Bilbo Action Figure Pics - Xoanon @ 12:23 PST
Mr. Clark sends us these pics of the Bilbo action figure which, in my opinion, are right on the mark, and are a VAST improvement on the rather horrid Aragorn action figures we showed you last week.

The Annotated Hobbit is Back! - Calisuri @ 23:09 PST
A new edition of the Annotated Hobbit, by Douglas Anderson, will be available on store shelves this June 26th. This long time favorite book of Tolkien fans worldwide has been out of print for quite a while. It looks like the success of the films and the revival of Tolkien interest has spurred its reissue. It also looks like a new cover has been designed for the book. Here is the description from the Houghton Mifflin website:

J.R.R. Tolkienís beloved novel The Hobbit has deep roots in European folklore, mythology, and language. As a readerís introduction to Tolkienís Middle-earth, it contains references to the ancient history of this imaginary world which, though rarely explained, contribute greatly to the effect of Tolkienís art. This revised and expanded edition of The Annotated Hobbit unobtrusively and authoritatively illuminates the novelís antecedents and curiosities. Douglas Anderson has also collected here wonderful illustrations from all over the world. The many new annotations in this edition reflect more than a decadeís additional scholarship on the history and evolution of The Hobbit, and the annotations and illustrations are newly integrated with the core text in a handsome reader-friendly format. This edition also reproduces the fully corrected text of The Hobbit as J.R.R. Tolkien approved it before his death, in 1973. Anderson has compared every page from every major edition of The Hobbit with Tolkienís own last checking copy in the restoration work for this definitive edition.

You can pre-order your copy today at Amazon.com! [Buy]
