The folk at special effects house Weta Workshop are doing their part to help. They have put three extra-special models from the Lord of the Rings series up for auction on eBay, with the proceeds destined to benefit the victims of the Christchurch disaster. The model of Bag End, signed by Sir Peter Jackson, tops the bidding with a current offer of well over $6,000.
Richard Taylor has signed a model of the pub in the first film of the trilogy, the Prancing Pony. And every man with the heart of a boy would love to bid for the raygun that was designed by Greg Broadmore.
