The Balrog from The Lord of the Rings gets a life-sized bust

Inspired by Durin’s Bane from Peter Jackson’s cinematic adaptation from Lord Of The Rings: Fellowship Of The Ring (2001). This limited edition collectible bust by Queen Studios captures the Balrog as we saw him on the big screen. The Queen Studios team have studied the Balrog closely, expertly capturing the hulking monster’s fiery eyes, demonic horns and gigantic fangs. Available in two editions, the Polda Edition is a life-size collectible daringly created for discerning collectors.

The Balrog, also known as the Valaraukar, is an evil fiery beast with a menacing humanoid-shaped body. They weren’t always evil. Originally, they were Maiar, spirits whose purpose were to shape the world of Eä. But they became seduced by Melkor, the first Dark Lord of Eä and the source of their evil. When the Fellowship of the Ring took to pass below the Misty Mountains, they caught the attention of the fallen Wizard Saruman. Silence alone could not grant this band of heroes safe passage, for Saruman has alerted a dreadful Balrog. Gandalf knew their escape would come at a mighty price, and he would not pass through the Dwarf realm’s doors.

As this character is beast, Queen Studios’ artists have decided to present it as such. Its evil essence drips onto the base beneath it, while its eyes, mouth and surrounding flames include internal lighting to create a sinister burning glow. The base that supports the Balrog is inspired by the architecture of the dwarf realm beneath the Misty Mountains. The base and flames are both optional extras, as the Balrog head can be ordered as a standalone piece that can be mounted to your wall.

Available in two editions, the Cinta Edition is a scaled-down representation of Jackson’s beast that first appeared in the incredible literary works of J.R.R. Tolkien.

  1. That’s not a life-size! If this was the case, it couldn’t even fit in the living room!
