Smaug is finally getting his Lego due.

The fiery and gold-hoarding dragon of The Hobbit fame will already be front and center at this year’s Comic-Con.

On Saturday, Warner Bros will be previewing in Hall H The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, in which the dragon plays a central role. Smaug is also getting the giant six-foot-plus Lego display treatment, which will be hunkered down on the San Diego Convention Center floor.
