And that is the full line-up of the LEGO The Hobbit sets! A wonderful selection for any Tolkien fan! My personal favorite is the #79003 Hobbit hole, and according to the reviews I have read, it is a favorite of everyone who had a chance to see it personally or build it already. If you can only buy one of the Hobbit sets, I would suggest this one. #79002 Attack of the Wargs is also very nice with a great selection of minifigures, a great looking tree and two Wargs! I’m not a big fan of the two smallest sets (#79000 & #79001), but the ones mentioned above and the largest ones (#79004 & #79010) are real winners! 😀
