Ever since I was a wee little lad and I read the The Hobbit for the first time, Bombur has always been my favorite dwarf in the Company of Thorin.
Maybe it`s because I can relate to him due to physical errrm qualities, or the fact he was, well, just not a warrior at all, I don`t know, but I was excited to see how he turned out in the movie trilogy.
The breaking of the gates of Erebor is by far my favorite moment in the whole series of films, with at the moment of desperation, Bombur blowing a mighty horn and the bell crashes away the barricades. It visually, and epically in music, struck me.
I think it worked out rather okay, as there isn`t a `bend horn` in Lego to wrap all around his girth, so I had to create a mouthpiece, but it does represent the scene for me.
Now to one day build the actual smashing of the barricades ;-)
Cutting off the Retreat!
