Well, number 100/400 is home and I am stunned. This piece displays phenomenally.
Do you remember the first time you saw FoTR and you held your breath for a second when the Wraiths closed in on Frodo and the Morgul Blade was drawn? The compelling "hunger" in the vacant hoods that you could almost feel?
I kid you not, this piece evokes that same feeling every time I walk up and look at it. The randomness of the poses, the dirt and weathered detail on the Wraiths, it is all here. The sculpt really does convey the momentum of the Wraiths so well that it seems more like a frozen frame in time.
As for the exclusive piece (Frodo) it is much bigger than I thought it would be. It can stand alone as a small display. The colors and detail are better than I have ever seen on a small piece.
The base reminds me of the detail on the Stone Trolls with moss and other natural feel to it. The "stones" and cracks have a movie quality look that help the base to complete the scene (look closely at the 5th pic below at the floor). Also, the "jagged" edge of the base compliments the rest of the scene perfectly. It almost suggests this scene was frozen in time and ripped from Middle Earth and sent to your door.
I am a very particular collector and have returned pieces that just didn't cut it. This is just spot on. It is as if your mind is looking for things that "should" be there, and they all are.

Received mine in France on 24th, thank you Santa :banana
That piece is my first Lotr statue, there is no human face so I thought it will be perfect...... amazing statue... so heavy and such a cool base (look at the last pic)
As the shades come from the Dark, I took pictures in the dark :emperor
