Lord of the Rings is a film series based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic fantasy novels. The first in the series was released in 2001, and of course, it took the world by storm. Never before had an audience been transported so successfully into a vast world of fantasy. A world of elves and hobbits, where the culture of each character was so intricate and full-fledged, it was difficult to believe they weren’t real.
It’s this exacting attention to detail that made both the books and the movies so popular. It’s almost as if Tolkien was simply relating his former travels to us, describing, rather than creating these people. I fell deeply in love with all the characters, and was moved by both the good guys and the bad guys. Those Orcs were scary and really gross, it was hard to even look at them! Which is the mark of a well-made villain, if you ask me. While the good guys were pristine, innocent, full of kindness and generosity.
It’s easy to like a story that so clearly defines the boundaries between good and evil. It leaves you feeling like there’s justice in the world, like the good guys will always win, even if it seems impossible. It’s a comforting idea, albeit kind of unrealistic. I can see how audiences flock to it even today, decades after the book was first released.
The world Tolkien created seems so real, it’s hard to resist trying to recreate it at home. Well, now you don’t have to. Bring the fantasy to life with tons of LOTR gear! Heavenly Swords has your back, my friend!
Now this is impressive. This sword is an exact movie replica of the sword carried by the Witch-King, the leader of the nine Ringwraiths who were the chief servants of the Dark Lord, Sauron. It comes with its own certificate of authenticity and silk screened display plaque. It is a massive 54” long, and will leave anyone who visits your house feeling super jealous.
Now you can own the weapon wielded by some of Middle Earth’s creepiest creatures. They are described as man-shaped, roughly man-sized, ugly and filthy, and are only able to destroy, not to create. Orcs are cannibalistic creatures that seem to feel no pain in battle. Not to mention they are some of the most memorable evil characters in all of literature. This sword is made of stainless steel with a wooden handle and display stand. It measures roughly 36”.
Possibly the most impressive movie replica ever, this sword actually glows! It is fully licensed and authorized by New Line Cinema. It is cast from the same molds used for the original film’s prop. The handle’s sliding switch selects three different modes: “OFF,” “ON,” and “ORC.” The “ON” position will make Glowing Sting simulate the sounds of war when struck against other objects. “ORC” mode activates an audible hum and the signature blue glow that announces the proximity of orcs.
