Preorders Begin For 3 New Eaglemoss Publications Hobbit Figures
Kili, Fili and Gloin Joining The Hobbit Motion Picture Figure Collection
Pre-ordering has begun for the latest additions to Eaglemoss Publications line of Hobbit figures. These figures, part of their Hobbit Motion Picture Figure Collection line, are of members of the dwarven party from the movie, Kili, Fili, and Gloin. If you are having trouble remembering all the dwarves from the movie, Kili is the one that hooked up with Tauriel (something not in the book), Fili is his blonde brother, and Gloin is Gimli’s father.
As with all the other figurines from the line, these will also be made in 1/25 scale, sculpted in specially formulated metallic resin, and using official reference material provided by the studio. Each figurine was hand-painted and approved by Warner Bros, which was done to ensure complete authenticity. The characters and their weapons and clothes are very finely sculpted with numerous small details, making the figurines great collectibles.
One thing that might dissuade new collectors from purchasing is the fact that they are figures #23, #24, and #25, in the line, so some completionist collectors might not purchase them without having all of the previous ones. If, however, you love a specific character, then these collectibles will be great for you. In any case, most of them are still in stock so if this motivates you to collect them all, it shouldn’t be such a difficult task. Each character comes with a richly illustrated collector’s guide, which only increases the overall quality of the collectibles.
