The Black Arrow was one of a small number forged by the Dwarves of Erebor, launched from a massive Dwarvish Windlance. When Smaug attacked the nearby city of Men, Girion, the Lord of Dale attempted to slay the dragon with these giant arrows, but only succeeded in loosening one of the beast's scales. Smaug destroyed Dale and claimed Erebor, but Girion's son escaped to Laketown with the last remaining Black Arrow. His Descendant Bard, a fisherman of Laketown and expert bowman, uses it to slay Smaug.

As others have mentioned, the fletchings could have been done better (material, attachment). I would have liked to see a sturdier material used for the shaft. But it arrived in perfect condition. I am just amazed at the size, and definitely is an eye catcher in one's display. Due to the significance of the Black Arrow in the story line, for me it was an eventual must buy. And for this clearance price, i'm surprised it hasn't sold out yet. Sure the Weta Black Arrow has better reviews on forums... but... this one is metal...
Oddly, I've noticed if it isn't a 5 star, super positive review, BUDK will not approve it. Way to go guys. Anyway, I recently received this as a gift.... and its waaaaay better than I expected! I'd seen some complaints about the fletchings, but honestly, they're not that bad. Once assembled its pretty solid, no wobble, the plaque may be the only downside. The threading on the spear shaft is pretty much what keeps it from sliding down and allowing the arrow head to rest on the floor. So, hopefully the glued the thread down. If you had reservations on this one, for $60 it is well worth it. Just make sure you have room, its freakin' huge!
I'm Happy for the most part. I'm slightly disappointed that the fletchings are thick plastic and that the threading isn't through all of the holes. When I got mine, 2 of the 3 fletchings were loose, the glue didn't hold so the only thing holding them on was the threading. The hand threading, by the way, is quite loose through the fletchings, but that's an easy fix. The arrow head is amazing and once all 3 pieces are screwed together, is has a very nice sturdy feel. Even with the issue I had with mine, it's still a pretty dang neat replica from the movie.
This piece is unlike anything else United has made to date. First off, it's 7 feet long and has a sharpened steel head as long as the blade of Sting. The back of the box says the design was originally cast in regular arrow size, but director Peter Jackson loved it so much he had it made harpoon-scale for the official Black Arrow. It comes in three pieces and must be assembled, but the copper screw ends are long enough to make it quite sturdy. The detailing is superb and I couldn't be happier to own this mighty Black Arrow.
I knew this was going to be a big arrow, but seeing it in person will blow your mind. The metal arrow head is the size of Sting and when fully assembled is a sight to behold. A must have for The Hobbit collector and a great item for anyone especially at the price. Well worth it.
