LOTR & The Hobbit 2012

Here's an unboxing video clearly showing the maps to be "stickered" :(

What?! That's ridiculous....and it makes very little sense, because Thror's map in the Hobbit game is printed.

Wow, this rivals the Mines of Moria regarding the amount of stickers....

It's pretty bad. He didn't even bother to take any photos himself. The link just2good gave has another review (but the quality is horrible).

Where are you in Canada? I'm in Toronto, so if there is a store downtown somewhere with these sets on shelves, I may be interested.

Toys Toys Toys in the Eaton Centre. Although I would never recommend supporting that store.

Nice review! Particularly liked the comparisons between Sam/ Bilbo and the two Gollum versions. This set seems perfect to attempt a modification, using a baseplate, some rocks on the side and water to create parts of the lake. Definitely going to buy it if I find it under 20 dollars.

I made a mistake in the review. The ring plate is supposed to be moved one stud to the left, which makes that play function work when the grotto is closed.

I am looking forward to one too. I think we'll see one when LegoLee329 reviews it next week, as he ordered it. I also can't wait to see reviews of the Barrel set!

My First Real MOC!
Almost ready for customers! Comics, Karate, and brutally painful Dentistry, all under one roof!

I think we've been hearing Nov 27th in Lego stores. Just after the BF sales, which makes sense because Lego doesn't want to offer the new stuff with any kind of discount just yet.

I wondered the same. If you obviously have zero interest in the Hobbit, why would you purchase these expensive sets? Oh well, to each his own, and I'm happy for each review (although this set is a must-buy since July anyway). However, I must admit that I turned this particular review to silent after hearing "very nice, as you can see here" for the tenth time within two minutes.
Edit: One unrelated note: The only thing I dislike about An unexpected Gathering (aside from the stickers) is the inside of the door. I wonder how it would look if you'd replace the white square with a brown, round 4x4 piece (i.e. the wheels of the Uruk-hai Army ballista).

That was an awesome review. Of course, I was playing a drinking game [one shot per "very nice," two per "as you can see"] and as such, I'm super drunk right now.
