- "I'm going on an adventure!"
- ―Bilbo in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Bilbo Baggins is a LEGO minifigure from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies sub-themes. He first appeared in July 2012 with the Comic-Con Exclusive Bilbo Baggins Giveaway, and has appeared 4 sets thus far after that, as well as a Target exclusive for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Blu-ray. He is the adoptive uncle of Frodo Baggins and also appears in LEGO The Lord of the Rings: The Video Game.
Bilbo Baggins was one of the most predictable, respectable, and unadventurous hobbits in the Shire. One day, Gandalf the Grey came to Bilbo's home, Bag End, and asked him to come on an adventure. Bilbo refused, but the next day, Gandalf returned with the 13 dwarves, and they forced Bilbo to come on the adventure. When the company had reached the Misty Mountains, and Bilbo was separated, he met Gollum and found The One Ring. Over the course of the adventure, Bilbo proved his usefulness. When he got back, he generously gave most of his treasure away, but he kept some of it, including the Ring, seeing as its power made him want to keep it close. He was forced to give it up to his nephew Frodo during his 111th birthday party, (Gandalf had discovered its evil power). The Ring Quest then took place. Afterwards, Bilbo went to live with Elrond in Rivendell before leaving Middle-earth on the last boat to the Grey Havens with the rest of the elves.
- He has a double sided face, with one side showing a worried side.
- Just like his relative Frodo Baggins, Bilbo has a Regular version and a Shire version.
- In LEGO The Lord of the Rings: The Video Game, the vest in his young variant is orange and his coat is brown. But in The Fellowship of the Ring, the coat and vest are black and red respectively.
- The Target exclusive of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Blu-ray featured the outfit Bilbo wore in the trailer and extended edition of the film.
- His old variation in LEGO The Hobbit: The Video Game is an older version of young Bilbo's Hobbit variant.
- The Lake-town variant in LEGO The Hobbit: The Video Game uses Bard's torso in in blue and has tan legs unlike the movies and The Lonely Mountain set where Bilbo had dark brown legs and wore a blue robe.
- Bilbo has the most variations of all Middle-Earth minifigures.
- Although Bilbo held an acorn in the end credits to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the caricature is actually the real-life photo of Martin Freeman holding his very own LEGO Bilbo Baggins minifigure that was taken on the then-last day of filming prior to the last minute switch of making two Hobbit films into three.
- Bilbo was portrayed in all three live action Hobbit films by Martin Freeman who also played Everett K. Ross in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
- In the animated Hobbit film and the animated Return of the King film, he was voiced by the late Orson Bean, who also voiced Frodo Baggins in the animated Return of the King film.
