Staff of Radagast [In reply to] Can't Post

The larger image of Radagast (looks like Dol Guldur in the back) shows us that his staff looks very similar to the first staff of Gandalf at the beginning of "Fellowship" but it seems not to be the same.

"There is only one Lord of the Ring, only one who can bend it to his will. And he does not share power."

Coins and stamps?!? [In reply to] Can't Post

I want my Hobbit lemonade and candy NOW!!

But seriously they are cool and all but i fear Hobbit is going to be the next Harry Potter, Star wars, barbie doll whatever you think is the most overbranded thing in world.

Pessimists have no disappointments.

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

These are the best... [In reply to] Can't Post

...type of non-WETA collectibles IMO, certainly better than plastic toys. Coins and stamps issued by a government carry quality and credibility. Certainly a far cry from lemonade and candy.

(I'm fine with the figurines, btw...would have more of a problem with Hobbit name and pictures plastered on every cheap item you can think of)

Beautiful New Zealand landscape in "First Day Cover" [In reply to] Can't Post

With the dwarves on the mountains, and at the bottom of the page the same picture is featured. I can't wait to see all that beauty in the films again with Howard Shore's music to go with it!

Indeed! [In reply to] Can't Post

The potential 'Radagast's staff' sub-sub plot keeps surprising me. Tongue

Thorin pic [In reply to] Can't Post

That's the first pic I've seen of Thorin wearing a quiver w/arrows. also, he already has Orcrist... soooooooo...

I think we're seeing a pic on the eaves of Mirkwood!! Those look to be Beorn's ponies in the background, and since Beorn provided the dwarves with bows and arrows, I believe this to be the scene where (probably) Gandalf is parting ways with the company. Judging by the look on Thorin's face, I think that's EXACTLY what's going on here. Does this mean that we'll see Beorn in the first movie or was this photo provided before the split into 3 films?

This is the best shot of Thorin we've seen so far [In reply to] Can't Post

Sometimes he looks strange, like they didn't get his look just right. In this shot here he looks perfect.
