WizKids plans to release a collectible HeroClix set based on the upcoming Hobbit movie in October.  The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey HeroClix set will feature more than 30 different figures.  It will be fully compatible with the HeroClix: Lord of the Rings and other HeroClix products.  Characters from the new film will make up the set, including a young Bilbo Baggins, the dwarf king Thorin Oakenshield, and the wizard Gandalf the Grey.
The game will be packaged for the core hobby market as a seven-figure Campaign Starter, a 24-piece countertop booster display, and a Marquee Figure.  It will also be released into the mass market with a “Mini Game” and gravity feed displays.

WizKids is also planning a board game for October release based on the film (see "T'he Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' Board Game").
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens December 14th (see "'The Hobbit' Movies Wrap").
