Out of all the Hobbit sets this was my favourite. It has 5 minifigures and 2 really awesome Wargs.
Minifigures: My favourite minifigure in the Hobbit theme is Thorin Oakenshield who has an extremely detailed torso with his blue fur coat and a belt filled with emeralds and sapphires. He has Kili's hair and his face has a normal expression and one that is yelling. His weapons are a shortsword and ax but I replaced his sword with a chrome greatsword to make it look more like Orcrist. The other dwarf is Bifur who has a detailed rubber hairpiece and beard with the ax piece embedded in his forehead. His weapon is a spear and his head has a smile and an angry expression. The antagonists included are 2 hunter Orcs and Yazneg who has a new armour piece and a bone axe. The hunter Orcs are the same as Mordor Orcs but have hairpieces and different legs. One carries an old sword and the other has a bow and quiver.
The Wargs are extremely detailed and have poseable heads and jaws. They have saddles and removable brick pieces if a minifigure is not using them.
The first part of the set is the rocky outcrop which has a skull and bone hidden beneath it. The outcrop is used by the white Warg as a perch. Next is the catapult which you can attach to the outcrop if you wish and it is used to launch the dwarves into the tree or to shoot rocks at our small heroes. The main part is the tree which can rotate so you can have it however you want. The first part has a gold nugget hidden in the trunk and there are new mushroom pieces on the ground. There are places to put the dwarves and the other play feature is the flame shooter which are used to keep the Wargs at bay. The final part of the set are the flames which can be placed under the tree to "burn" it.
Here is my conclusion:
Pros: No stickers, Thorin, Orcs, Bifur, Wargs, tree, flames, rocky outcrop and catapult.
Cons: No Azog the Defiler and could have included one more Warg.
All in all it is a fantastic set and a must buy.
The minifigures are the main reason I bought this set. The Wargs are so awesome. They can open and close their mouths and move their heads. Thorin's hair has a place for a quiver and I like Bifur's spear. It should come with Azog instead of Yazneg. For some reason the tree can twist and there is gold in the tree. Are the blue things supposed to be fire? The flames shoot way farther then you would think. The rocks are cool because they can be attached or separate. I wouldn't have bought this except that it was on sale. I have this as the main display on my desk.
Great set, OK price.
This set is very good. it comes with five mini figures.
Bifur has the axe piece on his head which is a cool edition
the Wargs can move at the jaw and neck they are my favourite part of the set.
the set has cool play features such as the fire that you can launch off and the tree can move.
over all I think this is a very good set but i would like to see just one more Warg.
great job lego.
This set was a lot bigger than I expected. Like twice as big. Unfortunately, as far as minifigures go, I was a bit disappointed. I thought the dwarves weren't very good, and we've seen Gandalf before. While the goblins had cool heads, they were not spectacular. The Goblin King, on the other hand, is not a minifigure. It was epic. His club and body were really big and awesome, and he fits well in the throne. The big downside of this set is that the big structures don't fit together. The whole thing is made up of a few pieces that are all really cool and detailed, but they don't connect, so when you transport the set you have to do it piece by piece. That said, the pieces were awesome, especially the part with the bridge and the part under the throne, which was huge and awesome looking. Now for the functions. The bridge was cool, but it was a bit tedious to put back in, and the effect isn't that good because there's almost no drop. On the other hand, the ladder works very well. The winch with the bucket is awesome and very cleverly designed. You can move the scribe around very easily. Overall I would say that this is a very good set with a few cons. I say that because it's expensive you should definitely think about buying it if you're not a LOTR or Hobbit fan. If you are, then definitely get it, because it's a must have for a collection, as well as being very fun to play with.
the goblin king battle is a great set for the high price. the building experience was challenging, it would help evolve novice builder whilst challenging the most experienced of builders.
the play features are really balanced through out the set with features like a collapsing bridge and hidden treasure hoard.
the minifigs are really well detailed and some of the custom pieces used to help detail the dwarves is pulled off expertly.
so to sum up great value, amazing detail, epic minifigs and challenging build. i give it 100/10
I love my the Goblin King Battle Lego set. There were very few cons the this set. But hey that means more pros right? The best part of the set is that there are many moving parts like the bridge, the goblin scribe tower, The ladder and the treasure under the throne.(That makes this set much more entertaining) It is a Perfect Present for any kid. I promise!
Pros: The goblin king
The many moving parts
Cons: There are to many lose parts that fall off or you will lose
