New Yazneg information Can't Post

Warning, *Spoilers* within.

A lego poster has been released showing six new Hobbit sets.

Yazneg appears to be riding the albino warg in the Out of the Frying Pan scene.

Sorry if this is old news!

Other interesting things .... [In reply to] Can't Post

- The Mirkwood elves are drinking
- But the key is hung from the wall, and not on the guard
- The Dwarves appear to be in the same dungeon, in the same cellar, rather than separate across Thranduil's Halls
- Blue flames in the trees, and some goblin "contraptions" on the ground
- No lids and the barrels, and they seem to be rolled in

Thanks for posting this!

Could that be Azog? [In reply to] Can't Post

He looks to sport a different outfit and weapon than Yazneg, and could well be a Lego version of a "pale" Orc ALA Bolg! Supposedly, Azog rides an albino "she wolf" into battle.

I suppose it could be Yazneg, however...can't really tell from the video/pic.

But it seems that the Necromancer's forces will be amongst the attacking characters in Out of the Frying Pan...not sure what happens here...perhaps at least one the Goblins is loyal to Azog, and sends word when the Dwarves are captured crossing the mountains? Still, they'd have to get to the vicinity of Goblin-town pretty quickly from Dol Guldur. What, is the Necromancer sent a message via courier-bat? Tongue

3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!

Another sign it may be Azog... [In reply to] Can't Post

That big thing around its neck could work well in keeping on the head of something who's head was detached, say, in and/or near Moria?

It does? [In reply to] Can't Post

It seems like people on the LEGO site are assuming that it's Yazneg, but I looked at the videos/pics and didn't see the figure clearly labelled anywhere (it is on the poster, but the name isn't visible on the video).

EDIT: I had seen the listing above, but it's prefaced with this statement: "So, it appears the sets have these minifigures", making it appear to be an educated guess based on the video in question. Wink

My mistake :-) [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm pretty sure it's Yazneg though. He's still currently uploading pictures on to that forum. The OP in that forums says he can't read the name on the boxes from the poster, but they're pretty clear to me. We'll know soon enough. Wink

Hmmm...possibly. [In reply to] Can't Post

Doesn't really look like Yazneg IMO, while say, Thorin and Bifur look like Thorin and Bifur there.

Yazneg has a brown/grey outfit seemingly made of skin and bone, protruding scaled armor, and a unique scythe or something. The LEGO figure has a black outfit, a large neck piece and a bone axe. Granted, they are both bald however. Tongue

His scythe looks like it could be a bone, to me. [In reply to] Can't Post

And I think we're forgetting that is is *only* a LEGO mini-figure ... it's never going to look exactly like the film character. Wink Dwarves are quite easy to replicate into LEGO characters.

Having expanded it to full screen... [In reply to] Can't Post

The figure appears to be bare-chested ALA Yazneg...I tried to get the name from the poster, but it was illegible (thought it DOES appear to start with a "Y"). So yeah, leaning now towards it being a very shoddy adaptation of Yazneg.

Kind-of crappy that they've just recycled the Moria Orcs from LotR rather than doing proper Misty Mountain Goblins seen in TH for the set.

There are new goblin designs in the Great Goblin set :) [In reply to] Can't Post

One thing I've noticed, the elf in the barrel set is not Tauriel. I thought she was chief of the woodland guard. Have I got this wrong, or could this be a different/generic elf character?

nice find [In reply to] Can't Post

but some of this really worries me.

I'm pretty sure the guy on the warg is Yazneg, but what the hell is he supposed to do in the warg scene, he should be in Dol Guldur if we go after the description. Also: Does this mean that there will be other Dol Guldur forces in that scene? Looks like, after all there are also regular orcs in that set, not ones with the new design of the misty mountains Mad

But what is even worse: Legolas and Tauriel in the Spiders sceneCrazy
I may be reading a bit too much into that, but if they're really the ones to rescue the dwarves or even only help bilbo, instead of Bilbo doing it alone(which is one of the most important and most character developing moments of Bilbo) it would mess it all up completely

meh ... Unsure

Quite often the sets are based on a scene [In reply to] Can't Post

But might have different characters to those that appear in the scene, or based of a preliminary story/image which can change.

However, Legolas and Tauriel have have character discriptions saying they follow their hearts and have to chose between what they think is right and Thranduil's wishes. Perhaps it could be in relation to rescuing the dwarves.

I think you're confusing Yazneg with Bolg [In reply to] Can't Post

There has been no description of Yazneg.

As for the Elves in Mirkwood, I still think we Bilbo will save the Dwarves, but then the Elves turn up and get rid of the rest of the spiders. Bilbo's story arc is about saving the Dwarves, and them learning to trust him. They can't remove a section out of his arc. Especially as the Dwarves start trusting Bilbo a lot more after Mirkwood.

Supposedly the Elves do indeed [In reply to] Can't Post

rescue the Dwarves from the Spiders (or they fight the Spiders together).

This was mentioned in the 2013 annual book and somewhere else I believe (the Comic-Con 2012 reports)?

We'll have to see how it plays out...it could either work rather well as a heroic introduction to the Wood Elves who promptly turn out to be antagonistic toward the Dwarves (reversing the audience's expectations)...or it could plain stink and come off like bad fan-fic.

But Yazneg is still not a goblin [In reply to] Can't Post

What would he have to do with the goblins and wargs? Maybe to introduce the Dol Guldur enemies as a lead in to DoS?

Likely [In reply to] Can't Post

There will probably will be a connection between Dol Guldur and Goblin Town - Yazneg serves that purpose. Perhaps he goes on to Dol Guldur after the attack, assuming he isn't killed.

Since he his more man than anything else, I guess he is a deformed/tortured/mutant Mirkwood woodman. Though he could easily be an Easterling. Hey, he might even be the Mouth of Sauron. Unimpressed
