When the Dwarves of the Company of Thorin Oakenshield are captured and imprisoned by King Thranduil, Bilbo Baggins must conceive a bold plan to secure his friends’ freedom.

Stealing keys and leading his friends to the Elven King’s cellar, the hobbit bundles his companions into empty barrels and sends them careening to freedom down an underground river. As guards rush to prevent their escape, Bilbo leaps bravely after them, into the black waters and the new dangers to which it will sweep them all.

Released in the lead-up to the opening of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, our Barrel Rider collectibles are scaled to match the exclusive The Desolation of Smaug Collector's Edition DVD statue featuring Thorin, Kili and Bilbo.

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.

Oin the Dwarf Barrel Rider is an Open Edition piece. 

Please note: images are of a pre-production prototype. Each statue is hand painted and minor variations will occur.

Wētā Workshop’s high-quality Middle-earth collectibles are designed by the very same artists and technicians who work on our movies. It takes hundreds of 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.

    Great piece,small in size but still has fine detail,such as Oin clasping his hearing device. Once Weta releases all the barrel riders they will look fantastic side by side. Well Done Weta again.!! Look forward to more Barrel Riders.
