Posted ImageToday we take a look at another Lord of the Rings set - <a href="http://amzn.to/SMgkPm" target="offsite">9470 Shelob Attacks</a>. I picked it up a while ago but have finally gotten to sharing my thoughts on it with you all. So should you dare let this giant spider into your home, or is she better off squished on the sidewalk?

Definately an interesting set. It always suprises me how many different designs lego can make for spiders. And this one makes a really good halloween decoration.The minifigs are decent as well. But I'm not a fan of the lord of the rings, Though I may just have to watch the movies.

Even when things look there worst. And the shadow of evil is upon us. Remember that as long as we hope for the best. Light will appear and overcome the darkness.

Please check out my projects on Lego Ideas.9.gif

I'm looking for an Inkay or Malamar with its event move Happy Hour. Pm if you have one I can borrow to breed and pass the move down so I can have an Inkay with the move for myself.

My brother got this set quite a while ago. I think it's hilarious that Shelob's web string has a hook at the end. She's a tow spider!

Great review, Andrew! Looks like a pretty fun set, and your pictures really captured it! (Although they could could be lightened up a bit, but I'm not really one to speak about photo quality. :P )Thanks for the review!:music:

Good review. I think this is quite possible the best giant LEGO spider model I've ever seen in any theme. It's got a nice, solid, streamlined design, a web-spinning function, and all sorts of excellent spidery details. Certainly better than either version of Aragog from the LEGO Harry Potter theme.

I have this set, and I love it. With THREE One Rings I can rule the world!Ahem. I absolutely agree with the design of the mouth, that red isn't very good. It's a kinda poor mouth design. Thoguh, it's a great set.Thanks for the review anyways!

I don't remember Gollum being launched by a catapult in the third LotR movie, so I'm curious as to why one is in this set. I guess it's to give this set another function.But anyway, this set still looks really cool. Especially the spider! Thanks for the review!

No, but is I recall he leaped from some rocky outcropping or something like that, so this is probably supposed to take the place of that.

Really love this set, one of the best sets of the line, as well as being great value for money. Three key characters - bonus points for Gollum - and Shelob has an excellent design. Top banana.- Tilius

If I might nitpick: spiders, unlike insects, do not have a head/thorax/abdomen anatomy, but simply a cephalothorax/abdomen. Enough zoological quibbles, though. It was a good review, although it seemed to miss some of the jokes that reviews have historically been filled with.
