Welcome to this auction of The Lord Of The Rings - The Two Towers (DVD, 2003, 4-Disc Set. This is PAL Region 2 (UK).
This is the Peter Jackson's The Two Towers, Lord of the Rings.
This Collector's Box of The Two Towers contains the four-disc extended version of the movie (also available separately) as well as three unique additional extras. Like The Fellowship of the Ring before it, the whole is packaged in a chunky cardboard outer box. Inside is a limited edition polystone statue of Gollum, complete with fish, perched on a moss-covered base (it weighs in at a solid three-and-a-half pounds and comes with a certificate of authenticity). Unlike the "Argonath" bookends, the statue is purely decorative: sculpted by the same artist who created Gollum for the screen it's painted in faithfully "lifelike" colours and has an authentically oily sheen to its flesh that makes it a somewhat less-than-attractive ornament for your mantelpiece. Fans, though, will appreciate the attention to detail and the statue's unique pedigree.
Also included is a box within a box containing yet another bonus DVD, this one devoted to the creation of the Sideshow Weta statue series. Some 24 minutes long, this documentary is introduced by Peter Jackson, who shows us his own extraordinary collection of statues; Jackson and Weta supremo Richard Taylor explain how they insisted that these models were created by the same artists who had worked on the movies, ensuring complete authenticity (the actors themselves are suitably appreciative). Taylor narrates in detail the whole production process. There's also a printed 44-page companion piece specifically devoted to Gollum, showing his evolution from early sketches to sculpted maquette to final on-screen character. --Mark Walker

Please don't forget to look at my other auction items. I have a few other Lord Of The Rings stuff that will be listed shortly, so keep looking!
Only serious bidders only!
I've had a few non-paying bidders recently. I don't know whether it's been the recent hot weather that's to blame, or what, but it's quite annoying having to chase people for their payments, only to hear absolutely nothing.
Make no mistake, it you are the winning bidder and do not pay by Paypal within 24 hours and have no intention of paying, you can and will be reported to eBay.
A bid on any eBay listing is, in eBay's words, A Legally Binding contract.
If you're unsure what that means, basically, anyone having sold something on eBay, are within their rights to chase you for the money through a County Court Judgement.
Something that will reflect on your borrowing ability.
Have a look at;
When buying an item, you agree to comply with the rules for buyers and that:
You are responsible for reading the full item listing before making a bid or commitment to buy.
You enter into a legally binding contract to purchase an item when you commit to buy an item, or if you have the winning bid (or your bid is otherwise accepted). "
Which you can find here;
This is another piece of advice from someone else on eBay;
Sorry if that is all over the top, but if you can't be bother to pay or at least communicate as to when you will, then don't bid. Simple!
Many thanks for looking.
