Back when The Lord of the Rings movies came out, there were promotional tie-ins at libraries in America, encouraging those inspired by the films to try the books! Now, the American Library Association has released a similar campaign for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The poster shows Bilbo reading his contract, with Galadriel, Gandalf, Thorin and Company in the background, and reads, ‘Take an unexpected journey – read’. Bookmarks and buttons are also available. Let’s hope these films create a whole new legion of Tolkien fans, who eagerly go back to the source and open up a book! Thanks to Ringer Michael S for letting us know about this!Posted in Collectibles, Hobbit Book, Hobbit Movie, Merchandise, Other Merchandise, Posters Prints, Shop, The Hobbit

It seems like new movie posters for The Hobbit: an Unexpected Journey, are coming out of the woodwork lately. This latest, Argentinian poster was revealed recently by Spanish movie poster site Cine1. In it, we see the great eagles soaring above a forest, with Gandalf and Thorin (with weapons drawn) in the foreground. As with many of the ‘new’ posters coming out lately, this one is a scene taken from the Hobbit scroll put out by Warner Bros. in early September. Still, it’s a nice close-up and a nice shot for a poster. Read more…Posted in Hobbit Movie, Posters Prints, The Hobbit
A poster related to The Hobbit: and Unexpected Journey has appeared on the Film Cells Ltd.com site. The poster is a collage of various pictures of the four members of the White Council in the movie: Galadriel, Elrond, Gandalf and Saruman (before he turned rogue). The White Council was formed at the suggestion of Galadriel to discuss what to do about the growing darkness in the Third Age, a darkness that would later be revealed to be none other than the dark lord Sauron himself. This gorgeous poster is for sale at the Film Cells Ltd.com site. Check it out.Posted in Hobbit Movie, Merchandise, Posters Prints, The Hobbit
Yesterday another Hobbit poster hit the internet, and it contains some great character images! These dwarves we’ve seen before – though it’s nice to see them in active pose. But who is that top left? It’s none other than goblin Bolg, as confirmed by the Bridge Direct action figure.
Not listed in Bridge Direct’s recent release list, but included in Vivid’s list for release in Europe, is also a ‘Yazneg’ goblin figure, but for now there’s no Azog. Of course we’ve also seen Grinnah and Fimbul the Hunter with his warg; but those fellas seem to be Misty Mountain goblins, connected to the Goblin King, whereas Bolg and Yazneg are connected to the earlier Goblin Wars (with Bolg being the son of Azog, and Yazneg a character created for the movies). So what does this tell us about what we can expect to see in the first film of these goblins and their battles with the dwarves? Do these toy releases mean we won’t have to wait until the second (or even third) movie to learn more about the Goblin Wars? Why don’t you join us in our message board forums to speculate?
Thanks to our friends at Tolkiendrim.com for the heads up on these European toy releases – see the full list over at their website.Posted in Collectibles, Hobbit Movie, Merchandise, Posters Prints, The Bridge Direct, The Hobbit, Toys

“Hello fellow Middle Earth fans, Jerry VanderStelt here. As some of you know, I am a Licensed artist with New Line Cinema and Warner Brothers studios in the creation of the Lord of the Rings art reproductions. Now, I have expanded my fine art program to include The Hobbit!
My first Hobbit art piece is a montage that encapsulates key moments, characters and locations seen in the first film. After that, I plan to continue exploring new pieces that focus on either beautiful landscape scenery, character-centric pieces, or specific characters or groups of characters in various environments.
I hope to have my first Hobbit piece out of the gate by the Dec.14 in time for the film’s release. Soon, I’ll be announcing the pricing and sizing as well as the different edition options I plan to offer here in this thread. Feel free to ask any questions that may come up as we go along!”
Mondo, the Alamo Drafthouse’s poster house, debuted a set of three new posters at Comic-Con, designed by artist JC Richard. Each was themed around the Lord of the Rings film trilogy.
In an interview, Mondo’s creative director Justin Ishmael said he understood the trilogy meant a great deal to fans and was delighted to provide a follow-up to an earlier poster centered around a Lego version of the Lord of the Rings.
These posters are directly based on the Peter Jackson’s filmed version of J.R.R. Tolkien’s classics. Ishmael notes an earlier version of the Balrog was knocked back by parent film company Warner Bros, because the artist’s interpretation was closer to Tolkien’s description than what was pictured in Jackson’s film.Posted in Collectibles, ComicCon, Conventions, Events, Merchandise, Posters Prints
