Love doesn’t cost a thing, but admiring Thorin doesn’t come cheap…

The time has come for the good folks behind The Hobbit to start digging in our pockets.

Good luck trying to squeeze a penny out of me, as all they’ll find in mine is a used-up tissue and some lint šŸ˜‰

It’s been wonderful reading about all the purchases though!

Seba just received his The Hobbit Annual 2013.

It looks absolutely beautiful!

You can’t beat gorgeous images on high-quality glossy paper.

CheckĀ out the lovely pics he’s posted, like the one on top šŸ™‚

A few days ago Servetus shared her thoughts on the WETA Thorin figure she’s bought, and it really is a thing of beauty!

It’s in three parts, and let me tell you, if you haven’t read it, you must make the time!

I was so moved, I didn’t dare leave a comment.

In Part One she shares her conflicting thoughts on the character, Part Two offers thoughts on the figure, Ā Part Three had me in tears.

Jas has listed Thorin items that you can purchase and urges you to crack open the piggy bank.

Some speak to me more than others, although the one I’d spend my money on isn’t (as of yet) on offer.

I’d love a Thorin Bobblehead!

Don’t ask me why, I just would.

It could just sit on my desk or by my bed, agreeing with me all day!

Thanks Jas for making myĀ Thorin BobbleheadĀ dream come true!

I was wondering whatĀ I will end up buying, apart from the DVD’s.

A poster is out of the question, as I wouldn’t actually hang it up, andĀ I can’t afford the WETA figure.

The Gentle GiantĀ Bust looks too scary, plus why get the Armitage as Thorin imageĀ if it’s not his whole body?

Yes, I do understand the concept of ‘the bust’, but what about those sexy dwarf thighs and bum?

And does he have to look like he’s driven that sword right through his foot?

Don’t get me wrong, it looks like it’s made beautifully, but perhaps not a mustĀ for a Richard Armitage fan.

I also have to bear in ming my other Hobbit crush meaningĀ Aidan Turner who plays Kili.

Yeah, I’m going to give that a miss too…

Unless they’d let me pick n’ mix and I could get just the Thorin and Kili figureĀ from this set:

Apart from the WETA figure, nothing on offer has screamed at me as of yet.

I’ll get a Thorin mug made soon, and I’llĀ design a few T-shirts for the Hobbit premier, but as far as I can tell, that’s all for now.

Having said that, there’s probably tons of yummy Thorin OakenshieldĀ merchandise ahead, so never say never!

Best start diving between the sofa cushions and saving up those pennies šŸ™‚

What will you be getting?
