    I am thinking in the line of them doing more beasts in this bust form. You get a nice closer look a the details. Sort of the closest thing to the old Sideshow Legendary Scale busts of the Balrog and Cave Troll.

    Ridiculous price. Maybe would go for it at $500 tops. Patience. Just like the Smaug bust, my guess is that this'll be on sale in 2019 for cheaper.

    This one is an LE of 750 and LOTR. A much different situation.

    Asking twice the price of Smaug is still pretty greedy(Smaug was $349 when it first was up for order) and considering they had to discount the Smaug bust heavily to get rid of them I don't see this selling out without some similar help.

    I see your point. I think there is more appeal with a set ES than an open edition like Smaug. Not to mention the Smaug statue itself was also pulling sales from the bust as some people prefer full sculpts to busts. There is also the fact that many did not care for Smaug himself more than they did for mosts of the LOTR beasts.

    We'll see how this fares during this year's Thanksgiving sales.

    Yes, a set ES is almost always preferable and maybe would increase cost to produce per piece, but still wanting DOUBLE? Smaug bust came out well after the full statue as I recall, so I don't see much overlap and people who don't collect busts won't care about this either. I had both and even though I like full figs most of the time I sold the full Smaug and kept the bust. Something about that goofy odd shaped base they try to use instead of just giving you a base and a wall mount doesn't work as well with this as it did with Smaug might be another reason it isn't sitting right with me.
