The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Presentation Pack

Over the last couple of years, New Zealand Post has issued various products featuring characters and scenes from The Hobbit films, ranging from official stamps and uncirculated coins, to commemorative pure silver and premium gold coins.

With San Diego ComicCon 2016 upon us, we’ve teamed up with our long-time Tolkien friends at NZ Post to bring you a fun new Hobbit-themed contest.

If you know your Wizards from your Orcs, this could be as easy as “String… or nothing!

One lucky winner will receive a prize pack containing New Zealand Post’s presentation stamp pack issued for each of The Hobbit films. Each pack includes miniature stamp sheets, gummed first day covers, and strips of self-adhesive stamps, besides informational content about the story and characters featured on the stamps.

All you have to do is answer the questions below and send in your submission before midnight of Sunday 31st July 2016 (PST). Entries containing correct answers to all three questions will go into the prize draw.

If you need help figuring out the answers, hop over to New Zealand Post’s “The Hobbit” Stamps & Coins.

The contest is now closed and the winner has been announced. Thanks to all who participated.
