A good look at The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘s Goblin King is now online, albeit in toy form. Although smaller images of the upcoming “Goblin King with Thorin 3.75″ Battle Pack” have made their way to Amazon, TheOneRing.net scored a close-up look at the toy’s monstrous form. Check it out below!
Barry Humphries will be playing the Goblin King in the film. Announced for the part last year, Peter Jackson spoke very highly of Humphries’ talent.
“[W]e’re looking forward to seeing him invest the Goblin King with the delicate sensitivity and emotional depth this character deserves,” Jackson wrote. “…Humphries will be portraying the Goblin King, in much the way Andy Serkis created Gollum.”
