Beorn size

Well, if Bilbo who was 3'6" could trot between his legs and not duck for a tunic that came to his knees, that would make him at least a 10 footer. 3 meters(9 feet 9 inches) was used in an article from last year about Persbrandt and based on the scaling of the photos of Beorn's house, his statuette, and his chair from the Production VBlog that all seems to jibe so we can assume PJ is taking his description pretty literally from the book. Most of the artistic interpretations over the years in the various illustrated versions of the Hobbit tend to depict him enormously.

As far as the BoFA, his arrival broke the back of the horde of all the Goblins of the Misty Mountains that were prevailing up to that point. I just don't see a "grizzly bear" doing that. I think the following illustrations should and I hope were a guide post.
