    I recently ordered the gandalf the grey, and gandalf the white statues from sideshow weta.
    Unfortunately, I missed the delivery of gandalf the white (why do these shipping companines think that people will be available at 1:00 pm?), and I should be getting me gandalf the grey at the end of the week.


    These will be my first purchases from sideshow weta besides the DVD statues and I am extremely excited.

    In case any of you are interested, I payed $115 american for gandalf the grey, and $140 american for gandalf the white.

    Pictures will be up when I get the products.

    So, I'm curious, does anyone else here collect sideshow weta .....:duh: stuff?

    I do Jesse.........I have 5 statues.

    Did you have to pay customs for the statues or is 115 for GTG included with shipping/customs? I've never bought from the states.

    $115 after shipping, but not before duty.
    there was a $30 CAD tax going through customs.

    I just got my gandalf the white and it's great! #2826/3000

    a few paint errors, but I got it at a discout (compared to what it was listed for elseware) and I love it nonetheless.

    cheers to Ryan from Kultofathena.com for his great service. :draught:

    Ryan and KOA is a great retail store.

    I avoid buying SSW products from the states cause of custom charges. I did pick up an Elessar for 172cdn at a local retailer, that's like 145 U.S.

    I also collect the SSW items. I have around 40 pieces. Most of them I bought directly from Sideshow.

    I just recieved my Gandalf the Grey statue and I couldn't be happier.
    I bought it off of Ebay with Directbuyitnow, who has over 400 transcations, and a 100 % (!!!) feedback rating.

    I'd definitly recommended doing business with him. I'd also recommend buying either of these stautes, they are magnificent.

    Oh, and Cjg, have you posted pics of your collection anywhere? I'd love to see it.

    The ones I personally own are Treebeard, the Morgul Lord, and Ringwraith on Steed. They're all very impressive, my favorite being the Steed. It just looks evil.

    I have just started collecting sideshow stuff. I bought the Moria orc swordsman. Nice piece I am very happy with it.
    I was able to get the Mouth of Sauron in a second chance offer from sideshow - that is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow.
    I got the Balrog for $115 today on ebay. It was such a steal I couldn't resist.
    And finally I pre-ordered the king of the dead because I think this one is going to go quickly. I saw pics of it on sideshow's website from the toyfair today. It looks VERY cool.

    I would love to get the ringwraith on steed, but $500 + on ebay is just too much.

    thanks! I'm trying not to start a new addiction - I have about 14 or 15 of the UC LOTR weapons, but have pre-ordered aragorn at the gates, the king of the dead and the war mask.

    My wife is gonna kill me. Although at this rate I'll have to buy a bigger house which may make her happy after all!!!
