Immortal beings many times the size of ordinary birds of prey, the Great Eagles of the Misty Mountains flew so high that the only the sharp eyes of Elves could discern them in the blue.

Invisible and untouchable, their mastery of the sky was unrivalled till Sauron’s Ringwraiths took to the air upon the backs of fell winged beasts during the War of the Ring. Even the Dragons of old could not match their aerial prowess, and so keen was their sight that they marked even the stirring of a mouse upon the mountainside. Orcs tread openly on the slopes at their peril, and Wargs kept to the deep forests where trees shielded their passing.

In the days of the Third Age the mightiest of the Eagles was Gwaihir the Windlord. Friend to Gandalf the Grey, he bore the Wizard upon his back and more than once flew to his aid when great need called.


Sculpting collectibles is not a game of golf, it is a marathon. Turning up day after day the sculptor can meddle away at the same square centimetre all day and come in the next day only to do it all again.

  1. Looks nice, but very small
    I was expecting a lot large sculpture, it was a lot smaller than I expected. It looks really cool though.

  2. Bad Paint Quality
    Unfortunately the color quality was not as good as in the pictures. I had brush fibers on the figure.The figure itself is very pretty but of course much too expensive. I wouldn\'t buy any weta figures outside of sales.

  5. Superbe!
    Gwaihir est sublime et capte tous les regards, quant à Gandalf j\'adore le voir posé sur le dos de cet aigle magistral avec son bâton et le bout de son épée Glamdring qui dépasse!!!

    I had bought a couple of the larger statues and took a punt on this one based on the amazing photos on the website. It did not disappoint. It is a beautiful statue. Gwaihir is beautifully sculpted and painted, as is Gandalf, but the star here is the Prince of Eagles. So happy with this purchase.

    I have only been able to afford a couple of the 1:6 items Weta has offered, but I love the mini ones and have a large collection of these. Great job to Weta for this special addition to my collection. Reminds me why i love all things Tolkein!
