    Haha. Yeah, shenanigans is a very fun word, and it's pretty much the perfect term for describing most of what the dwarves get up to in the Hobbit films.




    Yeah, I completely recognise that they're not as good as the original LOTR trilogy, but I just love the universe Jackson and Weta created so much that any time I get to spend more time in it is going to be brilliant for me. And I agree, all of the dwarves have their own individual charms. The only part of the movies I truly don't enjoy are Alfred and the Master of Lake Town (which is a shame since I love Stephen Fry). Those two were just a little bit too cartoonish for my taste, but definitely not so much that they ruined the movies at all.

    Plus, as I said, I absolutely love the depiction of Smaug, so that new Smaug statue they've been previewing is likely to hurt the old wallet pretty significantly in the near future. ?


    Thank you Stig, Minuialwen and everyone else for the warm welcome!
    Alfred may be my least favorite character in Middle Earth Can we trade him for Jar Jar Binks?

      I don't know, Alfred's awful, but the one thing he's got going for him is that he's not a racist caricature.

        To be honest, I don't have such a problem with TheMasterOfLakeTown, or even Alfrid. The master was a greedy turncoat in the book as well, and even if Alfrid doesn't exist in the book, I can very well imagine that the master had a "helper" like him.
        Sure, they got too much screen time, and therefore some stupid dialogue/action, but that can be said about most things (except Bilbo himself) in the Hobbit movies.

          Late to the party as I initially passed on this statue due to space constraints and other items on PO/coming in, but I just recently had another opportunity to buy this awesome statue and I decided to go for it. I can only repeat what many of y’all here have already said before: this is truly a magnificent piece! The level of detail is imho very close to some of the MC statues. I was comparing details between this statue and my Escape of the Road and this statue is not far off overall and on par on certain elements.

          I’m very happy that I was able to add this piece to my collection!

              Thanks! It truly is a masterpiece. Not sure why I was on the fence for this one when it was released

                              Big congrats DarthKanade, well worth the wait IMHO.

                                        Did you buy it Ragadaz?! I did contemplate it but the AUD cost was too high for me.
