­A soldier of Rohan in King Théoden’s royal guard, Gamling was sworn to protect the throne, but the loyal warrior’s allegiances were tested when Gandalf the White and his companions came to Edoras to seek audience with the king. Ailing and in the sway of Gríma Wormtongue, Théoden was not himself. 

When Wormtongue’s men drew blades against the guests and the Wizard advanced upon the undefended king, Gamling was moved to intervene, but his sword was stayed by fellow guard Háma, who perceived Gandalf’s true intentions. Thanks to the Wizard’s help, Théoden and the land of Rohan were both freed from the corrupt counselor’s grip.

With new purpose, King Théoden rallied the Rohirrim and led them to Helm’s Deep, a mighty fortress of stone built into the White Mountains. Gamling rode with his king and fought ever at his side, surviving both the perilous journey to the Deep and the fearsome siege brought against them there by the fallen Wizard Saruman.

Choosing a sculpting medium is much like choosing the right club in golf. It's a very personal choice. Sculpting collectibles, though, is not a game of golf - it is a marathon.

Weta Workshop: Celebrating 20 Years of Creativity

When Théoden mustered the Rohirrim to ride to the aide of Gondor, Gamling was again at his side, resolute and fighting on. Gamling’s horn sounded to herald the charge of the Rohirrim at the Battle of the Pelennor. Though fear traced its lines across his leathered features, he stood firm, never wavering. Even in the face of overwhelming doom, such as when the mighty Mûmakil charged, or despair when his lord was cut down, the son of the plains held to his duty, courage in his heart and fire in his eyes.

Gamling is brought to you by sculptor Gary Hunt, an accomplished artist who is one of Wētā Workshop's longest-serving crew members, being part of the original Lord of the Rings crew.

This statue is available in a Limited Edition of just 375.

Please note: this product was designed and prototyped here in the Workshop. Images show a pre-production prototype. Each statue is painted by hand and slight variations will occur.

  1. Best Statue of weta i have!
    I have quite some statues from weta from the lord of the rings and the hobbit but this one is by far the best i have. Beautifull paintjob on the armor and the flag is really detailed. Also the pose he has is really unique, he stands proud and like and old man on guard. The head is a 8 out of 10. It really looks like the actor but the hair color of his brows are a little light so it looks like he has non from a little distance. I recommand this statue very highly!

  3. Overdue Recognition
    I am so glad to see the recent inclusion of so many figures from LOTR that added so much to the movies! Hopefully WETA will start adding additional figures from the HOBBIT series, would love a dwarf trio of Thorin, Kili and Fili. These figurines in all their detail and skilled execution just make the movies come alive for me and I am sure many others. Thank you!

  4. Cluelessness commentator!
    I really just wanted to post this review to cancel out the rather absurd other review that is calling the sculptors lazy!
    The sculptors are clearly not lazy as the statue is, at least, extremely well made as usual, with so much attention to detail. Whatever your issues, they cannot be put on the sculptors.
    I'm not even too sure what the angry collector is actually complaining about... if it's edition size and price, the sculptors are clearly not in charge of that. Blame management or marketing.
    If it's price, then the statue costs the same as other recent 1/6 scale statues. So no complaint there.
    If it's edition size, then Gamling is a niche character, and won't quickly sell out a larger edition run. Yes it's unfortunate that Gamling and the Royal guard are the same sculpt with just different heads, they could have made one statue with swap out heads for a 750 edition size. Or at least make the Royal guard a bit different, even adding a Royal guard shield would have been nice.

    But yeah, I don't get the negative review, so felt compelled to cancel it out! The statue, itself, looks incredible.

  5. Lazy guys, expensive statues.
    It is really cool, when you just want to earn more money making more statues like - ctrl+c and then ctrl+ v. Cool. 375 statues worldwide for 341Eur. So there is no more normal Weta ? Only greedy and lazy sculptors who want to ear free money ? Is that ok for you ? Do you think this statue is not a spit in the face of you fans ? I have almost ALL of your statues, and now this ? I just have no words guys. I am confused.
