Collectors got a good look at the character when the amazing artists at Weta Workshop unveiled the 1:6th statue of Tauriel. This was a special release granted by Warner Brothers so fans could see the character and start getting us pumped for the awesomeness that is to come in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.Posted in Collectibles, Collectibles, ComicCon, Conventions, Evangeline Lilly, Events, Hobbit Movie, Merchandise, Shop, The Hobbit, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, Weta Collectibles, WETA Workshop

Watertower Music is really teasing everyone with Howard Shore’s sou8ndtrack for The Desolation of Smaug.
