After their sojourn in Lothlorien, the Fellowship continued its journey towards Mordor. They travelled by way of the Great river in three light boats which had been provided by Galadriel’s folk. Provisioned with Elven waybread and equipped with Elven rope, the party set out upon the swift waters of the Anduin. Frodo, Sam and Aragorn took one vessel (MX668), while Merry and Pippin travelled with Boromir. Gimli and Legolas took the third (MZ645).
This vignette depict the second Lorien boat, where the other Hobbits idly watch the passing landscape and Boromir broods, his eyes fixed on Frodo, and dreaming of what victories he might achieve if he possessed the terrible ring.
- Boromir (3 parts on sprue).
- Merry and Pippin.
- Boat base.
- 2 seats.
- oar for Boromir.
- 2 rope accessories.
- 2 different supply accessories.
Boat measures 87mm in length. There are seven separate parts in the blister, and three of these are sprues with smaller parts attached. No glue included.
The final boat is here and is again to the same standard as the previous two releases. I like the way that Boromir is slightly leaning to one side as if he has stopped paddling to see what is up ahead. Due to some small parts, care will need to be taken when assembling Boromir to align his left arm so don’t rush and try a couple of dry-runs. I’m very excited about these Lorien boats and the potential offered for dioramas.
Another great sculpt with but one criticism. In other sculpts Boromir is wearing a cloac with fur, like that which is pictured but when I got the sculputre the fur was missing. It may sound petty but consistency is important especially when the sculpts cover a certain time frame. That being said a little green stuff solved the problem. I love the sculpt otherwise and am very happy with the three boats and passengers.
