CHRISTMAS SHIPPING UPDATE!

Midnight tomorrow (December 19th) is the last chance for customers in the UK, Northern Ireland and the Australian states of Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland to have an order sent to their home with standard shipping in time for Christmas.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is out in cinemas around the world and, to celebrate, we’ve got three new models on pre-order: Azog, Bolg and Bard the Bowman, Girion’s Heir.

By now you’ll all know these characters, whether you’ve seen the final film or not. Azog is the leader of the Dark Lord’s armies, a massive pale Orc that towers over all around him. All, that is, apart from Bolg, who commands the armies of Gundabad and rides a Warg easily as large as the White Warg ridden by his father. Armed with a brutal, double-bladed axe, his head stitched up with metal plates, Bolg is a terrifying warrior to behold.

The new version of <em>Azog</em> shows him delivering a backhand strike with his mace. Knowing Azog’s formidable strength, the blow was almost certainly fatal.
