LORD OF THE RINGS: First Wave of Helmets!!!

Hey folks, Harry here... This is the second batch of images from this presskit of stuff from SIDESHOW/WETA COLLECTIBLES. The following is the first assortment of helmets... Strangely enough, some of the helmets that I saw being worked on in Weta's shop are not included... I'd say I saw about 12 or so different designs at least... and my very favorite was this awesome porcupine-ish design all made out of craggily iron-like material... I think it is for goblins... but then it might've been orc... to tell the truth... I don't remember. (Don't call me Reagan) Also, people have asked me about PRICING on these items... I don't see anything in amongst all this material that says... That could be a bad sign... Or it could be that they just haven't come up with a figure yet. I can say that thus far, SIDESHOW has been very very cost effective in their toys in the past. The $40 Poseable Frankenstein they made last year being a PRIME example of extreme quality at a reasonable cost. Let's hope we can afford these babies!

HARRY NOTE: The following is my favorite of the group!!!!

Here is what the guide says about the Helmets:

HELMS: These cast metal helms (helmets) are exact 1:4 scale miniatures of the helmets used in the "FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING." They have been expertly recreated by the same metalsmiths who made the full scale pieces for the film(s). Each sits on a classically turned pedestal that includes the name of the helm and the sculptor's signature.
