Fandalf the travelling Gandalf nears the end of his journey! Can't Post

Fandalf visits the heart of Tolkiendom in America - Houghton Mifflin's HQ, Boston

You may remember this story from summer of last year: 'Fandalf' the travelling Gandalf statue (well, two of him actually...) was making his way around America and around Europe, stopping with fans in many different places and posing with famous landmarks. With San Diego ComicCon 2012 being the final stop on Fandalf's journey, he has just over a month to go; so we thought readers might like an update on his travels!

The statue (made by Sideshow/Weta) which is travelling around America made his way over to the East coast. He was recently in Atlanta, followed by a few stops in New England (Rhode Island, Boston and Concord). Right now he's winging his way (courtesy of a friendly eagle!) over to Ohio. The European Fandalf has been to various places in Germany, Belgium, France and Italy. The wonderful pictures hosting fans have taken can be seen at flickr.com - search for images tagged 'Gandalf World Tour'. Many thanks to all who have hosted Fandalf - it's great to think of fans all over the world mooting with the Grey Wizard!

As we draw closer to the release of the first Hobbit movie, San Diego ComicCon promises to be full of excitement and Middle-earth goodness! Fandalf's return from his travels and merry meetings with fans will be a wonderful part of these 'Hobbit Eve' celebrations.
