LEGO Shelob Attacks Review – Lord of the Rings Set 9470

It was great to pick up a couple of the new LEGO Lord of the RIngs sets, Shelob Attacks is the first I was able to dig into. For $20, it’s a nice sized set, you essentially get 4 characters here and a great scene from the book/movie.

The minifigs, I believe 2 are unique to this set:

Ah Frodo. He has two looks: tired and terrified. The ring came out really nice, and you get 3 in the package. I like the detail on his outfit:

Probably my favorite part of the set is Sam’s shirt. I can see this being used for Civil War soldiers and other uses in the LEGO universe. Nice that they got the eyebrows matching the hair.

Gollum. The face certainly captures the scary side of him:

The figure overall is awkward. It’s mostly a big molded piece. Not horrible, but not amazing either other than the head printing:

His feet:

You get a small cave/rock formation here:

Shelob is pretty impressive. Big, and dare I say: scary!

I was glad to see the face was printed, not a sticker:

The rear of the spider has a contraption that allows you to hang her:

      To me, all of the sets look good, but they sure are expensive. I tend to stalk the sales to get the sets at discount. I just picked up Helm’s Deep for $106 after tax. It’s normal retail is $130.u00a0
