Smaug the Golden? Can't Post

Remember The Hobbit production vlog #2†that came out back in July 2011?

Well, we've watched it again (and recommend you do too), especially the bit between 2:05 and 2:25, where it isn't hard to spot Peter Jackson and his crew wearing a "200 Days To Go"†sweatshirt. What is hard to spot though is the logo on the front of that sweatshirt... until now.

Our Dwarves at TORn who spend their time mining the interwebs for gems of information came across an image of the hoodie that reveals the logo is none other than†Smaug the Golden.

Our staffers then got down to discussing it, and some said Yes, and some said No. Some said it couldn't be the real design for Smaug, and some said it only offered clues to what the real Smaug will look like. One staffer called Greendragon was (aptly!) drawn to this image more than the others and said it looked very much like "a John Howe Smaug". Finally, the end of it was to put the image out for your consideration and see what you thought of it.

So, what do you think? Real or not? Mildly interesting or surprisingly faithful?†Sound off on our message boards.
