Hobbits? Lego Fans?

I just purchased "The Hobbit" for PC.

Check out the sign for the "Green Dragon Inn" located in the town of Hobbiton.

Looks like a doctored screenshot. I have 3D games and the angle on that sign doesn't look right as is with the coloring and lighting shades. :P

Not to mention the suspicious image address.

:shock: Woh.

I hear you Legofreak. TLC said it won't licence the Lord of the Rings. TLC not say anything about Hobbit! Could be interesting. Yes, it could be interesting. What a rollercoaster these last few months have been though. Still, it's very interesting...

Good game?

Yes, I noticed that too on the PS2 version. I was pretty piseed. Thats property of Majisto (and his ugly witch cousin). The hyperlink is interesting too. I'm a conspiracy freak, I love stuff like this. If nothing the artist of the game was greatly "inspired" by the LEGO dragon. Take that Mega Block!

I assure you it has not been doctored in any way.

I just bought the game last night, started playing and the dragon just jumped out at me. I took a screen shot, uploaded it and posted it here for discussion.

Not sure if this would be a licensing issue or not?

So this is "THe Hobbit" game right? Do they make this for XBox or GC by chance?
Also Armothe. Those figs in your sig are custom by you correct? Do you have a Brickshelf page or site?
