Up for sale today is the truly COMPLETE Sideshow Weta medallion collection as never before seen. Please read the entire listing description for everything that is included as there is quite a bit.
For those unfamiliar with the story behind these medallions: Almost 20 years ago, 25 medallions were originally planned to be produced by Weta. 24 were to be crafted depicting various scenes/ characters and a final 25th medallion of a larger size was to be made of The Dark Lord Sauron.For the first collection of 8 medallions, 10,000 of each were made, but sales for them were sluggish. For the next 8, production was drastically reduced by 90%!!!
- to only 1000 of each being crafted. Following further sluggish sales from there, unfortunately, Weta cancelled production of the final 9 medallions. Firstly Included in this listing are those aforementioned original 16 medallions and they are as follows.#1 The Orcs of Moria #1303 / 10000. #2 The Nazgul #484 / 10000. #3 The Industry of Isengard #205 / 10000. #4 The Last Alliance #394 / 10000. #5 Birth of the Uruk-Hai #738 / 10000. #6 The Soldiers of White Hand - #394 /10000. #7 The Cave Troll #726 / 10000.

Here they have been custom made by an American artisan, from the original Weta designs, to finish out the series as it was meant to from the beginning- and they are stunningly beautiful!
#17 - The Winged Terror #28. #18 - The Ride of the Rohirrim #04. #19 - The Mumakil #04. #20 - The Court of the Fountain #04. #21 - The Haradrim #11.
#22 - The Mouth of Sauron #11. #23 - The Orcs of Mordor #11. #24 - The Mistress of the Web #11. Plans for The Dark Lord Sauron are still in development and Im unsure if hell ever be produced. Over time, the plastic stand for the helm fell apart and will not be included (the pictured stand is from another helm of mine) but, the high quality metal helm remains in perfect condition.
As I stated earlier, the original medallions are nearly 20 years old and are still in beautiful condition and nearly all have their original packaging Im missing two of the original white boxes. ALL CERTIFICATES OF AUTHENTICITY ARE PRESENT AND INCLUDED AS WELL.
From the original Weta literature. A very special line of Lord of the Rings Medallions, 24 different pieces in all, are being offered by Sideshow / Weta. The original Medallion sculptures were created at the Weta Workshop, the same group who helped Peter Jackson realize his film vision of Tolkien's world, and are therefore an authentic representation of the film experience.
These special Medallions, measuring approximately 6 in diameter, capture a moment of Middle-earth history in a beautifully handcrafted, low-relief scene, featuring the characters and creatures of this epic tale. Each Medallion in the series has been meticulously sculpted to the highest standards, cast in heavy weight polystone, hand-finished to resemble antique bronze and limited to no more than ten thousand hand-numbered units per release. The Medallions come complete with a hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
