Glittering coins. Golden treasure. And a goblet to hug his horn tip. Our King under the Mountain cradles his hoard.
Each year, Weta Workshop’s gang of Rings rabble-rousers grows and grows. Now, we’re proud to announce mini Middle-earth is welcoming an all-new cast of characters from The Hobbit.
Tales may fall short of the enormity of our fearsome fire drake, but our digital sculptor Mauro Santini sure didn’t. We created Smaug in STUPENDOUS size, towering above at 11.2 inches / 28cm tall, he’s our biggest Mini Epic yet.
Sculptor: Mauro Santini
Mini Epics let us breathe new life into much-loved characters...then give them an unexpected twist! They are a sculptors dream.
Smaug joins our rapidly expanding Mini Epics family. Collect them all!
Please note: Images are of a pre-production prototype. Final product may vary.

SUPER-STYLISED AND ULTRA-EXPRESSIVE
This cast of miniaturised characters was created by Weta Workshop’s collectibles team, a dedicated crew of artists, technicians, craftspeople, and producers, all relishing the chance to distil oodles of personality into an EPIC package.
The results speak for themselves. That knowing sparkle in those eyes – you didn’t think it got there by accident, do you? Tilt your head a little to the left and you might just catch a wink.
Endlessly collectible. Totally adorable. These pint-sized figures have BIG personalities.
Ready. Set. Collect!
