1:30 scale miniature statue

Greatest of the Nazgûl, Sauron’s terrible Ringwraith servants, the Witch-king was once lord of the realm of Angmar. Now he haunts the ruins of Dol Guldur, leading his fellow Wraiths against the united Elves and Istari.

Display the Witch-king in your Dol Guldur diorama, surrounded by the servants of Sauron.

From the same team who worked on The Hobbit motion picture trilogy, comes Dol Guldur: A 1:30 Scale Collection. For the first time ever, collect your very own Middle-earth scene piece by piece and populate it with miniature figures of your choosing.

A place of dread, Dol Guldur is a ruined fortress deep in Mirkwood. Long was it thought to have been abandoned, but quietly have dark things crept into its passages, and beneath spells of concealment the Dark Lord Sauron has gathered his servants to him.

Rumour of a Necromancer drew Gandalf to the hill of Sorcery, where his suspicions were confirmed. Now the White Council must put for its strength to rescue the Grey Wizard and put the forces of darkness to flight. The stage is set for a battle of immortal powers.

After a lot of debate we decided that the first scene we’d do at 1:30 scale would be the Dol Guldur scene from The Hobbit. This is a great scene because you have so many of Middle-earth’s big heavy-hitters in it: you’ve got elves, you’ve got the Istari, you’ve got Sauron and you’ve got Ringwraiths.

Daniel Falconer - Concept Designer & Author, Weta Workshop

Weta Workshop has developed its 1:30 scale range with accessibility for the collector in mind. Rather than one large bespoke piece, each scene fits together as a series of modular elements that can be built up over time. Collectors can then place miniature characters within the scene in limitless configurations.

The environments are available in a Limited Edition of 500 each.

Add to your set with more characters and environment pieces!

All the figures in this series are Open Edition.

Figures are made of metal, on polyresin bases

  1. Great darkness for a little masterpiece
    French : Avec la livraison par DPD en Europe j\'ai toujours un peu peur qu\'ils n\'abîment les œuvres de Weta, mais pour une fois aucun problème de livraison à constater mise à part un retard de deux semaines, mais Weta n\'y est pour rien ! Sinon que dire de la figurine ? Magnifique, car malgré sa petite taille (1:30) les détails sont au rendez-vous, tout en finesse et en jeu d\'obscurité. Rien à dire, le métal n\'est pas vrillé. Parfait, merci à Gary Hunt et à son équipe pour ce travail de maître !

    English : With the delivery by DPD in Europe I am still a bit afraid that they will damage the works of Weta, but for once no delivery problem to note except a delay of two weeks, but Weta is not at all responsible! But what about the figurine? Magnificent, because despite its small size (1:30) the details are there, all in finesse and in play of darkness. Nothing to say, the metal is not twisted. Perfect, thanks to Gary Hunt and his team for this masterful work!

  2. Great Piece - Not So Great Price
    I did not expect that it would be this good, considering how small it is. Heavy and high quality. But the price of these things is a turn off. If I buy all 4 figures I may as well buy 1 big one.

  3. These turned out great
    Very surprised how good these turned out. It\'s a small scale but the sculpt and paint apps are great, it\'s affordable and doesn\'t take up much space on your shelf. I really hope they make a lot more characters in this scale. I\'ll definitely buy the next lot.

  6. Affordable not?
    Hi, I'm an avid collector from Weta and Eaglemoss. You mention on the video making an affordable scene. The whole scene would cost a fortune, Eaglemoss did great lead, hand painted pieces for less than £8 each so where do you get £38 from? Surely you should reconsider your pricing structure!

  7. Price issues
    Sorry, Weta, I have loved ALL Weta pieces, but this... 50 bucks for an 8cm statue is insane.
