Behold Gloin & Oin!

July 8, 2011 at 11:32 am by xoanon  - 

John Callen as Oin and Peter Hambleton as Gloin in Warner Bros. Pictures’ The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – 2012

From Yahoo! Movies: Distant cousins of Thorin Oakenshield, these two doughty Northern Dwarves join the Company out of a sense of loyalty to their kin, and also because they have a substantial sum of money invested in the venture. Along with Bombur, Gloin is the only other married Dwarf in the Company (there being a shortage of female dwarves in general). His wife is an acclaimed beauty with a particularly fine beard. Gloin is the proud father of a young son, Gimli, who will go on to become part of the famous Fellowship of the Ring.

Analysis of the image is pending, meanwhile take a look at the growing collection! First Dori, Nori and Ori, and now Gloin & Oin.

    The only problems I have with these pictures strictly lies in the fact that they are promotional stills. That means they are a little glossier and probably photo shopped a little. Besides that… I think they look great. Each dwarve seems to have their own visual look, and the costumes look great. Can’t wait for pictures of them in the movie.

    Yay! That’s more like it. Now these are dwarves! 😀

    It’s amazing to me that the costumes, beards, makeup and the proportions of their accoutrements can make these nice tall young men who are cast as the dwarves look short and stocky. I never fail to be thrilled by the pure craftsmanship that goes into the making of these films. 

  4. Its looks totaly difficult to the LOTR style, but it is very good 🙂

    I know costume artists can be genius but are these cgi pictures? They look too good, as in not real life.  Why would they bother making cgi versions if they have the actors.

  7. Mike Keesey says:

    They’re showing up a couple at a time, just like on Beorn’s doorstep.

    Ok, female dwarves have beards? How far out is that? Did Tolkien say they did?
    But I like the pictures.

  9. Sweet!  These photos look amazing. I’m assuming they were shot on the Epic camera with HDRx enabled.  It’s got that tone mapping look to it.

    Anyway to get it in full screen like the Dori, Nori and Ori pic?  I’m extremely impressed with the detail.  Really looking forward to Dec 2012.

    Wow..lovin’ the dwarf look! When do we see pictures of Kili and Fili..just asking…

  12. Bram says:

    Wonderfull! Still hoping John Rhys-Davies will have a part to play in the Hobbit, preferably a dwarf, allergic reactions be damned:P

  13. “Nobody tosses a dwarf” indeed! Members of the Company look super intimidating.

  14. thinker says:

    yeah, this is how a dwarf should look like, Gloin and Oin are much better than human-looking dori, nori and ori. Much better, real dwarves with real beards and grim faces!!!

  15. Jason says:

    I’m loving this!

  16. John says:

    You guys do realize there’s high def picture available of Gloin and Oin over at Collider you can link to or post here on your site? Here’s the link, if you’d like it.

    so whats oin holding

  18. Tari Surion says:

    I believe it was Tolkien who made some reference to the female dwarves maybe having had beards.

  19. Della says:

    In the appendices (to I think ROTK?) Tolkien does mention that there are female dwarves, that to anyone other than a dwarf, they are physically indistinguishable from male dwarves, including the beards (which the dwarves are born with). However, we should never see one, as Tolkien also stated that female dwarves would never leave their homes except in absolute emergencies (when, he said, they would dress like male dwarves).

    Cannot wait for this movie!
