This is a bit of an odd debut for Smaug's full body, but the whole dragon enchilada finally makes an appearance in the form of a wrap on an Air New Zealand plane.
It's not an ideal way to see the fearsome dragon's complete body for the first time (we've seen plenty of glimpses in the trailers), but it does give us a rough idea of the design we'll be seeing in the movies.
First proper full-length image of Smaug comes via this, er, plane. pic.twitter.com/qB9bpojcge— Nick de Semlyen (@NickdeSemlyen) December 1, 2013
