The Hobbit:The Desolation of Smaug Toy Collection from The Bridge Direct – Fall 2013
October 15, 2013

We are excited to share an update and new images of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug toy line from The Bridge Direct!

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventure of Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and 13 Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, and the terrifying presence that lays in wait deep inside. But first they will have to get through the treacherous Mirkwood Forest, and face Thranduil, King to a race of dangerous and unpredictable Woodland Elves. Escaping the Elf-king, the Company arrive at the shores of Lake-town which borders a waste-land known as the Desolation of Smaug; a land destroyed by a giant fire-breathing Dragon many years ago. As they journey east, under siege from Azog and his Orcs, they must also stay beyond the reach of the mysterious Necromancer that has risen at Dol Guldur.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    Hi! Just a quick message to say I really like your “Hobbit” toy figures which have been on sale at “Home Bargains”. The figures seem to be of a very high standard. I like them so much I bought all of them that I could get hold of in my local shop for my four year old Nephew. What was especially great was that they were very heavily reduced i this store. Do you have a brochure, catalogue or web site featuring images of all of the figures in the range and are you still manufacturing them.
