If you’re a fan of Lord of the RingsTintinKing KongMeet the FeeblesPeter Jackson, cool collectibles, and movie props, you’re going to dig this photo article.  When I visited the set of The Hobbit earlier this year in Auckland, New Zealand, I also got to visit the Weta Cave (Weta’s gift shop) and I snapped over 60 pictures.  As you can see in the pics, the store is a mixture of items for sale and props from the many films that Weta has been involved with.  Even though a lot of the merchandise is available online, it’s definitely a lot cooler to purchase a t-shirt/book/collectible from Weta while visiting New Zealand.

Hit the jump to check out the images.

For more info on the Weta Cave, here’s the website.  And here’s my set visit.
