I got this set for Christmas, and was really pleased with it! I loved building it, and It looks great! The detail is amazing, and the design ingenious! I think every LEGO fan whos bought this set would agree, a great buy!!!
- A pleasing number of Urak-Hais / Orcs. The Berserker Urak-Hai is especially cool! I would have liked one or two Rohan Soldiers, but It’s clever of LEGO to only include them in the extension set- “Urak-Hai Army”.
- The skull hidden in the stairs is quite strange, but a pretty cool feature.
- I love the attention to detail in this set! I really like the box in the tower, which in the film, Gimli uses to hoist himself up onto the ladder, to get to the horn!
- The throne room is awesome! I love the simple design, and the throne and gold glass and dish are very cool! The crest is very cool too, but I would have liked it not to be a sticker!
- A really great build! I like the way the parts are easily detachable, so that you can disassemble to move or to store!
- Great value for money, especially compared to some other themed/licensed sets!
- Love the colours. I think the occasional turquoise green brick works very well indeed!
- The minifigs are awesome! My favourite is Aragorn, but Haldir and Theodon are pretty epic too!
- The way LEGO designed the rounded walls is ingenious! Great design!
- 7 of the 8 minifigs have double-sided faces, which is always a bonus!
- The exploding wall is a cool feature, but don’t expect the pieces to go flying in all directions, it really just falls down most of the time! (Unless I’m doing it wrong lol :D)
- The weapons are very smart! Love the new Orc sword design!
I would love if you could share your opinion on this set, or share with me your reviews! Thanks!
