There’s some good in this world. And it’s a Mini Epic named Samwise.

Ready. Set. Collect. Mini Epics are here!

With each new Comic-Con, Weta Workshop’s gang of Rings rabble-rousers grows and grows – and 2018 was no exception. We welcomed four newbies to the fold! In true Mini Epics style, all were digitally sculpted here at the Workshop, with an attention to detail that’s positively mischievous.

Collect your favourite EPIC vinyl from The Lord of the Rings or snap up the whole Fellowship of the Ring set.

Digitally sculpted by 3D artist Mauro Santini (The Hobbit trilogy, Warcraft), and developed by the Weta Collectibles team, MINI EPICS are Weta Workshop's first foray into the world of pop culture vinyls!

Our team at Weta Workshop have dreamed about creating a line of vinyl collectibles for a very long time and so it is terrific to be able to reveal our MINI EPICS to you all at San Diego Comic-Con!

Mini Epics - Samwise, Galadriel, Saruman & Balrog


For more than 27 years, Weta Workshop has created creatures, characters, and entire worlds for the screen – all from our home in Wellington, New Zealand. For a mammoth seven years, we helped to bring The Lord of the Rings to life, crafting thousands of props, costumes, weapons, armour, and miniatures! We’ve worked on some of the world’s coolest movies like Avatar and King Kong, and even picked up five Academy Awards along the way. We’re a busy bunch.


When The Fellowship of the Ring landed in 2001, we weren’t about to let the world of Middle-earth stop at the screen. We set about bringing it to shelves, cabinets, and table tops across the globe! Channelling all that passion and artistry into beautiful statues, these amazing pieces were designed by the same Weta Workshop artists who work on our film projects. And it is still that way today.


15 years on, fans’ insatiable hunger for all things Middle-earth shows no sign of slowing. Which got us here at the Workshop thinking: what else could we do to bring this EPIC world to collectors and film lovers across the globe? The answer: cool and quirky vinyl collectibles, straight from Middle-earth itself. MINI EPICS!

Endlessly collectible. Totally adorable. These pint-sized figures have BIG personalities. And we’re only just getting started…

    The Mini Epics series is so awesome.
    The color, style, the packaging are really excellent. ( I am so enjoy the graphic of the package)

    The designer create a great balance between
    the modern and the classic. Great expression capture of the character.

    If you love Lord of the rings, you should buy it.

    If you love Lord of the rings and design, you should order it right now.

  2. Samwise Gamgee!!!
    My first ever Weta mini epic! I am absolutely in love with it!! The details!! Had a wee tiny bit of trouble inserting the stand on one of the legs but I managed it in the end. Although, it stands right up without the stand as well.

  6. Samwise Mini Epic
    I absolutely love this line! While stylized, all the figures have a hint of the actors who played them in the films. Samwise captures the concern for his friend as well as a sense of wonder for his fantastical surroundings.
