Mad means of transportation thread Can't Post

So, we have Thranduil and his elk, Radagast and his bunny-sled, and (coming in the future) Dain and his boar riders. What do you think of these wacky forms of transportation? Do you think they add to the lighter tone that PJ & Co are trying to achieve? Do they work well (or well enough) in the context?

Whatever next I wonder? Do you think that there is a plausible connection between Thranduil's elk and the hart that the Dwarves try to shoot whilst starving in the forest? (perhaps the wood-elves treat them as a protected species, and perhaps Thranduil won't be the only elf to ride one to war).

"These are Gundabad Wargs! They will outrun you!"

"THESE are Rhosgobel Rabbits! I'd like to see them try...."
