First Look at the Hobbit’s Goblin KingWHAT IS WRONG WITH HIS FACE



Another day, another Hobbit toy that is our first look at a new character. This time it’s the Goblin King, which I’m putting after the jump because it might be a spoiler for some of you, but also because… uh… you’ll see.


I think it was a bold choice for Peter Jackson to make the Goblin King’s head a giant ballsack, but… actually, I have nothing to follow that up with. Dude looks like balls. End of story. (Via ToyNewsI)
