An adventurous spirit is not a quality prized among Hobbit folk, so the formerly respectable Bilbo Baggins' sudden departure comes as much as a surprise to him as it is to his neighbours. He blames it on the Tookish blood in his veins. That side of the family was always the most odd and taken to unhobbity impulses of curiosity.
And indeed Bilbo Baggins will come to count on every ounce of Took in him to save himself and his companions once the journey begins. Middle-earth is a dangerous place and the Company in which he travels is of a kind that attracts unwanted attention. If Bilbo Baggins returns from this quest alive, he will not be the same Hobbit who ran from his front door, having forgotten his pocket handkerchief.
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.
Bilbo Baggins is an Open Edition piece. Please note: images are of a pre-production prototype. Each sculpture is hand painted and minor variations will occur.
Weta Workshop’s high-quality Middle-earth collectibles are made by the very same artists and technicians who work on our movies. 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.
