The Hobbit T-Shirt

“In a hole in the ground, there lived a hobbit.” – JRR Tolkien

I can see the Lonely Mountain coming into view, and all those riddles in the dark. Yes, I’m getting plenty excited about the new film, and to celebrate, here’s a Hobbit T-Shirt for you to enjoy.

Into the Misty Mountains, and through Mirkwood. From Hobbiton to Esgaroth. Meeting dwarves and trolls and elves and eagles… It’s going to be good. I know it’s going to be good because the cast is great and Peter Jackson is in charge again and I’ve been eagerly watching the making of vids over and over again on Youtube. I’m very much looking forward to the Hobbit films (all three of them) and coupled with the recent Star Wars news, it’s a good time to be a cinema-going geek. The Hobbit holds a special place in my heart, and though I know the film won’t do the book justice, because no film can ever live up to the images in your head, I still can’t wait to sit there with a massive tub of popcorn and enjoy it. It was the first book that my father ever gave to me and I still have his dog-eared copy on my book shelf that I gently flick through from time to time. When I was a kid, what fascinated me the most were the maps, drawn by Tolkien’s son, Christopher. They were simple, but at the same time perfect for prompting your imagination to create Middle Earth around them. And so I was thrilled when I saw this t-shirt online. That image of the Lonely Mountain and the devilish and devious Smaug flying above it reminds me of hearing of Bilbo’s adventures for the first time, and therefore this is an awesome tee.

If you want one for yourself, simply head over to and add one to your knapsack. It’ll cost you $19.99 (while it’s still on special offer – it’s usually $24.99), it comes in this cream colour, and sizes range from Small to 2XL. I shall be sporting something similar on the film’s opening night. If I could get my hands on a big Hobbit foam finger and silly hat, I’d be wearing those too. And now, to paraphrase JRR himself: So comes snow after fire, and even blog posts have their endings.
