Funko Pop Vinyl figures from The Desolation of SmaugShipping from the Funko warehouse this week are the 3.75" vinyl collectible figures from Peter Jackson's epic sequel, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Listed as Series 2 in the Hobbit Pop! line, there are five Pop! vinyl characters in this collectible set of Middle Earth denziens.

A new invisible Bilbo Baggins design leads the way, this time apparently wearing his One Ring. The translucent vinyl is a great effect. Also returning is Gandalf the Gray, missing his wizard hat. I'm not sure what happened to it; I guess we'll see in the Desolation of Smaug itself. The bow-wielding Legolas Pop! figure looks great. I wonder how they're working him into the story. Thorin Oakenshield and his sword rounds out the set of good-guy Hobbit figures in Series 2, with Azog the sinister white Orc representing Team Evil in this brand-new set of Hobbit toys.

Of note, there was earlier a rumor of Smaug himself making a Pop! appearance, but online Funko retailer Asylum Hollywood confirmed that the dread dragon is not arriving with this week's shipment of Funko goodies... but didn't squash the rumor dead itself. We'll just have to wait and see, eh?

It's not too late to join the Asylum Hollywood waiting list for this series. By simply clicking "Add To Waiting List" on the character you need, you'll receive an email the minute these Funko Pop! Desolation of Smaug vinyl toys are on the shelves and available.
