Cryptozoic Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products have teamed up to create a new trading card collection based on The Hobbit Trilogy.
The first collection from the original and licensed cards and games developer will be The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The first product is slated for an early 2014 release.
The Middle-earth inspired cards will allow fans to collect their favourite moments from all three of the films directed by Peter Jackson.
Trading cards for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: There and Back Again will be released after each film.
Miranda Charsky, Cryptozoic’s trading card brand manger, said: "The Hobbit features a wealth of great characters, locations and adventures from Middle-earth.
"We’re very excited to work with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to bring fans of this timeless story something very special and authentic to these epic films."
