Jas has unearthed these bizarre Krüger /Hobbit products that can be purchased in Germany.
It was bound to happen that The Hobbit will inevitably go into The Spice Girls mode of the late 90s where ANYTHING and EVERYTHING had their image on it.
I wonder if, due to image reasons, there will be less Hobbit products available in the US, whereas Europe and Asia will be snowed under by them.
I’m waiting for the fast food deal where kids can get a plastic Hobbit toy with their Happy Meal.
If they were giving away a Thorin, I’d feel compelled to try to get my hands on one.
I know Sir PJ has bills to pay and filming three Tolkien movies back to back doesn’t come cheap, so let’s see how far he pushes it.
I know he’ll be getting plenty of my money!
Another important question is what’s next?
Will the dwarves run around with a can of Coke?
I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loathe product placement in films and TV series.
It’s beyond tacky and always looks so artificial.
Back to the product that sparked this train of thought.
A Thorin Classico Cappucciono anyone?
Servetus translated the writing on the packaging as:
“Classically tasty and in the good Italian style — that’s how Thorin Oakenshield, the prince of the dwarves, who leads his followers in the struggle against the dragon, likes it. Assemble your companions around you and enjoy a delicious cup of classic cappuccino!”
So we know Thorin likes it hot, steaming and creamy 😉
Good for him!
I always knew there was something frothy about our darling Head Dwarf!
