Fantastic warg! Much better than african hyena crossbreeds.

Very wolfy indeed! Even more than Jack Nicholson Wink

Wait till Ailanuir Olorin sees this...

To me this looks like a still from a trailer [In reply to] Can't Post

Which is most likely coming this month based on Owain's thread and Manu Bennett's tweet Wink

I like it a lot [In reply to] Can't Post

I still think it looks kind of a little too CG but this is just a pic and there's no need to really get upset.

But the design looks great, IMO.

I have decided that the hyena wargs... [In reply to] Can't Post

were the result of Saruman's hybridization schemes, like the Uruk-hai (only uglier). THESE are the original non-altered wargs. Yes. I feel better now. Wink

It may be from a new trailer, you are right.

I like it, but it doesn't look just like a wolf [In reply to] Can't Post

Too many weird anatomical distortions, including vertical slit pupils in widely spaced eyes, and a nose that looks more appropriate on a camel than a canid. But it's better than the hyenas.

I think it looks close enough to a wolf, with the different features giving it a slightly more distorted, demonic appearance [In reply to] Can't Post

Such as the nose, which makes it look a little creepier, IMO. I think, if you showed a group of people this still, most of them would be able to correctly identify this creature as a wolf because a few missing physical characteristics don't change the wolf-like appearance that drastically.

Besides, they are referred to as "demon wolves", not just wolves. Perhaps being inhabited by an evil spirit does things to your anatomical structure. :}

Another image of a warg rider? [In reply to] Can't Post

This was posted on FB but the poster wasn't sure if it was legit or not. I do not know the original source.

Warg and rider


Looks like the same warg design, and same rocks as we've seen in some of the promo shots.

Looks legit definitelly. [In reply to] Can't Post

If a bit CGI. But in motion it'll probably look better.

I like it. Interesting design. Much more wolf-like, but still something we haven't seen in film before.

Remember when we got stills right before the 2nd trailer, and they were conveniently trailer sized?
