    Looks kind of fake to me...why does Aragorn have a hood on? Also, the Ringwraith is in the scene, but not in the banner showing the minifigs. There also appears to be a Mordor orc atop the gate tower, but not that exact one listed on the minifig banner. Very suspicious.

    The "confidential" images are always a mixed bag. IIRC one of the first wave sets had the monkey fig as a proxy for Gollum in the mockup image.

    Note also the difference in Gandalf's beard in the panel and on the box - this is why they say preliminary.

    The interesting information is the price, which suggests this set will be $60 USD. That's cheaper than I expected.

    I can't see this set selling for that cheap. 655 pieces plus the new molds for the eagle and Mouth of Sauron's Helmet... But we can hope!

    I'll have to check again, but it is VERY similar to a model seen in a level of the Lego LotR video game (a bonus level which contains several miniature versions of several buildings). It's possible that other 2013 sets are hidden in that level...;)

    Does anyone else find it odd that you can add it to your cart?

    I know confidential pictures leaked online are banned. These are usually found on fan sites, or via grainy cell phone cam pics (taken illicitly).

    However, as this was a direct link to an international retailer, the onus lies with them, not with me. But, to be safe, I gave directions on how to locate the set.

    It looks like an eagle is flying over the Black Gate.

    If all goes well with the tower of orthanc and proves to be a success, i can only hope we get a big exclusive barad-dur next year, now that would be one epic Lego set! :)

    I just realized that I had a dream last night where I found the new LOTR pirate ship on clearance at Kmart, 6 mos ahead of time. Wow, I really need to take break from lego for awhile...:)

    I have all the LOTR sets so far... don't know that the ship will make it into my collection.
  • emilewskiemilewski CT, USAMember Posts: 476
    ^ I agree. I had decided to be a completionist in terms of LOTR/Hobbit but am undecided on this one. I never really felt it went well with the rest of the theme and the figs don't do a lot for me. If I find it at a great price I may get it.

    oh man! being a true pirate fan ( classic theme ) I must have this. I need to have it as another ship...man oh man...

    Yes! Another pirate ship! Aaaarrrrggghhh you landlocked lubbers! I fear it soon will be time to pillage and plunder me wallet again mateys!
    Definite must have for me! The picture is really small but I think the ship will look very nice next to all my other sail ships #10210 , #4184 , #4195 , #9446 , #7048 . Not only that I think she will be a beauty!
    The minifig's look good too. I just wish that instead of more Aragorns, gimliis, and legolasses, the set would include more dead men from Dwimorberg, pirates, and orcs (with pointy ear hair-pieces pretty please!).

    I'm with you guys! The re introduction of pirates where what brought me out of my dark ages, I have a huge soft spot for LEGO pirate ships, this is an instant purchase for me, no doubt!

    " Lord of the Rings

    Four new sets for August, all of which were fantastic.

    79005, The Wizard Battle, £12, small set featuring Saruman and Gandalf the Grey.
    79006, The Council of Elrond, £30, looks pretty much like I remember it from the film, and features Elrond, Arwen, Frodo and Gimli.
    79007, Battle at the Black Gate, £60, which we've all seen and which contains Aragorn, Gandalf the White, Mouth of Sauron and two Mordor Orcs.
    79008, Pirate Ship Ambush, £90, quite a reasonable ship using the usual parts. I think it has three mid-sections. Brown sails, nine minifigs: Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, King of the dead, two soldiers of the dead, Pirate of Umbar, which the guy on the stand reckons is supposed to be the one played by Peter Jackson, and two Mordor Orcs."

    All sounds very good to me. Although I am not sure I want to buy 10 ships to get a reasonable Army of the Dead .... Maybe Lego will produce an Undead promo bag for the Sun ???

    I'm a bit underwhelmed by these announced releases, and not very impressed by the prelim shots.

