The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is in theaters now, and as with the other Tolkien films, there are a lot of toys being introduced to coincide with the movie.
The 6” scale figures from The Bridge Direct are remarkably identical to the onscreen characters. As of this post, there are only 7 characters: Radagast, Legolas, and Azog to name a few. The faces on these figures are truly artistic and Azog, the character I received, looks quite frightening.
Fans and kids alike will enjoy these toys. The fans will enjoy them as collectibles and kids will enjoy playing with them; their movable pieces and durable structure ensure they last through many a good battle and live to see another day.
Fans and kids will also enjoy the 3.75” Scale Box sets for the same reasons.
Pros: The toys have a great look to them and their durableness will make fans happy.
Cons: There are not many characters available and kids will have to supplement with other toys to round out a good battle.
Price: 6” Scale Characters- $14.99 each
3.75 Scale Box set – $29.99
