UPDATED! : More Hobbit Toys On The Way

Word of The Hobbit toys from Bridge Direct already hitting Toys R Us shelves has been winding its way through many a blog..and we thought it time to show you what comes next! We've got some new visuals for you, so if you are the non-spoilery type, we suggest you avert your eyes immediately and hope our lead in pic has not ruined your day.

SO! What we are looking at today is a brand new 3 and 3 quarter inch action figure packs with Legolas and Tauriel, a Warg and Fimbul the Hunter, Bolg and Gandalf, and Grinah the Goblin who is missing a partner for the moment. We've also got a look at the Goblin King and Torin Oakenshield pack (Courtesy of, showing the massive size The Bridge is willing to put into their monsters...and why we didn't sob like big babies when we heard the nasty words "3 and 3 quarter inch" when we all wanted nothing but 6 inch figures to stand alongside out Toy Biz figure collections.We'll also take a peek at Legolas and Tauriel in the 6 inch format!

We've also got a look at the roleplay items from Bridge Direct which allow you to imagine yourself hacking through a sea of Orcs in your down time. It's the little things in life we must treasure.

So to break it down for you, single 3.75 inch figures include Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf the Grey, Thorin Oakenshield, Grinnah the Goblin and Legolas Greenleaf for $7.99 each. 2 packs include Bilbo and Gollum, Balin and Dwalin, Kili and Fili, and Legolas Greenleaf and Tauriel, with both Balin and Tauriel being EXCLUSIVE to the 2-Packs at this scale in this series for $14.99 each. Then there's the boxed set with Bilbo, Thorin, Kili, Fili and Dwalin for $29.99. A Deluxe 2 pack includes Gandalf and Bolg ($17.99), followed by a Beast Pack with Fimbul the Hunter and his Warg ($19.99) and the show stopper, the Battle Pack with the Goblin King and Thorin Oakenshield ($29.99). 6 inch collector figures include Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf the Grey, Thorin Oakenshield, Legolas Greenleaf and Tauriel, each with up to 12 points of articulation ($14.99). Roleplay items include Bilbo's Sword, Sting, featuring motion-activated battle sounds and a glowing blue light in 18 inches of molded plastic ($19.99), and a Dwarven Battle Axe (carried by Gloin the Dwarf) measuring 15 inches with a plastic molded handle and the blade in EVA foam. ($12.99)

Then there's NECA's life altering Gollum figure!! From what we can gather, this 12 inch piece of perfection will come with either a Gollum or Smeagol head, allowing you to choose your favorite evil hobbit face. Product wordage states "The figures stand over 12" tall and feature amazing detail and articulation based on Gollum/Smeagol's appearance in Lord of the Rings. Each figure is incredibly detailed and features over 25 points of articulation for endless variety of posing and crouching. This is the most accurate and most poseable version of Gollum or Smeagol ever released." These figures are set to drop in December.
