Maybe prosthetics were too distorting [In reply to] Can't Post

I remember reading somewhere that with some characters, like Kili, the heavier prosthetics made AT look "too thuggish" -- so Kili wasn't looking like the character they'd imagined. He's young and this is his first quest. So, to keep Kili as a younger-looking, more innocent character, they didn't want to go too heavy.
