BOMBUR™ THE DWARF

1:6 scale statue - Limited Edition of 1000
Dimensions:
(W x H x L) 23 cm x 23.5 cm x 15 cm
Weight: 3.395 lbs (1.54 kg)

Brother of Bofur and cousin to Bifur, Bombur rounds out the Company of Thorin as the Quest's travelling cook.

Broad even for a Dwarf, who as a people tend to be stocky and wide of belly, Bombur has a passion for the preparation and consumption of food. But there is far more to the roly-poly Dwarf than just an appetite and predilection for culinary adventuring.

Bombur may be somewhat innocent in the ways of the world and not as well travelled or experienced as some of his older companions, nor has he ever seen the object of the Quest: the Lonely Mountain they seek to reclaim. But he is brave, doughty and as loyal as he is capable with his ladle, a surprisingly effective weapon when swung like a hammer. A strong and dauntless fighter when pressed, the young Dwarf soon finds he can take care of himself when it most matters, and can put on a surprising turn of speed, but then Dwarves are natural sprinters.

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

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

Weta Workshop’s high-quality Middle-earth collectibles are designed by the very same artists and technicians who work on our movies. It takes hundreds of 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.

  13. Bombur - first collected item
    Well, Bombur was my very first payed and collected item from Weta. I actually got him on a whim because he was limited edition and from the pictures he looked very well crafted. Well Im VERY glad he was my first! The detail, work and love put into him is crazy! Anyone who is a hobbit collector like myself, REALLY needs him on their shelf. He will not dissapoint!

    Bombur has a nice warm place beside my bed. Every time I stare at Bombur he comes to life and starts running across my bedside table. He is certainly an amazing piece of art ((and an amazing character)). I adore him to bits, and so does everyone else in my house. A more then wonderful Item!

  14. Bombur is awesome!
    The final of the six statues that Weta Workshop had displayed at Comic-Con 2012 has arrived to many of our collections. If you recall the six statues at Comic-Con to start the The Hobbit statue line were; Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo Baggins, Balin, Dwalin, Thorin Oakenshiled, and of course Bombur. Bombur is also the first statue in the line to have an edition size set from the start.

    Bombur is the brother of Bofur and is also the cousin to Bifur who are both members of the party whose goal is to reclaim The Lonely Mountain from the Dragon Smaug. Bombur is a rather large Dwarf and as the traveling party makes their journey this will present challenges. However, we will also see that you can’t judge a book by its cover with Bombur.

    PACKAGING

    The overall graphic layout for Bombur’s box stays the same as we’ve seen with previous entries in the line. Per the format we’ve come to know the front of the box gives you a great shot of Bombur, graphic work for the title of the movie, and of course the Weta logo. The sides of the box for Bombur also present a familiar format with different looks at the statue. While the other side of the box presents some of the various products you can get for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey line of collectibles. The back of the box contains a great story on Bombur as well as information regarding details of the character and statue. The Styrofoam on the inside is typical with what we’ve come used to getting with these statues.

    SCULPTING

    Greg Tozer is at it again but this time he had some help from fellow sculptor Scott Spencer with their combined efforts making a great statue. Bombur is another case of the statue looking spot on to the actor and the character we saw on screen. One of the things I think that might have been a challenge for sculpting Bombur was the long U shaped beard making sure it looked like real hair, and it was done really well in coming out looking just like that.

    The outfit is probably the simplest of all the Dwarves so far but it done equally as good as those Dwarves. Unlike the previous Dwarves Bombur’s outfit is cloth based with only his boots being leather. The job making the outfit look like cloth was done successfully. So much so that Bombur looks very much like a pauper, which is fitting considering the Dwarves of Erebor situation following Smaug’s attack. Bombur was the cook of the group and as we saw in the movie really had no weapons with the exception of his cooking gear. So for this statue you get Bombur running away from what I imagine is the Goblins of Goblin Town with his giant ladle. There is a sequence where you see him running holding this so that is where I draw my inspiration from as to the sequence of events for this piece.

    A fun note for anyone who wonders how poses are created or who might help create them. If you post or lurk on the forum The Shadow and Flame you know the username WetaBloke. Well, he was the inspiration in being asked to run the parking lot of the Weta Cave and then turned into the satue we have in our collections.

    PAINT

    Bombur continues the streak of very well painted statues from Weta Workshop. The skin tones use the proper paint mixture to not only make the statue look like a shrunken Dwarf. Making the outfit look like worn cloth must have been a challenge for the paint department but it was a challenge they met to the high standards we have as collectors. Bombur very much comes out looking like someone who has the proper skin tone you saw on screen and the worn outfit of someone who has lived a hard life since leaving Erebor. The ladle that Bombur carries looks fantastic as well and very much matches the prop on screen.

    Overall

    Bombur retails for $249, which is in line with most of the statues so far in the line. I will say that while I’m not a giant fan of the character I love the statue and find it to be another hit for Weta. He looks great and helps create a really great looking Hobbit display. I want to add that with every release in this line Weta is just continuing to show how great they with these statues.

    SPECIFICATIONS

    Bombur is the first limited edition statue of the line (minus the Comic-Con Exclusive Thorin). His edition size is just 1000 pieces and for now he is in-stock ready for purchase.

    Bombur came today, and he's as lovely as the other statues.

    He's as large and lovable as I remember him being in the movie.

  16. Run fat boy...RUN!
    Bombur has always stood out as a memorable character in the book as the poor, put upon larger than life cook of the company of Thorin. WETA have recreated this loveable character in classic form, showing his well detailed girth and in a pose that can't fail to raise a smile every time you look at it :-)
    As always, it's the attention to detail that shines through with these pieces. From his little balding pate and large, plaited beard to his outfit and leather sheathed boots, Bombur is going to be hard to budge from the deserved spotlight hogger of any collection!
    Highly recommended.
