Middle-earth’s heroines are prepared to risk love and life to protect the halflings. They’ll follow their friends to the battle on your shelf. Lady Galadriel, is now joined by:
Mini Epics creative director Mauro Santini invited his skilled partner, Jorgelina Yeme, to share digital sculpting duties. This Argentina-born duo is affectionately known as the Mum and Dad of Mini Epics! From Jorgelina’s talent, badass female figures were born. And she’s only just getting started…
The first thing Mauro and I do is sit down to come up with a concept that truly captures the soul of the character. We want each pose to evoke a feeling of nostalgia and love for the individual characteristics of the Mini Epic – to speak to you on another level that adds to the experience of the film
Arwen joins our rapidly expanding Mini Epics family. Collect them all!

SDCC Reveal: Mini Epics with Jorgelina and Mauro
A MINI EPIC BEGINNING…
In 2017, under the bright lights of San Diego Comic-Con, Mini Epics were born! Much smaller than swords and shields – and a great deal more chatty.
Super-stylised and ultra-expressive, this new cast of characters was created by Weta Workshop’s collectibles team, a dedicated crew of artists, technicians, craftspeople, and producers, all relishing the chance to distil oodles of personality into a small EPIC package.
The results speak for themselves. That knowing sparkle in those eyes – you didn’t think it got there by accident, do you? Tilt your head a little to the left and you might just catch a wink.
Endlessly collectible. Totally adorable. These pint-sized figures have BIG personalities.
