When Frodo and his party discover Gandalf is not at Bree to meet them as arranged, their plan to ferry the Ring out of the Shire to safety seems doomed. Five Ringwraiths now dog their trail, but even as the forces of darkness close in about them there is hope.
Watching over them from the shadows is Strider, a grim yet noble Ranger, wanderer and swordsman, and friend to Gandalf the Grey. Under his guidance and protection, the Hobbits are led by secret ways to the scarred hill of Weathertop, where he proves the manner of his mettle, standing fearlessly between Frodo and his five terrifying pursuers.
Strider was sculpted by Steven Saunders. Read an interview with Steven about creating collectibles.
Created by the same artists and craftspeople who work on our movies, Strider is the third character in our range of miniature figures. Each of which exist in two versions - the other version is exclusively available in person at our Weta Cave store in Wellington, New Zealand.

Deep muted colours blending into the shadows except for his face - illuminated by the dim light from his pipe. This piece captures beautifully our first glimpse of Strider - the vagabond King. Once I saw it at Weta stand at Supanova Adelaide I just had to have it. Thank you Leonard, Mark, Paul and all for coming and bringing the work of your awesome artisans to show us! This statue partners beautifully with the Arwen statue. Hide.
