I know, old news, but still, look at them. Those are tough looking serious bizness fellas. (ps check out that blog the pic came from for cool info/pics on them) I know peter wanted them to have their own unique look, but consider this; -All the elves look the damn same. There aren't drastically different looking elves, nor are there drastically different looking rohan guys (aside from grima) and we could tell them apart. -In the book, they are described similarly, even Gimli during LOTRTTT comments how dwarf WOMEN look like Dwarf men. -During the council scene in LOTR, the other dwarves also ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE DWARVES. OK, beating a dead horse here. I still maintain this to be a bad decision. Making the 12 unique, ok, but they look nothing like the pre-established dwarves. They made gimli stand out from the rest of the other dwarves, couldn't they continue like that? Sorry, I'm done. The new ones suck and just look like shrunken men.
