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.

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
