Hobbit release gets its very own 3D glasses. No, really.

Finally a cash-in that even George Lucas would be loathe to do. Probably.

On 14th December cinemas all over the land will be breathing a sigh of relief as the Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey’s 3D release will have their very own specially designed glasses as seen in the pic above.

Available to buy before the movie, no one has announced a price but these are quite a good idea and will probably will one of the fastest growing collectibles.
However, as a man that has to wear glasses, I pray there is a 2D version as these 3D things are so uncomfortable to wear especially when Jackson’s movies are always about three hours long.

When will someone design a pair that fits over a person’s existing eye wear? Anyone? 25% goes to me if you do for coming up with the idea.

Husband, dad and Ireland's hardest working author, Owen Quinn is currently knee deep in The Time Warriors, arguably the biggest sci-fi epic ever to come out of Ireland. He has an unhealthy interest in Doctor Who, classic TV and Star Wars, he also hangs around with the Emerald Garrison far toooo much. Is it any wonder he fits in at FTN so well? Find Owen at the
