Weta's Bag-End Is Ready - Make Me Tiny...Make Me Small...

.....Make me tiny ...make me small....I want to live in a Hobbit Hole :) Weta Workshop's collector edition of Bag-End is ready and looks great!

"Nestled in the gently rolling green hills of the Shire is the village of Hobbiton, a sleepy assemblage of stone buildings and burrows, home to the diminutive Hobbits. Overlooking the village from the hill at the end of Bagshot Row is Bag End, the stately underground abode of Bilbo Baggins, an eccentric Hobbit widely acknowledged about town as having cracked some years ago, and his cousin and ward Frodo Baggins, who is certainly in the process of cracking. Consorting with Wizards, Dwarves and other folk with dangerous ideas, the Bagginses maintain a museum of sorts in their home, the various rooms of Bag End being stuffed with treasures and trinkets accumulated over the years by Bilbo either on his adventures or as gifts from his peculiar company"

I have a feeling that this very limited edition (only 1,111 will be made) will be sold-out in a matter of hours. This adorable Bag-End was crafted by some of the artists that worked on the original movie set and features not only the exterior of Bilbo's home but also the interior based on the original plans Peter Jackson used. Is there a wizard around ? I want to be small....make me tiny...make me small....I want to live in this Hobbit hole :)
