GOBBER! And he's got a dragon!
wow that is awesomebtw I am 2nd
It's a blobfish!
Anyone notice how much his 'arm' looks like a gronkle tail? lol
is the last poster valka? is it stoick? is it eret? LOL NO its gobber with a weird frog dragon!!
It's a blobfish.
Anyone else think that Hiccup may have modified his arm? Those joints look very Hiccup-y
The dragon looks so weird! XD
What the actual.. XD
XD Thinking the same thing, they're a perfect match!
Its so weird XD I wish he had a Boneknapper though..
With seemingly only one character poster remaining, I'm a bit surprised that it's Gobber. It's cool that we get to see his strange dragon though. I have no idea what that thing is supposed to be.
Same, that dragon was so awesome! :D
Gobber Finally got one :3
I was thinking the same XD! I can't wait to find out what it is!
I wonder what happened to the group of them he led back to Berk at the end of the short. I liked their design too.
Wish he would've had the boneknapper, but I like this dragon. Looks so...I dunno! Perfect match! I was hoping they'd do a Gobber poster for some reason...
Same! There are so many new dragons, its gonna be hard to keep count! XD
I bet it was modeled from this. xD
Just noticed it has tiny little wings!
Haha xD Grump. I like it. When I first saw this I was like "Whuttt? O_O"
I SAW THAT! How is it gonna fly?
Maybe he is adding changes to all prosthesis so it's easier for all of the Amputees on Berk. =3
Maybe he has larger wings out of shot?
Like a Gronkle? This dragon looks like a modified version of a Gronkle, and its pretty awesome! :D
Kinda looks related to the gronkle... what do you guys think?
It does look pretty awesome. Although it doesn't look like it's the most intelligent dragon...XD
That's possible. Or maybe it's a flightless dragon?
awesomei love grump he looks so coolit looks kind like a rumblehorn
I was thinking the same thing! It really looks like a dumb dragon XD
Anyone also notice the thing on Gobbers head? It looks like some kind of visor or something.
the wings are his ears just like the gronkle
If that thing can actually fly.... I will be sort of disappointed. XD
there is a pic
XD It would be pretty funny to have Gobber with the only flightless dragon XD
I can hear him already.. XD "Don't let em get ya down Grump. You are good at other things" XD
it will be able to fly those are just his ears like the gronckle
You sure? XD
XDDD ''Like, eating! You can eat much better than any of the other dragons!'' *Grump purrs very weirdly and licks Gobber*
yea the saddle u can see is up at the top the wings would probably be under it
That dragon looks dope doped.
What do you think Gobber named his Dragon?
My parents just brought these back from Sweden! (The mast has snapped off. If anyone knows how to fix metal things I'd appreciate the help)
It says in the description; Grump.
Gobber's dragon looks kind of like a toad.
Grump can fly as shown in the trailer.
Going by his name I'm guessing he's a grumpy old git (on top of being dumb)
surprised we got a gobber poster before a stoick or valka one
Technically, we got the Valka poster already! :D
I feel this one was made to show off the dragon, not the character (unlike the others).
So, we got a Gobber poster, posters of the gang, and a poster of Valka. But no Stoick, hmm... I have a feeling its gonna happen.. If you know what I mean. I won't mention it though, don't want to ruin other people's day.
YAY! I got it right, there was a new post.
That's so cool! I want them. :D
I know.... It's sad...
Exactly what I thought.
It is :( The thing that will kill me the most is how Hiccup would react if it did happen..
Umm guys? I can't find it's ears.... I can't see those tiny wing things as ears.
I see where you're going with this, and it's possible. On the flip side, Stoick's new dragon Skullcrusher seems to be popping up quite frequently in the toy lines. My gut still says that Valka will be the one who dies if anyone does. She just seems like a tragic character.
I know, like in the episode Frozen, the feelings you get from Hiccup and Gobber. :'(
Oh man, I was on the verge of tears at that scene, and he wasn't even near dying!
Aye. Killing off an established character like Stoick would be hard. Killing off a new charactrr woukd be much easier, just like a redshirt!
I know, I was watching the episode on my laptop, and my friend came in and I was literally crying. It was really embarassing.
Valka has a chance of dying also, it would make sense. It would have to leave Hiccup to take care of all of Valka's rescued dragons, and possibly Drago, if he is not yet dealed with before Valka's death (sounds like I know she will die, just reminding you its just a theory)
XD But nothing beats how much I cried at the end of Bing! Bam! Boom! I sobbed like a baby for at least half an hour, I was really depressed after that episode..
This is just a proof of how our blacksmiths becomes a great tourist attraction xD
:/ I hope that you want Game of Thrones one day...
