Azog is a minifigure that was first released in December 2013 appearing in the The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug subtheme. Azog minifigures were released early at the 2013 San Diego ComicCon expo, given away to random visitors of the convention. He appeared in physically 79014 Dol Guldur Battle and a Comic-Con giveaway. Azog is also known as "The Pale Orc".
Azog has light skin, almost pale, with one hand brown and the other with a unique, claw-like prosthetic hand. He has the similar legs to the Mordor Orcs, only a small difference in it being more tattered, a studded belt, and the skin colour that is noted.
Azog has a unique headpiece, showing blue eyes, scars all over his face, small, pointed ears, and a malicious smile. A nose has been moulded into it for detail.
Azog's The Battle of Five Armies variant is almost identical to his original variant, but features a different facial expression depicting him yelling as opposed to smiling.
Azog the Defiler was a Gundabad orc chieftain. He fought the dwarves of Moria and killed Thrór, the grandfather of Thorin Oakenshield. Thorin then cut Azog's arm off and the latter retreated. Years later he returned with a metal claw replacing his missing arm and swore to take revenge on Thorin with an Orc pack following him. When Yazneg, the leader of the pack came back to Weathertop where Azog was camping, after a failed attempt of capturing the dwarves, Azog was angered and threw Yazneg to the Wargs. After the company of dwarves escaped Goblin Town, they were found by Azog and his pack of Orcs and Azog attempted to kill Thorin. When one of Azog's Orcs was preparing to cut Thorin's head off, Bilbo Baggins proved courage and saved the latter. Afterwards, the Great Eagles came and killed most of the Wargs and Orcs of the pack, and saved Thorin's Company, leaving Azog angrier than ever. Later Azog was called to Dol Guldur by the Necromancer who commanded that Azog would be the leader of the army of Orcs and Wargs, therefore Azog gave Bolg, his son, the task of chasing the dwarves. When Gandalf went to Dol Guldur, Azog and his legion attacked him and imprisoned him in a cage after the Necromancer defeated the wizard.
