    I would recommend this to a friend!
    Ever since I saw his kit was coming, I've wanted it. As a Lego and Lord of the Rings Fan, it was a must have. I was not disappointed when I finally got it. My wife and I had great fun building this, each room bringing new delights. The detail of the outer walls and the way the pieces all come together is amazing. Each room is packed and I'm sure this kit will bring hours of fun for any who buy it.

    So I now have every LOTR and Hobbit set, and this is without a doubt my Crown Jewel! This set is Huge, and is done the way Lego should do these Middle earth sets. The only two others done right are the Battle of Helms Deep and An Unexpected Gathering(the rest are more like backdrops for the minifigs, which are awesome). On to the review. Minifigs: There is only one exclusive here, and that is Grima Wormtongue. He is amazing, with great printing, and a greenish face. Gandalf, The Orc, The Uruk-Hai are all the same, and can be gotten in cheaper sets. Saruman comes with a dress piece that is really nice, but other than that he is the same. The Eagle is a nice touch, but is the same as the black gate one. Ent: The Ent looks wonderful. Don't think it's Tree Beard, but is still nice. They have a lot of detail, and also included some mushrooms growing out of him, which I always like. Moveable hands and legs, but I think the arm with the lever could have been done better. Almost no movement there. The Tower: The tower is huge, with lots of goodies. Not much repetition in the build (which is surprising when you look at it), but there are stickers (which I hate because I can never put them on right). There are some cool details, like picture of all five (Yes there are five) wizards, and a small space for wargs. I don't like how you cannot fit the wizard battle set in this one. Kinda made me feel like getting it was pointless, but I do prefer the eye of Sauron Palantir, to the one that comes in this set. Overall: I give this set a 10 out of 10. The price per piece ratio os great, the build is fun (the biggest set I've ever had, finally beat out my Imperial Flagship.), and the playability is nonstop. A must buy for LOTR fans and everyone else!

    Really enjoyed building this! Just to see how long it would take me to assemble, I was able to watch the Hobbit twice upon completing. A lot of thought went into designing it and helped me with creating book shelves of my own. The Ent is a little odd but with a child's imagination it would do.

    Great set

    This set from Lego is most likely the best set to date if you're a LOTR fan the height of the tower stands over all of my other sets and makes for a very cool moc. The playability is a little small on the inside for bigger hands and if you drop a piece it is hard to reach but other than that this set is great