    I was hoping for more love for the first two movies before moving onto the third, such as:

    Black Riders chasing Arwen & poisoned frodo across the river.
    I'd love an Edoras set, with a reversible withered/recovered Theoden, Grima & Eowyn.
    Or perhaps Boromir's last stand at Amon-Hen (?) vs a properly dressed and equipped Lurtz (topknot hairdo, etc), and his band of Uruk Hunters. ... for this I had the idea to use a black carrot top (as the arrow) and stick it into one of those 'L' shaped 'vests' that go over minifig torsos. :oP

    And Battlepacks... if we must race through the movies like this then this theme is crying out for battlepacks right now, be they Moria goblins, Rohan warriors, Elves, Morgul Orcs, Warg Riders, Southrons/Easterlings, Deadmen of Dunharrow, etc. for the fight scenes.
    Gondorian Knights. Faramir's Rangers, Flying Nazgul, Gothmog, the Siege of Minas Tirith.

    Where is the 'Battle' in the Black Gate without the armoured trolls, masses of morgul orcs, etc. It's more of a 'name calling' at the black gate.

    ^^I think name calling at the Black Gate would be great:

    Aragorn:Let the lord of the Black land come forth!

    Mouth of Sauron:ugly

    Aragorn:butt face

    MoS:froggy breathe

    A:loser

    MoS:asshole

    A:hey there is no need to get really offensive. If your gonna be like that we will stop playing

    MoS:sorry. I tend to get carried away. Hug and be friends?

    Crack, smash, thud.

    MoS: hey! You killed sauron thats not fair. You never wanted to be friends? Well boo to you sir. Boo to you.

    MoS: You never wanted to be friends? Well boo to you sir. Boo to you.

    :oD Lol.

    Aragorn: : There must be ten thousand orcs between frodo and mount doom, we must draw them out!

    Gimli: You'd better be right, Aragorn. Gandalf said moria was full of goblins... two i counted. Two.

    Gandalf: Master Gimli, we clearly took a safer path than anticipated, perhaps we'll encounter more goblins later... in a flashback sequence or something. I'm expecting quite a life-changing encounter from there myself.

    Boromir (alive and confused): You're not kidding, Gandalf.

    later... at the Black Gate

    Hello, where'd everyone go? Yoo-hoo! Anybody home?

    Legolas: ...I think they're out, guys. Should we leave a note or something, you know, to let them know we called?

    Gandalf,: I still have the seeing stone, I'll give Sauron a call, see where he is... Oh look, someone's coming...

    MouthofSauron: Err... yeaaaah, about the orcs... look guys, I dropped the ball. I had this whole battle planned, and i was going to throw a shirt at you, but I just got snowed under with paper work.

    Meanwhile, at the foot of mount doom...

    Sam:
    Well that was easy, mr frodo! What a joker that Mr Elrond was, with his threats of doom and terrible monsters. I'm not sure what the fuss was about now.

    Frodo: Nor me sam, nor me. Oh look, an eagle.

    Sam: it's quite lovely here, isn't Mr Frodo. Could do with a few flowers, mind.

    Frodo: Yes Sam, very warm, too.

    Fantastic. Given its absence in Huw's report, I thought this may have been canceled. Though, if it isn't available in the US, like Battle of Hoth wasn't, I'll be a bit upset.

    As for the game itself: As a board gamer, I'm glad to see something that looks more meaty than the typical LEGO game. Also, it will be nice to have the microfigures. To be honest, I'm looking forward to this game more than the second wave of LoTR sets.

    It's too bad the text is cut off in the photo. It looks like the characters included are, from left to right: Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Theoden, Eowyn, Haldir, Rohan Soldier (?), Berserker Uruk-Hai (?), Uruk-Hai Archer, Uruk-Hai (?), and Uruk-Hai Soldier (?).

    The lord of the rings/hobbit should be available in the US, as the one hobbit game I have seen on the shelf. The reason behind Hoth star wars game not being released in the US is becouse Lego doesnt hold the license for star wars board games in the US

    And that's my fear for the LoTR game. Fantasy Flight sells both Star Wars and LoTR games in the US. WizKids also sells LoTR games in the US. I hope their having licenses to do this doesn't preclude LEGO from doing so.

    Special suprise on Lord of the Brick if you are able to get the riddle :)

    What has roots that nobody sees,
    who is taller than the trees,
    Who goes, who goes,
    and who yet never grows?

    Are those dark orange leaves as well as dark red in the Rivendell set or is it just the lighting making them appear that way?
