The Hobbit 'Invisible Bilbo Baggins' exclusive action figure (An Unexpected Journey)
In The Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit in comfortable middle age at 50 years old, was hired as a burglar, despite his objections, by the wizard Gandalf the Grey and 13 Dwarves who were led by their king Thorin Oakenshield. The aim? A quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and its treasure from the formidable dragon named Smaug. This exclusive action figure represents an invisible Bilbo wearing the One Ring of Power.

J R R Tolkien studied and taught at Oxford University, and while there he started a writing group called The Inklings, which counted among its members C.S. Lewis and Owen Barfield (a little known fact is that here at OCC, we can be sometimes be spotted in 'The Eagle and Child', chosen and preferred pub of the Inklings, enjoying a pint of fine ale, sitting in the EXACT spot where Tolkien himself used to sit).
It was also at Oxford, while grading a paper, that he spontaneously wrote a short line about "a hobbit."
