When The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies gets a big preview on Saturday, expect LEGO to be close behind (if not ahead of Warner Bros.) when it pulls the curtain back to reveal LEGO: The Hobbit – The Lonely Mountain playset.
While I enjoy getting Lego as much as the next person, I don’t have the time to build really big models. Sure, I can handle an occasional 5,000 piece set, but that means I have to have a lot of free time. Lord knows what I would do with 200,000 Lego bricks. Fortunately, Alice Finch does as she recreated J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth setting of Rivendell. Two-hundred pieces. Let that sink in for a moment, then take a long look at incredible detail Alice put into this construction. Simply. Amazing.
The Want List returns! It’s been far too long since new episodes of The Want List have graced the pages of Major Spoilers, and it is time to fix that… after the jump!
Though many of us loath 3D movies, there are few that we attend, thus forcing us to return those plastic glasses. Many theaters run an spot before the movie reminding movie goers to return their glasses to be recycled. With many reports circulating that these glasses are covered with germs (and fecal matter), we wonder what you do with your 3D specs. VOTE!
So it is in theaters, and we know that some of you have already seen The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. A curious Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, journeys to the Lonely Mountain with a vigorous group of Dwarves to reclaim a treasure stolen from them by the dragon Smaug. We want to know what you think! Use the comment section below to share your thoughts, ideas, praise, and criticism, of the film that is being expanded to two more feature films. GO!
If you are looking for a true Hobbit experience, you can always head to Hobbiton, the still standing sets and location of the Shire used in making The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films, has just opened the Green Dragon Pub, a place where you can get a drink while pretending you have giant furry feet.
What are you going to wear to the theater this week when you and your friends go to see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey? If you are smart, you’ll snag this snazzy Middle Earth dress spotted at Dragon*Con 2012.
