Azog the Defiler on Warg 1/6 Scale Statue (LE 500)
By Weta Collectibles
SOLD OUT
Our Price: $999.99


General Safety Warning: Products sold by BBTS may be intended for Adult Collectors. Products may contain sharp points, small parts, choking hazards, and other elements not suitable for children under 16 years old.

PLEASE NOTE - This item may only ship by UPS due to its size.

Edition Size: 500
Dimensions: 17.7" x 25.6" x 16.1" (H x W x D)

Please Note - the images are of a pre-production prototype. Each finished piece is painted by hand and variations will occur.

A huge and pale Gundabad Orc, Azog™ has ruled by will and might the northern tribes for many decades, leading them to victory in battles against their hated foes, the Dwarves of the line of Durin. Outside the East Gate of Moria he beheads the Dwarf King Thror and comes close to killing his grandson Thorin, who repays the great Orc by cutting off his arm.

In the years that follow little is heard from Azog and many come to believe him dead, but in truth the Defiler lives on, recovering his strength and replacing his severed limb with a jagged metal proxy.

Brooding on thoughts of revenge and the final destruction of the Longbeards, Azog bides his time until the commencement of Thorin Oakenshield’s quest to retake Erebor sees the Orc emerge on the back of a great white Warg to lead a troop of hunters across Middle-earth in pursuit of the Dwarven Company.

Azog™ the Defiler on Warg is an extremely challenging piece to make.

Conceived in the same 1/6 scale as our character statues, Azog looks incredibly menacing when posed with his arch enemy, Thorin Oakenshield (see image #4 on the left). Or indeed any of the Dwarves in the series.

More than 2 ft long (650mm) and 17 inches tall (450mm), the Warg alone is bigger than some dogs and our prototype weighs in at 30 lbs (13.5kg). It's likely to be about 35lbs (16 kg) when cast in polystone - about the same as the average 4 year-old child.

The mere logistics of handling a piece like this, let alone making molds and removing cast sculptures from the molds is an incredibly time consuming process that requires exceptional skill and a great deal of patience from the craftsmen entrusted with this task.

Both bigger and approx 11lbs (5kg) heavier than our Barad-dûr - Fortress of Sauron environment, each individual piece will take several days to mold, cast and paint. A strong steel 'skeleton' or armature concealed inside is needed to make this ultra-dynamic pose possible. It's the most challenging cast we've ever come up with.

Azog the Defiler on Warg will be made in an edition size of only 500 - like previous Limited Edition pieces from Middle-earth, it is certain to become very collectible and you will want to be in quick.

This beautiful piece of art is the result of several months' worth of trials to determine what would be the ultimate pose for Azog and his Warg. Patience is a virtue and good things come to those who wait.

The piece was sculpted by Lindsey Crummett. Like all our collectibles it was created by a large team of the same artists and craftspeaople who work on our movies. You can see more of Lindsey's work in our book The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Chronicles: Creatures and Characters.
