The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies Blu-ray to include two minifigs

Posted by ,

If, like me, you're Hobbit minifig complete you'll either be pleased or annoyed that there is still one more to get hold of despite the theme having ended.

A Blu-Ray edition of The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies will be available with a regular Bard the Bowman minifig together with an exclusive version of Bain. In the USA it will be a Target exclusive. There's no word on availability outside the USA yet but I suspect it will turn up elsewhere, they usually do.

Thanks to richardwsales for the news.

Oh! Why not old man Bilbo? :(

I hope I don't have to get it from Australia like last time, but that it now will be available in NL as well.

Yes, you're right, corrected.

Why Target? Ah well, I will just wait for the Hobbit Trilogy to come out later on.

I'm with Tan Tile - wish we'd gotten an old Bilbo, would have tied everything together nicely. We've got the Bard and a version of Bain already - while I get it fits with the film still feel like they missed a trick here. Custom Old Bilbo it'll have to be - just need grey hobbit hair!

Why not armored Azog? I would've LOVED that figure and a thorin with a different head. I'll still get this of course , since I collect all this , but Azog armored or (like others have said) old bilbo would've been better than the same bard and an exclusive Bain...

Bain? Bain? Please, nearly anything would have been better....

I made Old Bilbo using Ollivander from the Harry Potter Diagon Alley set :) But an official Old Bilbo would have been fantastic, or any from the long list of characters who haven't made it into minifig form.

Old Bilbo would have been so much better than "blue coat he wore for 5 seconds" Bilbo...

COOL!

Instead of complaining about another version of Bain, why not rejoice that the Bard minifig -- previously found as an "exclusive" SDCC promo and in the pricey 79017 Battle of the Five Armies set -- is available in a more affordable blu ray/dvd combo pack? I know AFOLs have to complain about something, but I'm quite pleased with this offering.

I've missed each one of the pack-in Hobbit minifigures because they don't warrant a 30$ purchase of the normal film when the extended edition will be out later. :|

While getting two minifigures is cool, I have to agree with the crowd and say an old Bilbo or an armored Azog would have been better. They also could have done a Saruman with leg printing, or a completely trans-orange Sauron. Still, can't complain about getting two figs.

@blounty23: I think they're going for the Bain/Ed Sheeran look.
