UCS-Sting

 

"I will give you a name...and I shall call you Sting."

——Bilbo Baggins, The Hobbit,

 

Sting was an ancient blade made by Elvish weapon-smiths in Gondolin. When Orcs or goblins were within an undetermined radius of it, the blade glowed blue, alerting the wielder and others who could see it to their presence. It had been lost during the Fall of Gondolin, the same battle in which Turgon fell and Glamdring was taken.

The blade was carried by Bilbo in The Hobbit after Bilbo found it in a Troll-hoard. Sting was found alongside Glamdring and Orcrist. Though just a dagger by the standard of elves, it made a perfect short sword for a Hobbit, although it was still rather small, as Bilbo initially chose to wear it "inside his breeches" and was still able to travel and even run without any apparent inconvenience.

My Lego version is made out 228 of bricks (stand included=99 bricks) and it's about 34.5 cm long.
It's not 1:1 but still fun to display or play with.

The whole set features:

  • Sting
  • A stand with printed plaque
  • a booklet with informations about the dagger
