Tolkien Society member, Jenny Guthrie got to meet Elijah Wood and Richard Taylor at Comic Con 2001 in San Diego.
Jenny was at Comic Con promoting the Tolkien Society, with the help of Sideshow Toys/WETA, manufacturer of licensed collectable toys and products, including The Lord of the Rings film. The convention is massive - 50,000 people went!!!
Before the Comic Convention even began Sideshow/WETA were very enthusiastic about helping the Tolkien Society, and at the convention, they gave us booth space for flyers, buttons (or badges, as they are in British English!), and space for Jenny. Thanks Guys!
Sideshow Toys/WETA even invited Jenny to their workshops in Los Angeles and New Zealand.
I cannot emphasise enough how helpful and friendly everyone
on their staff was and is.
Sideshow Toys/WETA are offering Tolkiens Society members a 10% discount - so why not check out their website: http://wwww.sideshowtoy.com?
