Blade Center, Inc., a retailer of top-of-the-line cutlery that includes an extensive collection of fantasy swords and weapons, will be offering collectors the opportunity to pre-order items from the brand new line of weapons from The Hobbit movie trilogy.
Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be released December 14, 2012 and will be followed by two sequels in subsequent years. Collectors won’t have to wait that long to get up close and personal with the films’ weaponry though. As early as this October, collectible items from these highly anticipated prequels to The Lord of the Rings will be available for pre-order at the Blade Center website.
Blade Center prides itself on stocking a wide variety of products and offering collectors some of the best weapons available at extremely competitive prices. The same will be true of The Hobbit collection. Blade Center promises discount prices on these collectibles, something it says is possible because the company buys "in large quantities from manufacturers in order to get unbelievable deals,” so they can pass those savings onto customers.
Products being made available this fall at BladeCenter.com include Glamdring, the sword of the wizard Gandalf the Grey, the staff of Gandalf the Grey, Orcrist, the Sword of dwarf king Thorin Oakenshield, Sting, the Sword of Bilbo Baggins, and Sting’s scabbard. The weapons are being produced by the same company that brought collectors more than fifty licensed weapons and prop replicas from The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The producer of these beautifully crafted items promises that each one “will be exactly replicated from the actual film props created for the film production.”
Those with an eye for detail have already observed differences between some of the weapons designed for the original Lord of the Rings trilogy and those appearing in images from the upcoming Hobbit movies. The staff of Gandalf the Grey, for example, is noticeably different. Enthusiasts are also especially keen to glimpse Orcrist, the “Goblin cleaver.” Richard Armitage, the actor who plays Thorin Oakenshield, told Total Film magazine that the movie prop is “bloody heavy! But it’s absolutely beautiful to look at.”
Interested collectors can check the Blade Center website for updates and pre-order information, as the soon-to-be-released weapons from The Hobbit trilogy are going to be in high demand. Blade Center says that it does not sell “factory seconds or knock-offs” and all of their products are factory sealed and are covered by manufacturer warranties. BladeCenter.com is working to become the website of choice for all Tolkien fans and memorabilia collectors who want authentically reproduced weapons from The Hobbit movies without journeying to Middle Earth.
Lovers of Tolkien’s tales in literature and on the big screen alike will be interested in owning a piece of this detailed, beautiful weaponry. Many of these well-made replicas are even expected to become heirlooms of a sort and families and collectors will, as Tolkien’s Elrond advises Thorin and Gandalf in the book version of The Hobbit, “Keep them well!”
