    If they use good stuff it should last a long time, but hopefully is accessible in the event of failure. I can't think of any light ups they have ever done actually...

    I might pass on this because of the light-up function. I have the Smaug bust (big fan) and love the Balrog. Honestly, how many times would you use a battery powered light-up? Add the risk of it breaking sooner or later.

    Would just be worrying all the time of it still works instead of enjoying the statue.

    I never understand this thinking. Why have a thing if it might break? Nothing lasts forever, hopefully they make it user serviceable.

    Well sorry.

    Simply how I feel about it. Just ironic, if it was just a bust I would be all over it.

    Don't be sorry, I just don't get the idea of not buying something because it can break. Worst case scenario is you get it fixed or don't bother and it's the same as if it never had the feature in the first place.

    Definitely one of the most impressive light up features in a collectable, nice to see Weta pushing the envelope. Curious to see what pricing is on this and Treebeard.

    I'd be scared to see the pricing on this. Weta charges a premium for these "bigger" pieces.

    Fell beast was overpriced, so hopefully it is not more than that one.

    if it is more, defn count me out of this one. I need a cool Balrog, so it's one of the few characters I'd consider paying that price for.
