Hey all. Haven't been on for a while! I was just thinking and searched around. And I noticed how we haven't brought this up. Action figures? I'm a huge fan of LOTR action figures and I'd love for Hobbit figures! What action figures would you like to see from The Hobbit? Personally, i'd love for the dwarf company! And a Beorn figure would be cool. Man form and Bear?
I very much expect a Bilbo figure, and perhaps Bard. At first I though they might do Smaug, but I don't know. We'll have to wait and see on that.
Of course they'll probably sell sets of the 13 dwarves, and Beorn is a very good candidate. They might even do the Great Goblin. I'd like to see him
Seeing how they made almost everyone from LOTR an action figure, I can expect everyone in the Hobbit to be an action figure as well lol. I'm sure they'll make Smaug lol. Probably expensive though, but i can see them making him. Gandalf, Bilbo, the dwarves, Bard, Beorn, The Great Goblin, Bolg, Thranduil, and many many more! Lol.
here's my guess, quote me afte they're out
several Bilbo figures
I figure the featured dwarves will be Thorin, Balin, Gloin, Kili, Fili and Bombur because he's fat, they may get Battle of 5 Army versions, Thorin will probably get more versions than anyone else
Gandalf, probably two versions
Elrond, possibly use old mold
Beorn, human and bear figures, bear will be large
Bard, a couple versions
maybe a great eagle which would be large
troll which would be large
spider with captured dwarf
Master of Lake Town
Smaug which would not be to scale
Wood Elf archer
I hope they don't make them like the Starwars figures with mobile joints. The old school starwars figures were way better without moving elbows knees and neck, they were a lot more aesthetic.
Great list above though, and If I had to choose only one, it would be Beorn in human form.
