That is one way to go about it. The only problem I have with it is usually you can pay just a little more and get the whole set plus the figures. But I guess I don't know how prices are in Croatia. Have fun with that though. The figures look awesome.

The sets are up on Kmart's website in the US. I had to check back a few times because they go out of stock and then come back up randomly.

Can you share with us what state you are in? I've seen the Hobbit sets at local Freddies, just not the Mirkwood or Barrel sets yet.

I post one of Thorin's a couple pages back. Basically, it's a long flowing hair-style with part of the top section tied back. It can't work with a quiver, but could work with a cape.

I'm pretty sure it works with a quiver. Thorin shares the same hair as Fili and Kili and they both have quivers on their backs.

I don't think his had the Barrel Escape set either.  K-mart doesn't have it so that must be the TRU exclusive like The_Chosen_1 points out.

Yea I have the Mirkwood spiders set and I can tell that the quiver fits with hair but not dastans sword holder from prince of persia.

I was wondering about the sword holder. It's a shame. It would have been really cool if Fili could wear his two swords on his back and Kili could have his quiver and bow. Regardless, this new hair piece will become very popular with Castle fans. Glad LEGO made it.

That tv spot was really good. It showed some of the conflict between Thorin and Bilbo, and it looks like PJ will have it be very much in the forefront of the story.

On a more LEGO related note, do people who have some of the sets plan on making in depth reviews?

Why does the AUJ cast still mention Orlando Bloom as Legolas?
I thought he was to appear in the second film along with Tauriel...

Speaking of the mirkwood set, its kind of annoying that they don't allow enough space on legolas's hairpiece (all elves for that matter) to equip the quiver. Lame, because you can do it for the goblins, as well as thorin, kili and kili

It is unfortunate, but it is also evident that LEGO intends to use this elf hairpiece for most elves, even those who don't wear quivers, which means that an elven hairpiece that would allow for a quiver would look strange on elves who don't have them. Unless LEGO is to make a new elven hairpiece, we'll unfortunately have to make do with the hair they have right now.
