The last dwarf from The Hobbit has finally been revealed over at The One – Thorin Oakenshield.

As a young Dwarf prince, Thorin witnessed the destruction and terror wrought when a great fire-breathing Dragon attacked the Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. After slaughtering many of Thorin’s kin, the great serpent, Smaug, entered The Lonely Mountain and took possession of its vast store of gold and jewels. No-one came to the aid of the surviving Dwarves, and thus, a once proud and noble race was forced into exile. Through long years of hardship, Thorin grew to be a strong and fearless fighter and revered leader. In his heart a fierce desire grew; a desire to reclaim his homeland and destroy the beast that had brought such misery upon his people. So when fate offers him an unusual ally, he seizes the chance for revenge.

Looks, good, and it looks right.

    Must be the lighting on the forehead, but he looks like a Klingon.

      “Klingon” was also my first thought.

    Looks pretty cool. I would have pegged him as a bit older, but Peter Jackson has cast a lot of folks a bit younger than I would have. I am getting pretty excited about this movie. Time to read the Hobbit again. Bouncing Baby Boy is 2 now, and I haven’t read it to him in over a year!

    These dwarves are all mis-proportioned. Not stout enough. Gimli had the right look, but most of these just look like midgets.
