A recap of this past week's events
Fan art, awesome stuff from Weta, movie awards, and art from the upcoming Lego The Hobbit video game have all been seen and discussed in the world of Tolkien fandom. If you have been wondering why I use the phrase 'world of Tolkien fandom' so much, it is because the works of J.R.R. Tolkien have on the largest fan bases in the world, with members spanning across continents. See what these thousands, and very possibly millions of people have been up to in the past week!
John Lunn, an extremely talented flute maker, decorated a flute with scenes from The Hobbit for a hardcore Tolkien fan. He did a fantastic job, I must say, even though I know very little about flutes. TheOneRing.net has a large gallery of pictures of this flute and you can see more of John Lunn's work at his official site, lunnflutes.com.
The Weta Workshop is now offering of complete set of the three trolls from The Hobbit, Bert, Tom, and William, for $175.00.
