Pre-Order Critique. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Apprehension
But that's not really what's bothering me. Have you really looked at the new minis? They're just...ugly. I mean, orcs and goblins are supposed to be ugly, I guess, but while the LotR orcs and goblins and uruks were ugly, at least they were...stylish, I guess. The Hobbit goblins and hunter orcs are just ugly and goofy looking. The minis themselves are either a calamity, or an accurate representation of very poor movie villains. I honestly hope it's the former, but it's giving me a moment of pause about the forthcoming movie.
Surely, if I cannot have faith in Peter Jackson, what can I believe in?
