Bilbo's old friend, an ancient and powerful wizard, Gandalf was a guide to the Fellowship and mentor to Frodo in his quest to destroy the One Ring in the fires of Mount Doom.

Deep in wisdom and foresight, Gandalf was first to discover the true nature of the ring and took it upon himself to orchestrate the forces of light against the evil advance of Sauron, the dark lord.

Last seen by Frodo and his companions plummeting towards certain death from the Bridge of Khazad-dûm, entwined in struggle with the Balrog, Gandalf's demise seemed inevitable.

But wizards are remarkably resilient...

Our authentic prop replicas and collectibles are designed 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

Wētā Workshop's legacy of finely crafted miniature figures from Middle-earth continues with this iconic character. Gandalf is an Open Edition piece.

It takes 400-500 hours to design, sculpt, model make, mold, and paint the prototype for each new 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.

Please note: images are of a pre-production prototype. Each sculpture is hand painted and minor variations will occur.

  2. Better than imagined.
    I put this one off for a long time, thinking to get a larger Gandalf, but they were sold out, or not quite what I wanted -- and I so glad I gave this a chance! It really looks like his face, and hat at his feet and whole sculpt are very attractive. Way to go!

  4. The Resemblance!!
    I love how much this sculpture actually resembles Ian McKellen as Gandalf! For the price, it is absolutely worth it!! Honestly, I was surprised that it is called miniature figure, as its size is actually pretty good, but I guess compared to other Weta figures, it is considered a miniature.

  5. Wonderful Piece
    I was very surprised by the quality and detail of this. I know Weta puts out great products, but being able to own a nice Gandalf like this for a reasonable price is awesome. It’s a nice, solid piece that really has character to it. It will be going front and center of my collection.

  7. Insane!
    This statue is unbelievable! The detail on Gandalf\'s face is stunning and the likeness is spot on! Don\'t worry about the logo on the rock in the preview picture! It\'s thankfully not there in the actual statue. The statue has a slit going down Gandalf\'s back and the one on mine is quite prominent but I asked customer support and it\'s supposed to be there, it\'s all due to variations in the build process. So don\'t panic if you think yours is cracked or something. This piece is still viewed from the front so it doesn\'t matter. I think the minis in general are underrated when in reality the detail and paintjob on these is amazing. The rock itself looks great and I also love the little splatters of mud, the pipe, and the hat.

  8. Lost in Mines of Moria
    French : J\'ai reçu cette figurine en cadeau aujourd\'hui, une très belle surprise. Et en constant son faible prix sur le site de Weta je suis étonné qu\'elle soit d\'une aussi bonne qualité ! On y retrouve un Gandalf perdu, pensif bien détaillé et joliment coloré. Merci à Steven Saunders et à son équipe pour ce magnifique cadeau !

  9. Way better than I expected
    I was dubious about purchasing anything below 1/6 scale as I assumed I would receive blobby features, standard paint - e.g. something toylike. Delighted that this Gandalf is simply beautiful - lovely clean paint in various shades and tones, stellar portrait - even the eyes are perfectly painted. A little moment in time perfectly captured in incredible detail. I am SO impressed!

  10. Great Quality & Great Price!!!
    I was excited to purchase another collectible from WETA!!! I have purchased larger LOTR figures, which were also fantastic and a little more expensive! I decided to go with a miniature figure because it was cheaper, but not cheaper in quality!!! It\'s actually perfect!!!

  11. Incredible collectible.
    This was my first purchase with WETA and I must say, I\'m so excited to collect more of these. The item came quickly and was packaged with care. The likeness and attention to detail were like none other. Once I\'m done admiring this, I\'m on to my next purchase. A must for any LOTR fan. Well done WETA and THANK YOU!!
