New Stuff From ‘The Hobbit’ Gives A First Glimpse Of Evangeline Lilly As Tauriel

By: 09.25.12  •  14 Comments

Tolkien Week may be over, but we’re still seeing more from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. This time around we have the first look at some of the characters in the form of the action figures showing up early on Ebay. These give us a sense of what Evangeline Lilly’s new character (the elf Tauriel) looks like. We also get to see the Orc chieftain Bolg, Fimbul The Hunter and a Warg, the Great Goblin, and his minion Grinnah. The Great Goblin is called the Goblin King for some reason, but Jareth will always be the only Goblin King to us.

There’s also a new poster reminiscent of the Lord Of The Rings trilogy:

Bilbo Baggins (played by Martin Freeman) gets his closeup in what is probably safe to guess is the first of many character one sheets to come. As Empire points out, it’s not that dissimilar from the Viggo Mortensen/Aragon one sheet from oh so long ago. [The Playlist]

The poster is below, and the toys are on the next page since they might be a Hobbit spoiler. You can try to argue that we shouldn’t post leaked photos of the merchandise, but your argument was already invalidated three paragraphs ago.

Compare this to teaser posters for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King:
