I really like it... [In reply to] Can't Post

...and as far has him being big, that's no problem. The LOTR films established that there was a tremendous variety of orcs and goblins with many different shapes and sizes. It only stands to reason that some are going to be huge, and it's not a far stretch to assume that a huge bully of a goblin could push and shove his way into command of a goblin nation.

What bothers me about that little glimpse of the trailer is that it makes it apparent the writers decided to go another way with the goblin king's death, as it is clear he dies after a battle and not from Gandalf suddenly appearing and striking him down. I can see why they decided to change this part in adapting it for film, but I also think it would have worked with a nice bit of suprise and irony for the 'movie firsters' if they built up the extreme badness of the goblin king as a character to suddenly have his head fly from his shoulders with Gandalf appearing behind him. They could have had their battle AFTER that.

Oh well. I still like the look of him, and the funny little bit of anti-climax when he falls and nearly crushes the party.

"Alas for Boromir! It was too sore a trial!"
