These collectibles and prop replicas, created by the original film artists and under license from Warner Bros. Consumer Products, will be available for order later this year.
Two of these items are exclusively for sale at Comic-Con International, including a figurine of Thorin Oakenshield bearing a shield. 500 of 700 1:6 scale polystone statues will be available for purchase at San Diego (US$249 limit 2 per customer). The other 200 figurines will be for sale in October at the Weta Cave in New Zealand and at the Ring*Con in Germany.
