although, i do give him a lot of credit. he started out just designing slot machines (see attached photo). who knew that would inspire him to eventually create such fabulous lego toys?
i still think his later stuff, like "eat, pray, orc" is more interesting.
(and i will +never+ forgive him for gutting tauriel.... or completely eliminating virile, sexy, dwarves from the hobbit. he turned them into angry garden gnomes, in my opinion.)

aka. fili orc-enshield
the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."
this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel telpemairo
