While I'm at it, I've collected a few links posted during Toy Fair. They may be "old news" to some, but they are definitely worth checking out if you are itching for information on this toy line (or just need a refresher) as updates are currently few and far between.

Preternia.com Toy Fair February 2013: "We spoke with the owner of Bridge Direct and he seemed very keen on the idea of doing a Smaug for the 3 3/4" line. The line of thinking was that he would probably be a cheated scale but very large. They considered the Fell Beast from the Toy Biz line a good starting point when considering size. However, they have not gotten any source material yet from WETA so they would need that soon if there is any chance of a Smaug this year. They are also very interested in feedback so if this sounds like something you want, Bridge Direct wants to hear from you."
