Legos are one of those products that are quality made, and continue to be quality made. Guess that's why they are expensive. My son loves Legos and we have spent quite a few bucks on Legos. Its ok, they make the brain think instead of staring at a tv. This set is good. The expected attention to detail is there, and even the small parts and mesh where you might expect a company to go cheap, Lego did not. Enough pieces to build, take apart, make something else. Good product.
My overall view on this set is positive. If you liked the Lord of the Rings line, you'll like this set as well. It has a good balance of minifigures, parts, and features.
Overall this set is pretty much about the minifigures and the spiders. For the price I think the value is quite good, while the minifigures are very detailed for 2013, so overall I think this is a good set.
I think this is a very good addition to the Hobbit theme. Each of the minifigures have some great detailing, from their outfits to their hairpieces. The Mirkwood spiders are simple but they do resemble some scary looking spiders. The Mirkwood forest sections do add to the set since they're a bit on the small side and because more of the focus is on the characters themselves. The spider nets are a cool idea as well as the feature to release them. The price for the set is pretty good considering you get four exclusive minifigures. I would highly recommend getting the Escape From Mirkwood Spiders set.
This is another great set that is interesting to build and great to play with. I imagine that Mirkwood is a dark and evil place: the use of dark colours and the design of the creepy-looking trees set certainly conveys that well.
Pass. I suspect this set might be the only way you'll be able to pick up Fili & Kili for the time being, but the build is repetitive, the elf minifigs are non-canon (though they are elf minifigs), and the part selection is lackluster.
