Merchandise Monday | Bag End Miniature

We’re geek girls, we love fandoms and being part of them, but, most of all, we love collecting themed merchandise! That’s why we decided to join the Fangirls on the Road with their Merchandise Monday.

Last week, Alice started with her interactive Marauder’s Map. Read her post here!


This Bag End miniature was a gift from Arwen and the Middle-earth News team on the occasion of our Long Expected Party last year. Bag End is the home of Bilbo Baggins in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and the home of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings.

The miniature is from The Middle-earth Collection, a family of model makers with an official license to make Middle-earth miniature collectibles. To learn more about their process and their selection of amazing miniatures, visit their shop or read this interview with artist Colin Patten on Middle-earth News.


These photos don’t even do it justice! There are so many tiny, beautiful details that it seems like there’s always something something new to discover or marvel at. If I could somehow shrink myself down to the appropriate size, I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that it is a perfectly decorated replica on the inside, too!

Why don’t you visit the Middle-earth Collection shop and tell us which of their miniatures is your favorite in the comments? And don’t forget to join us every Monday for a look at an item from our collections!
