The Magic Purse is in! Can't Post

........well at least it is listed as William's war gear in the Games Workshop characters details. See thread below.

My god, I've never clicked on a thread quick enough. [In reply to] Can't Post

If only Games Workshop was fully based on the films.

Unsure

Good catch though!

But I got introduced to it on this forum. It became some kind of a running gag hehe.
I am 100% sure that if I had never heard of this purse before, and when I would see it for the first time, I would be like: ...Laaaame...
But now I know for certain that it will go something like this: Daniel! xD

I think that there's a fair chance of seeing it, a point of view encouraged by this news [In reply to] Can't Post

From what I've seen so far it seems that PJ is making a real effort (mostly) to be true to the book whilst adding in various other canonical and non-canonical bits to provide explanation and background context. With the expansion into three films it's even more likely that little details like the purse will be picked up and used (or at least I certainly hope so!)Wink

lol [In reply to] Can't Post

I remember it, too. I almost dropped the book and then reread to make sure it said what I thought it said.

Initially I thought it quite silly, but when the dwarves were captured by the elves, I was sure they were going to use it. Then I was sure they would use it against Smaug. Nope. Mentioned one time, then completely forgotten. Unsure

It doesn't add anything to the plot at all. [In reply to] Can't Post

So in terms of that, it *doesn't* have to be shown.

But it's one of a few details that I remember when I read The Hobbit for the very first time. We all remember how creepy Riddles in the Dark was on first read, or how magnificent Smaug sounded. But I also remembered this tiny, funny, detail; that is just one reason why the book is so great.

I appreciate that people find it silly, and think it will ruin the tension build up. But I don't. I say include it! And in a film with farting Dwarves, I don't think it's out of place.

And why simplify Tolkien's Middle-earth? It's full of strange creatures and artefacts. I think it's important to show these little things.

Smile

And the other reason is because I'm in the minority. I'm not letting it go.Tongue

So basically... [In reply to] Can't Post

you're saying the Talking Purse is to The Hobbit what the Fox was to LOTR? Fair enough, though I admit to having far more fondness for the fox. Cool

Exactly that! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hey, I'd even be happy if the purse was changed to the fox!

I love the small, tiny details. In The Hobbit, it's things like the purse, Bilbo's cold, the Eagle's crown and collars, the Stone Giants, and so on.

I think the fox would've been harder to pull off in the LOTR trilogy. How do you show it thinking?
