Lego 79002 Hobbits – Attack of the Wargs

The attack of the Wargs is one of the new unexpected Journey sets that will be released in the beginning of 2013. With about four hundred pieces, it has five mini-figures that are Yazneg, two Orcs, Bifur, Thorin Oakenshield (I must say that they are all rather well detailed and with great tools) and two Wargs (white and grey), a big tree and a catapult.

The set intends to recreate a scene where Bifur and thorin escaped from the mountains and suddenly faced the terrible Yazneg with its Wargs and the two Orcs. At that point they have no other option than climbing high to the big tree. This one is rather tall and it is made with brown pieces and green branches.

The cave is all made with grey pieces, giving it a scary and mysterious look.  Continue reading

Lego 79003 Hobbits – An Unexpected Gathering

The Unexpected Gathering was the first known set of this new theme and it is basically the Bilbo Baggins hobbit hole, a small but very cozy house with plenty of nice details. The set recreates the scene where Thorin and Galdalf try to convince Baggins to join the fellowship to recover the lost mountain from Smaug.

The set, besides the nice building has also six great mini-figures that are Bilbo Baggins, Balin, Bombur and Bofur, Dwalin and the great Gandalf. Bag End is a nice Green House with a small garden at the front with plenty of nice vegetables. These guys have a good appetite for sure not only for the nice carrots but mostly because of what’s inside the house.

Outside there is also a nice bench, next to the main door,
