Hoping to strike a decisive blow, Saruman the White, fallen Wizard and pawn of the Dark Lord, sent his army of Uruk-hai to make war upon the people of Rohan. Rank upon rank of specialized troops marched across the plains of the Westfold beneath heavy helms of black iron, each adorned with a crest shaped according to their function.
The Wizard’s forces laid siege to King Theoden’s refugees and meagre army at the fortress of Helm’s Deep. With sword, tooth and claw the attackers tore at the stone walls, till by sorcery and sheer force of numbers the defences were breached. Blood-crazed Uruk-hai surged through the gap, overwhelming the Deep’s defenders. Uruk swordsmen wearing blade-cheeked helms and bearing long, straight-edged swords hewed their way through Elves and Rohirrim. Cutaway beneath the nose, the brutes’ helms left the swordsmen’s mouths free to bite out the throats of their enemies.
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.
Accompanying your Limited Edition helm: an exclusive behind-the-scenes insert written by Weta Workshop senior concept designer and author, Daniel Falconer, detailing how the film version was brought to the big screen!
Please note: images are of a pre-production prototype. Each sculpture is hand painted and minor variations will occur.
Weta Workshop’s high-quality Middle-earth collectibles are designed by the very same artists and technicians who work on our film projects. 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.
