A stalwart retainer and traditionalist, Gloin and his brother Oin are cousins to Thorin, the King in Exile, and hold his quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from the Dragon Smaug as of the greatest import for the future of their people.
Both are old enough to have known the prosperous days of glory before the fall of Erebor and feel keenly its loss and the shaming of the once proud line of Durin. Gloin would see the majesty of the Dwarves restored for his son Gimli's sake, and all the Dwarves to come, and rallies to Thorin's side, packing axe and coin for the journey.
As adroit with weapons as he is astute in business, Gloin is a stout but sturdy warrior and wary of both Elves and the Wizard who leads their Company to Rivendell. He mistrusts the hand of friendship that Elrond extends to the Dwarves and councils a quick departure.
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.
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.
