Seeking to secure his claim to what lay within its halls, King Thranduil of the Woodland Realm marched his army of Elven warriors to the Lonely Mountain. Assembling before the gates of the underground kingdom of Erebor, Thranduil’s force was a sight to steal the breath of men: more than enough, he deemed, to strike fear in the hearts of the Dwarves within who dared withhold the King’s jewels.
Arrayed in perfect lines, the great host gleamed gold beneath a pale sun. Gloved hands gripped tall spears, shields were strapped to their arms, and curved blades hung hungry upon their belts. Shading icy, hawk-sharp eyes, the Elves of Mirkwood wore tight-fitting, golden helms with sweeping, bladed crests and cheek guards intricately styled after the curling, barbed thorns and vines of their forest home.
Our authentic prop replicas and collectibles are designed by the very same artists who have worked on the three films, so effectively they come straight from Middle-earth.
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.

Weta Workshop’s high-quality Middle-earth collectibles are designed by the very same artists and technicians who work on our movies. It takes 400-500 hours to design, sculpt, model make, mold, and paint the prototype for each new piece. Whether it be a prop replica, beautiful environment or iconic character, we treat our collectibles with the same level of care and attention to detail that we bring to our film work.
