Almighty Benny wrote:One of the things I like about the set are all the little things that come with it. Some of which you can't even tell by looking at the box.

For example, the hidden kitchen in the base of the mountain, complete with fireplace, table, goblet, and turkey leg. Also in the front there's a blacksmith's forge with an anvil and workbench. Things like this are what make well-designed Lego sets extra fun to build.

My favorite part of the whole thing though is the mountain king with his golden helmet and war hammer. This set is hands down my favorite in years and I'm glad it has it's own thread. Just awesome.


I'm so with you on this, that battle hammer made me crap my pants. For some reason I was excited by that little winch thing on the right side. I made that basket go up and down for hours

I really love the Dwarves' Mine and the Castle Siege. Neither have any prefabs (except for the BURPs, and they don't count), and both have good, sturdy construction with lots of basic bricks. Lego, if you're reading this, awesome job!

The only poseability is in the arms, which can pick up a minifig but can't swing a club very well. Still, a troll's a troll.

I remember seeing this in a catalouge a few months ago. I was like, "FRICKING SWEET!" and I put into one of my "have to have" slots in my head, but then it just sort of dropped off the radar. I started wondering about it a few days ago, and here's a thread about it.

>_>

Maybe God wantses me to buy this set.

Don't forget the wrists. If you take off the hands, there's slots that fit TECHNIC pegs so with a little creativity you can create any zany weapon. Just imagine a troll that shoots missiles out of it's arms.

this set just gets better and better doesn't it
Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.

It will be out in June, along with the Indiana Jones DC-3, which is probably going to be the most awesome LEGO plane ever made.

This was the first big set that I blew money on like Bonn-o-Tron. Mainly, I needed a large assortment of pieces... and I really, really wanted one of those trolls!

It took me a long time to put it all together, which was fun. And it really is a fantastic set with a lot of really ingenious things (the anvil, the warhammer, the kitchen, the helmet and armor rack).

This has been my favorite purchase so far, along with the tree-cutter from the Indy set. That thing is nasty, nasty, nasty!
