    As I’ve remarked elsewhere, what a waste that it never went into production! It seems odd to take a figure up to this stage and then never market it. Presumably there was a reason, and hopefully a good one, but I can’t imagine what it might have been.

    What I can see is that the pose of the figure was not changed at all. With the M162 mounted Dwarf there seem to be just the head being changed, as it clearly reveils a Dwarf with his beard and not a Hobbit with curly hair. With the M 162 there’s a hood of his cape covering most of his hair. There might be some more minor changes in detail, but I can only witness one (as I cannot see the back of the figure). – What I see is, that there’s no such bag next to his right hand in which he carries the reigns (in front of his left knee).
    Well, that’s all I can see comparing Mornedhel’s picture with the M162.

    Sorry, there are more slight details being different concerning all the package the pony carries.

    Master Ent, legs have also new positions so it is not as [mith]M60[/mith] or [mith]M162[/mith] but a new pony.
    I also wonder in what year it has been sculpted. Anything written under its base ?

    well as far as I can see, it seems that the picture from Mornedhel depicts a horse, not a poney… (i am no expert, but when I see the neck and head , it looks more of a horse than a poney)

    which means the hobbit could be Bullroarer Took…?

    Possibly, but if so I would have expected him to be carrying a club.

    I will not go for Bullroarer as this hobbit is not really tall.

    “Bullroarer, who was so huge (for a hobbit) that he could ride a horse.”

    And doesn’t carry a club, which is the famous weapon he is known for.

    Master Gildor in dicussion we have on November last year I mentionned this mounted hobbit.

    ah yes, true enough! did not “link” this one with the one from your email :)

    as for the dol guldur and wilderlands series, well, we are aware of them though we have never seen them…

    . . but isn´t the right time to release these series ?! Maybe somebody should tell the people in Ireland, that we are inside the “Hobbit-years” . . .

    That pony rider is brilliant.

    Michael O’Brien reported the Hobbit movie cause more issues than benefits as Mithril dosen’t fit Peter Jackson interpretation of Middle-Earth.
    People looking for Hobbit miniatures expect to find out the movie characters (physical point of view) as most of them never read the book.

    And these people will find their minis at GW without doubt, not caring about the book but only for the movie depictions.

    Personally, I find some designs from the PJ movies superior to Mithril’s interpretations. In most cases (especially the “human” types in a wider sense) I judge Mithril closer to the mark though.

    by the way I have the history of this figurine… it was meant to be for a project of Hobbit characters mounted (dwarves on horses and hobbit on poney) but this project never came to fruition. Chris had made Bilbo on a horse and when sculpted he noted he had made a mistake, making the poney… too big, actually a big horse which was not canon at all and unfitting so the project was put aside.
