Lego LOTR: Council of Elrond
More Lego Lord of the Ring to look at today. This is a smaller set, the Council of Elrond which I think was about 30 dollars. For that you got 4 minifigures and a small set piece for the meeting to decide the fate of the one ring.
Figures all have 2 sided torsos and heads split between the standard happy and angry faces.
There is a seating area for Elrond, Frodo and Gimli to discuss the ring. Ofcourse there were about 15 more people there so we really are going to need a few more chairs but could also be reshuffled to be the meeting place the the Unexpected Journey where they discuss the Witch Kings blade and the Company of Thorin's quest to the Lonely Mountain.
Wizard Battle set. Buying this set is mainly about getting an Arwen as Frodo and Gimli are pretty common and the battle armor Elrond from the Witch King set is better than this one.
I try to avoid the minifigure collections bug with the license sets as the star war lines keep releasing essentially the same set I already have just with better minifigures but I try to get female ones where I can. There are only 3 female characters represented in the LOTR/Hobbit line really so I guess I could be glad that they are in lower priced sets in the 15-30 dollar range mainly compared to other theme lines where they are often in the 70-80 dollar sets.
