Strangely, CoolToyReview didn't seem to cover Weta at all in their San Diego Comic Con coverage this year, despite the huge, 15 foot long Smaug head that loomed over the convention hall and all the new stuff shown. Anyhow, here are some highlights for your viewing pleasure ...



The Dragon's illuminated eye opened, looked around and blinked. His throat was also illuminated.

Onto the statues and other goodies ...

Revealed but no pricing or edition size info yet was the huge Smaug the Terrible statue, which uses Weta's largest base size yet, measuring almost two feet wide. Official pictures will no doubt be released soon, but for now, here's some photography from the convention showroom floor.






Smaug the Terrible will be limited edition and release in Q1, 2015. ES and pricing TBC ...

_________

There will also be a smaller version of the same character available for more limited budgets and display spaces.

Smaug, King Under the Mountain (already affectionately dubbed The Smauglet by some collectors) will release later this year and be open edition. It is reported to be somewhere in the range of 9" wide.



Weta has a newsletter that can be signed up for to get alerts on when these statues will become available.

_________


Also shown at San Diego Comic Con was the next 1/6th scale statues from The Hobbit, including Bard ...




... and Thror on Throne.





____________

Salt Lake City Comic Con also brought the reveal of the next mini environment, Beorn's House. No ES or price yet.



And there was also the next mini Hobbit Hole, #36 Bagshot Row, available now ...

Spoiler alert! But would Dain riding on a war pig be too much to hope for at some point?! :D

I'd definitely buy a statue of Dain Ironfoot and I'd also want to see a nameless dwarf warrior in full body armor:



If they made them in such a way that we could army-build them, that would be amazing.
