Asmus Toys’ The Lord of the Rings Crown Series has added a new figure to its lineup. The company’s first figure in the series was an impressive 12″ tall version of Gandalf the Grey. While the Wandering Wizard looked great, he pales compared to the White Wizard and his equestrian companion. He is Gandalf the White, and he comes back to us now at the turn of the tide … to take our money. Gandalf is not alone in this task. With him is the lord of all horses, Shadowfax.
Sadly, Shadowfax is a solid polystone statue and cannot be posed. However, Gandalf more than makes up for it with his numerous accessories, 36 points of articulation, and finely tailored clothing. The duo is already sold out on Asmus Toys’ official website; however, some are still available from the Big Bad Toy Store. The Gandalf the White and Shadowfax set is priced at $380 and is expected to ship sometime between January and March of next year.
Gandalf and Shadowfax come with the following features and accessories:
- Super detailed head in super detail and likeness to the movie actor, with hand glued real wool beard and hair.
- One pair palm opened aged man hand
- One pair relax gesture aged man hand
- One pair of weapon holding gesture aged man hand
- One finger pointing gesture aged man left hand
- One pure white patterned vest
- One milky white cape
- One pair of white patterned long sleeved robe
- One pair of white pants
- One milky white belt with pattern printing
- One pair of handmade fabric boots
- Glamdring (with elvish printing)
- A Gandalf the White wizard staff
- One Asmus Toys Crown series display base with grassland diorama
