An ancient being from across the western seas, at the end of the Third Age of Middle-earth Gandalf the Grey was a guide and friend to the Hobbit Frodo Baggins in his quest. 

Though he travelled in the wild under many names and appeared to most as little more than a ragged old man beneath a wide-brimmed hat, Gandalf’s shabby guise hid a power that only the wisest truly knew and few could match.

As the leader of the Fellowship of the Ring, the Wizard was wise and far-sighted, brave and selfless. Gandalf it was who first uncovered the true nature of the One Ring. Though he was doubted by many and resisted by others, Gandalf worked tirelessly to counsel and marshal the free peoples of the world against Sauron’s imminent return.


There are so many classic Gandalf moments, it was almost impossible to choose. But choose we did. Sculpted by our resident “Gandalf Master,” Steven Saunders, Gandalf the Grey Pilgrim walks down the steps of Minas Tirith. Collect this highly detailed polystone figure solo or as a companion piece to Ringwraith of Mordor.

  1. A Must Have Gandalf For Your LOTR Collection!!!
    The piercing blue eyes, the incredible likeness, the great looking staff and the mud stained cloak flowing behind him as if in perpetual motion! This Gandalf the Grey is definitely a stand out among my Lord of the Rings collection and it’s easy for me to admit I am quite a particular collector. If you’ve been on the fence about what to collect next and don’t already have a Gandalf the Grey you love, look no further and purchase this collectible while it’s still available! Worth every penny! Happy collecting from this very happy Lord of the Rings collector!!!

  2. My first statue from Weta
    This was my first statue for favorite character with whom maybe only Darth Vader may compete.

    Statue looks absolutely incredible, with amazing details be it life-like face, great beard, and amazingly detailed vagabond wizard robe.
    It even made me discover details I was not aware of like pipe hidden within Gandalf's staff.

    Only minor issue is plastic sword that is not perfectly straight, but it is not visible.

    Overall, this is the best Gandalf statue I saw Weta make.

  4. Best version of Gandalf-Ian McKellen
    I have several statues of Gandalf, but I feel this is the Best or Most Accurate. Although Gandalf the White is excellent as well. Different aspects of the character's role and personality.

    Recieved my gandalf classic series today and i love the statue itself good likeness to ian mcellan what im disapointed in is the peg is far to big for the hole i am going to have to try and cut it down a bit if i can but really should not have to do this to a £250 statue weta need to look at they QC

  11. First one, the hook is set
    I wasn\'t planning to collect statues until this one. To me, it\'s one of the most iconic figures, in one of the most iconic poses, helping to encapsulate both the mystique and stoic nature of Gandalf. The attention to detail is remarkable, and the size is quick perfect for book shelves and most other displays. Weta has done well here. So far, it\'s my favorite (and I now own several others).

  12. Stunning
    I am floored by the beauty of this piece. You can feel the love, care, attention to detail, and just the utter passion that Weta has imbued in this statue. The likeness to Ian McKellen is amazing, and the presence is phenomenal on the shelf. Simply a beautiful representation of Gandalf! Thank you, Weta creators and artists. I am a grateful and happy Tolkien fan! Cannot wait to see the other projects you’re working on in this Classic Series!

  16. Best Gandalf ever
    A really beautiful and magnificent figure. Strong, very precisely made. The face is perfect, the staff is perfect, clothes seem real. Thank you for this job ! From an old and demanding fan.
    Si les Français sont dans le coin, je confirme : une très belle pièce. Parfaitement ciselé, le visage et les vêtements semblent réels. Je suis très exigeant en terme de figurine et celle là est extraordinaire. Vous aurez un Gandalf chez vous!

  17. Stunning!
    Gandalf the Grey brings up different things from person to person. Some see him as elegant. Others wise and aloof. But there is no denying a mysterious air about him. A aura of power and of purpose. This statue captures those qualities perfectly. Between the flow of his robes to the flesh tones of his face, this piece is a wonderful addition to anyone’s collection. It is very sturdy and is exactly as pictured.

    As a fan of Gandalf and of magic in general I am proud to have this in my collection. Thank you Weta!

    Moreover, the figurine is very sturdy and of good quality.
