I find it funny how many explosive functions are on that Great Goblin (I refuse to call him the 'Goblin King' or 'Orc King', in the same way it's a Juggernaut, not a 'Turbo Tank') set and how much carnage you could cause by hitting one part of it. Though, I feel this set suffers from the lack of full rock detailing. The Scribe's (Now confirmed) crane thingie has not enough parts to look good removed from the structure and the ladder part has a huge hole under it. Finally, I'm ashamed the throne has nought under it but a Moria-esque treasure chest revealing mechanism, where there could have been a whole cave part.

Who thinks this set'll have clips to connect Gollum's cave to the side of it?

I've seen at least two sites that have claimed the Barrel Escape is a TRU exclusive, which would make sense everything considered (it wasn't available for pre-order form any other foreign sites, it's a mid sized set, etc.).  I've also seen prices for everything listed from a few different sources that seem to match up.  

It appears that the site claiming there would be a Lego LotR/Hobbit exclusive was wrong then?  I haven't found ANY news on it and haven't seen anything on eBay.  Not that I am complaining, I am glad there wasn't an exclusive.  It just seemed like there was next to no news at NYCC for the Lego Hobbit/LotR sets.

Bugger, that's unfortunate. The fling makes the torso much less useful. Oh well, nothing a cape cannot hide...

What about the back of it? I don't think that should differ too much in design.

I would say it's the back. If you look at the official pictures on the lego site you can see the front in hq and it's different from the photo, posted above.
But I think you can turn it around pretty easy, without anybody knowing it..

While it is used as front in that picture (judging by the hand holding a stick that can be seen in the right side), it's quite clear that it's officially backprinting - all the official pics are other way round, and the other side is a bit more detailed (except the fling).

This is DEFINITELY the back.  The other side has a much bigger belt buckle and designs going down vertical the middle where he buttons the shirt.  The back has nothing but a horizontal line.. I don't know of many shirts that button up in the back  :tongue:

Crap. Board game price is spot on, so I suppose the others are correct too. No barrel set listed... looks like it's an exclusive.

That's supposed to be the Goblin King set. It's the number for it, the likely price for it PLUS that one isn't listed on the site but all the rest are, and we are very much expecting the Barrels set to be exclusive.

Ouch, those Australian prices are ridiculous, some being as much as double what they should end up being here in the U.S.!

Yes, I like the first Hobbit line.

Those minifigures are all very beauty created. (Especially the Goblin King :laugh: )

Do you have any news about the german prices?

Seeing the pictures more and more makes me want the sets even more (even though I was already going to get them). I like seeing the elves more close up. I wonder if the Legolas torso would work well with Haldir's army at Helm's Deep? The dark red/gold color scheme seems fitting. Not that I will be building an army of them necessarily. Tauriel is beautiful. A redheaded elf. We need to keep the redheads alive.

Middle Earth are the only "for sure" sets I will be getting. I'm torn on other themes that I normally collect, so we'll see how that goes.
