TIME Exclusive: First Look At Balin And Dwalin

July 15, 2011 at 4:44 am by Earl  - 

Today’s much-anticipated “first look” at two more Dwarves from The Hobbit come to us courtesy of TIME. And it is indeed high time we met Ken Stott as Balin and Graham McTavish as Dwalin.

Here follows the accompanying description of these Dwarves:

Dwarf Lords in their own right, Balin and Dwalin are close relatives of Thorin. Beyond this, these brothers are two of his most loyal and trusted friends.

An old warrior, Balin has lived through hard times and fought many battles, yet he harbors doubts about the wisdom of the Quest to retake the Lonely Mountain.

Dwalin has no such forebodings – his belief in Thorin’s leadership is unshakeable. A powerful and bruising fighter, with a natural tendency to distrust anyone who is not a Dwarf, particularly anyone who might be an Elf, Dwalin is not someone to cross lightly.

What do you think of these Dwarves? Discuss on our message boards.

    These two are really nice looking, reall dwarves! I guess the white haired is Balin, he was said to be the oldest, right after Thorin. And we have the first bald dwarf!

    All of the dwarfs look amazing.  The costumes relay the battle-readiness of the race of dwarfs but I got a sinking suspicion that these characters are going to be a little more comical than fierce.  God I hope I’m wrong.

    anyone else notice how balin kinda looks like his bones did in the mines in fellowship or is that just me?

    Balin’s bones would have been in his tomb. Are you thinking of the dwarf skeleton propped against his tomb that was holding the book Gandalf read from?
