His fireworks may delight many a Hobbit youngster, but the Grey Wizard is no mere magician or trickster. Gandalf is old beyond reckoning and wise the reach of mortal men. Where Middle-earth's lords and kings brood over the fortunes of their realms, Gandalf's gaze is cast across a wider canvas and it is the greater good of all the world's free peoples that he is concerned with.
Needless are none of the acts of the Wizard, so when he counsels Dwarf-king-in-exile Thorin Oakenshield to enlist the services of Mister Bilbo Baggins as a burglar in his quest to reclaim his birthright from the dragon Smaug, it is done with a keen insight into the sheltered Hobbit's qualities and an understanding of how crucial these will be to their success. The Hobbit impresses Thorin Oakenshield little upon their first meeting, but, despite his misgivings, the Dwarf knows enough of Gandalf to credit him with good reasoning, and indeed it will not be long before Bilbo Baggins' mettle is tested and the Wizard's wisdom proven.
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.
The life size figure of Gandalf the Grey is a 6ft fibreglass statue in a similar pose to our 1:6 scale Gandalf the Grey collectible. The prototype was sculpted by Steven Saunders and brought to you by the same artists at Weta Workshop who worked on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
Please note: Product photos are of a pre-production prototype. Every individual item is painted by hand and variations will occur.
