Looking at these goblins remind me that Peter Jackson once directed "Braindead". They look disgusting! As for their LEGO representation, I wonder if there will be battle packs. Otherwise, they only occur at the Battle of the Five Armies at the end of the book, and having the LEGO great goblin ruling over <5 goblins seems somewhat pathetic.
The scribe is played by the actor who was the scale double for Frodo in the Lord of the Rings (I don't know his name and am terrible when it comes to actors, in general).
Regarding the orcs, I wouldn't be surprised if they were from Mordor, or at least the same breed (in fact, I'd be surprised if they hailed from elsewhere). It would tie in the storylines of the Hobbit and the Necromancer. Although, as you speculated earlier, Yazneg and co. could be allied with Bolg from the North. This could explore the revenge storyline somewhat but wouldn't contribute to the overall plot of the movie, as far as I can tell.
I was under the impression that the goblins of Goblinetown under the GG's rule were not connected to Bolg and his folk of the north. It's actually quite confusing, since in the book Bolg is the Lord of Moria, yet he looks nothing like the Moria orcs we saw in LOTR. Plus, Yazneg and his hunters look different from Bolg but they could be connected, which seems strange since in the book the Wargs and orcs chase the dwarves for revenge over the GG's death. The connections between all the different types of orcs is something I'm eagerly waiting to have explained more thoroughly in the Hobbit films, cause right now I'm confused.
Either way, I would like to see some more Goblintown goblins and more plain orcs. I've been looking at my LOTR armies, and I'm getting kinda sick of Uruks and how they look so militarized and cloned. Some more wild looking orcs are much needed to balance out the ranks of the forces of evil.
Also, I believe the actor's name is Kiran Shah, and he was the scale double for Frodo in LOTR and I think Bilbo for The Hobbit.
