"nine homages to our favorite film of 2012" [In reply to] Can't Post

The description (on the Emporium page) says there are "nine homages to our favorite film of 2012"

I can find 8. What do you guys see? At least, I'm assuming they are all in the contours of the mountain and one is not the mountain itself. Well... can anyone find 9 inside the mountain?

Here's a larger version:

I think I've got the nine (spoilers): [In reply to] Can't Post

Left to right: raven, Gandalf, his staff, Smaug's tail, Dwarf axe, keyhole, thrush, Thorin, Sting.

But the keyhole and thrush may be part of one homage...

thanks [In reply to] Can't Post

it was the item to the left of Gandalf, which you've identified as a raven, that I couldn't get. It still only marginally looks like a bird to me but it makes sense that's the one I was missing.

I think the keyhole and the thrush are meant to be two.

well, since the designer says there are only 9... [In reply to] Can't Post

perhaps you are reaching a bit with 4 of those. :-)

You say eagle and dernwyn says thrush for the uttermost leftest one. I suppose it could be either.

9 is fitting [In reply to] Can't Post

That is a number that has such significance to the Middle-earth.

I ordered my shirt today. Cool

On looking at it again [In reply to] Can't Post

I think it may be an eagle, not a raven...Evil

It is very clever, though. When I first looked at it I had no idea there were figures in the mountain - until the article mentioned them!

HEY! This also works for my favourite pop! [In reply to] Can't Post

Or "soda" for non-Michiganders ;) My d-o-c (drink of choice) after my home-made coffee it diet Sierra Mist. So Misty works for more than beer.

I absolutely LOVE the mountain! What a great idea and talent to incorporate so many hidden details. Brilliant!
