1:30 Scale Miniature Environment

Weight: 5.159 lbs (2.34 kg)

Deep within the ruins of Dol Guldur, spells of concealment hide a dark secret. Within the maze of gloom and thorns a grim courtyard lies, where the shadowy Necromancer summons forth the mightiest of his fell servants. 

Adding to the previously launched pieces of Dol Guldur, you can now get the North Courtyard as well.

From the same team who worked on The Hobbit motion picture trilogy, comes Dol Guldur: A 1:30 Scale Collection. For the first time ever, collect your very own Middle-earth scene piece by piece and populate it with miniature figures of your choosing.

A place of dread, Dol Guldur is a ruined fortress deep in Mirkwood. Long was it thought to have been abandoned, but quietly have dark things crept into its passages, and beneath spells of concealment the Dark Lord Sauron has gathered his servants to him.

Rumour of a Necromancer drew Gandalf to the hill of Sorcery, where his suspicions were confirmed. Now the White Council must put for its strength to rescue the Grey Wizard and put the forces of darkness to flight. The stage is set for a battle of immortal powers.

After a lot of debate we decided that the first scene we’d do at 1:30 scale would be the Dol Guldur scene from The Hobbit. This is a great scene because you have so many of Middle-earth’s big heavy-hitters in it: you’ve got elves, you’ve got the Istari, you’ve got Sauron and you’ve got Ringwraiths.

Weta Workshop has developed its 1:30 scale range with accessibility for the collector in mind. Rather than one large bespoke piece, each scene fits together as a series of modular elements that can be built up over time. Collectors can then place miniature characters within the scene in limitless configurations.

The environments are available in a Limited Edition of 500 each.

Add to your set with more characters and environment pieces!

All the figures in this series are Open Edition.

Figures are made of metal, on polyresin bases

  1. Just use Eaglemoss LOTR figures!!
    I purchased the Gandalf and Galadriel 1:30 scale figure to go with this set off Ebay as the figures are no longer from WETA. When I put my LOTR Eaglemoss figure of Galadriel (Not the Hobbit series... but the older LOTR series in Eaglemoss) against the WETA one they are exactly the same scale!!!!... and as I have most of the 180 figures available I don\'t need any of the WETA figures in this scale to absolutely populate this environment.
    What I am saying is... if you are solely using WETA 1:30 figures; and want more figures to display .... just be aware that the Eaglemoss LOTR figures look equally as good and are made of metal as well. They are PERFECTLY scaled and look 1000 x better than those god awefull Games Workshop figures!. Eaglemoss literally made 180 different characters from the LOTR series and so with these environments you can set up multiple scenarios at incredible quality.... so DON\'T hold back buying these environments thinking figures are hard to buy Eaglemoss on Ebay already have this covered!!

  2. Beware the shadows!
    Part of a well thought out diorama set, this section has all the dark dangerous places those nasty Orcs love to lurk in. Even worse, there are spirits of Wraiths to contend with.
    Fairly well sculpted and detailed piece with a good resemblance to the on screen ruined fortress. From a distance it looks bland with a dull paint job but closer inspection brings it more to life. Not a great weight to it either but still a great piece and the assembled set is fairly impressive.
    Expensive and greatly let down by the unfulfilled characters initially shown but fantastic environment.
