Saruman The White - Figures of Middle Earth by MattDeMino Saruman The White - Figures of Middle Earth by MattDeMino
Saruman the White was an Istari and the chief of the wizards in his time and dwelt in the fortress of Orthanc in Isengard, below Methedras. The Istari were five wizards who were sent to Middle-earth to combat the growing power of Sauron, the Dark Lord. Saruman studied in depth the arts of Sauron. However, he soon became enamored of Sauron's devices, especially the One Ring, turned traitor to his mission, and sought power for himself by attempting to find the One Ring.

Stay tuned for more legendary figures from J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth!

I like that you took what was strong from the movies and leftbehind what was useless (Radagast, for example: your chcharacter design was far superior). Keep up the good work. I know we've never seen the Blue Wizards, but I'd love to see what you'd do with them.

Your works are amazing. You show not only an image of a character, but also a bit of his personality.
I just wonder why you didn't get thousands of comments!
