Thorin in his regal clothing Can't Post

So this shot we've seen in the last two trailers.

I know people think it's his BoFA armour, taken from Smaug's horde, but obviously this can't happen in the second film. Furthermore, we've seen Thorin's clothing in Laketown and in the Erebor sequences, and it's much shabbier than this. Therefore, I'm wondering if it's part of a flashback to the glory days of Erebor, presumably in the prologue. I believe it was mentioned that relationships between father and son would be an important part of this film, so it makes sense we'd get to see Thrain and Thorin together, as their relationship hasn't been fleshed out at this point (I think some non-book readers were under the impression that Thror was infact Thorin's father). There's also the possibility that it's part of Girion's flashback, if they're going to show Dale's relations with Erebor.

    Thorin looks too old to be part of a prologue though... StoneHex104 Send a private message to StoneHex104 Nov 5 2013, 3:27pm
