Wielding his staff against the nine resurrected Nazgûl, Saruman fought with all of his considerable might, but was surprised and humbled to discover Gandalf’s captor was indeed Sauron.

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.
Behind-the-Scenes on The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Saruman the White at Dol Guldur is the latest piece announced from Weta Workshop’s high-quality 1:6 scale Middle-earth line; a line that has been 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.
