A quiet life in the sleepy gardens of the Shire was all Bilbo Baggins ever knew that he wanted, but when his home is invaded by thirteen rowdy Dwarves and the Wizard Gandalf, the gentleman Hobbit finds himself enlisted as a burglar on a perilous quest across Middle-earth's Wilderland to reclaim treasure from a dragon.

An adventurous spirit is not a quality prized among Hobbit folk, so the formerly respectable Bilbo Baggins' sudden departure comes as much as a surprise to him as it is to his neighbours. He blames it on the Tookish blood in his veins. That side of the family was always the most odd and taken to unhobbity impulses of curiosity.

And indeed Bilbo Baggins will come to count on every ounce of Took in him to save himself and his companions once the journey begins. Middle-earth is a dangerous place and the Company in which he travels is of a kind that attracts unwanted attention. If Bilbo Baggins returns from this quest alive, he will not be the same Hobbit who ran from his front door, having forgotten his pocket handkerchief.

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.

Richard Taylor - CEO & Co-founder, Weta Workshop

  2. Sting
    “I will give you a name,” he said to it, “and I shall call you Sting.”
    Bilbo Baggins, The Hobbit, Flies and Spiders

    This is truly a detailed smaller piece, and a nice addition to the collection. Really like how Sting is being wielded by Bilbo.

  3. First from Weta
    This is the first statue I've bought from Weta, and I am incredibly impressed! I received it today (among much excitement), unboxed him, and he now sits proudly on my top shelf. Both the sculpting and the paintwork are beautiful, and I'm so happy to have Bilbo in my collection. I'll definitely be buying from Weta again.

  4. The Hobbit who set out on an Unexpected Journey
    One of my first Weta pieces I own from The Hobbit Line and I have to say it's fantastic. The sculpting is excellent! Capturing Martin Freeman remarkably and the paint really brings it all out. For the size it's very well done. Bilbo being my favorite character from middle earth I'm very pleased in owning it. I highly recommend this little Hobbit.

  7. Fantastic!
    You can not imagen how happy I was when I recived this awsome statue of Bilbo Baggins. I really like the size of this statue because when you have it next to maybe Thorin and Legolas as I have u can see the difference between them and that is really cool. But the Detail on this statue (like on many other stuff you do) is stunning and It looks precicely as Martin Freeman from the movie! One more GREAT statue weta, thank you!

  8. Bilbo Baggins 1/6th Scale
    Exceptional Scult, the likeness to Martin is fantastic. One of the first three statues I picked up and second behind Gandalf in terms of favouritism.

    Originally I thought he wouldn't look as cool without the Gollum Enraged companion statue, but when I saw him in person I was convinced!

    Captures Bilbo's nature and character perfectly.

  11. Amazing Bilbo!
    “In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.”

    - J. R. R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

    We got our first look at the young Bilbo Baggins statue at Comic-Con 2012. As was the case for Gandalf the Grey, and the non-exclusive version of Thorin Oakenshield, Bilbo Baggins went up for Pre-Order October 1st, 2012 and is an open edition which allows fans a solid chance at getting all three of these amazing statues.

    Bilbo Baggins is a 50-year-old Hobbit, comfortable with living in Bag End and enjoying his daily life. On April 25th, 2941 of the Third Age, that would all change with a visit from the wizard, Gandalf the Grey. After an unexpected party, Bilbo was convinced to join Thorin and company on their adventure to Erebor, setting in motion events that would change his life, and the fortune of Middle-earth, forever.

    PACKAGING

    The graphics on the box for Bilbo are similar to those of the Gandalf statue, having a very Middle-earth-like look and feel to them. As with the Gandalf box, there’s a shot of the character, graphics for the title of the movie, Weta logo and the name of the character. The sides present a couple of different looks with one side showing great shots of Bilbo from different angles, and the other side showing some of the additional products that will be coming out for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The back of the box contains a great story on Bilbo and his importance to the events of The Hobbit. Unlike the Gandalf statue, you have to plug Bilbo into a base which is stored inside the box (the Thorin base was outside of the box).

    SCULPTING

    Brigitte Wuest is the sculptor of Bilbo, a name that fans of Middle-earth well know for her many amazing works like the Theoden Statue, Morgul Lord and Gandalf the White on Shadowfax. As with those statues, she nailed Martin Freeman’s look as a young Bilbo Baggins, which is to say fans will be getting an amazing likeness. The detailing of Bilbo’s outfit is really fantastic and the whole outfit gives off a very real vibe to it, looking like something worn by someone going through what Bilbo goes through. Two of the nicer small details with Bilbo are the embroidery work on Bilbo’s scarf and the hair on his feet. Another great thing is the detailing of Sting and Sting’s scabbard, both impeccably done. The pose of the statue is also awesome: we get to see Bilbo not just being the nice Hobbit we know he is, but we get to see him as the hero he becomes over the course of The Hobbit. From top to bottom this statue is a must have for any collector.

    PAINT

    The paintwork on Bilbo is simply fantastic. As with Gandalf, you have great, clean lines and the details are brought out even more so by the wonderful paint job. As good as the skin tones are on Gandalf and Thorin I think Weta really did a superb job with Bilbo, taking their work to another level. The paint work on the clothes look worn (obviously from a little later in his journey), but shows the proper wear of someone out on a long and perilous journey. I also love the paint work on Sting, and the scabbard with both items looking very much like their on screen counterparts with none of the sculpting details being lost in the paint job. I really can’t say enough good things about the paint job on this piece and just how impressed I was when I opened this amazing statue.

    Overall

    Bilbo retails for $200 on Weta’s website. As with Gandalf the Grey and Thorin, Weta was very successful in creating a fantastic statue capturing this little Hobbit as we will watch him grow on screen. I really just love everything about this statue from the little embroidery work on his scarf, wear of the clothes, likeness, paint work, detail, pose, etc. I love this statue more than I did when I saw it all those months ago at Comic-Con and having it in my collection brings a big smile to my face. There is nothing to not like about this statue and collectors are lucky that this statue is an open edition. Definitely two thumbs up!

  13. A dirty, great SPIDER!
    When Bilbo first encounters the spiders of Mirkwood, he gets a chance to use his Eleven sword on one to save himself. Flushed with his new found heroism, he names the fierce blade 'Sting!'
    This is the moment in story of the Hobbit this piece brings to mind. Bilbo's pose shows a fierce determination, yet clumsy stance. His Hobbit finery is starting to look worn and his tie looks out of place on such a perilous journey for such a fine gentlehobbit.
    Once again the sculpt is finely detailed from the pointy ears to the big , wooly hobbit feet. Fits right in with the original (and still the best) LOTR range created by WETA. Bilbo is scaled in line with the other characters and holds his own in looks and dynamism despite his size. Great figure, good likeness to Mr Freeman and solid paintjob. Looking forward to the rest of the original 'fellowship to follow
