Thanks to a poster given away at Toys’R’Us we have a chance to take a first look at the LEGO The Hobbit sets scheduled to be released by the end of this year! Low quality images of the poster have been circulating in the past few days, but as you probably know, taking photos of posters is not easy due to the shiny finish. However Toys-N-Bricks forum member just2good was finally able to take some shots that are much better quality. (You can click on any of the pictures for a larger view.)
➡ #79000 LEGO The Hobbit – Riddles for the Ring: this is a smallish set with a cave, a small boat, Bilbo and Gollum, referring to the scene where Bilbo and Gollum plays a game of riddles with Bilbo’s last question being: “What have I got in my pocket?”
➡ #79001 LEGO The Hobbit – Escape from Mirkwood Spiders: another nice set with a couple of trees covered with spider-web, 2 spiders and 4 minifigures; Legolas, Tauriel, Fili and Kili.
➡ #79002 LEGO The Hobbit – Attack of the Wargs: a wonderful set with a great big tree, a couple of wargs (evil wolves) and five minifigures; two orcs, a warg-rider, Thorin and Bifur.
➡ #79003 LEGO The Hobbit – An Unexpected Gathering: this is the set we have seen before, with the dwarves gathering at the Shire. Six minifigs are included: Gandalf, Bilbo, Balin, Bofur, Bombur and Dwalin.
➡ #79004 LEGO The Hobbit – Barrel Escape: Bilbo and the dwarves get captured by the wood-elves who try to ascertain their mission. The party plans their escape in some wine-barrels. The wine-cellar looks great with lots of barrels and goblets full of
wine grape-juice (remember? LEGO doesn’t promote the drinking of alcohol!). There is also a prison, and weapon-racks with plenty of weapons; including a couple of those sweet elven blades. Five minifigures are included; Bilbo, Oin, Gloin and two elves.
➡ #79010 LEGO The Hobbit – The Goblin King Battle: this is the largest of the sets and is full of awesome details! The set also includes the Goblin King, plus 7 minifigures; Gandalf, Dori, Nori, Ori and three goblins.
➡ #3920 LEGO The Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey: the poster also includes this fun twist of the traditional memory-game, which is actually already available at the Online LEGO Shop. See here:
