New Hobbit App Transforms you into one of the Dwarves! Can't Post

Warner Bros just posted this neat little app, allowing you to upload a photo and transform yourself into one of the Company's Dwarves ...

I can't believe I did this. [In reply to] Can't Post

I could definitely be a stand in for Balin, Bofur, Thorine or Ori. Tongue You can change backgrounds, too. But I don't know how you'd send it here, Daniel; the terms of service say you can only have a copy for yourself and then they want email addresses for a friend, too. Not going to do that.

Wow! I've done my first app! Really. Now, a dwarf woman costume.......

HA! Timeline spoiler in the app [In reply to] Can't Post

As you wait for the app to load there are messages about how you have to wait for a journey of this magnitude to begin. One of them is something like "The dwarves have waited 60 years for a chance to reclaim their homeland. You can at least wait a few minutes for this app to load".

60 years since the dragon came to Erebor then? I'm not sure if it has been discussed on the forums or not, but the Visual Companion gives more detail about the relative ages of Balin, Dwalin, and Thorin which would have to change the time of the coming of the dragon. And it also mentions Thrain getting captured, in Moria. Which probably deserves its own thread. I really expected you guys to be all over it by now. I'll do a quick search to see if the topic has come up before, and post a new thread if not.

Edit: Ah search shows you've been discussing it in the past week. Might be worth a new thread anyway with this new bit of info.

How did you do that? [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm on my Mac, took the photos, and now I can't find them anywhere. Yes, I'm a bit clunky.

You look quite formidable as Dwalin!

I can send in an audition! [In reply to] Can't Post

And then Peter Jackson realizes that they have cast the wrong Dwalin, and have to reshoot the whole movie, and therefor delays the premiere! Smile

Thank me later guys Wink

Frito groaned. "I wish I had never been born," he said.
"Do not say that, dear Frito," cried Orlon. "It was a happy minute for us all when you were born."
