If you’re planning on picking up the extended edition of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey later this year, you’ll have a few options.  Obviously there’s the standard 2D Blu-ray and then the 3D Blu-ray, but Amazon has unveiled a package for the disc that includes both the 2D and 3D versions of the film as well as an exclusive character statue by Weta.  The statue, titled “Riddles in the Dark,” portrays Bilbo and Gollum as seen in the film and was sculpted by Gary Hunt from the Weta Workshop.  It stands at 8” wide, 5.25” deep, and 7” tall.  Of course, the set also comes with the Hobbit extended Blu-ray, which includes 13 minutes of additional footage and 9 hours of behind-the-scenes documentary footage.

Hit the jump to take a look at this exclusive figurine.  The special edition package will run you $69.99 and is currently available for pre-order.  Keep in mind, if the price is lowered at any point before release, Amazon will charge you the lower price.  The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Extended Edition will be released on November 5th.

If you don’t feel like owning the collectible, Amazon has a few other versions on Blu-ray:
