I'm just going to assume these are real because 1) they match the official promo pics Lego has been releasing recently for their upcoming LotR
sets, and 2) they look fucking fantastic. God, the amount of unique personality they've packed into each little Hobbit is amazing. You know, it's just dawned on me that in the very near future I'll be able to purchase a Christopher Lee as Saruman Lego figure.
...please excuse me, as I need to go change my underpants. Infinite thanks to Mike S. for the tip.
