The Hobbit's Tauriel Gets Statue, Stamp and Coin Collectibles

A few new collectibles are currently available for pre-order that focuses on the new character Tauriel. The character, as played by Evangeline Lilly, will first appear in next week's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Weta has created a 1/6 scale statue of the character that will ship by the end of the month for the cost of $275 and limited to a run of 1000. While expensive, it is a pretty piece. The One Ring has a large gallery of the piece here while you can go ahead and pre-order it here.

Besides the statue, New Zealand has also chosen to honor the new character. Much like last year, the NZ Post Office is releasing official coins and stamps depicting Tauriel, Legolas and Bard the Bowman. The items are technically legal tender in New Zealand but no outside the country. Not like it matters as they are meant to be collectibles anyway. You can find all that is available here.
