7. Life Size Gauntlet of Sauron (Limited Edition of 1,000)


Wearable actor-scale reproduction of the gauntlet worn by the Dark Lord Sauron? Yes, please. Crafted of genuine leather and iron, the gauntlet features over 35 plate mail parts with an iron black finish and intaglio surface engraving, plus a gold-plated One Ring. It's a Limited Edition of 1000 pieces worldwide.

8. The Making of Middle Earth

A comprehensive and authoritative resource allows you to enrich your Tolkien experience with the most in-depth exploration yet of the sources that influenced Tolkien's masterpieces. Richly illustrated throughout in full color.

9. Dwarven Coins from Smaug's Horde

Weta / Via

These coins are exact replicas drawn from molds of the original coins created for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug by the 3 Foot 7 Art Department. The five various designs are made from metal (zinc alloy) plated to look every bit as precious as if they were made of solid gold.

10. Sting (Full Size Limited Edition)

Weta Workshop / Via

This is a made-to-order actual weapon that comes with a disclaimer that the metal-smiths of Weta Workshop will not be liable for any injury or death. Seriously.

For a couple thousand less than the limited edition, you can get this Sting where the inlaid vine on the South American cocobolo wood grip is not pure silver, but vinyl transfer.

A bit gimicky but nonetheless cool, this Sting made by a different company also glows blue (probably can even glow blue sans orcs).

11. Sting Letter Opener

If there's no room in your Hobbit hole (or budget) for the full size weapon, then get this Sting letter opener. It gives you the power to make quick work of any envelope that crosses your path.
