One of the most powerful Wizards in all of Middle-earth, Gandalf the Grey joins the quest to reclaim the Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor and the great treasure that lies within its stone halls from a fire breathing dragon, Smaug the Terrible. Gandalf’s staff appears to be a natural piece of wood, but the crown of the shaft holds something supernatural. Within the crown, the wood has grown around a hollow, white lattice-shaped bulb. The lattice is vaguely Elven in design, and holds a great power. At Gandalf’s command, he can cause the crown to illuminate and light his way at night, or to spark a blue flame to ignite fire. The staff is also imbued with a great strength, allowing Gandalf to shatter stone with one strike. This authentically detailed replica is a reproduction casting of the actual filming prop built by the production Art Department in New Zealand and used in the motion picture, THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY. United Cutlery, industry leader in fine movie reproductions, has meticulously recreated the prop using only the finest grade materials and craftsmanship. Close attention to coloring and detail was a top priority. The polyresin Staff is 73” overall, featuring finely cast details and authentic hand painted coloring. It is presented with an Elven styled wall display featuring Gandalf’s “G” rune, and includes a certificate of authenticity.
