Lego Lord of the Rings Mines of Moria

So I got a Lego Lord of the Rings Mines of Moria set.  This set like all the Lotr sets is pretty pricey.  It is probably better called Balin's Tomb since that is the part of the Mines which all these parts are from.

Here are the fellowship members for the set.  Pippin, Boromir, Gimli, and Legolas are found here.  With the currently available Lotr/Hobbit sets Pippin and Boromir are still only found in this set.  The picture did not really capture the printed details but here is a close up of Gimli.

You can see that the helm has some nice printing on it.

One of the main construction features is the barracaded door.  Pretty interesting construction but like the rest of the set uses to many stickers as opposed to printed parts.

Here is a Moria Orc leading the Cave Troll through the door.  The troll has adjustable arms and turning wrists.  You also get 2 Orcs to fight with the fellowship members.

This is the other main piece.

It can separate into parts and has levers for crashing down the columns along with revealing the treasure chest in the center part.

The set also includes the well and skeleton for Pippin and Balin's coffin which has lever action to knock the top off.  You get two skeletons but they could have used helmets or beards or even armor to make them more interesting.

This set along with a Gandolf Hobbit Polybag completed my fellowship of the Ring so they can defend the tomb as a team.   Ofcourse I am very short of enemies with just the 2 Orcs and Troll though.  The scale of the set is actually pretty good.  The battle was in a pretty tight space.
