Designed for discerning collectors, the Masters Collection represents the pinnacle of Weta Workshop craftsmanship. Embodied in each of these extraordinary statues, you’ll find an exacting attention to detail. Materials of the highest quality. The latest technology, meshed with the finest handcraft. A reverence for the source material that can only come from artists who have lived and breathed Middle-earth for over twenty years. More than collectibles, these are sculptures of fine art.

Making Gollum

Two and a half years in development, Gollum has been crafted by Master Sculptor Jamie Beswarick, a member of Weta Workshop’s sculpting team for more than twenty years.

Featuring hand-placed natural hair, translucent skin, and cloth of real leather, this is the first time Weta Workshop has represented Gollum in 1:3 scale. Near clear, water-effect resin lies the creature’s ill-fated Ring, undisturbed on the naked stone, caught in a moment in time.

To celebrate the release of this very special first Masters Collection sculpture, we have created Gollum in a Limited Edition of just 589: one statue to mark each year of Gollum’s life in Middle-earth.
