Oft requested. Eagerly anticipated. Designed in the heart of Middle-earth. Weta Workshop is proud to present Treebeard, our second Masters Collection statue.
It's also our tallest collectible - ever.
Own this iconic character from The Lord of the Rings in a highly Limited Edition of just 333.
UNBOXING AND ASSEMBLY
Four years and 2,800 hours in development, this fine art 1:6 scale sculpture is the realisation of a long-held dream for the crew of Wētā Workshop, who brought the character of Treebeard to the screen nearly two decades ago.
Wētā Workshop senior concept designer Daniel Falconer, who was part of the original design team on The Lord of the Rings, led the design and art direction of the statue. It has been sculpted in masterful detail by artist Troy Nickel.
In July 2018, Treebeard was unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con – much to the delight of the gathered crowd, which included not just The Lord of the Rings fans and collectors, but lovers of fine art, sculpture, and the artistry of filmmaking.
Standing at more than 3 feet tall, this incredible piece is Weta Workshop’s tallest 1:6 scale collectible yet.

EXCLUSIVE ALAN LEE ART PRINT
Each Treebeard statue arrives on your doorstep containing an exclusive art print by legendary Tolkien artist, Alan Lee, who worked on the original film trilogy. Each print is signed and numbered by Alan Lee to match your statue's edition number.
“The combined talents of these master craftspeople have cumulated in the creation of one of Wētā Workshop’s most impressive collectibles to date and one of my personal favourites.”
The edition size of each Masters Collection statue is carefully chosen for its special significance. Treebeard is no exception.
This fine art statue is to be released in a highly Limited Edition of 333, commemorating the date of the Battle of Isengard: The Third Day of the Third Month in the year 3019, in the Third Age of Middle-earth.
