Driven to the brink of madness by the merciless lashings of its vile Orc overlords, there lumbered forth a Cave Troll, a behemoth of dim wits yet endowed with the strength of a legion. Its skin was nigh impervious to weapons forged of iron, a testament to the unforgiving nature of the dark places of the world where it dwelt. Clutched within its colossal three-fingered grasp was a mighty stone hammer, a fearsome instrument of destruction that it wielded with blind fury. 

The Cave Troll was the first creature to be designed for the iconic film trilogy, and Wētā Workshop sculptor Jamie Beswarick played a key role in its overall design. In those early days, the look and feel of Middle-earth's inhabitants were still being defined, with artists encouraged to envision not only their appearances but also their habits and histories. This approach aimed to develop a level of authenticity that went beyond the typical fantasy genre.

Consequently, these lumbering giants were endowed with thick hides, three-fingered hands, powerful jaws, and claws suited for digging. It was these defining characteristics that Jamie Beswarick was once again tasked with recreating, this time in miniature form. By capturing the raw strength and ferocity of such a creature, and infusing each detail with untamed wrath and fury, our incredible team has managed to capture the very essence of this behemoth.

Perfectly sized for easy display and ideal for any desktop or bookshelf, this Cave Troll miniature statue would be an excellent addition to your Wētā Workshop collection.


  • Approx 6.2 inches tall;
  • Depicts the Cave Troll seen within the Mines of Moria during The Fellowship of the Ring;
  • Physically sculpted by Wētā Workshop veteran Jamie Beswarick, who also sculpted the design for the original film.

Our authentic prop replicas and collectibles are designed by the very same artists who have worked on the three films.
