Watto's Junk Yard / Re: 'The Hobbit' movie
« on: December 20, 2013, 09:55 AM »
No, it actually was an honest question, but I think Greg answered it nicely in his post (thanks). I do recall there being some modification of the Azog character but I didn't pick up on how Bolg related to that. I won't even get into Fimbul and Yazneg.

Ah, I didn't see Greg's earlier answer too...  but yep, that's what's been speculated.  I think once the PJ decided that he needed a more intimidating Azog and went the CGI route then the design for Bolg (his son) needed to change as well.  Also in the original two part story, Azog wasn't even going to be the main Orc bad guy - this was supposed to be Bolg.  If fact, originally Bolg was the orc stationed at Dol Guldor with the "Legions"... this all go turned around when PJ decided to expand to 3 movies and inserted Azog as the main baddy. So Azog ends up in Dul Guldor and Bolg is sent out to do the dirty work.

Since Azog was added about 5 weeks before the movie was released (or so the says the internet speculation) then all the merchandisers were left with a toy (old Bolg) that was actually only added in a flashback scene to the Battle of Azanulbizar.  Look closely and you can see young Dwalin killing this character.

There was also a change to the Smaug design... originally he was a four legged / two winged dragon and then was later changed to be the "integrated" wing/leg design we have now.  I believe this even changed from the Theatrical release of AUJ and the Extended Edition DVD/Blu release.

Why does my Bolg action figure look nothing like the guy in the movie?

Is that rhetorical sarcasm or an honest question?  If its an honest why I can fill in some of the details from what I've read online about the Bolg switcheroo.

Good stuff.... Enjoyed the midnight show a lot but I'm getting too old for this foolish behavior.

At those prices, it better smell like a Taun Taun both on the outside and on the inside!

It's compelling to the show runners though because it's much easier to keep the costs down when you only have to pay a handful of the "name" actors each episode.

I hadn't thought of that angle... that is a shame if that drives the story.  But it does make sense.

I suspect it will probably take a couple episodes into the spring season before the group finds themselves together again.   Sory of like when the scattered after the farm burned down.   Some part of the group will probably meet the new characters being introduced too (Abraham ? I think that was his name) before the group is reunited.

I hope they aren't split for too long though as I don't like the disjointed series of skipping whole character groups for entire episodes like was common with Woodbury last year and the Govenor episodes this year.

I really liked this mid-season finale... Agree lots to process.

Too much to process right now - but - I see that Clara made an appearance......

Who was Clara?  I know they focused in a couple of walkers but I couldn't place any of them.

I saw The Lone Ranger on the plane yesterday...maybe I'm stupid or maybe I don't know what a good movie is but I really enjoyed it.  I totally see what they were trying to do with it, the humor and characters were very much POTC.  I also sense the bad reviews really sunk them from the start...anyone else ever see it?

I had a very similar experience to you. Watched it on the plane and really enjoyed it too.

That looks really awesome!  Great looking display... the Hasbro and Kubrick pieces really seem to go together nicely!

Tried to get be for my son this morning. I got to Target early and was 17th in line. They had 16 to sell.  The hunt is on... Not sure why we didn't preorder this.

I think next week will be an hour long episode about what the Governor and his cronies have been up to since they left.  S those waiting for the Rick/Darryl confrontation will most likely have to wait two weeks.

Sorry to disrupt the talking dead bashing... But I completely agree with Matt. I think next week is (unfortunately) going to be entirely about the Governor. We probably won't see a lot of the prison except maybe or the mini cliff hanger at the end.

Maybe she comes into contact with our good friend Phillip?

Or ends up with a role in the spinoff series.

I hadn't thought about that!  Could be the long term plan.

Can't believe I forgot to mention the bit about the radio. It was quickly overshadowed by the car hijiinks with the herd, but who WAS that on the radio?

Seems like maybe a good way to introduce another comic favorite...drum roll please: ABRAHAM

You read it here first.

The show producer mentioned something about the Comics in reference to the radio part. Well she said it may or may not be related to the comics. Having not read the comics, I have no reference.

Three black people went out with one white guy, and none of them died.

I don't even know what show I'm watching anymore.

I thought we were going to lose one for sure. I'm still it sure how Tyreese made it out. I figured he would as it didn't seem like it was his time yet.
