One of the most beautiful pieces at Comic-Con 2013 came to us from our friends at Weta Workshop. This statue is a real eye catcher with a great likeness, amazing detail, and a fantastic mix of grace/power. The character that Weta created that mixes all of these together is the King of the Mirkwood Elves Thranduil. This was also a special release granted by Warner Brothers so fans could see the character and start getting pumped for the awesomeness that is to come in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Comic-Con 2013 brought us, at this point, one of the most polarizing characters we’ve seen in The Hobbit Trilogy. Before she ever uttered a line, Evangeline Lilly’s Tauriel had fans picking sides. 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.

The good folks at Film Cells Ltd are celebrating the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug by giving YOU a chance to win one of their exclusive collectibles! These fabulous pieces are made using real film provided directly by Warner Bros. (If, like me, you were wondering how there is still film available, when the movies were shot digitally, here’s what Film Cells Ltd say about that: ‘We believe that the movies are available on 35mm film because there are still theaters throughout the world that are not capable of showing digital movies. We assume that one day this may stop being the case, but for now film is still available.’)
These authentic pieces of movie memorabilia are then mounted in beautiful displays, to make unique collectible items – a stunning addition to any Hobbit collection! To be in with a chance to win one of these items, simply complete the entry form below. The competition will run until Tuesday 10th December, and is open worldwide!
If you’re not lucky enough to win, you can still get your own film cell collectible with a discount of 10%, exclusively for TORn readers! Enter this code at checkout: 1RING2013 The code will get you 10% off any Hobbit or Lord of the Rings purchases from Film Cells Ltd, and is valid until December 24th. (Within the US there is also an offer for free shipping – use the code FREESHIP.)

Its always nice to hear from Weta Workshop, but its especially nice when they drop something beautiful in our mailbox. This time it is concept art work from “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Chronicles: Art & Design,” book. Written by Daniel Falconer, this is likely to be an amazing book. TORn got its first look at a similar book by Falconer for the previous movie and it turned out to be as stunning as we imagined it might be. Those who have had occasion to meet the author, who does extensive design work for Weta, know that he is gracious and smart and passionate about the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.

While the masses in the U.S. are out shopping, you can order one of these now and during the pre-order phase, your book gets signed by the concept artists and comes with a “Dragon’s Gold” for Weta discounts and prizes. As you can see above, the image we received is of Lake-Town, from the desks of Alan Lee (who writes the book’s introduction) and John Howe. And please click for the larger version, it is definitely worth
They also included some previously released Elf concept art which you can see below. You can order the book RIGHT HERE. Expect this art to pop up in other places soon and more will be released as Weta and HarperCollins see fit, but for Hobbit fans, this may be among the very best of seasonal gifts.

Here’s something we don’t find ourselves posting every day! As part of their ‘Hobbit menu’ fun this year, Denny’s are holding an eating contest at their restaurant in New Haven, Connecticut! And they’d like some fans to come along and show that they can eat like hobbits; or dwarves; or even a bear…
The contest is the suggestion of one ‘Jamie the Bear’, a competitive eater who made headlines nationally last year for attempting to eat Denny’s entire Hobbit menu. This year he wants to take on some fans, to see if they can beat him! If you’re in the area and you’d like to go along, here’s what you need to know:
