    Today I am the happiest person around I think…

    I received a special figurine … which I have been looking for, for YEARS…

    So far I only know three people who possess one, Ken Crawford, a special collector from the US named Bill Pritchard (who got it
    from Jim Corless years ago)… and myself

    Indeed this is a priceless figurine, but I am amazed about the level of DETAIL it has, no other 54mm evern (christmas or LO) has reached such a level of sculpted decoration detail! also the weight is heavier than regular casts, it is a prototype, the metal used is not the same alloy. You can feel it in your hands… (like the [mith]54Proto2[/mith] [mith]54Proto3[/mith] and [mith]54Proto4[/mith])

    I’m afraid to ask how much does it cost such a mithril collectors treasure…. ! Congratulation Master Gildor :) Indeed !

    It has no price master Thingol … I really can’t put a price on this treasure, this is technically impossible… but negociations had begun around 500€ for it I think and those negociations never ended as I got it from elsewhere, and the original seller was, no matter the price, reluctant to give his away….

    I don’t know how much Kenakko paid for it, but I think it was a gift… I know Jim Corless may have got it as a gift but may have sold it to Bill Pritchard for some hundreds of dollars back in 2000 or so… before “tolkien mania”…

    as for mine… I got it by pure luck, as it was a gift too…

    Master Gildor, could you do us a favor and show All 4 54mm 1992 Protoypes alltogether on the same picture ?

    Gildor, all I can say reall is: “You deserve to hold that figure in your hand.”

    holding it in my hands is currently the only thing i can do alas… the base being apart, and the rarity of the figurine make it so that I do not dare to glue it together to display it in a glasscase :(

    ironic isn’t it…

    as for all the 1992 figurines…. well I miss some … especially the [mith]ME2[/mith] Milo… you mean the four 54mm prototypes I have?

    Just calm down, Gildor … there’ll come a day when your fingers will have ceased to tremble and then you can cope with it accordingly … for the moment, just enjoy :)

    Yes, I remember very well these white primed proto I saw in your 54mm glass cabinet.
    Having these with Saruman must be something !
