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.

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.
