I don't have my LotR books with me, but can anyone remind me what chapter it was when Gimli got his reassignment surgery?

That is not the "Fellowship" in that picture so I am betting that is not Gimli

Yeah, but while all the others are generic enough, those two "fellows" front and center sure look a lot like Bilbo and Gandalf. Check out their weapons!

Not complaining, though. This is an awesome piece.

Agreed, but the others clearly are not. The hobbit is fairly generic, except it's weapon certainly is reminiscent of Sting.

Well, that is probably Gandalf. Same as with the cover for Adventures in Middle-Earth. Maybe something in their deal to use the IP requires Gandalf to be illustrated on some of the covers.

There are no dwarf-women. Dwarves just spring out of the ground.
You haven't read Appendix A to the Lord of the Rings, have you?

There are dwarven women, but they are rare and stay underground.

I agree there shouldn't be a dwarven woman adventurer on the cover, since that would constitute a breach of canon to rival the ridiculous elven-dwarven romance in the Hobbit movies.
 
Gandalf was in Middle Earth for about 2,000 years... we can assume that he was part of a lot of different adventuring parties during that time. Certainly at least one of them included both a hobbit with a magic sword AND a dwarven woman? :)

This is a great cover, but I like the 1st edition cover better. Has the misty Middle Earth feel of the novels. This one feels like it's appealing more to the movies.

I really enjoyed the old school MERP covers, great stuff! New looks good, not as good to me but still grabs the eye to look further.
 
Surprised Cubicle 7 went with the all-gray Gandalf, as that is a signature of the New Line conception of Gandalf, versus the "bookverse" blue-hatted, silver-scarved Gandalf. Anyway, looks good.

Reasonable comment.

I suppose today, more people have seen the movies than read the books.
