Although his screen time was comparatively brief, Isildur was nevertheless a pivotal character in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and embodied some of Weta Workshop’s finest costume and weapon work.
With intricate inlays of brass and elvish writing, Narsil (which ultimately became Andúril) was one such example. As the blade was to be shattered by the foot of Sauron during the prologue, the sequence required a collection of breakaway swords.
These swords, cut into the same exacting seven individual shards, were glued together and broken again and again to capture the moment.
Distilling this complex scene into collectible form, was senior sculptor Daniel Cockersell - no stranger to Middle-earth, having formed part of Weta Workshop’s physical sculpting team on The Hobbit. Isildur stands complete in 1:6 scale: gazing at the One Ring, broken hilt of Narsil still clutched in one hand.
