Iron Studios Gives Lord Of The Rings Fans The Cave Troll To Rule Them AllJose Lopez
While Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy certainly got a bit bloated with the last two installments, the first film still stands as one of the best fantasy epics of our time. Fellowship of the Rings is, hands-down, the superior LOTR cinematic experience to rule all others. One of the examples why is the amazing battle against the Orcs in the Tomb of Balin, where the Fellowship face off against the Cave Troll. Bringing that moment to life, Iron Studios has unveiled their Cave Troll Art Scale Statue and I am in love.
Its very easy to underestimate the size of this Troll. While he (or she?) is in 1/10 scale, this thing is huge when compared to the human-size characters from Lord of the Rings. As a result, this big boy measures in at just under 17” tall and 18” wide! Now that is a Cave Troll worth having!
As usual, the sculptors over at Iron Studios have outdone themselves, bring this massive monster to life in a fantastic way. This thing looks like it just stepped out of my television and I am extremely excited to see how it looks in hand.
Iron Studios continues to force me to ask myself where the heck I am going to fit all of the awesome stuff they keep putting out and this Cave Troll is certainly no different. I look forward to figuring it out.
The Iron Studios The Lord of the Rings: Cave Troll Deluxe BDS Art Scale 1/10 Scale Statue is available for pre-order and is slated to drop Q3, 2021.
ABOUT THIS 1:10 SCALE STATUE
Sideshow and Iron Studios are proud to announce the latest from the Art Scale 1:10 line – Cave Troll Deluxe! From The Lord of the Rings, the Cave Troll Deluxe 1:10 Art Scale Statue comes with a detailed hand-painted base and is part of a battle diorama based on The Fellowship of the Ring movie.
Deep in the caves of Moria, in a marble mausoleum where the Tomb of Balin is located, the dwarf warrior who is Gimli’s cousin, brave warriors prepare for combat, to the sound of Orcs drums and the warning of the Captain of Gondor Boromir for closing the chamber doors … “A Cave Troll”. Thus, in the midst of an attack by a horde of Orcs, the monstrous ape-like / reptilian-looking monstrous humanoid of Tolkien’s works was presented in the vision of director Peter Jackson in Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, and now armed with his war hammer, collar and bondage chain to the Orcs of Sauron, he will invade the collection of fans and collectors with his impressive statue the Cave Troll Deluxe BDS 1:10 Art Scale Statue – Lord of the Rings from Iron Studios.
Created by Morgoth, the first Dark Lord and the primordial source of evil in Middle Earth, the Trolls, throughout the ages, have been divided into different categories, but maintaining their basic primal characteristics. They are beings of great stature, extraordinary strength and skin as hard as rock. If exposed to sunlight, these creatures turn to stone and remain so for eternity. They are violent and cruel creatures, but stupid, so many are used as pack animals and fighting animals by the Orcs of Sauron’s armies.
This Troll is part of the Battle of Moria diorama, inspired by the scene described above from the film The Fellowship of the Ring, featuring figures from the entire Brotherhood of the Ring, but it may well compose the collection of fans of mythological monsters and iconic creatures from the cinemas.
