Crazy but cool... [In reply to] Can't Post

We pretty much know now to expect anything... the designs have pretty much been from wacky to safe (Gloin) to dam near silly (kili)...

I'm really curious to see what they've done with the rest of them, although from the Bilbo pictures we have a fair idead, there's a bald one to come and an aged white haired one... and then there's Thorin !

The man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed

woah! their a bit weird, I like Bifur even though I got an aye-ho aye-ho and all most cracked up when I saw Bombur ( anyone else get the sudden feeling that Obelix had invaded the set?) but i'm currently not sure about Bofur, he just looks abit out ofplace for some reason, ahh well, i think theyre gooing to look briliant in the movies,,,,

This image gets the bad taste of Kili's appearance out of my mouth (well, for the most part Wink). These three are perfect. Bombur is epic, and Bifur looks like a psychopath.

Bring on Balin and Dwalin tomorrow please.

Like it not, P.J and his team are incredible [In reply to] Can't Post

I never expected to get so much detail and diversity from the dwarves everytime I thought of Hobbit being converted to a movie. This is phenomenal, and no matter what we get from the missing dwarves, as a group, these dwarves are going to look magnificent!

It just makes the fact that they are making two Hobbit movies even more relevant now.

Guillermo del Toro Influence... [In reply to] Can't Post

I suspect that the final dwarf designs have been signigicantly influenced by Guillermo del Toro's original sketches. It's hard for me to believe that the new designs would have been started completely from scratch after GDT left the project. del Toro's vision and design aesthetics seeps into the new images. I think it will be the same case for Smaug and other characters. These design influences will be part of GDT's lasting contribution to the project....

And I thought Gloin looked like Obelix! [In reply to] Can't Post

Bombur looks fine—I particularly like his beard necklace, heh. I think he'll really shine once we see him in action. Bofur looks fine as well, but Bifur is definitely the best of this lot. He still exudes "DWARF!" without relying on visual tropes used for the other dwarves. Without the high-res, I can't be sure, but the prosthetics are either absent or minimal and it looks great. I love his hammer, his doofy hat (which his mom or his sweetheart totally made him), and I love his attitude.

I also absolutely love that they are working class dwarves, which might make for some fun tension (or at least jibes) at the more noble dwarves in the company.

I love these guys! [In reply to] Can't Post

My favorite so far. Hilarious! Bifur has the best look of the bunch, IMO. Not too cartoonish, but not too cliched dwarf either. Something about him seems rooted in history... Something of a Briton tribal elder-look to him.

And Bombur does have a beard...Or rather, a beard necklace! Or is that a moustache necklace?

I don't care. They're great.

Isn't there a way... [In reply to] Can't Post

to make these photo's more colorful, i.e. a photo-editing program to let the colors lit up, and show us possibly even more detail? I hope someone could do this. It would be really cool to see these photo's in bright colours.

I knew something seemed a bit off about Bombur [In reply to] Can't Post

why it wasn't immediately obvious to me that that something was the lack of beard, but not of hair, I don't know

Def. Agree [In reply to] Can't Post

I see the GDT influence in all of the dwarves. They all have a certain GDT edge/quirkiness to them. (The same way that I would notice had say, Tim Burton designed the dwarves). ( guess we'll know to what extent in the "behind the scenes" clips in the DVD's.

better photo [In reply to] Can't Post

Hope we get a good hi-res up at some point on both this and the Fili and Kili image.


I'm already trying to imagine Bombur trying to climb a tree, and it makes me laugh, so I have to stop thinking about it.

I love Bofur's hat, James is already having a ball in this role, good for him.


Not entirely sure what to make of the skunk head look on Bifur, but that spear thingy looks wicked.

It certainly looks like an eating implement [In reply to] Can't Post

that can double as a weapon for whacking people over the head (or in the knees, given that he's a Dwarf). This, IMO, is perfect for Bombur. :D

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.
