On May 13, Hobbit toy makers The Bridge Direct started releasing clues about this year’s San Diego Comic-Con exclusive figure. Three clues were released last week, encouraging fans to email their answers for a chance to win the limited edition figure. Today via the Bridge Direct Facebook and Twitter accounts, they made the announcement:
We are excited to announce:
San Diego Comic-Con 2013 Exclusive Hobbit Collector Figure Azog
Our 7″ tall Orc Commander Azog comes in a numbered, limited edition of 2,600 pieces. Azog is depicted as he appears in the prologue scene from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. In the battle between the dwarves and an army of orcs to reclaim Moria, Azog holds the severed head of the dwarf King Thror up in victory. The figure comes with interchangeable hands – the right hand that holds Thror’s head can be replaced with a hand capable of holding either his dagger or mace, and the left hand can be switched with the prosthetic spikes that replaced the hand he lost to Thorin’s sword.

The five winners have been notified by email. Congratulations!
In case you missed the clues, here they are!
Was it just wishful thinking to guess Smaug? Because I really, really wanted it to be Smaug! Who did you guess? And what do you think of Azog?
