug this old post up from 2007 for those who might not have run across this licensed product... ... t_id=19895#forumpost19895

No so much a weird item but a weird auction. Who wants a broken disc video game to add to their collection. With this picture you might get anything.

The "Wonders of" thread is a great resource if you want to find some of these. ... ost_id=7607#forumpost7607 ... ost_id=7700#forumpost7700

I might have to do a Top 10 "Best of" from that thread.

I seem to remember doing a larger blog post on that either with or my Steady site but can't find it right now...

Having said that, I certainly remember his one:

Lord of the Rails, or: Always listen to a friend!

And yes, those trains are still out there!

P.S. When the trains came out they were also offered as model trains [i.e. collectables]

These are 7 items of body piercing jewellery, from the Lord of the Rings Return of the King movie. I was given these, so I’m afraid to say they are in my collection.

Here we have another taxidermy diorama, this one is of Shelob and Frodo, with a stuffed spider.
