Replicas: scaled down Lord of the Rings

The process of making a film is often an ever-changing journey. One such changed aspect was the helm worn by the Witch King during The Return of the King. While this initial design was produced and even had scenes shot, it was ultimately decided that its resemblance to Sauron's own helm could be confusing for audiences. Therefore, it was replaced with the Morgul Lord War Mask seen in the final cut of the film.
Greatest of the Nazgûl was their leader, the Witch-king of Angmar. Once a mortal man lured by the promise of power, the former human king fell under Sauron's sway until he was little more than an extension of the Dark Lord's presence, his own identity long forgotten.

A formless anger, fear was his greatest weapon and it was said that he would not fall by anyone's hand. For centuries he served his dark lord and led the campaign that destroyed Arnor in the north and brought war to Gondor in the south. Even being sealed in a magically preserved tomb could not contain the Witch King, who was recalled from beyond the tomb to serve his master once more.
Each 1:4 scale Helm is made of polystone and comes in an edition of only 750.
Accompanying your Limited Edition helm: an exclusive behind-the-scenes insert written by Weta Workshop's senior concept designer and writer, Daniel Falconer, detailing how the film version was brought to the big screen!
