Orc war commander Gothmog’s chief lieutenant was a lean, straight-backed Gorgoroth Orc with a face rent by a savage wound. Determined to stand out amongst his troops during the Siege of Minas Tirith, the Lieutenant wore a distinctive helm of his own fashioning.
A close-fitting cap of iron, it was crested with a tall spike onto which was impaled a human skull. Dried flesh and scraps of hair still clung to the bleached bone, a grizzly war trophy from some past melee.
During the siege the Lieutenant commanded a small force of Orcs holding the Harlond docks, where he awaited reinforcements from Umbar. Unfortunately for the officer, the ships that pulled up alongside contained not Corsairs, but Aragorn and his Army of the Dead, who made short work of him and his troops.
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.

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.
