What do you mean by flavour?
Other than gandalf arrives and the orc forge they all look really dreary and lifeless which in some cases isn't a bad thing but too much gets boring.
You see this? This is a Lego set. It is meant to be played with and kids are supposed to enjoy it.
Lack of Flavor:
Now you see this? This is a model, created for people to display and fanboys to buy.
When I say flavor, I mean something that drives the imagination. The ability to let kids use their imagination to create stories and battles that are wacky and bounce off the wall. There are only so many ways you can fight the battle of Helm's Deep, but there's an infinite number of things you can do with the pirate set. There also is a certain charm that the pirate set has that the Helm's Deep one lacks.
Still, I'm not saying that the LOTR sets are not cool, I'm just saying that they feel dull to me.
