To celebrate the final film in Sir Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy – The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, New Zealand post issued a new range of personalised stamps.
These personalised stamps were made especially for the final film in Sir Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy – The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
Featuring the very distinctive and hairy characteristics of the Company of Dwarves from this epic film, you could set off on your own ‘unexpected journey’ and transform yourself into one of your favourite Dwarves.
The characters available included the eclectic group of Dwarves that make up the Company of Thorin Oakenshield, including Thorin, Fili, Kili, Balin, Dwalin, Oin, Gloin, Ori, Dori, Nori, Bifur, Bofur and Bombur. Using your digital image in our online photo editor, you could morph yourself into the Dwarf of your choice. A sheet of 20 stamps made a great gift for any Middle-earth fan or as a keepsake for yourself.
