    TheOneRing.net is reporting a Cinescape article about WETA doing designs for the dropped characters from the books that didn't appear in the movies. They include Radagast the Brown, Bombadil, Goldberry, Glorfindel, and Elrond's sons Elrohir and Elladan.

    The Cinescape article: http://www.cinescape.com/0/editoria...ion=page&type_id=&cat_id=270351&obj_id=41037#

    And here is Radagast:

    Tom Bombadil and Goldberry both suck, I will go get you the pics of them.

    Radagast looks ok, I never pictured him with that much of a beard, but check out tom, it looks like his beard is glued on, the description of his outfit is just bad...

    But just wait till you see Goldberry, didn't she wear green, and she had blonde hair....
    Just nasty..

    and Glofindel is bad too..looks like a girl...

    I like Radagast but Tom Bombadil looks to old and I agree with EBM his beard just looks glued on.

    Ya his outfit is totally the wrong color and designed poorly, Goldberry is almost scary, dressed in blue instead of green, dirty blonde hair instead of hello....gold....

    Well... I think Goldberry is OK given the other two... but Tom... he's just so... ORDINARY in the picture, maybe that's the idea... I don't know.

    Glorfindel... can't they find someone better looking in New Zealand to pose for Glorfindel? Isn't he supposed to be one of the higher elves? That model in the pic just look like some kid on dope, with no depth, and no quality to his looks... there's no elven aura from that guy (same goes for Tom, and whatever aura that he gives out)... I guess it's just hard to find someone looking like that...

    Ack! They're awful! Goldberry is totally wrong, so I Tom. Aragorn Elessar is right about Glorfindel. He has no aura, and none of the wisdom and fierceness about him that I always pictured him with. As for Radagast, he's OK, but he's got that dumb look on his face that totally spoils it. None of the personality of Gandalf. None of them really have any personality...

    well Tom Bombadil IS ordinary looking if u read the book's description. he isn't even suppose to be tall. (like somewhere in between a hobbit and a men--read the books.) but surely they can do a better job on Glorfindel!! he's suppose to be on of the COOLEST elf ever!! dude i mean, he's been thru death and came back from it, surely not like THAT!! hummm.. i think the designers got carried away by legolas in the movie. elves r supposed to be look FAIR but not ridiciously pretty-boy look..

    Yeah I know Tom isn't supposed to look special (I didn't mean it the literal way when I said he looks ordinary), but I just feel that that look on the card doesn't exert a certain quality to the character... like I said, an aura, of whatever kind of an entity that he is... and I supposed everyone who know who we're talking about have read the books... ;)

    Goldberrys outfit and hair are both the wrong color, so is her complextion. Toms outfit is the wrong color. And glorfindel looks like a girl, not a warrior!!! Goldberry wore Green not blue, tom's hat was Bright blue right? not dull grey, his jacket was...what color was his jacket and his boots were yellow right...

    He does! And you know, he is Radagast the Brown, so for some reason I pictured him more... brown. WETA, what were you thinking?
