What It Is
On December 14, 2012, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters. This is the first of three films adapting the popular book The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Fans and collectors will appreciate the attention to detail, while the included accessories and poseability of the figures offers a lot of play value to kids.
Who It’s For
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 3.75-inch Action Figures are for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings fans ages 4 and up.
These will appeal to kids who want to play out adventures with the characters and older collectors.
What To Be Aware Of
Some of the 3.75-inch action figures aren't exactly 3.75 inches tall. For example, Bilbo Baggins is about three inches tall, but that makes sense because, as a hobbit, he is supposed to be smaller than some of the other characters.
