The Hobbit - Bilbo Baggins Exclusive Figure from San Diego Comic Con

We first heard word that action figures would be coming soon from Bridge Direct for The Hobbit late last year and we were very excited. We have a great Lord of the Rings collection from Toy Biz during the releases of the trilogy. We would miss the LOTR action figures once we learned that the line would end. 

Great news is that there will be a full line from Bridge Direct and we are anxiously waiting to see what they will be creating. Great news for San Diego Comic Con attendees though! We will have the opportunity to hopefully get our hands on the SDCC Exclusive Bilbo Baggins figure from Bridge Direct.

Thanks to,  who received the official press release from Bridge Direct, we have pictures of this amazing exclusive!

From TORN:

This 6″ figure will be available at the Gentle Giant Booth #3513 and Entertainment Earth Booth #2343 for $25 all while limited to just 3,000 pieces world wide. We here at TORn are also pleased to announce that because of the awesomeness of The Bridge Direct we will be giving away not ONE but TWO of these figures. Starting today and running through the end of Comic-Con on July 15th at midnight PST. Send your entries to my email to get yourself in the running. Please include your name and shipping info in the email in case you are one of the lucky, random winners. As the subject of the email put: The Bridge Direct’s Hobbit Contest
