Geeky observations. Mostly regarding weapons. Can't Post

I made a weapons observations list back when AUJ was released, so I thought I would give it another go, although this is only a trailer.

To start of this section I would like to begin with this theory(though it is kinda obvious). The dwarves lose all their weapons either at the spider attack or when they are imprissoned in Thranduil's halls. They are given new weapons (and clothes) during their stay in Laketown. This can be seen throughout the trailer and I will try to clarify.

-Thorin is leaning on a sword, in the Dale clip, which is not Orcrist. It seems to be a man-made style of sword.

- Dwalin is carrying an axe or mace-like weapon. Also in the Dale clip.

-Dori is carrying a long sword on his back, far longer than any we have seen him with prior to this point. From the Dale clip.

- Ori defends against Beorn with his slingshot (lol, he should have learned by now Tongue ).

- Thorin is using an orc sword during the barrel escape. Most likely he snatched it from one of the attackers. This proves that Thranduil will take Orcrist, just like in the book.

- Kili is carrying a bow during the barrel escape.

-The dwarf that gets thrown through the air in his barrel snatches an orc axe midair. (It looks like either Dori or Bombur).

-Azog is not carrying any weapon(!).

-Two man-made swords are seen outside the hidden door when Balin says his lines. Also Bifur is carrying a sword of a kind.

- The standard elven soldiers seems to be using the same bow as Tauriel was using in the promo shot from last week.

-Legolas has his two white knifes from LotR, but his bow seems to be different. Kinda hard to tell.

Other geeky observations:

-As people have concluded, no, the statue the company climbs is not one of the two in front of the main gate. An interesting thing though, the statue seems to have the same kind of beard decoration that Thror had. On a side note, what a cool and unique staircase they use to climb the statue!

Feel free to contribute.
