This is a review for the order of the Orcrist sword from Peter Jacksons' Hobbit Triology.
I have to say that other shopping websites should take a lesson from Movie Figures. The website is easy to navigate and everything you need to know is clearly shown.
When i was searching for an Orcrist replica i naturally went to the Weta website first (Weta make the actual props used in the film) and for an Orcrist replica they wanted nearly $10,000 NZD! Other websites such as noble collection were all asking £200+ but Movie figures had it for £50 less than anyone else. With free delivery! how can anyone argue with that? And for such a specific, large and difficult item, shipping was rapid. like really rapid. within 2 days of ordering i had my item, considering its a sword, thats pretty amazing!I also received a text on the day as to when it would get there, nice touch!
The product itself is nothing short of amazing! The quality of the blade is near perfection, as is the detail. It has a lot of weight to it and feels great to hold (no innuendo intended). For a replica fan and a Tolkien fan, its as good as it gets. The only problem i had with the item is the wall mount. Although very well made, the two hooks on the back for attaching it to the wall dont feel anywhere near strong enough to hold the weight of the sword. Having said that, i spend most of the time holding it so that really wasnt an issue for me.
I would highly recommend Movie Figures to anyone searching for their memorabilia needs! Great website, great products, great price, great service and great delivery. I will definitely be going back there to continue my LOTR/Hobbit collection!
