Denver Comic Con recently announced that the Weta Workshop will attend the 2014 convention. Weta Workshop is the five time Academy Award winning conceptual design and physical effects manufacturing facility in Wellington, New Zealand that helped create Middle-earth for “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” trilogies and that has many other films to their name, such as “Avatar,” “The Adventures of Tintin,” “The Chronicles of Narnia,” “District 9,” and “Elysium.”

“We are absolutely thrilled to have been invited by the organizers and we’ve been eagerly packing cool stuff from Middle-earth and beyond onto trucks and into planes to have a great range available to purchase at the Weta booth,” said Stacy Longstreet, expedition leader for Weta’s contingent at the show. “It’s our first time in Denver as well as our first U.S. show this year and we’re really looking forward to meeting fans and making friends in Colorado.”

At the Weta Workshop booth attendees will meet artists and craftsmen from the award winning workshop. Weta’s range of limited-edition collectibles, prop replicas, art prints, jewelry, clothing and merchandise from the movies will be on display and available to purchase at the booth.
