16 Hobbit Character Posters Debut At Comic Con

Tucked in a back corner of the exhibit hall at San Diego Comic Con was a big surprise for fans of Middle Earth. Lentricular, a.k.a. 3D posters, were on display for all the major characters in the upcoming The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, from returning faces like Cate Blanchett's Galadriel and Ian McKellen's Gandalf the Grey to newcomers like the full assortment of dwarves and, of course, Martin Freeman's Bilbo Baggins.

You can take a look at all 16 of the posters below. Of course, you're not going to get the full 3D effect, and there's some unavoidable glare thanks to their placement on the exhibit floor, but it's worth it to get our first real, up-close, one-on-one look at many of the brand-new characters who will populate the film.
