*Please do not post any pictures in this thread* ....but hypothetically Can't Post

If, for whatever reason, we imagined that Bolg was portrayed as a huge "albino" Orc, this would obviously set him apart from other Orcs and be helpful for creating a memorable and distinguishable design. But could there be any more to it?

If we believe the action figure character summaries from a few weeks back, as we almost certainly should, then we could deduce that Azog is also an "albino". Could this be significant in any way, either thematically or in terms of plot e.g. could this unique coloration play some part in the Azog's dead, oh no he isn't, plot line as part of some switcheroo/ confusion?

Any thoughts on the significance of our first "white" orcs welcome.

LR
