    Comments about 2014 New Zealand The Hobbit Desolation of Smaug (Gold Plated):

    I bought this product as a Christmas present for my father, a MAJOR Tolkien fanatic. Needless to say, anything with Smaug on it is of interest to him, however he and I both thought that the opposite side was a bit of a let down. I would have liked to see "The Hobbit" on the back or at least something relevant to the main reason for purchase. Other than that, I have no complaints. It came in a fantastic case and looked even better than the picture (on the Smaug side)
