New Images from The Hobbit Films

So here we have a whole new spate of new images from The Hobbit app that Warner Bros released. Now I wish they would do this for android phones as well – I am not even going to ask for something for my Blackberry because I know that is not going to happen. But who knows? We are after all, talking about a realm where dragons fly. 馃檪 But apart from my meagre cribbing, let me get down directly to sharing the goodies that I gathered.

Gl贸in (Glow)

Peter Hambleton as Gloin

Gl贸in, son of Gr贸in, was one of the twelve companions of Thorin II Oakenshield and Bilbo Baggins on the Quest of Erebor. He was a descendant of Durin the Deathless, and brother of 脫in. Gl贸in and his son Gimli were sent to Rivendell as an embassy from D谩in II to bring news of Erebor, Moria, and what they knew of Sauron’s plans; they arrived in time to attend the Council of Elrond. He is set to be played by Peter Hambleton in Peter Jackson’s live-action, cinema production of The Hobbit. He was a playable hero in the Dwarven Faction in the Electronic Arts Real-Time Strategy game The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II, and specialized in attacks that would either destroy or disable the opponents’ buildings.
