Lord of the Rings 'Gollum' action figure
Perhaps THE most recognisable face from Peter Jackson's trilogy, due to the impressive talents from both Andy Serkis and Weta, Gollum is now famous the world over.
This is an impressive sculpt and Gollum comes with a sound base, whereby pressing a button will make him say one of a number of his classic phrases....MY PRECIOUS!
Produced by Toybiz in 2002, these figures feature fantastic articulation, detailing and attractive packaging, and therefore are a must for fans of the trilogy. Amen.
J R R Tolkien studied and taught at Oxford University, and while there he started a writing group called The Inklings, which counted among its members C.S. Lewis and Owen Barfield (a little known fact is that here at OCC, we can be sometimes be spotted in 'The Eagle and Child', chosen and preferred pub of the Inklings, enjoying a pint of fine ale, sitting in the EXACT spot where Tolkien himself used to sit).
It was also at Oxford, while grading a paper, that he spontaneously wrote a short line about "a hobbit."