I guess the other side of that argument is that the death of an established character could have more emotional impact. A case can be made for both if it's done right. It's not necessarily that I'm itching to see somebody die in this movie, but I think it may almost be necessary in order to keep the story believable. If there's really going to be the huge battle with the very fate of the tribe hanging in the balance, it almost feels like it would be artificially happy for everyone to come out alive.
And why is that?
but not in a high rez one like gobbers and the other ridersb
Gah, everyone is talking about it! And I can't watch it.... *screams*
Can't is a strong word in my world...
Dreamworks doesn't usually do 'happily ever after' endings in their movies (or thats what I know of). I'm sure they won't risk it for one of their most important films of this year.
I'm not even keeping it in, I want someone to die in HTTYD 2! Like you said, it will make it so much more believable, and it will prove that this is no 2 year old movie. That children, teens, and adults can enjoy this movie.
No problem here!
Gobber with his Dragon Grump... wow... xDWell. But Now I'M off.. Good Night everyone!
I'd say it's definitely a Boulder class dragons, because of the big-bully appearance.No way it can fly with the little wing things on the junction of it's neck, or it's head. Hard to tell. I would love to know what name they gave this species!"Grump"... He looks more like a happy and very lazy old dragon to me xD
just doesn't do it justice for me i guess...
Agreed, would be so much better to get it official like the other posters..
where did it come from anyway?
Apparently those are ears.
AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!! GOBBER!!!! LOOK AT ALL THAT FACIAL HAIR AND - ACK! HE HAS HIS OWN DRAGON!!!! oh my days.oh my days.ooooooh my days. Someone needs to help me before I die trying to wait for this film to eventually come out. Heart attack. Heart attack. Heart attack -.-
Just checked the commenters board and this is what I saw....Calm down Nightshade!
I'm actually worried it's going to be (warning: highly speculative thought here....) Toothless. Dreamworks' said they were taking Hiccup and Toothless' friendship to a new level. I can't think of any other way to make their relationship deeper. I hope that won't happen.P.S. Toothless is 20 in dragon years? I don't want to have to see Hiccup deal with Toothless' death....It'd be nice if dragons lived longer than what it sounds like they do.
Night darling! (nothin personal ; ) I am calling everyone that, dw)
The official HTTYD page on Facebook :)
D: Calm down! It won't be long before you reach the very top of the commenters board if you go crazy like that! That's a good thing.
Actually I thought Grump looks like a REALLY big salamander. With wings.
Ok, thats it, Im changing my picture.
According to Kris0ten on Tumblr, Astrid supposedly calls Hiccup ''Babe'' In the final trailer :'D *dies*
No! really?!? ahahahaha XD oh my days thats so cute! -.- jealous much
Yes! and I am sorry, but I genuinely cant calm down!!! Also nice pic btw
>.< YES! YAY YAY YAY!
I prefer this one. Keep it.
Who is that in this picture? Is that me? XDD
No one is going for 100?
Nice! Huh... his dragon looks sort of like a Gronckle... but if it is a Gronckle it must certainly have very different facial structure!Gobber looks great, and it's neat to see that he'll have a tamed dragon with a bit of personality!
I changed it. And I'll change it back cause I don't like my old one.
GOBBER!!! :D :D :D AND WHAT EVER A GRUMP IS! :D :D XD
The main way of attaching metal effectively is welding, but it could damage the ship depending on the material. Alternatively, if you have the tools and the confidence, you could drill and tap a hole through both parts and bolt them together. Even if the mast isn't attached, it's still a beautiful ship.
Who's on right 'bout now?
I like to call those 'The Greats'
not me.... OK, now I'm on
The ship is quite small. I could try the hole but it's a small ship so would be very difficult. And I have no way in welding.Thanks for the tips!
WHO GOT 100?!
to bad it's wrong though, they all have more comments by now
XD yay me!
This is so cool! Gobber looks awesome! His dragon looks like a sloth.
This is my 2000th comment XD
What in sanity's name is Danke??
German for Thanks
dreamworks is killing to many people.
... not Nightshade!
Anyone else notice, Gobber's bottom middle right tooth is not fake like it should be? I'm I the only one noticing this or am I just crazy?
It's so cool that Gobber's going to get his own dragon. It looks cute! Does anyone else think there's going to be another one.
Am I the top 'great' then? XD
No, it looks fake. It might be the lighting.
Is the boneknapper on Dragonpedia?
Nah. Still looks metal to me. Might be a bit smaller though.
The legendary Ulfberht...
It more or less floats like a hot air balloon. Would you like to know the source of the heat?
