BILBO BAGGINS™ IN BAG END™

1:6 scale statue - Limited Edition of 1,046
Low Stock
Dimensions:
(W x H x L) 52 cm x 29 cm x 36 cm
Weight: 33.069 lbs (15 kg)

On the morning of his one-hundred and eleventh birthday, the eccentric master of Bag End huddles amid a jumble of paper and books in his study, his quill a blur as he scratches at his memoir.

Miraculously hale for one of his advanced years, Bilbo Baggins is no ordinary Hobbit. A small person he might be, but his has been a long and storied life, and he pursues the self-appointed duty to record it in every detail with a furious fervour.

Gossip and disapproval swirl among the respectable citizens of Hobbiton where the old bachelor is concerned. “He entertains Dwarves,” they mutter under furrowed brows. “”He talks to Elves and consorts with Wizards.” Wide-eyed children hang on the tales of Bilbo’s adventures, while parents tut-tut and shake their heads, suppressing ‘unhealthy curiosity’ while NOT listening with an attentive ear. “That old Bilbo’s not right in the head; too much of a Took,” they proclaim a little too loudly. “But there is gold in Bag End,” they whisper to one another with furtive glances, “And other secrets, besides.”

Bilbo laughs at the provincial mutterings of his neighbours and loves them just the same. They’ll never grasp what he has seen, but some among them show promise..It is for Bilbo’s young cousin Frodo, and some other Hobbits like him, that he is compelled to write. Age creeps upon Bilbo, little by little, and that Tookishness in his blood stirs wistful; thoughts of far off mountains and friends long gone. His mind is made up; plans are set. Now all he needs is time to finish what he has begun, if they’d just stop ringing the bell!

As with most of our creations, we don’t really know what they’re going to look like until they’re finished. With Bilbo Baggins in Bag End, we started by using cardboard mockups to get size and proportions followed by months of making and re-making. It was only when we assembled all the final painted pieces that we knew this was going to exceed all our expectations. That was an exciting moment.

  3. Flabbergasted
    It’s really amazing! Even more beautiful then I thought it would be. It’s very near to the prototype. I saw a review on youtube in which the paintwork seemed ‘flat’, but now I have the sculpture myself, it appeared to be bad lighting. I’m sooo glad I managed to get a copy of this piece. Thank you Weta for making dreamworlds come true!

  7. Absolutely stunning
    The shear magnitude and detail of this piece blew me away. From in the individual quills to the candle holders and coat racks. This, in my mind, is a masters collections piece. Amazing job Weta! I always find myself catching something new every time I look at it. What an amazing scene to recreate!

  8. A beautiful tribute!
    I\'m beyond blown away by this sculpt! The artists did an absolutely phenomenal job, truly truly beautiful. Sir Ian Holm\'s portrayal of Bilbo is my favorite and this is such a perfect tribute to not only the character and films, but also the actor. It will take me some time to discover all the little easter eggs and take in all the details.

    If someone were to ask me what my dream LOTR sculpt from Weta would be, it would be exactly this.

  9. Absolutely amazing
    My favorite Tolkien character is Bilbo and this piece doesn\'t disappoint. Love love love this. Its so detailed I can\'t stop staring at it. Keep seeing different little features.
    The tiny things like the Quills and Pipes are beautifully realistic.
    Extremely happy I have this in my every expanding collection. Well done Weta!
