Say hello to Thorin Puppetshield!

ThorinPuppet I love Kermit the Frog to bits, but I think he’s got some competition! Thorin Puppetshield is the work of illustrator, crafter and artist Rosemary Travale, and it’s quite, quite brilliant. Thanks to Ringer MJSpice for the heads-up!

Over the summer I decided I wanted to attempt to make a muppet-style puppet. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to try and when I was joking with a friend that Richard Armitage’s Thorin Oakenshield would make a good muppet, things just sort of came together. In between working on my stop motion thesis film at school this year, I’ve put in some time here and there to finish this!

desolation of smaug poster I can’t recall if this has been previously revealed, but this official synopsis — more complete than the short version currently on The Hobbit website — actually has some really interesting implications if you have a read through and examine who’s listed and (more importantly), who’s not.

As folks observed after the debut of the second Desolation of Smaug trailer, Guillermo del Toro is back in the credits for his work on the screenplay. There’s a co-producer nod for the late Eileen Moran as well. Highlight the space below to read the key omissions, and some fairly hefty spoiler analysis of what those omissions could mean for the movie.
