Very exciting! [In reply to] Can't Post

I love that we are getting to see all of these. I'll be picking them up as soon as they are available. I do believe that even though this is just a Lego set, we can expect to see Tauriel and Legolas rescuing the Dwarves from the Spiders in the second movie and possibly just dragging them to Thranduil's Hall in their spider wrappings. I can see it working from a movie perspective. My worry is that it will take away from Bilbo's heroism in the scene. I hope he is still a major part of driving away the spiders even if the Elves show up at the end for a cool action scene and snatch the Dwarves. It appears they put a note on the box that this a "preview" set which seems to be how they are dealing with releasing these sets that were originally for movie 1. Now that the scene won't be until movie 2, they are still going to release it, but call it a special trilogy preview set as it features a scene we aren't going to witness right away.

We still have no Lego versions for some of the Dwarves. Notably, Oin and Gloin. I feel like they are going to be the two least featured Dwarves based on images and products we've seen so far. I kind of assumed Gloin was going to get some of Gimli's personality for the films, so we'll see if that happens, but I'm wondering if Oin and Gloin are just going to be basic, "boring", Dwarves (though I don't believe in boring Dwarves) and everyone else is going to feature entertaining eccentricities.

I'm very excited to see what appears to be blue fire on the tree in the Warg Attack set, but sad to see no Gandalf. Riddles features Gollum's boat which leads me to believe the boat will be in the movie...a plus that I thought they might cut out. Goblin town looks like it's going to be the biggest set. I'm going to have fun building that one. It looks like it has several moving pieces which always make lego sets fun.

I can't wait! Sorry bank account.
