    I suspect that mace looks bigger in the picture than it actually is. It seems to be a trick of perspective because the mace is much closer to the camera than the orc wielding it. On the other hand, bone is a lightweight material, so a larger weapon wouldn’t be as unwieldy as you might expect.

      If you look closely it is not made of bone, but iron shaped like bone, at least the first three pieces are for sure, however, it is pointed right at the camera like you said, so it looks bigger :}

      You are aware that Peter Jackson loves big weapons right? Remember the With King’s morning star and how big it was? I’m pretty certain that even if you remove the perspective that mace is still massive!

        And how exactly can you lift that?

    not feeling it

    Pretty sure he is wearing slain dwarf face/beard/hair – that’s intense!

    • Tree man 83

      I also just noted that he has bear claws on his shoulders, this makes me wonder of there is a grudge between him and Beorn, like maybe he killed his friend bear or something?

  6. This is really horrible. It looks like a cross between a Thundercat and a Power Rangers villain. Major character design fail.

    I think it may be a beard from a dwarf, if you look at the forhead you can see a bit of scalp I think, also, I think this photo rules out a PG rating for good, this makes me very happy, I had been worried Jackson would “Go Full Lucas” on us and pull a Star Wars Eps. 1. I think based off this and the Great Gobblin we can finaly rule that out, PG13 for sure. :}

      I hope it’s PG-13, or else it might look like a “kids” movie, cuz you know The Hobbit was meant for 12 year old’s… just saying.

    looks like a villain from cheap science fiction movies/power rangers, shouldn’t the design be faithful to nordic/viking idea of monster?

  9. Trotter

    I love it! Perfect.

  10. Eadric

    That’s pretty poor.
