A new poster for the Hobbit film was released today, and Smaug was on it! So now the question must be answered, is this the official Smaug?
I'm going to say yes. The minifigs are identical to their physical selves, the spiders are identical to their LEGO set counter parts, so why not Smaug? Plus all the guys in LEGO LOTR the video game were identical to the official minifig, sooooo...yeah, I think there is a pretty good chance this is the official Smaug.
A few things to notice however, he is not a re-colored castle dragon. He uses a ball joint piece for the wings, to increase the flexibility. The wings also have 'fingers', or claws if you prefer, that are movable.
I gotta say, I wouldn't be upset if this is Smaug. He looks pretty good!
Well, with that news out of the way, what's up? I got a flood of comments on my last creation about the snow, so I guess a lot of you guys are cold! I'm also working on a drawing...Pippin that is. I'll post it here when I'm done!
What do think of Smaug? Think it will be the one in the next wave of sets? If so, do you like it? See ya!
