For generations the realm of Gondor had been kingless, but at the end of the Third Age an heir would return to claim the empty throne. Elessar they would name him, the bright hope of his people, though his friends knew him as Aragorn, or called him simply Strider.
With the return of Isildur’s heir at this time of great need, the ancient vaults of Minas Tirith were cast open and imperial livery that had long lain folded beneath layers of dust was brought forth to fly again from the city’s masts.
Helmets for the King’s Guard were designed and made for The Return of the King at Weta Workshop, but ultimately didn’t make it into the final cut of the film. It could be assumed that these striking specialized variants of the Minas Tirith Court of the Fountain Guards might nonetheless stand vigil somewhere just out of frame.
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!
