Debuting at Comic Con, Weta has released a 304 page, hard cover book detailing and including every collectible the company has produced over the past 10 years, plus a number that for whatever reason weren't released. The book collates and illustrates with beautiful photography everything from 1:1 scale sword replicas from The Lord of the Rings and the company's entire LOTR statue line to their Dr. Grordbort's rayguns range, Halo statues, mini helmets, Doctor Who, King Kong skulls, other books and memorabilia of all kinds. It's a one-stop reference guide for Weta fans or fans of movie and art based collectibles, be they something you collect or wish you collected.

Very cool, Rev!

Didn't Weta make those Muppet busts a few years back, or did I get my wires crossed?

Either way, I may have to pick this up for my wife.

Alex knows this already, but I should disclose for those that don't already know, in the interests of total openness, that I am the author.
