From the Fangorn forests, lies the tree herder....Treebeard, an Ent.
Though Lord of the Rings movie craze has long gone by, even with the revival of "The Hobbits", the hype is no longer strong as before.
Nevertheless, the characters from Lord of the Rings still goes strong in the hearts of the fans. Treebeard is one of the easily identified characters and has given us the fantasy of a talking tree. How magnificent!
Today I have gotten a Treebeard designed by Applause and he is my second varied from the Toybiz made. He is indeed a very detailed and "flexible" tree which has no articulation for you to pose. For this sculpt, he is more softer and greener which has a very comforting tree effect.
His body are covered by greens and beard with leaves growing on it. The only weird part shall be his eyes which is not very well painted. It looks somewhat dumb if you look longer.
His branches of fingers looks like they are stretching to grab you.
Made of a rubbery plastic material that is slightly bendable, it makes him less fragile. With zero articulation, that means he is basically a statue.
The contentment I got from him is his details and 360 degrees of tree likeness.
With Merry and Pippin sitting on his top branches, it gives you a little peep into their adventure into the Fangorn forests and beyond. Something that this toy is able to transcend you into that period, I hoped.
Though he is not sculpted close to the movie version but I feel he has more likeness to the fantasy in the books. He might makes a good coffee top display while you read the Lord of the Rings?
Happy hunting and Don't be Hasty !
