I am working my way up to larger LEGO Lord of the Rings sets, and had a chance to build set 9471 this week: Uruk-Hai Army. For $30, it is a mid-range set price wise, but offers lots of playability for kids, and is a nice army builder for adult collectors.
The entire setup:
It is written everywhere like this:
The spare parts and parts I didn’t use, including capes:
Rohan soldier. This guy is pretty pricey on the aftermarket.
Eomer, Incredible detail on the helmet especially:
The Uruk-hai army:
Choice of two faces (which only a mother could love):
The Uruk-hai weapon:
I believe this is a new piece, a fully printed wood board:
The new horse:
A section of Helms Deep:
I love that this is brick built, and not made out of large molded pieces:
The colors and details are great:
Overall, I really like the set, and appreciate how this is meant to be an add-on to the larger Helm’s Deep LEGO set.
