Tolkien Wishlist: If I Were a Rich Man

…yubby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dum…

I’m positive that I’ll never stop collecting which also means my Tolkien wishlist will never stop growing. I would say many of the items in my list are possible, but I do have some things that are really expensive, I’m talking $100+ USD. If I had money to spare, these are items I’d add to my collection without a second thought:

Aragorn’s Crown

$199.95

My collection doesn’t have nearly enough Aragorn-related items.

Aragorn's Crown


Herugrim

$150-300

The most beautiful sword from all six films, I will fight you on this.

Folio Book Editions

The Hobbit: $56.95
The Silmarillion: 69.95
The Lord of the Rings: $189.95

These books cost about $316 altogether, they’ll be mine when I win the lottery.

Folio Tolkien


Silver Acorn Pendent

$99.00

Okay, this $1 less than 100 but it’s close enough. If it has to do with Bilbo, I need it.


The Complete History of Middle-earth

$170-280

I only own the first 5 volumes of the Histories of Middle-earth because the other ones are pricey. If I could, I’d buy this boxset.

Faramir Statue

$249.00

I remember seeing this statue for the first time at NYCC a couple years ago and it is even more beautiful in person.


60th Anniversary Edition of LOTR

~ $102.00

Such a pretty edition of LOTR! Look at those colors.

Contract Replica

$449.00

I own the cheaper version (still really nice), but imagine owning an exact replica made by Daniel Reeve.


Aragorn Figure – Asmus

$230.00

Another Aragorn I need in my life.


One Ring Replica – Yellow Gold

$1,069.00

I mean, if I had the money, why not?


What would you buy?

    oh wow, that *is* a list.

    regarding the folio prices: i’m guessing you could get them for a little less. when i convert the GBP prices on their website, i get:
    hobbit: 29.99 GBP = 42.47 USD
    silmarillion: 38.95 GBP = 55.16 USD
    lotr: 99.95 GBP = 141.53 USD
    so ‘only’ in the realm of ~240 USD for the books, without shipping.

    according to http://www.foliosociety.com/pages/delivery-and-returns, your first order has shipping capped at 8 GBP, i.e ~11 USD.

    so what i’d do is look at the site monthly, and wait until there’s a discount code for the tolkien stuff. (‘this month’s offer’ in their shop.) i can’t remember how much discount i got when i ordered mine, but it wasn’t a trivial amount. definitely more than the 10% on select titles they are having right now.

    also, re pricy history of middle-earth: are we talking hardcover editions or something, because german amazon seems to have all the harpercollins paperbacks at under 15 EUR each.
