Glóin is a The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey minifigure. He was released on November 27th, 2012.


Glóin, son of Gróin, was one of the twelve companions of Thorin Oakenshield and Bilbo Baggins on the Quest of Erebor. He was a descendant of Durin the Deathless, and brother of Óin. Glóin and his son Gimli were sent to Rivendell as an embassy from Dáin II to bring news of Erebor, Moria, and what they knew of Sauron's plans; they arrived in time to attend the Council of Elrond. The name Gloin is found in the Völuspá. He was a playable hero in the Dwarven Faction in the Electronic Arts Real-Time Strategy game The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II, and specialized in attacks that would either destroy or disable the opponents' buildings.

He is portrayed by Peter Hambleton in Peter Jackson's adaptation of The Hobbit and by John Rhys-Davies in a brief, uncredited cameo in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.


The Gloin minifigure has a unique orange hair/beard piece, a unique red torso with a large belt printed on it, and brown short legs. He comes with the same axes as Gimli.

Official DescriptionEdit

(Do not modify)

Of all the members in The Company of Dwarves who set out on the Quest to The Lonely Mountain, Gloin is the most outspoken and opinionated. He is not afraid to challenge authority. He has a tendency to be quick-tempered, but he is also strong, brave and loyal. Gloin is one of the only married Dwarves in the Company (there being a shortage of female Dwarves in general). His wife is an acclaimed beauty with a particularly fine beard. Gloin is also the proud father of a young son, Gimli, who will later grow up to become part of the famous Fellowship of the Ring.
