Goblin King is a minifigure in the The Hobbit Unexpected Journey line, that was released in November, 2012.
The Great Goblin was an Orc leader who lived in the Misty Mountains during the Third Age, as recounted in The Hobbit. His followers captured Thorin Oakenshield, Bilbo Baggins and company during the Quest of Erebor, the Lonely Mountain, and took them to their underground stronghold, Goblin Town. When he found the group was carrying an Elf-made blade which had killed many Goblins he gave orders for them to be imprisoned and tortured and tried to attack Thorin, but was slain by Gandalf. His death incites the Goblins to go after the company.
The Great Goblin is motion-captured by Barry Humphries in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
