Thorin, Signed, Sealed, Delivered! He’s Yours!

TORn announces that the New Zealand Post, in an exclusive arrangement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Warner Bros. Pictures, and the filmmakers, releases commemorative stamps and coins for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.


Here’s a great reason to send a letter to a loved one instead of email or text message.

I like the fact that Thorin takes centre-stage, just below Gandalf.

Before you start wishing that your country also introduces such commemorative items, it would seem NZ is the only country that has permission to produce them.

I wonder what it feels like to see your face on a stamp.

I think anyone apart from the Queen of England would find it unnerving 🙂

 Thorin coin

Although Thorin doesn’t really look like himself on the coins, but he does look regal.

Quick question though:

What’s that in his left hand?

  1. I wish I had a Kiwi friend!!! I would be lovely to receive mail with a Thorin stamp!!

  2. My dad was a coin and stamp collector. I never really got into the hobbies, but maybe I should make an exception this time around. 😉

  3. I wonder if some enterprising kiwi has realized that there is a market for these stamps and advertised on e-Bay.
