Here we have the first of the Lego Lord of the Rings sets that I have picked up, Attack at Weathertop. It is one of the middle sized sets priced at about 60 dollars. Lego has priced these sets very high, similar to Star Wars sets so you pretty much have to be getting them on sale to even get close to what the unlicensed set would be. I have been waiting for a good sale on some of the smaller sets at some local stores. Weathertop is really a huge ruin so this is really just a tiny representation.
You also get 2 Ring Wraiths with 2 of the new horses in black which will go nicely with any evil knights is your collection. The horses have a new pose shown in the picture. The wraiths are almost all black with a worn clock and no faces. Put a normal cape on them and a face and you have a nice Return of the Jedi Luke figure.
One of the scenes you have set up is the hobbits cooking with fire on the side of the old fortress while Frodo sleeps.
This ofcourse draws the ring wraiths to them. Stabbed Frodo has a different face while he waits to be rescued by Aragon on the upper level.
There is a trap door which sort of drops minifigures down.
Here is the other side bottom. The set has some nice details. I like the microfigures as statues but where does that door lead.
These stairs are also pretty cool from the lower to upper level.
Here is the inside that the door leads to. You have a weapon rack on the left which the model going down the trap door hits. I have no idea what the back hooks on the right side are supposed to be that think that the inclusion of flick fires on the right is just stupid. The torch mounts and again microfigures statues are cool.
The set has cool figures and tons of weapons but the size is just a small. It is a set for are very important set of scenes but it is just to small for such a large place. You cannot really fit the figures properly on top for battles. The curved structure makes it pretty hard to expand out of your existing collections.
