A tweet posted by Mr. A of the “Plush Thorin” doll. In spite of RA’s words to the contrary, I can attest that Plush Thorin is, in fact, quite cuddly and absolutely adorable. And yes, he’s pretty fierce with those angry blue eyes! Just can’t resist that intensity. *sigh* Sure, he can kick ass. But there’s that vulnerable side you just want to *cough* take to your bosom.
Both I and my late, great three-legged tuxedo cat, Thumper, found Plush Thorin to be, like the ChaRActer he is modeled after, completely irresistible. Just take a gander . . . a couple of pix from 2012.
