The perfect place to reveal Thorin!

Good on you, guys, good on you.

While I've always loved the swords in The Lord of the Rings, I've never been knocked off my feet by them—they're tools and they're meant not to distract you. But I think Orcrist is absolutely beautiful. The moon crossbar is just breathtaking. I think I'm in love, guys.

They've widened Armitage's face a little—after observing him in the The Vicar of Dibley finale, he's got a pointed face—and made his nose a little bulbous. Definitely a dwarvish face, if a ridiculously attractive one. Love the salt and pepper (heavy on the pepper) hair, although he does look a bit younger than I saw Thorin. But it's not completely out of left field (Kili) and I have every confidence that Armitage will make it work. Love the Padawan braid, but I don't care for the goatee. Apparently the nobility doesn't care for beards, young or old… I'd have preferred a full, if short, beard to the goatee, but it looks good on Armitage and is at least consistent for the family group.

I do wish we got a full body shot, considering the proportion issues with Kili—Armitage is a tall and fairly lithe gentleman, so I do hope they've bulked him up properly.
