“From the lowest dungeon to the highest peak I fought with him, the Balrog of Morgoth. Until at last, I threw down my enemy and smote his ruin upon the mountainside. Darkness took me, and I strayed out of thought and time. Stars wheeled overhead and every day was as long as a life age of the Earth. But it was not the end. I felt life in me again. I’ve been sent back… until my task is done.”

Following their Hobbit friends, Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli enter the gloom of the ancient forest of Fangorn. Dark and dangerous is this old wood; a remnant of the great forest that once covered much of the wild lands east of the mountains. As the gnarled trees that hang over them begin to groan ominously to one another, the three hunters are alerted to the presence of a mysterious, robed figure.

‘The White Wizard approaches,’ warns Legolas, and expecting their foe Saruman to appear, the trio let fly sword, axe, and arrow, only to be thwarted by a blinding magic. Quickly overcome, the friends’ thoughts turn to the worst, and in exasperation and fear demand their enemy reveal himself.

But the end has not come this day, for as the brilliant light fades and his grey mantle falls, standing before them is no fallen Wizard, but a friend from beyond the borders of the mortal world; Gandalf has returned.

‘I am Gandalf the White, and I come back to you now at the turn of the tide.’

GANDALF THE WHITE WIZARD

With the fellowship broken and scattered, the forces of Sauron and Saruman growing in strength, Merry and Pippin taken by enemies, and the Ringbearer lost in the east, Gandalf returns in radiance to shepherd the fragmented heroes of Middle-earth towards their future with renewed hope.

For this incarnation, we turned to expert sculptor Gary Hunt, who has applied his craft to many of our previous Gandalf statues, including the original Gandalf the White bust, sculpted over twenty years ago.

FEATURES:

  • 1:6 scale;
  • Made from high-quality polystone;
  • Digitally sculpted by Middle-earth alumni and Master Sculptor, Gary Hunt;
  • Created in celebration of the LOTR 20th Anniversary;
  • Signature pose and clothing.

The moment where Gandalf the White first reveals himself was such a pivotal one, that I just knew we had to revisit him for the Classic Series. My first time sculpting Gandalf the White was before the film’s release, working with photos of Sir Ian McKellen posing. Now that we have digital scans of the actors, it allowed me to really hone in on the majesty of that moment.
