Awesome! I'll check it out tomorrow. :-) [In reply to] Can't Post

The website doesn't have anything, so I hope it isn't in a hand full of stores.

Of course there's another poster that fits right in with those three [In reply to] Can't Post

particularly the Aragorn one:



Presumably a not so subtle nudge to the uninitiated to illustrate the similarities between two exiled kings?

Nope, look at the titles [In reply to] Can't Post

All the LOTR official posters have "final" in the title. This one is an action poster.Smile

Agreed, I really don't like them. [In reply to] Can't Post

They looked great for the original Star Wars films, but most of the new kinds, including for LOTR, look so tired and derivative.

All I see is bedroom eyes, [In reply to] Can't Post

which doesn't sit well with my image of Thorin as the senior Dwarf who is determined to avenge his father and grandfather and reclaim his fallen kingdom.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

99% sure... [In reply to] Can't Post

...that poster with Bilbo will be a common one. The same image is on the soundtrack cover. Lotr films and soundtracks had almost the same covers. Only Fotr film/ost covers differed - OST used shot with the hobbits on Weathertop or collage with Frodo/Arwen/Saruman, Gandalf.

It would have to appear on the DVD [In reply to] Can't Post

It's a great poster, but doesn't draw the eye in for the general audience.

A change of plans meant I couldn't get to one today, unfortunately. [In reply to] Can't Post

I can check during the week, but I imagine someone will beat me to it by then.

Oh, okay... [In reply to] Can't Post

It wasn't actually my local store I saw it in but one 20 miles away! I might try my local branch if I'm in town later this week...

So I checked my local store... [In reply to] Can't Post

And they had nada...I even asked, and told them about the other branch, but the guy I spoke said they'd had nothing Hobbit-related in yet, and heard nothing about any exclusive (and added if he had he would have made sure he got one!! ).

Can't get anywhere near the other branch till this coming Saturday. If there's no further sightings before then I'll try and get one then if there are any left.
