Fellowship of the Ring - Set 2
Among the nine are representatives from all the free peoples. Gimli, Son of Gloin speaks for the Dwarves. His broad bladed axe and Dwarven indomitability alongside the swordsmanship and valour of the mighty warrior Boromir present a doughty force with which to contend for any who would assail the Fellowship as they travel.
Boromir is the son of the Steward of Gondor and heir to the seat of governance of the once great realm of men, now dwindling as decay and despair descends upon its people.
Young Merry and Pippin have no special battle prowess, though hobbits possess surprisingly strong throwing arms, but their heart and loyalty to the ring bearer Frodo are matched only by their appetites.
This is the second in a series of three Sets, which together make up the entire Fellowship of the Ring (all three Sets can be seen together, in the 2nd image on the left, showing all 9 members of the Fellowship and of course Bill, the pony). The Fellowship of the Ring - Set 1 includes Gandalf the Grey, Frodo Baggins and Legolas and is shipping now world wide. The third and final set in the series, which brings up the rear with Strider, Samwise and Bill the pony will also be available for pre-order in 2012.
These three Sets have been created in response to ongoing collector requests for a diorama of the full Fellowship on their trek across Middle-earth. They have been sculpted at miniature scale (for those with limited shelf space) and are ideally suited to display alongside our iconic The Lord of the Rings environments like Rivendell and Bag End.
The height from the bottom of the base to the top of Boromir's blonde locks is 5.1 inches (or 13cm). The base is 7.9 inches (or 20cm) long and 5.1 inches (or 13cm) wide. The hobbits are just 3 inches (7.5cm) tall from head to toe and Gimli only slightly taller at 3.5 inches (9cm).
The Fellowship of the Ring has been sculpted, molded, modeled and painted by a wide team of artists from Weta Workshop, who helped create the Trilogy. It is then reproduced in polystone resin, the material of choice for fine art details.
