We got the royal young bucks and some West Virginian Hobbits!
Two more images have been released this week (in advance of ComiCon) revealing 5 more Dwarves that will be joining Biblo on his Unexpected Journey .
First off are the youngest of the Dwarves, Kili and Fili:

I like it, as it represents such a departure on what we thought a Middle Earth Dwarf could and should look like; those duel wielding blades of Fili are pretty rad, and Kili is holding what looks to be a large Honda Civic key to every (dwarf) woman's heart.
Here is the official studio bio blurb:
Two of the youngest Dwarves, Fili and Kili have been born into the royal line of Durin and raised under the stern guardianship of their uncle, Thorin Oakensheild. Neither has ever travelled far, nor ever seen the fabled Dwarf City of Erebor. For both, the journey to the Lonely Mountain represents adventure and excitement. Skilled fighters, both brothers set off on their adventure armed with the invincible courage of youth, neither being able to imagine the fate which lies before them.Next up are the brothers Bofur, Bombur, and Bifur:

Dizam, look at that fat Dwarf - I love how he is equipped with nothing but a ladle and stretchy pants! Bofur looks like your West Virginian cousin most likely to kidnap and throw you in a hole - demanding you put the "lotion on the skin." As for Bifur, well, he looks more like a crazed Tom Hanks from Castaway , so maybe "Wilson" the volleyball will finally get some work.
And the official bio for these guys:
Born and bred in the West, descendants of coal miners and iron workers, they have joined the Quest for the Lonely Mountain partly to seek their fortune and partly because they were told the beer was free.
Methinks this will be The Hangover trio of Middle Earth.
