Nice. I really like the looks of this set, but can't spare the $40. : Oh well, thanks for the review!

[color=#ff0000;][font="'trebuchet ms', helvetica, sans-serif;"]Looks like a pretty decent set. I'm not really into the LOTR sets, but I might get this one if it goes on sale.[/color][/font]

Nice set, but I have to agree with the reviewer, playability is not much here. This is what I'd call just a "background set". No fighting, no fun. ^^ If only Treebeard was included... :P

 

Anyways, thanks for the review!

I agree that having some good guys to fight would've been nice. Especially if that good guy was Treebeard. :)

 

But this set is still cool. Thanks for the review!

Everyone is one choice away from being the bad guy in another person's story.

 

Check out my Bionicle short stories The Agori and A Skakdi Horror Story.

 

 

Also check out my comedy series Adventures of the Bara Magna Sets!

I figured that the "waterwheel" was just an oddly shaped windmill. Also, I feel including Treebeard or someone would have raised the price another $5-10,

and I'm fine with single faction sets anyway.
