Art-Box is gesigneerd door de acteur die Dwalin speelt: Graham McTavish
Undertaking to return to Erebor, the lost kingdom of the Dwarves, wherein a Dragon lay waiting, Thorin Oakenshield seeks to gather a Company of able souls of diverse skills and unshakable conviction. As the heir to the stolen throne and upon whose shoulders the future of the line of Durin depends, Thorin Oakenshield feels keenly the threat of failure and what it will bring – a fiery death for himself and the loss of his people’s hope.
To that end, Thorin Oakenshield calls upon those whom he can trust above all others, and in none could his faith be more certain than Dwalin the Dwarf, his cousin and friend. Tall for a Dwarf and a warrior of renown among his kind, Dwalin the Dwarf has fought at Thorin Oakenshield’s side many times and the two spar regularly to hone each others skills. More like a brother than distant kin, Dwalin the Dwarf is loyal to the last hair in his beard and would willingly lay down his own life if it would save Thorin Oakenshield’s.
In battle the scarred old warrior wields the mighty axes Ukhlat and Umraz, and a great hammer near as tall as he stands. Upon his arms and scalp are tattoos as angular and hard-edged in design as the Dwarf himself, and upon his brow is knitted a frown etched by years hardship. Yet Dwalin the Dwarf is not cheerless, for Dwarves feel all things deeply. Grudges he bears, but Dwalin the Dwarf also laughs loudest and with all his heart in times of mirth and celebration. No stronger second could Thorin Oakenshield have hoped for in his quest.
Weta continues the legacy of producing finely crafted, highly detailed 1/6 scale collectible polystone statues from Middle-earth. The essence of each character expertly captured in every piece.
Dwalin the dwarf was sculpted by Greg Tozer.
It takes approximately 400-500 hours to design, sculpt, model-make, mould and paint the prototype for each new character.
