SMAUG™ - KING UNDER THE MOUNTAIN

Miniature statue
Dimensions:
(W x H x L) 0 cm x 0 cm x 0 cm
Weight: 0 lbs (0 kg)

Coiled beneath a quilt of innumerable glittering coins and stolen treasures, the mighty Smaug™ slumbers, dreaming of gold.

The Dwarven city of Erebor was no match for a fire drake and was taken in a storm of death and flame lasting mere moments.

The Dragon has resided within the carved walls of stone, supreme and unchallenged in his dominion; the true King Under the Mountain.

Yet peerless as Smaug is in size and power, doubt and jealous suspicion gnaw at him in his dreams and stir the Dragon from his slumber. Out there in the wide world the heir of Durin walks still, sworn to reclaim his lost crown and kingdom. Rumour of untold riches might yet attract foolhardy and unwanted guests, and the wretched Men of Lake-town dwell nearly upon the Dragon’s doorstep. Stirring to cast a smouldering eye across his hoard, the thought of thieves and interlopers kindles a fiery rage in the Wyrm’s belly.

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.

Richard Taylor - CEO & Co-founder, Wētā Workshop

Expertly sculpted by Gary Hunt, a member of the original Lord of the Rings crew, Smaug - King Under the Mountain will make an iconic addition to your Wētā Workshop miniatures collection. The statue is an Open Edition piece.

Please note: images are of a pre-production prototype. Each statue is painted by hand and variations will occur.

Wētā Workshop’s high-quality Middle-earth collectibles are designed by the very same artists and technicians who work on our movies. It takes hundreds of 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.

  1. Fool me once, Shame on you; Fool me twice, Shame on me.
    I bought the only stock remains in Weta shop in Wellington and was only able to have detailed check when I am back to hometown. The box inside was already opened - tape cut and the color on one of its scale on Smaug\'s back is partially OFF and shows the original color of white. It is easy to figure out this is either a returned or a sample product. Weta Shop definitely knew it (cause the tape was cut means product already checked) but still trying to sell it without any notice. I am a big fan of LOTR but given the given, I will not spend a single cent here again. Fool me twice, shame on me. Just pray for a good luck and check your product when you get it and try to avoid what happened to me here.

  2. I love this Smaug-lette!
    Love sculptor Gary Hunt\'s work and wanted this sculpt for a while - I even bought 2! Had read all the pros and cons and for me this little piece has just as much attitude and unbelievable detail as the Daddy Smaug - EVERY tiny scale is there. An expressive piece that is perfect for my desk. As far as the paint - I only took off one star because IMO the eyes on one of mine could have been a BIT better - but overall IMO the paint is lovely and clean - definitely red-orange tones muted w. a sooty wash, glowing gold, and green stone. Happy I have this Smauglette in hand for my desk and to display w. other WETA minis like the DOS barrel riders sculpture that came with the BlueRay set.
    Just an amazing piece bringing me a lot of joy.

  3. I\'m not disappointed
    I also hesitated to buy it, but because I liked it, I ordered it finally. I\'m not disappointed. It\'s not too small, and the details are beautiful. This piece is a perfect choice for those who don\'t want to buy a too big and too expensive figure.

  4. Great piece!
    Yes, it\'s smaller than the other Smaug statues around, but it\'s not THAT tiny. It\'s full of detail and for the price....I\'m really glad I have it. Bigger one may be even better, but not in my situation. Wouldn\'t have the room for it and way too expensive. This smaller statue is ideal size. Not so small that you can\'t see enough detail, but not so big that I can\'t display it. It looks magnificent next to the other smaller statues of WETA.

  7. The Paint work & size is excellent. I was a bit mixed with the reviews before I bought it, but I am glad that I got it, instead of the other expensive smaug models.

  9. Small. So so small....
    This is my first weta statue. When I found out I could have my own little Smaug in my room for only 125$ I figured it was worth it. After getting this little guy I was kind of taken back. The detail on the polly stonecast itself was really good. But the paint job was lackluster. It looks like the Artist had a difficult time painting on the small details. Especially his eyes and face. I can understand this because smaug's face is smaller then my finger nail. All in all I don't think this statue is worth the 125$ price. Should be more around 75$. I would only recommend this statue as a desk paperweight or something or for an office

  10. Save your Money
    Small is an understatement, and paint job is terrible. I only paid $50, because I had WetaDollars, but it isn't even worth getting for free.

  12. Underwhelmed By the Colour
    The model itself is nice, but the colour on the dragon is very muted.

  13. Disappointed
    The preview pics look wonderful, and I was looking forward to getting a less costly version of Smaug than the one selling for $699. I have all the EE gift sets, and I've never been disappointed - till now. But not only is the figure of Smaug much smaller than advertised, it is painted in very dull colors, so it is easy to overlook. I am surprised that this figure was approved for release in its current form, and I will think more than twice before ordering any more figures. (BTW, with the difference in the exchange rate, the cost of shipping to Canada, and tax and duties, Smaug cost me close to $200.00 Cdn. <sigh>)

  14. size does not matter
    If like me you can't get Smaug The Terrible, this smaller version will make you very happy. I prefer the scuplt of Smaug immersed partially in the gold, and parts of Erebor coming through. he may be small but he's all Smaug!

  15. Awesome!
    first time buying from weta and I'm not at all disappointed. Smaug-King under the mountain is an amazing statue, not the biggest I grant you but the level of detail is incredible and the price can't be snuffed at compared to the bigger smaug statue. Overall I'm extremely happy with Smaug and with Weta's service.

  16. Smaug - King Under The Mountain
    Stunning item. So detailed. Only downside is that Smaug wasn't as red/orange in the picture. More of a reddy brown. Apart from that would recommend 100%

  17. Small but nice
    I too was surprised to find it almost 4cm smaller than advertised (measured across the base), but do not really mind as it is still a very fetching figure. The rendition of the reptile skin on Smaug's flanks is truly amazing, which can't be said for the paintwork since the colours are a bit dull and subdued. In my infantile naivety, I almost expected to find a tiny little Swarovski crystal representing the Arkenstone half buried in the treasure. Still, no regrets.

  20. Hate to say I am disappointed
    The detail on Smaug is wonderful and up close I like it but it is just so dad gum small that it underwhelms. I have hundreds of pieces and I was so looking forward to this one but I am seriously thinking of returning it. I knew it was small but it is just sooo small and from a distance it looks like something red sitting on a yellow mound of shiny dirt. I really hate to say this. I love every other piece I have, but not this one.......

  21. There is something about you..
    It is a very beautiful piece. Paintings, colors and shapes are wonderful, however size was shorter than I expected.
    If you want to represent the statue better, you need to have powerful light on it. So that golds seem much more better.

  23. A beautiful dragon
    This Smaug is an amazing sculpt by Gary Hunt. The detail is there with a nice pose and great paint job. He is the right size and price point for those unable to order the larger Smaug. A worthy addition to any collection.
