Now that we have them in hand, rather than just pictures, what do people think of the sets? Here is my take:
79018-1: The Lonely Mountain. I just put Smaug together and I am rather pleased with him. He is much more elegant and larger than the dragon from #70403: Dragon Mountain. All the major parts are new molds and the color is dark red. He can be put in many poses and has a lot of attitude. His leatherish wings fold in or extend. I haven't finished the building, but it is shaping up nicely with gold and sand green throughout.
79015: Witch-King Battle is obviously a minifig pack and satisfying. Galadriel's sparkly cape is pretty, I'm very happy the witch king's crown is separate, so I can make more Ringwraiths.
79016: Attack on Lake-town expands the Lake town environment with a pleasant building. The orcs and elves can just be evicted and I'll ignore the bolt-action tower thingee.
79017: The Battle of the Five Armies - I like the dwarves! Dain and Thorin with crown are nice additions to the theme. The catapult is another rendition of *a catapult.* Are there any other weapons in Lego worlds of this era? The building is ok. Nice colors for Dale, but pretty insipid. Azog, again, bleh.
