Crafted in the heart of Middle-earth, with the most intricate of details. Every pore infused with an unparalleled dedication to artistry. Wētā Workshop is proud to present our first Masters Collection statue: Gollum.

Unveiled for the first time at San Diego Comic-Con 2017, this haunting sculpture is the embodiment of our finest work.

We hope you enjoy.


Two and a half years in development, Gollum has been crafted by Master Sculptor Jamie Beswarick, a member of Wētā Workshop’s sculpting team for more than twenty years.

Featuring hand-placed natural hair, translucent skin, and cloth of real leather, this is the first time Wētā Workshop has represented Gollum in 1:3 scale. Near clear, water-effect resin lies the creature’s ill-fated Ring, undisturbed on the naked stone, caught in a moment in time.

To celebrate the release of this very special first Masters Collection sculpture, we have created Gollum in a Limited Edition of just 589: one statue to mark each year of Gollum's life in Middle-earth.

Daniel Falconer discusses the auction lots.

Each person brings their extraordinary skill and artistry to every realistic detail: the eyes, the hair, the highly detailed base, so beautifully sculpted by our most senior artist, Jamie Beswarick.

Richard Taylor - CEO & Co-founder, Weta Workshop

  1. Astonishingly Beautiful Piece!
    In the flesh, this polystone piece is truly something else! It\'s as if a still from the Riddles in the Dark scene has been plucked from the films and sculpted into a 1/3rd scale masterpiece. The pictures online were fantastic but in person the sheer amount of detail (both on Gollum himself and the pond/stone base) beggars belief. The postage was expensive. However, this piece comes in a box of the highest quality (adorned with golden lettering and the Lord of the Rings logo/motif). It is jam-packed with safety and a artfully arranged guide for cleaning techniques; further reflecting Weta\'s consistent \"peace-of-mind\" attitude towards their customers. Not to mention, it contains a certificate of authenticity, ready to be framed beside a complimentary piece of Alan Lee\'s beautiful conceptual artwork. We\'ll done Weta on another stunning piece of Tolkien memorabilia!

  3. Masterpiece
    Quick shipping. Extremely well protected by a heavy box. Sculpture itself is accurate and extremely well detailed. Some details even not visible to the naked eye. The kind of resin used, the hair, the quality of painting and the fish-like eyes give to this statue the organic aspect and the expressivity I was waiting for. A must have !

  4. Masterpiece
    I don\'t normally write reviews but even to this day this statue has blown me away. For what it is, the price is more than fair. Unless you have it right in front of you it\'s difficult to appreciate just how mesmerising and detailed this mixed media artwork is. I own the Treebeard MC statue by Weta and this Gollum MC is still the best statue created by Weta to date.

  6. Totally Blown away by how impressive this piece looks
    One of my favorite characters brought to life, and when I mean brought to life I mean it in every sense. The details on this piece are truly remarkable. I feel that Weta has taken their work up a notch with this new Masters Collection.

    The price being the only downfall. I would rate this a perfect 10

  7. Great piece of art
    Mesmerizing how Gollum is presented. A piece of art like this gives an artist the opportunity to fully express his artistry and imagination. Kudos to the artist!! This piece actually looks more expensive than its price.

  8. This is fantastic, 500,000/10
    To those complaining about the price, sculptures like these take a very long time and very high level of skill to finish.

    Asking for a lower price is telling someone who has dedicated years of their life to becoming one of the absolute best in their field that they deserve to be paid less than minimum wage for their work.

  10. Planning error
    The piece is a delight, but I think that on this occasion you have been wrong. I can accept that the price is set, but not for 589 pieces. I think the error is in the number of units. If the total were 250 pieces people would run to buy it, but with the current situation there is no hurry. A pity the direction of this figure.

  11. Please WETA make this more affordable
    I have always been a fan of WETA collectibles but I have to admit that this asking price for this must-have piece is too much. Please WETA show us that you care about your fans and bring the price down so you can make everyone happy to order this AWESOME piece this Christmass.

  12. Obnoxious pricing
    What a disgrace to all statue collector's. Weta need to start evolving and offer customers value for money or quickly be left behind. One only needs to look at companies like Prime 1 Studios to realise how poor value this piece is.

  13. Magnifique mais beaucoup trop chère !!
    La plus belle statue de Gollum que j\'ai vu sur le site, vraiment très bien détaillée !! Mais beaucoup trop chère malgré la beauté ! Dommage car j\'aurais bien aimé l\'avoir dans ma collection.

  14. So sad about the price..
    Amazing work yet again for the team at Weta. Congratulations on a great piece. We\'ve seen it in person and it is beautiful. This price, even with the payment plan is so high for the average collector. It seems like this will only be for the high earning or used to credit card debt collectors. Sad to not be able to add this to our collection.

  15. Huge Disappointment
    Such a gorgeous piece, but it\'s only 17 inches tall and does not warrant a price of $1800. Maybe half this price, but that\'s about it. Yes, this is a huge disappointment.

  16. Beautiful statue but price is waaay too much
    I really wanted to get this statue, but this is going to only appeal now to the totally broke credit card collector or super rich fans. I don't see how $2200 with VAT included is acceptable for a statue of this size and weight. I thought it would be similar in price to Thranduil/War Troll at max.

  17. I\'ve been waiting!
    After the Black Friday sale came through in the clutch again for me, I was actually curious when this would be released. Happy to say that the wait is over. Had my eye on this since it was released at con! The story behind it is super cool and the work is flawless. Again, Well done Weta!
