Is it just me, or does he look a bit like a Klingon??

It's not a great photo his hair gets in the way, he doesn't have a Klingon goatee, he has a proper beard which will reduce the Klingon effect.

I would have liked Thorin to have a large regal beard and a bit more grey to match the vision I had in my head., but so far I'm confident in the movie, these dwarves look good.

Can anyone else see Del Toros influence in these designs? because I'm sure I can.

He has a definite klingon vibe which is a pity as most of the dwarves, not the emo ranger, look fantastic.

That line about the Spectrum game just made me spit a mouthful of chewed omelette at my 3 year old. She now looks like the Swamp Thing. Thanks Empire.

Dead on, he looks totally Klingon. Hopefully in action he will look less like Gowran.

Quite frankly a majority of you are talking shit...Klingon? Surely Klingons look like Dwarfs but a bit taller..lets face it Dwarfs were here first! Beards!? For fucks sake.. as far as I'm concerned all the Dwarfs look great... this story is very close to my heart as its the first proper book I read (at 6 years old) and I know Peter Jackson will be true, along with kicking it into 21st century cinema as he he did with Lord of the Rings.

I am much more interested in what they intend to do about the elves
He almost overlooked them in his first three films to give more and more and more, ad nauseum, time to the hobbits........
