The Company of Dwarves, LEGO style

Now I have all the Hobbit sets, and there's publicity around LEGO giving the cast of the movie their minifig equivalents, I thought it would be fun to line up the Company of Dwarves for a photo-shoot. I took my inspiration from this photo of the cast.

Thorin Oakenshield, their leader, is not in that picture for some reason, so here's one, like this one, where he is:

Nice.

Thorin is missing.
Or is Thorin not a dwarf?

this picture is great, and when I was looking on the internet, I saw the original picture and I thought that that would make a nice lego picture. Then I went to brickset.com and saw it and I thought I love it.
Nice picture, Huw

Awesome Picture Huw Thank you very much.

Any chance of getting an image that's 1080x3360 so I can proudly display this as my wallpaper at work until the launch of the film?

Thanks!

thanks for the picture :) The resemblances of the minifigures are all pretty good except ori - that hair piece is nothing like the actor's. i'd be pretty disappointed if that were me.

I can do you a hi res version but I don't think it will be quite as high as that.

Actually, I'll do one on a dark background tomorrow, to match the original a bit better and which should be more suitable for a wallpaper. I'll make it 1080x1920.

crud, this poster is just TOO awesome. Now I'm going to need to purchase me some dwarves... and I was doing so well, too :/ (checks pocket book, stares at cat... sells cat for Lego).

1080x1920 will format to my desktop wallpaper perfectly.

Thanks Huw!

Does Thorin's hair allow a quiver like Fili's and Kili's?

@HUW - Curse you! (not really) I am doing all that I can to spare my wallet and let it build up to finish off the LoTR sets...

...and you go and post this bit of awesomeness.

None of them come with fishing poles or fish! How did that escape Lego?

Great picture Huw. I'm expecting demand for these to massively increase once the film has been out! If the level of detail was transfered into TLG's future castle stuff that would be amazing.
