Weta Workshop’s Cave Trolls captivate Te Papa

Standing 3.6m tall, these impressive fibreglass troll sculptures were created by the original filmartists at Weta Workshop.

William (on the left), Tom (ready to stomp) and Bert, first met their adoring audience at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2012.

They then journeyed to Wellington to greet guests on the red carpet at the World Premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and are now on loan here at Te Papa until 22 January.

Visit Te Papa’s kids store for related merchandise and see more fantastical creatures, collectibles and prop replicas from Middle-earth at the Weta Cave in Miramar.
