Incredible New Hobbit Issue Of Empire

Five amazing 3D lenticular covers

Ladies and gentlemen, hold on to your hats lest your minds be blown or the hair on your feet stand on end! The December issue of Empire hits shelves tomorrow, and we have five gorgeous 3D lenticular covers to celebrate The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. That's right - move over Tito, Jermaine, Jackie, Marlon and Michael, there's a new Jackson Five in town!

Your choices are Bilbo (Martin Freeman), the titular halfling; Galadriel (Cate Blanchett), the elf queen; Gandalf (Ian McKellen) reprising his wizard role; Gollum (Andy Serkis), the twisted Ring addict, and Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), the leader of the dwarf band setting out on an adventure to reclaim their lost lands from the dragon Smaug.

In other words, our five covers give you a good cross-section of Middle-earth's varied population, and is as non-species-ist as we could manage (except against orcs. No one wants a goblin on the cover).They're also quite beautiful things and they appear to move and breathe on their own, which is rather lovely.

Choose your favourite, collect all five or turn your home into a Middle-earth extravaganza with hundreds - it's up to you! Subscribers will get their own exclusive cover, along with one of the lenticular covers separately from the magazine. It's a double-win!{Empire 3D Hobbit Subscribers Covers}
