SDCC 2012 – The Bridge Direct Hobbit

Okay, the coverage got kicked off last night thanks to Samuron and Matt K, but I went by the Gentle Giant booth this morning and got a chance to talk to some of the nice folks from The Bridge Direct about their offerings for The Hobbit. They are not allowed to show a whole lot at this point, but they said they hope that Peter Jackson shows off some of the orcs and other monsters because they have more to show off. I did get to pick up the exclusive Invisible Bilbo figure, so I will have a feature on him after the Con.

What you see here is mostly from their 3 3/4 offerings, and even though that is not really “my scale” I will be picking up all of them. I am especially excited about getting all of the dwarves. They had to be coy about what all will be coming later, but I am PRAYING that we get all of the dwarves in the 6 inch scale. If you have any questions, ask in the comment section, I am just trying to get these up fast to get back to the con. Enjoy, I cannot wait until October when these will be released.

6 Inch

  1. Hate to say i’m REALLY disappointed in the quality in these figures – why didn’t ToyBiz get the contract again?

  2. What is the measurement of the Dwarves in the 3.75 inch scale? Is Gandolf 3.75 inches and the Dwarves maybe 2.5 or 2.75 inches? Or is Gandolf 4 + inches and the Dwarves 3.75 inches?

  3. Thanks VeeBee!! Do the 6″ figures look right in the relative scale department? Is Bilbo smaller than Thorin and about waist-high to Gandalf? Is Thorin about chest-high to Gandalf? Oh man, I hope PJ shows orcs in his footage… i’d love to see some more figures!!!
