Bev-Link and Fish Brewing have teamed up to make beer for nerds who like Hobbits and wizards with long beards. This series of 10% ABV Hobbit themed beers is just what you need to quench your thirst while watching a ten-hour marathon of Peter Jackson movies.
If you are a fan of The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit, or if you are just like bearded wizards and staffs, have I got a product for you. ThinkGeek has unveiled a new full-size replica staff just like the one Gandalf uses in the latest film.
I’m not a big fan of Tarot cards, but these Lord of the Rings tarot cards might just make me interested in a reading. They come from Deviant Artist Sceith Ailm who is working on a Major Arcana for her tarot series.
By now everyone everywhere has heard of the Springs Fire that has been devastating southern California. It’s a serious problem that is costing people their lives and their homes, but at least one geeky story of bravery has come out of it.
If hobbits had their own brand of soda, it would be best to call it Lonely Mountain Cola. For those of you unfamiliar with the story, that’s a reference to the mountain which holds the hobbits’ treasure that was stolen by the greedy and wicken dragon, Smaug.
Contrary to popular belief, Hillywood is not a group composed of hillbillies who have nothing better than to do than make parodies of Hollywood’s most popular films. They’re actually a group of fine, upstanding folks who have nothing better to do than make awesome parodies of Hollywood’s most popular films.
Bilbo and Frodo are small enough as it is, but if they were even smaller they could live in this 10-inch-tall terrarium version of Bag End by FaceoftheEarth. This highly detailed, hand-sculpted house was made from reference shots from the movies.
There’s nothing more obnoxious than one of those guys with a pair of camouflage party pants and a hat that you can sip beer out of. But leave it to the geeks of the world to make drinking beer from a helmet just a little cooler.
Instructables contributor DucttapeNinja decided that the tacky sportsfan beer helmet needed a proper LARP-ing, and created this beer-sipping helmet thats’ based on Gimli’s helmet from the Lord of the Rings movies.
I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve seen armor that provides both head protection and ready access to alcohol – which is always a good thing to have around should you find yourself on the losing end of an axe fight.
DucttapeNinja thinks his helmet design could easily be applied to any helmet you’d like, so you could go for anything from a Beerba Fett, to a Sh*tfaced Spartan to a Daft Drunk with the proper helmet, and DtN’s Instructables beer helmet tutorial in hand.
We told you the other day about some upcoming LEGO Lord of the Rings minifigs and playsets on the way, and now we have some official images of the complete minifig collection, courtesy of the fine folks at LEGO (after a bit of Photoshop slicing-and-dicing to fit them all here.)
You! Shall Not! Scroll down before looking at this LEGO recreation of The Battle of Isengard from the Lord of the Rings: the Two Towers. While obviously not as daunting as the massive Middle-Earth, and made with fewer bricks and more people compared to the bricky Barad-dûr, no one would be unimpressed with this diorama.
One of the most impressive scenes in the LOTR books and movies is the Garrison of Moria. The incredible beauty and vastness of Moria was captured by a LEGO fan, who decided to convert a whole room into a tribute to this immense structure.