As a fan of Shakespeare, I can't help but compare the Dragon trilogy to 1 Henry IV, 2 Henry IV, and Henry V. In the first play, Prince Hal must redeem himself in his father's eyes, and ultimately does so by winning an important battle. In the second play, his father dies, and Prince Hal becomes King Henry V, and formally rejects the rebellious lifestyle he lived with Falstaff. In the third play, he must prove himself a worthy leader by waging a long and difficult war. If Dragon 2 follows a similar structure to 2 Henry IV, then I think that Hiccup will become chief and reject Valka's rebellious lifestyle. (If the parallel is followed perfectly, then Valka would die of grief in the 3rd movie, but I think that's highly unlikely.) Obviously Dragon is not a Shakespeare play, but I couldn't ignore the parallel between them, since they're both coming-of-age trilogies.
on his neck? Well, he was flying in the trailer somehow (Or was that Fishlegs?)
Did you know that in HTTYD3, there's a character named Leiv Eriksson?
O.o quite an interesting thing you've pointed out. Can't vwait to see if it ends up like that!
Well, they learned from Game of Thrones.
XD Valar Morghulis!
So does Valka......Oedipus...
Random Question: Do you like the Random questions?(I am referring to the people who commented in the last post.)
Did you know that I defeated the Vikings as Mongols in Age of Empires 2?
Honestly, no. I find them annoying as the clog the page from the good posts. But that's just my opinion.
Random Question (well not really random, because this is HTTYD 2 related.):Who do you think will die in HTTYD 2?
I'm actually curious about the new mechanism on Gobber's arm, and what it might do or not do. Also Gobber I like the new helmet. :)
I'd like to call them... the people who use the grapevine for long conversations that aren't always related to the subject matter, and that also involve a lot of saying "hi" and other short sentences. However... now that I look at the list some of you do contribute a good deal of substantive stuff.I suppose it's just me feeling a bit peeved that the grapevine has turned into more of a social forum than a blog devoted to talking specifically about the above posts in depth. Oh well. I suppose if those who are doing are enjoying it it is fine, but I do feel that it kinda clogs the page and makes me hesitant to comment because I don't much feel like responding to half a dozen "hi's"...
I feel like Gobber, actually. =/ I dunno...maybe Valka...
XD, I didn't realize that He had a new helmet!
Could be could be... -_-
I've seen hints at Cloudjumper, but I soooooo hope that that doesn't happen!
I'm pretty sure it is a supporting brace. People get these even if they have a bad leg (not necessarily a prosthetic). It helps them support weight and have better control. SInce Gobber is older, perhaps this gives him a little extra leverage on his massive prosthetic attachments.
Actually after looking at it closer you can see the old helmet underneath that new part which I'm now assuming is a face plate. Possibly? Not sure but you can definitely see the helmet under it.
In the trailer it looks like he has some sort of vizor, so yes, I think it's a face plate attached to his old helmet.
I have a question. How has Dragons inspired you?
Go to my blog, read about two pages, and you'll get the gist...and that gist is that I cannot even possibly begin to explain all the ways it has been inspiring! I've written pages and pages and still can't quite cover everything!
Oh, that's deep.
With the angle were given I can't really see how it is a support brace since it seems to not really be attached there's the rope but it doesn't seem to loop around it either. It beats any explanation I've got though so I'll go with it till we get more. :)
I think Gobber is too popular to be killed.
How many engineers/scientists do we have here?
Well then. Lets hope the Mongols don't pop up in the trilogy and that they're not lead by you! XD
The rod with the ball on the end looks like the handle on a drill press, but preliminary looks can be deceiving.
How has it inspired you? Has it made you want to go into the animation business? Has it made you want to become a better writer?
I think it attaches by a big leather strap up on his arm and then bends at the elbow, so perhaps it takes strain off of that particular joint by insuring that it doesn't bear to much weight or get twisted out of position... Really, I'm just guessing!
Indeed, I wonder if it has the bumble bee wings like a Gronckle?
My heart just skipped a beat :')
What about people with machine shop experience?
For me, Dragons has inspired me to become a better writer and artist.
Yea you beat me to it before I got my edit in. :P I agree it seems that it might depend more on his shoulder bearing the weight instead of his elbow like before.
I actually agree with you the most part. I feel like I rarely comment now because of the amount of stupid comments (I.e. the hundreds of Hi's, the people talking to themselves, the post number wars etc etc.).I admit I used to do this from time to time but I never do it now, because I've finally realised how annoying it can be! Anyway I'm not going to name fingers or pojnt names, but to those of you who do it, ir would be greatly appreciated if you at least turned it down a notch (or 10).
Yupyup and yup
Put that to the Titanic song.
new valka poster!
And. I'm seeing the new trailer on Saturday *dies of shipping happiness*
