Confirmation from the Heroclix figures that Yazneg is from Dol Guldur.

I've looked at the items on Ebay, but where is the new info on Yazneg...? [In reply to] Can't Post

I saw the toy itself, but seem to have missed what I assume is the packaging or item description? Thanks.

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
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!!!!!

Which has some implications in terms of story changes [In reply to] Can't Post

Yazneg is present during the "Into the Fire" scene. So do Goblins of the Misty Mountains and Orcs of Dol Guldur both turn up?

Why can't they keep things simple?

Do we know that? [In reply to] Can't Post

*In Ian Mckellan's voice of course*

I heard from someone (can't remember if it was a TORnado or someone else) that Iron man is in a set he totally shouldn't be or some other character in another lego set. Sure lego is right about the scribe and all that, I never doubted that because Lego wouldn't just make up a character for their sets, but they might shift existing characters around from set-to-set. I'm still not 100% sure that Yazneg is in that scene.

And also, I don't think the MM goblins will turn up at all. Just hunter orcs and maybe (probably) Yazneg and his crew.

Thanks. Vampire or not, again it seems he's certainly more than just another Orc baddie....// [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm almost certain Yazneg is some kind of vampire, based on the description ("Your death makes me stronger", "Bloodthirst", etc) [In reply to] Can't Post

The Lego site calls him a "Brute Orc"... [In reply to] Can't Post

though I suppose he could be a "Vampire Orc"? There was speculation of Goblin werewolves a while back as I recall...Wink

Two other tidbits [In reply to] Can't Post

Yazneg is described as a "ruler" , Bolg being the only other Orc with this appellation.

And Fimbul, unlike the other Orcs is not labelled with Dol Guldur - so could we be on the wrong track with him?

Oh and Radagast doesn't get a White Council label.
