Before it was a film, it was a book. The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, better known by its abbreviated title, The Hobbit, was a fantasy novel and childrens book written by J. R. R. Tolkien and first published in 1937. Even today, though, it remains a standard of classic reading and popular choice by all, and Dark Knight Armoury pays homage to its reputation with a variety of great licensed The Hobbit products. Originally written as a stand-alone story, the tale became a precursor to The Lord of the Rings, creating a prequel for what would be one of the greatest novels of all times. In the story, traditional hobbit Bilbo is taken from his quiet life on a real adventure, one that introduces him to hardship, conflict, and camaraderie and puts him face to face with orcs, mountains, elves, dragons, and more, all of which help him to grow into an equally adventurous little traveler whose wanderlust eventually defines his character. Here at Dark Knight Armoury, we offer a huge selection of products, ranging from fine little collectibles to great looking weapons, and more!
