Elven boats glide silently down the River Anduin, carrying the Fellowship of the Ring on their journey south toward Mordor. Secrecy abandoned, the companions must trust in the speed of the water to ferry them swiftly between steep cliffs and away from the hunters pursuing them.

Rounding a bend in the river all eyes rise to behold a spectacle seen by few, the mighty Argonath: The Pillars of the Kings. With feet planted as if gliding upon the water, two great statues rise far above with arms raised in challenge and weapons clutched tight to their chests. Crowns adorn their great grey heads while stone eyes gaze north in ceaseless vigilance. Hewn by many hands from living rock, the Argonath are carved in the likeness of the kings of old, Aragorn’s kin. In centuries past they guarded the boundary of ancient Gondor, standing immovable against the foes of Númenor; projections of the power and majesty of a people now all but gone.


  • Limited Edition;
  • Depicts the iconic scene from the official Fellowship of the Ring film poster;
  • Hand sculpted environment by Middle-earth master Gary Hunt;
  • Incredibly minute details including a miniature Fellowship in boats;
  • Faithfully recreated using screen-accurate reference materials.

The 20th Anniversary of The Lord of The Rings movies has a special significance to us here at the Workshop, and we are delighted to commemorate the upcoming event with a brand-new series of iconic Middle-earth figures. Let the celebrations begin!

The Argonath™


It takes hundreds of hours to design, sculpt model make, mold, and paint the prototype for each new Middle-earth piece. Whether it be a prop replica, beautiful environment or iconic character, we treat our collectibles with the same level of care and attention to detail that we bring to our film work.

  1. They forgot Gimli
    I was so excited and waited so long for this environment and now I sadly have to say I'm quiet disappointed. The Argonath itself are great and greatly painted, but there is a huge loss of quality on the base. It seems like the mountains are kind of glued to the base. Directly on the water edge there is a thick grey line without detailed paint with even small holes in it... And another thing: Gimli is not part of the fellowship. On the prototype you can see his helmet, his reddish beard, and armored arms...On my statue everything of that is missing. He has just a green coat like everyone else, no beard, no helmet, just a white face with grey hair.
