LEGO Trailer Speculation Can't Post

I've seen the *SPOILERS* tag so much lately I really didn't want to add it to the title, but if any of the lovely moderators think it needs it, feel free to add it! Smile There shouldn't be anything too spoiler-y here, though.
So, has anyone else seen the trailer for the new LEGO Laketown set? The TV was on at my relatives' house yesterday and I saw the trailer at least four times (yes, and I rushed into the room to watch it every time Angelic). Of course, this is LEGO, which can take liberties with what is included in the sets - liberties that do not always even reflect the movie. (Some of the Marvel sets come to mind.) However, my observation has been that whoever does the LEGO sets are fairly knowledgeable about Tolkien (they included blue flames for Gandalf in the warg-attack-oh-no-let's-climb-the-trees set, so how about that, AinurOlorin? Wink). So, with that in mind, I'm just going to throw it out there that the LEGO trailer for Laketown included shots of Bilbo apparently imprisoned (?!), and what looked like the boat belonging to the Master of Laketown sailing by. It ended with Bilbo escaping and knocking the Master into the water, along with a couple of his guards.
I know it's just a tiny scene of animated LEGO minifigures and probably has *no* bearing upon the movie whatsoever, but I thought it was kind of funny. Laugh What do you think? To me, Bilbo being imprisoned or at least behind bars and in need of rescue sounds utterly ridiculous. What could possibly have led up to that? However, some evil overlady part of me (cue evil laugh *ahahahaha*) would like to see the Master get knocked in the water.
So, sorry for the long post. Evil What shenanigans do *you* think will occur in Laketown?

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."
