Awakened from deep slumber by the innocent rippling of a cast stone, it extended its many slimy appendages, slithering slowly to ensnare its soon-to-be meal. Long forgotten though it may be, its gaping, toothy maw harboured no less peril, and hunger had only stoked its desire to feast upon flesh, now scarce. Yet, something about one of the smaller ones beckoned to it, beyond mere instinct to consume, something it coveted. As the group was distracted, the lake stirred, and the Watcher in the Water struck.


Now, behold this ancient entity, meticulously brought to tangible life by our exceptional team of artisans.

A relic from the depths of Middle-earth's darker realms, this miniature statue is a captivating addition to any collection. This allows it to be appreciated from any angle. Showcase it erupting from your shelf or, thanks to the built-in socket in the base, mounted upon your wall, revealing its monstrous essence in full glory.


  • Made primarily from polystone;
  • Tentacles made from polyurethane with a metal core;
  • Approx 3.7 inches tall;
  • Wall mount on the back for easy hanging;
  • Depicts the Watcher in the Water as seen outside the Mines of Moria during The Fellowship of the Ring;
  • Digitally sculpted by Wētā Workshop 3D artist Tiger Kang, with references from the original film maquette and concept design sketches.

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