Gandalf the Grey, later renamed Gandalf the White after his return from the battle at Moria, was a member of the Istari, a group of Wizards sent to Middle-earth to assist Men in resisting the influence of Sauron. He was a Maiar, a type of spirit, that took the form of an old man. Gandalf bore the magical ring Narya, after being gifted it by Círdan. The order was originally lead by Saruman the White, but when he became corrupted by Sauron and his own greed and fear, Gandalf replaced him as head of the order.
Gandalf the Grey travelled all around the west seeking to aid all the races and was known by many names, including Mithrandir and Stormcrow. His original name however is Olórin.
Only 100 of these figures are produced. This is the 190th release in the Gold Status Fellowship club. This was the winning idea from October 2021 and was submitted by Fellowship member "spirodotgeek". This is the second fully resin figure, undercoated with matt grey primer. It is created in one piece. The base has the manufacturer name, MITHRIL, date and number on the sides of the base instead of the bottom, due to technical requirements in its manufacturing. It measures 23mm in length, and is about 31mm in height from the base to the top of Gandalf's hat.
This product is not suitable for children under the age of 14.

This miniature is amazing.
The figure is, as usual, very nicely sculpted and detail appears to be nice and crisp (I have a bias towards resin over white metal in any case) and NO mould lines to be pared away which is always a bonus. The resin also has a nice feel to it and being grey it may do away with the need for factory primer to be applied. It will be interesting to see how support rods are dealt with for delicate parts on future releases, sometimes a trade-off against breakages in the post. One thing that I hope will be taken into consideration for future releases (where applicable) is paintbrush accessibility to some areas I will also add that the quality of figure received is better than shown in the photo - Gandalf seated does look a bit grainy in the official photo, but my copy looks fine – hopefully this will not give some the wrong impression of quality; they are good. I guess some prints may vary if the resin changes. Anyhow, it’s a thumbs-up from me
