“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” Blog App + Blu-ray Combo Pack GIVEAWAY!

*** This giveaway is now CLOSED. Congratulations to Tammy Cuevas for posting the winning comment #21, and thank you to everyone who participated! Please continue to enjoy the blog app. ***

Sunday’s Target circular advertises that you can get a FREE Bilbo Baggins LEGO figurine with the purchase of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Blu-ray + DVD), due to arrive in stores this Tuesday, March 19, 2013. Awesome!

For all you LEGO and Tolkien fans, you won’t want to miss a chance to snag this cool combo pack. But just so you know, we are also giving away one The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Blu-ray Combo Pack (sans the Bilbo Baggins figurine) to one lucky WDTB reader.

A Little Movie Background
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is the first of a trilogy of films by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson that adapts the epic adventures from The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. Follow the journey of Bilbo Baggins as he embarks on a quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of dwarves led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield. Together, their journey takes them through treacherous lands rife with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Sorcerers.
