    Sauron's Mace!?!?! I thought they'd abandoned that project because it would be too costly for them and the consumer? Crap though, this is my most anticipated piece! I hope it sees the light of day!
    Couldn't care less for the sword though...It's just an unused prop that got a second of screentime when you see the Witchking getting dressed up for war in Minas Morgul. Waste of time if you ask me, but whatever. I don't have to buy it.

    And Eomer's Helm eh? You'd think they'd make his sword Guthwine first, but hey, I'm not complaining. I love that helm!

    Damn man, I thought I was done with this collection, but now it looks like I've still got a couple of grand to spend! Oh well :D

    I really hope Eomer's Helm, this LE Elven Warrior sword (that'll piss a lot of people off who've already got the shoddy unlimited version), and Sauron's Mace are put into production.

    Please post pics as soon as they're available. Thanks :)

    I see absolutely no point in having Sauron's sword made, but if they make Eomer's helm I will definitely scrimp and save to buy that baby! Is it a full sized helm? I'm guessing so or they probably woudl have said "mini helm"

    Indeed I have, and I wasn't very impressed with it. The handle was obviously the main problem for me, and the extremely noticeable seam running right down the length of it. The problem wasn't so much that the seam is there (though that's still not nice), as I understand that's probably the only way they could've managed the handle for this particular sword, but the inconsistency of it. At some points it was fairly smooth, and yet in others there were gaps. The gold leaf design also suffered in terms of alignment because of the seam too. I'm not saying I could do any better of course, but it had a very unprofessional look to it. Perhaps that was just a particularly poor example I saw?

    The blade looked good tho...

    I was a bit disappointed that there was a seam at all. but while it's not the nicest piece of the collection, it's not entirely "shoddy" in my opinion. Unfortunately, I understand that they were limited to a synthetic material for a full production run, and there's only so much they can do. But it could have been better. It's a nice piece, and I wasn't going to have an incomplete collection by skipping it. Then again, I didn't pay $300 for mine either.

    I just wanted to know wheter you actually had seen it or if you were going by what someone else was saying. Chances are I'll get the limited edition as well, give away/sell the UE. But I guess we'll see if UC comes to the pump first.

    I just want that helmet! If they're never going to make Theoden's helmet, I'll have to settle for Eomer's.
