William the Troll - the third and final in our trio of gruesome trolls.

By virtue of a slight advantage in intellect and a forceful character, William the Troll is the trio's leader and provider, snatching up the Dwarves' ponies for their dinner. Calculating - by Troll standards - it is William who realises catching Bilbo is the key to disarming the angry Dwarf mob that attacks them. He is the only one of the group who grasps that the Hobbit is trying to trick them with cooking tips and tales of parasites, but, unfortunately for the Trolls, a little too late.

Our authentic prop replicas and collectibles are created by the very same artists who have worked on the three films, so effectively they come straight from Middle-earth.

Richard Taylor - CEO & Co-founder, Weta Workshop

The third and final of the three Trolls from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Tom and Bert are also available to display as a set.

William the Troll was played by Peter Hambleton in the movie. He is presented as a finely detailed miniature collectible designed and sculpted by Weta Workshop creature designer Andrew Baker, who made the conceptual designs for the trolls and other creatures in the movie.

The pose may look familiar to those who have seen the three well travelled trolls who visited San Diego Comic-Con 2012. They later attended the red carpet at the World Premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in Wellington last November and then took over the main foyer at New Zealand's National Museum, Te Papa. They have since settled outside the Weta Cave retail store in Wellington, New Zealand!

William the Troll is an Open Edition piece. Please note: images are of a pre-production prototype. Each statue is hand painted and minor variations will occur.
