    I doubt they would use that good of LEDs. Most consumer ones are 10-25K hours, which still would be more than would ever be needed unless you used this as a nightlight or something.

    Worst case scenario you'd have to pry the base open and replace.

    I'm thinking this wil be priced at or around the Balrog bust.

    Yes, I hope it's no more than that, but the last few have been that much or more so who knows.

    I hope the price is reasonable. If it's more than Minas Tirith, they may have trouble selling them unless the edition size is small.

    Yes, if it's more than MT I think that may make people pause. Sculpt and paint look great (light up is a big bonus) and people have been asking for this for a long time so it definitely has that going for it. I bought MT from an individual at a fair price and not from Weta. At the time I thought MT was expensive and had more time to order.

    If I feel the price is stupidly expensive I may pause, BUT Barad-D?r is easily one of my favorite pieces of polystone and this with Grond and hopefully the Black Gate eventually would look great together, so this is definitely at the top of my want list.

    This might be to cool to pass on.

    I'm psyched about the light-up feature. (I believe it wasn't allowed in earlier versions of their LOTR license, but they seem to have corrected that.) I'm sure it will look great on this piece, but I'm reeeally looking forward to it being used on future pieces. Specifically, I'm really, really hoping to see a Doors of Durin entrance to Moria with light-up runes.

    Or maybe a Frodo or Sam with the Fial of Galadriel. Gandalf on the bridge? Lots of interesting possibilities.

    Yes, lots of possibilities. The Doors of Durin would would be neat, now I guess a Mt. Doom wouldn't be out of the question either.

    With this same light up ability I'm hoping SSC will attempt a new Ghost Rider.

    That light up feature does look good, can't wait.

    I'm in agreement with you guys. I can't see myself passing on Minas Morgul. Fortunately I've got some Weta dollars to throw at it, which will probably just cover shipping...

    A lighted "Doors of Durin" would be amazing and one that a lot of us have been requesting for a long, long time, as well.

    As for Mt. Doom, I was fortunate enough to pick up Kyle's amazing custom "Sammath Naur" piece, so I'm good there. I guess the lava could have been lit but that was beyond the scope of his project. It looks wonderful, though.

    Oh, MAN! That is EXACTLY what I've been hoping Weta would make for a very long time! That's gorgeous! If they offered something like that with a glowing function, I can pretty much guarantee I'd just hand them all my credit cards and not ask any more questions.
