Shown Left Top: Mike Makras The Hobbit Figure - Bilbo Baggins
1978
7.5 inches
Design by: Mike Makras
Ceramic
This figurine is of the esteemed Bilbo Baggins of One Bagshot Row, Bag End, Hobbiton, The Shire. While it is dangerous to meddle in the affairs of wizards, wizards certainly do not reciprocate the sentiment. Thus it was that one fine day, Gandalf (a wizard), came to the Hobbit-Hole of Bilbo Baggins and proceeded to mark-up his lovely door. Bilbo could never have guessed that Gandalf, in his wisdom, had chosen the Hobbit to be the burglar on a grand adventure. While at first skeptical of his talents, the thirteen dwarves (Fili, Kili, Dori, Ori, Nori, Oin, Gloin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dwalin, Balin, and Thorin Oakenshield...whew) would eventually begin to rely on Bilbo as their quest to retake the Lonely Mountain went on. On more than a few occasions Bilbo would be left alone to rescue the dwarves from some predicament or another. Lets see....there was that thing with the Spiders in Mirkwood, and then the dungeons of the wood-elves. Okay, Okay, maybe the whole trolls thing was started by Bilbo, but don't forget he was just starting out, and things do not always go according to plan in the beginning, besides the dwarves insisted he go.

Shown Left Bottom: Mike Makras The Hobbit Figure - Smaug the Dragon
Design by: Mike Makras
Ceramic
Made it. Finally here at the Lonely Mountain. Now what is a Hobbit to do with a dragon, especially one as fierce as Smaug the Golden. I didn't sign-up for this! Turns out Smaug is one of the greatest dragons of the Third Age and I am no more than a toothpick to this beast, I don't even qualify as a snack. Well, I guess I could sneak. I do, after all, have this shiny new Ring to wear. Perhaps I could steal this golden cup lying here, he'll never miss it. Even if he does, what would Smaug care, it is so small a thing, such a little thing. I haven't bathed lately....do I smell? Never mind, it will be okay. Maybe the thirteen dwarves will reward me for this....as reward I think I'll ask them to never ask me to recite all their names in a row again.

Webmaster Note: These figures are clearly related to the 1978 Rankin Bass animated version of "The Hobbit"

 

Mike Makras Hobbit Smaug Figurine Smaug (2)
1978
9.5 inches
Ceramic
Ah, a second figurine of Smaug. You can never have too many dragons, like the dwarves always say. This one must have come out of the North to sack Erebor and Dale. It looks like this Smaug has been lying on this Lonely Mountain treasure for two centuries, maybe even longer. Hope he wakes up in a better mood than when he arrived, dragons can be so cranky. If Smaug gets angry, I can only hope that there is some kink in his armor that can be used to calm him down. Maybe get him to relax at Long lake for a while. I will ask that guy... you know, what's his name, that guy from Dale, oh yeah...Bard of Esgaroth.

Mike Makras Hobbit Wood Elf Princess Figurine Wood Elf Princess
1981
8 inches
Ceramic
This figurine is a bit of a flight of fancy on the behalf of the sculptor as there is no Wood-elf Princess in any of the books. King Thranduil had one offspring, Legolas. It has been a couple of years, maybe I will rewatch the cartoon again just to check...now where is my VCR?





Mike Makras Hobbit Wood Elf King Figurine Wood Elf King
1980
14 inches
Ceramic
This figurine entitled "Wood Elf King" is obviously King Thranduil of Mirkwood. He looks angry. Wouldn't you be? You been trying to party for days and these dwarves keep crashing the festivities. Now here they are, in your hall, begging for food, and they won't say what they are doing here. Throw them in the dungeons, and that really shiny dwarf named Thorin... put him in the deepest cell I have. Wasn't there another person in your company? Anyway, here on the eaves of Mirkwood we trade wine with the Men of Dale, so it makes sense to keep all these empty wine barrels right over the Forest River, and we like to let the guards drink their fill of it. Wasn't there another person in your company? No matter...you will never get away!

Mike Makras Hobbit Gollum Figurine Gollum
1978
7.5 inches
Ceramic
As to what Gollum is doing in this figurine I can only say "Shouldn't ask....not its business". Okay, Gollum is clearly deep in his Misty Mountain cave about to eat the juicy fish he caught. Having hidden under the very noses of the Great Goblins clan of Orcs for centuries, Gollum is still drawn to checking on his precious every few hours.

