It is Oin's reading of the return of Erebor's birds to the Mountain that convinces his brother Gloin to fund the quest, but it is his expertise as an apothecary that makes him one of the most valued members of the Company.
Learned in herbology and the creation of tinctures and salves as well as a skilled surgeon and bone-setter, Oin possesses talents of the kind Thorin hopes never to need, but is pleased to have in his service.
Though long in the tooth and increasingly hard of hearing, the elderly Dwarf is nonetheless strong in limb and swift of arm, wielding his battle staff with a proficiency and might to match his younger companions. In an effort to mitigate his failing ears, he carries with him a brass ear horn. The battled implement bears many an indignity and misuse during Oin's long journey east toward Erebor.
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.
Oin the Dwarf is a Limited Edition piece of 1,000. 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 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.
