How did you picture Azog and Bolg, before The Hobbit films? Can't Post

hi all!,
I was just wondering what your envisions were of azog and bolg before seeing the hobbit film. How did you imagine them to look?
I always remember, picturing azog as a Black/green Orc, much like an Uruk hai mixed with the moria orcs from fotr, with long black hair.
Bolg on the other hand, I pictured to be almost like how azog is in the films! He was a large bold orc, with heavy armour, and more chilled. (not doing any fighting at all, save for his fateful confrontation with Beorn)
I know its a pointless thread but something interesting I guess......
Also another orc which I forgot, The great Goblin!
I had no visions similar to how he was portrayed in the films. in fact the most opposite. Reading the hobbit, I adopted the assumption that all goblins were actually orcs. (just another name). So I always imagined the goblins of goblin town to be very war like orc beings, and very faithful to the king. The great goblin to me was also an orc with long black hair, and armoured all up. I even imagined him to be somewhat ancient, as I assumed he was present at Gondolins fall. either way the movie was all wrong in his interpretation to me.

"fingolfin looked up in grief to see what evil morgoth had done to maedhros"

        The Great Goblin was more comedic to contrast the more serious enemies later sycorax82 Send a private message to sycorax82 Jun 23 2013, 10:50pm
