Heads up: There could be more Thorin Oakenshield merch coming

Sol Zaentz is selling their Tolkien IP rights. Expected price: $2B USD and upwards. This was an interesting article. I did not realize that Hobbit films were also involved in the ongoing litigation between the various stakeholders.

I’m trying to think about which new Thorin merch I’d want. I could go for some ceramics for sure, and maybe some really good dwarf-forged cooking utensils and pans.

Told ya I loved Fiestaware.

  1. Is it “normal” to be watching The Hobbit trilogy several times a week?? And get chills every time I hear, and watch, Richard Armitage sing, “Misty Mountains Cold”?
    I want Thorin merch and Fiestaware!

    • Thorin is irresistible — I’ve certainly seen AUJ upwards of forty times in the theater and on TV and screens.

      I also feel like some of the hot Finnish porcelain designers should get in on this. High style!

      • Thank you, Serv, for answering my silly question! I was watching AUJ last night and paused on scene when dwarves are frolicking naked in the fountain, trying to see who was who. I know you guys have intelligent conversations here – – when you go high I go low😉!
        Merch: I would love models of Thorin arms and hands.
        Last rhetorical: Is it normal to stare at pictures of the back of a man’s neck??


        • I think the only reason we didn’t discuss that extensively was that it was maybe not in the original version, but only in the extended one?

          Thorin hands!

          Back of neck: I’m sure you found that post about his hairline, no? 🙂

  2. I’ll take the Thorin merch. Some hair product would be nice, actually. Would love to have those luscious locks.

  3. LOL! Maybe his stout footwear? Although perhaps the world needs more of this:


  4. How about a pillow of Thorin to bury your face into every night? And maybe have some more Pop!Thorins made. I didn’t get one at the time and the second hand prices on Ebay are exorbitant. I’m not going to pay $100 for such a little doll.
