There is no evidence of whether or not that is "correct." That is an artists interpretation of the character, so having a lot of armor cannot be correct or incorrect.

Dol Amroth is a region in western Gondor.

He has blonde hair in the picture. Which I am sure is wrong. As a Wood Elf, Legolas should have brown hair.

Again, that is just interpretation. You cannot be "wrong" or "right" in an interpretation of a character that is never fully described...

Heck, we don't even know how OLD Legolas is! I was discussing this just the night before last with someone, Legolas is one of the characters from the Fellowship that the least is said about actually, where history, lineage, age and appearence are concerned...

True that not much said about him but i never really thought he wore that much armour. Does anyone know who his mother was/is?

Just finished re-reading TT (again). Both Legolas and Aragorn were given armor by Theoden, before they all ride off to Helm's Deep. I can't remember exactly what they ended up wearing, if someone has the book handy they may find the right passage. Also Gimli takes a shield that belonged to Theoden when he was a boy.

I thought I read somewhere how old Legolas was, but I can't find it now. The picture looks nice, but I have never imagined Legolas as having so much armour. Being a wood-elf I thought he would very much look like how he does in the film: just in green clothes with only his bow as a weapon (which is enough fo him of course). I suppose so much armour would be very uncomfortable if you're not used to wearing it.

I downloaded that picture from Kazaa..
Each time I try to open it, my comp freezes. :mad:
I dunno, I rather like that one, it's just an interpretation of what Legolas might look like.

the producers of te movie didnt wantto hinder the look of elves which are supposed to be elegant and gracefull. Thats why they didnt have legolas wearing any armor. or any elf for that matter.
