Well, what did y'all think? This can't come as a surprise... [In reply to] Can't Post

PJ hired two young, good looking actors for the roles and spoke about "heartthrob dwarves" in an interview... I was expecting two hunky dwarves, and would actually have been disappointed to see something else... I think PJ and his crew did a great job on these ones (and the other dwarves as well)! It's great to see some variety.

Now now Bill, you swore this was a battle between warriors, not a bunch of miss nancies, so warriors is what I brought

This might be an early costume test... So his beard could be thicker in the film.... [In reply to] Can't Post

Someone else suggested this is the "post-spider Kili" (in the book he gets so much spider-web in his beard he needs to shave it off). but he's supposed to have yellow hair :(

go back to the drawing board [In reply to] Can't Post

Aidan Turner looked more dwarven, and more believable, at the press conference, el natural, than totally-missed-the-mark Kili does.

Nah shoundn't worry about the other dwarves! [In reply to] Can't Post

Ok people, here's the deal, there have been some Hurrays and heart breaks over this pic of Fili and Kili and though I am not fully convinced either, that dosent mean that the Dwarves are going to go down hill from here onward.

Fili and kili's look was completely based on the fact that they are the youngest of the dwarves and probably somewhat naive and rebellious( a possible reason for the lack of huge beards). All the other dwarves are battle harderned veterans ( well, perhaps with the exception of Ori who seems to be weilding a book in the pic) and will probably look more like the dwarves we know and love.

Furthermore, I recently bought a copy of the Hobbit Special Empire magazine and on the main page picture ( also the frist picture we got on TORN) it shows Bilbo reading the contract with dwarves looking on in the background and from that picture I can not recognise any of the dwarves that have appeared on the site and from what i can tell, they got big beards , they are wearing fat suits, awsome armour and have the original prostetics.

So to sum up ,we don't need to worry, Fili and Kili are an unique case and stand very much alone and I'am pretty sure that the rest of the dwarves are going to be more like the ones we are familiar with and that we re all going to love them.

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us- Gandalf to Frodo

Or, alternately... [In reply to] Can't Post

They have gotten their eye-candy out of the way with Kili, and Thorin will look appropriately avuncular.

I'm still not convinced that they cast Armitage for his "heart-throb" qualities anyway.

I guess Kili is a fan of the Elves. [In reply to] Can't Post

It could be argued Fili and Kili are really young Dwarves - perhaps the Dwarven equivalent of teenagers. They probably tend to grow more
'Dwarvish' as they grow older, some more quickly than others.

We know more about Elves than we know of Dwarves but I'm pretty sure that the women and children of Tolkien's Dwarves did not have beards.

Post-spider Kili [In reply to] Can't Post

I really doubt that. These are meant to be introductory images; why would they show us the Dwarves in degenerated, dishevelled states which they reach at a late chronological point in the first film? Surely we're supposed to be able to look at these images and immediately recognise the chacters they depict when we watch the film?

These so called " heart throb" or "hunky" dwarves [In reply to] Can't Post

yes, but these so called " heart throb" or "hunky" dwarves could have at leastly look more like Dwarves, not these armoured up man-child things that look like they are workin for the middle earth fashion industry...

Yup. [In reply to] Can't Post

But then, as I've said before, I have no problem with the hairstyle.

That his hair would be "star-shaped" seems in keeping with primative races focused on the natural universe. It seems pretty regal to me, and not "human".

But "Elf-dwarf" Kili is another matter.
