Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy of films have gone down in history as classics, bringing excitement and pathos to film and Tolkien fans the world over. One of the most iconic scenes in the final installment of the series, The Return of the King, is Frodo’s and Gollum’s journey into the lair of the spider-demon, Shelob. Prime 1 Studio has recreated this dreadful moment with a masterfully-crafted statue that is sure to make collectors happy.

Standing at about 18 inches tall, this piece gives me the heebie-jeebies just looking at the promotional photos. The look of concern sculpted on Frodo’s face as Gollum watches him in secret, eager to see his betrayal of the Hobbit play out, is just perfectly executed by the Prime 1 Studio team.

It never fails to amaze me how companies like Prime 1 manage to fit so much tone and information into what is essentially a sliver of a scene or set from a movie. While Frodo and Gollum are fully presented with this piece, the base they stand upon is just enough to tell me what I should be seeing in my mind’s eye. 

Everything from the cave floor to the cobwebbed skeletal remains hint at the larger lair they’re making their way through and it never fails to do its job. Added elements aid this, such as the LED light-up feature inside of the Light of Eärendil that Frodo carries. I will never get tired to how these many elements come together to give us collectors such an amazing statue.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is the culmination of the magnificent Lord of the Rings trilogy from esteemed director Peter Jackson. In the Second Act, unable to kill Frodo himself, Gollum leads the hapless hobbit into the lair of the spider-demon, Shelob!

Prime 1 Studio skillfully captures the moment wherein a vulnerable, but courageous Frodo Baggins ventures into Cirith Ungol, oblivious to the betrayal he is about to befall. Gollum urges Frodo into Shelob’s lair; his plan: to steal the One Ring from Frodo after he has fallen prey to the spider-demon! The facial subtlety of Frodo’s growing concern and Gollum’s malicious intent have both been captured by our talented sculptors. We have used synthetic hair not only on Frodo’s hobbit-feet but also on Gollum’s head to emphasize the superior quality of our statue. Our studio painters have adeptly rendered the journey-worn clothes of Frodo and Gollum’s sickly pallor. Frodo strides forth aided by the small, but mighty, Sting in his right hand and the Phial of Galadriel (with water imbued by the Light of Eärendil, illuminated by our built-in LED) held aloft in his left.

At about 18 inches, Frodo and Gollum are presented together on a mixed-media, environmental base that encapsulates the dread that only the land of Mordor can elicit. They are surrounded by tell-tale signs of the spider-demon with bony scraps and eerie, spider-silk webbing. Familiar Tengwar script surrounds the base, denoting the Black speech that is painful for all but hobbits to hear: “Ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazg gimbatul, ash nazg thrakatulûk, agh burzum-ishi krimpatul”.
