With picks and shovels King Thror’s Dwarves carved deep shafts into the living rock of the Lonely Mountain. Mining Erebor’s rich veins of gold and gem stones, the Longbeards quickly attained a level of prosperity unrivalled in all of Middle-earth.

Yet boasts of such vast treasure were also quick to attract the gaze of narrowed, jealous eyes...

To guard his hoard, King Thror set a watch upon his gate. Dwarf soldiers, well-trained and armed with swords, axes and long spears mounted an unending vigil at the entrance to the underground city. Stoking the forges of the Mountain kingdom and harnessing the skills of Middle-earth greatest armourers, Thror clad his regal Erebor guards in thick plate and square-edged helms, ornately etched and engraved with snaking patterns befitting the protectors of the world’s greatest treasure.

Back by popular demand, Weta Workshop is proud to announce the return of its Helm series.  Each 1:4 scale Helm is made from polystone and comes in an edition of just 750. 

Sculptor Gary Hunt, who helped bring The Hobbit trilogy to life on screen, had the honour of crafting this noble piece to stand proudly among your 1:4 scale helm collection.

The unique access to original movie props enjoyed by Weta’s artists meant Gary had an actual, screen-used helmet on his desk as the ultimate in reference.

  1. So disappointed..
    I was so excited to get the Erebor Royal Guard\'s Helm.. but when I received it, the paint job looked nothing what is pictured. It looks like a 2nd grader had attempted to paint it or a 5 minute rush job before Friday knock off. There are so many large globules of paint which have dried over the intricate patterns, completely concealing those details and changing the look of the helm. Sad to say, it has ruined my confidence in Weta\'s products, and will make me think twice before ordering again.
    I have had to resort to removing those globules and defecfs myself and repainting to an acceptable standard.

    Thank you Weta! Keep making these helms. This one is my new favourite. Another crown, maybe Thorins crown would be epic.
