Warner Bros. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Bilbo Baggins :6 Scale Statue by Weta
A quiet life in the sleepy gardens of The Shire was all Bilbo Baggins ever knew that he wanted, but when his home is invaded by thirteen rowdy Dwarves and the White Wizard Gandalf, the gentleman of Hobbit finds himself enlisted as a burglar on a perilous quest across Middle-earth’s Wilderland to reclaim treasure from a dragon. An adventurous spirit is not a quality prized among Hobbit folk, so the formerly respectable Bilbo Baggins’s sudden departure comes as much as a surprise to him as it is to his neighbors. Bilbo Baggins blames it on the Tookish blood in his veins. That side of the family was always the most odd and taken to unhobbity impulses of curiosity.
And indeed he will come to count on every ounce of Took in him to save himself and Bilbo’s companions once the journey begins. Middle-earth is a dangerous place and the Company in which he travels is of a kind that attracts unwanted attention. If he returns from this quest alive, Bilbo will not be the same Hobbit who ran from his front door, having forgotten his pocket handkerchief.Weta continues the legacy of producing finely crafted, highly detailed 1/6 scale collectible polystone statues from Middle-earth.
