Not only do we have some amazing new editions from EMPIRE, but you can still grab the remaining copies of The Hobbittribute magazine! A collaborative effort between Topix Media Lab and your friends here at, it covers everything you need to know about the Hobbit movies from a fan perspective. Side-bars and feature articles, contributed by our own volunteer staff, include interviews, a feature on book vs. the movie, articles on games and collectibles, a Middle-earth timeline, and much more! The magazine is also packed with colorful pictures of cast and crew members, locations, collectibles, gorgeous fan art and a few exclusives! One thing that makes this truly a collector’s edition is that there are only two ads in the entire magazine. If you enjoy your copy, please spread the news! This is the first time a not for profit website like has collaborated with a publisher to release such a publication nation-wide!
