I'm not even sure if any of this is legit anyway [In reply to] Can't Post

The title of the article is about figurines, yet give no information on the actual figurines themselves. Could all be a load of baloney...

Baloney [In reply to] Can't Post

The desolation of baloney is made with goblin meat and when hairy dwarf woman eats is not pretty.

Hard to judge with translations [In reply to] Can't Post

But most of the character descriptions seem to be exactly what we've already read, plus a few additional details, with the exception of the new characters.

No, but... [In reply to] Can't Post

They certainly have some kind of inside information!
Much of this info haven't been released or seen in vlogs, and I don't think they are guessing with 50% of this, so I am certain that over 90% of this is true information, official or not ^^

I'm with Carne on this . . . [In reply to] Can't Post

. . . leaning towards ligit.

Too many specifics abou the dwarves . . . still . . . who knows.
I'll certainly be copying all of those for future reference.

BTW, nice psychic hunch . . . only one day off!

Always good to be skeptical [In reply to] Can't Post

Until you have enough evidence.

My favorite part of the translation is this:
"He is initially skeptical, but because he is adventurous, he joins a group of Thorin Oakenshield and becomes the "master thief", they need to bring back a ferocious dragon to outwit and the stolen treasure of the dwarves."

Change of plan, they are not going to kill or chase Smaug away, but going to bring the dragon back with them! How's that for a spoiler! They must have found out the going rate of live dragons on the black market was greater than all the gold in the mountain. Sly

Woah, quite a lot of information there [In reply to] Can't Post

Hmm... This suggests Bifur won't be speaking dwarvish (Khuzdal?) as suggested by Kircher in one of the vlogs and pre comic con info. Bifur communicating through hand gestures does confirm what some expected he was doing in the teaser trailer. I quite like the idea of Oin being a medic. To me it makes sense that at least one the group can perform first aid on what is likely to be a dangerous journey Wink.

Not to sure what to think of Azog still being alive since his death contained a lot of impact and sets up the character of Dain very well. Hopefully have more information about Azog soon.

Anyone can make up "specifics" [In reply to] Can't Post

The bit about Dori being the strongest dwarf seems strange. Since further up it's says how ruthless Dwalin is. Laugh

I'd be more inclined [In reply to] Can't Post

to believe previous official interviews, hints, and vlogs that have all pointed to Bifur speaking at least some Khuzdul, than a mis-translated unconfirmed internet source. Wink

Do we have any TORn users who speak German and can translate for us?

I had a theory that Bifur was a. Mute.. [In reply to] Can't Post

From the Trailer introductions..he crosses his arms
which I felt was Sign language for "Friend"..
I don't know where in any Brain the ablity to speak is..
but I thinking that
Orc axe robbed him of speach.

Also having a near Deaf Dwarve is wonderful

So inclusive of the Handicapped...

None of them hint towards Bifur speaking Khuzdul in the films [In reply to] Can't Post

He just speaks a line during an interview...

My guess is that Bifur doesn't speak the entire time, and then, at some point perhaps during the BoFA, says:

"Mighty dwarf!"

And that's it.

Ok, not so much "official", but still points that way [In reply to] Can't Post

Bifur may only speak in Khuzdul, possibly due to that silly axe protruding from his skull.

Well, Dori DOES carry Bilbo around for a lot of the trek [In reply to] Can't Post

And Dwalin would probably using Bilbo as a blunt instrument to bludgeon Orcs or something... WinkTongue

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!
