The dwarf roll-out from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit continues, as today we get our first look at the dwarves Bofur (James Nesbitt), Bombur (Stephen Hunter), and Bifur (William Kircher). This latest image comes on the heels of Jackson unveiling his Hobbit dwarves piecemeal, starting with Nori, Dori, and Ori, then Oin and Gloin, and yesterday we were introduced to Fili and Kili. While all the previous sets have been brothers, Bifur is simply Bofur and Bombur’s cousin, so naturally he’s an outcast marked by a severe lack of affection.

Hit the jump to see Bofur, Bombur, and Bifur, and learn a little about their background. The Hobbit stars Martin Freeman, Ian McKellan, Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, Christopher Lee and Andy Serkis. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be released on December 14, 2012.  The Hobbit: There and Back Again will hit theaters on December 13, 2013.  Both movies will be in 3D.

Here’s the image (via IGN):

Here’s the skinny on Bofur, Bombur, and Bifur:

While most of the Company of Thorin Oakensheild is related to the royal and noble line of Durin, Bofur, his brother Bombur and their cousin Bifur most definitely are … not. 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.

    The comic relief, huh?

    Tee hee hee!

    But seriously, while I can nit pick every singe design, it’ll be good to see them all together. Cause when you think about it, there’s 13 bloody dwarfs. It’s going to be hard enough recognising each one let alone remembering their name, but I think they’ve been able to strike a good difference between each group, enough to subconsciously go “right, that’s one of the Bombors or Bifors – and that’s the young one there”

    Nice spoil

    • paul

      there is no real spoil here. There is no plot info. None of the info here is in anyway significant to the story even indirectly.

  • MagicWand

    Thanks for the spoiler. Dumb Ass. Not everyone has read the book!

    • paul

      whatever

  • Kori

    Wow, thanks asshole.

  • sense 11

    Thanks for commenting on the spoiler, i avoided reading it, what a dick.

    Designs are amazing, Peter Jackson is crafting a masterpiece.

  • Adam Chitwood

    What spoiler is everyone referring to? I honestly never meant to spoil anything, and can’t even figure out what everyone is talking about. I’d be more than happy to change or remove it.

  • tarek

    I suspect that people here have smoked the carpet. Of what spoilers are you talking about ? Hello! ^^

    • Excpird

      They think that you talking about the history of the Dwarfs is a spoiler. Even though a) it said hit the jump to learn about the history of the dwarfs and b) chances are that wont even be touched on in the movie, and if I remember it wasn’t really talked about much in the book either.

  • Conoro

    So that leaves Balin and Thorin.

    People may complain about the Fili/Kili picture, but one of them had to shave his beard off at one point in the story, which explains the scruff.

    • totomesu

      we’re also still missing dwalin ;) guess, he will be revealed alomgside with balin

  • Come on Son!!!

    You clowns that are saying “Thanks for the spoilers” go kill yourselves nerds.

    • MagicWand

      Go forth & multiply…

      For anyone else wondering, the original spoiler comment has since been removed on the thread above.

  • Koroko

    The spoiler comment was removed, Adam, none of us were complaining about the article. :)

    • Adam Chitwood

      Got it. Steve must have taken it down. Thanks for the clarification! Just wanted to make sure I didn’t accidentally reveal anything.
