The Juggernaut Continues. Sir Peter is smiling somewhere.


I was napping a good portion of the day. My sinuses are much better; I just feel kind of–wobbly, for lack of a better term. Sort of like a human version of the three-legged tuxedo cat, in fact.

It was fun catching up on all the comments tonight and discovering the latest Thorin merchandise via Aprilviolet’s blog. And yes, I succumbed.

OK, I know Thorin does not have his long locks here, but darn, he’s cute. And I love that he looks so fierce and yet–so cuddly all at once.  Yes, Benny, my Christmas presents are being taken care of early . . .

Estimated shipping date is late October. Below is the link to the UK site carrying the items, which also include a plush Gandalf, Gollum, Bilbo and Goblin King.

Tomorrow this should arrive from Love that a certain alpha dwarf is on the front of this calendar:

Wednesday, this guy, also from Amazon, is due to arrive. It’s not as handsome as the real thing, of course,  but I like the details and you get TWO weapons. 😉

*Remember, when you order anything through Amazon US or Amazon UK, use the portal at and a portion of your purchase will go to Richard Armitage‘s designated charities. It’s a way to give back as Richard has encouraged us to while shopping for things you need–and things you just simply WANT. 😉

I should also mention that collecting such items really isn’t terribly outside the sphere of normality for moi. After all, I had a whole collection of novelty bedroom slippers at one time–and one of my birthday gifts was an 11th Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver. Complete with lights and sounds.  I happened to mention I’d like to have one while Hubby and I were watching BBCA one Saturday night and hey presto–I got one. The kitties love it. I give them–CAT scans. (Sorry, couldn’t resist).

I really am just a kid in a grown-up body, after all.

  1. I’ve never been a collector of anything (unless you count shoes, which I don’t, because they’re a necessity. I just happen to like them and have lots of them. 😉 ) so I guess I could be forgiven for succumbing to the Hobbit merchandising at my time of life!
    I’m now the proud owner of an RA autographed photo of Thorin, a Thorin mug, and a Hobbit annual, with two books and a calendar on the way. I’ve decided the only way I’m going to keep myself under control is to only buy things that have Richard as Thorin images, so that makes my credit card safe from the plush toy and the little action figures! *sigh* Plush Thorin is very cute though.
    I hope that Richard’s Just Giving charities do well as a result of our shopping!

    Glad to hear you are feeling better, Angie, if a little wobbly. *hugs*

    • Oh, yeah, shoes are a necessity!! My accessory weakness is handbags. And at one time, scarves. 😉

      I have the annual, too, and neglected to mention there are three more books on the way from Amazon in November and December. I thought I would confine my post to my arrivals for this week and my latest purchase. 😉 Actually, I loved the plush Gandalf, too. I would love to hug Sir Ian anyway, I adore him, too! LOL And I love Thorin’s key necklace . . . *sigh* You really could go broke if you bought everything out there that is (and will be) offered . . . although I would really like a Thorin mug. You know, that’s practical, right?? 😉