Mike Makras Hobbit Dwarf Figurine Dwarf
1980
7.5 inches
Ceramic
Webmaster Note: While the figure is unlabeled, it is my opinion that this is Balin. If you know different, let me know. Balin was perhaps the most thoughtful of the thirteen dwarves, and probably Bilbo Baggins best friend amongst them.

Shown Left Top: Mike Makras Figure - Bilbo Baggins (2)
1981
3.75 inches
Design by: Mike Makras
Ceramic
Bilbo Baggins was such a happy Hobbit. He lived contently in One Bagshot Row, Hobbiton. He enjoyed the company of his nephew Frodo, but a need to adventure is beginning to take hold of him again. Perhaps it is time for Bilbo to revisit the Lonely Mountain and the Dwarves of Erebor one last time. This figurine shows him reading the book that will define much of Bilbo's later years...the Red Book of Westmarch. Actually, for a small Shire Hobbit, it is a pretty scholarly attempt to tell the saga of both he and Frodo and the events of the late Third Age of Middle-Earth. Bilbo will leave Bag End with this book, giving all of his remaining possessions to Frodo.

Shown Left Bottom: Mike Makras Figure - Frodo Baggins
Design by: Mike Makras
Ceramic
Having inherited his uncle's estate, Frodo Baggins has no idea of what that really means. Completely unaware of the power of the ring, Frodo views it as a trinket of convenience, useful for avoiding unwanted relatives, and the like. It is Gandalf that will actually become suspicious of this trinket. This figurine shows what has to be Frodo in Mordor, though the emblem on the shield is meaningless and problematic, this is apparently a "nicer" version of Frodo in Orc Armor.

 

Mike Makras Lord of the Rings Frodo Baggins Figurine Frodo Baggins (2)
1978
7.5 inches
Ceramic
This second figurine version of Frodo is wearing the cloak provided to the Fellowship by Galadriel on their departure from Lothlorien. He is holding the One Ring, contemplating the burden of it, as well as the results if he should fail in his quest.



Mike Makras Lord of the Rings Sam Gamgee Figurine Sam Gamgee
1979
7 inches
Ceramic
This figurine shows a somewhat happier Sam Gamgee. It is likely that this figurine is a depiction of Sam as the Hobbits are just leaving the Shire. Still unaware of the true nature of the quest before them, they are more light-hearted than they will become after Rivendell. Walking stick in hand, Sam Gamgee is simply taking a walk through the Shire...for now.

Mike Makras Lord of the Rings Gandalf Figurine Gandalf the White
1981
7 inches
Ceramic
As a member of the Order of the Istari, Gandalf is charged with maintaining the peace in Middle-Earth. Though initially second in his order to Saruman the White, Gandalf the Grey is perhaps the wisest of his order, and will come to break Sarumans Staff on the steps of Orthanc, completing the last step in replacing Saruman. This figurine depicts the Gandalf as Saruman's replacement; Gandalf the White.
Many thanks to Bruce G. for the picture and info.

Mike Makras Lord of the Rings Shelob Figurine Shelob
1979
7.5 inches
Ceramic
Last surviving offspring of Ungoliant, Shelob managed to survive the breaking of the world at the end of the First Age of Middle-Earth. Eventually crawling to the high pass of Cirith Ungol, long before it was called Cirith Ungol...actually long before Sauron occupied Mordor, she guarded the border of Mordor from her high pass. Sauron tolerated her presence, though she served him not, because there was no better guard. Surviving on Orc, sometimes captured and sometimes sacrificed, Shelob would tolerate none to pass. It was only the combination of the Phial of Galadriel and the sword Sting that got the Hobbits past her hungry vigilance.

Mike Makras Lord of the Rings Treebeard Figurine Treebeard
1980
12 inches
Ceramic
Treebeard is an ancient Ent. Having walked Middle-Earth back in the days when the Old Forest (on the edge of the Shire) and Fangorn were still one woods. Actually his name "Treebeard" is a translation from the Elvish for Fangorn. Now walking the remnants of Fangorn on the edge of the Misty Mountains, Treebeard will become the most unlooked for ally in the overthrow of Saruman.

Mike Makras Lord of the Rings Boromir Figurine Boromir
1982
8 inches
Ceramic
This figurine shows Boromir grasping the Horn of Gondor. The Horn will be split in his fatal clash with the Uruk-Hai on Amon Hen. The cleaved horn will be placed on his chest when he is placed in his burial canoe and sent over the Rauros Falls.
