First Hobbit Set, An Unexpected Journey, Revealed
As part of their Lord of the Rings themed-day today, LEGO revealed the An Unexpected Journey (set number not known at this time) based on the Hobbit movie coming out on December 14th of this year. The set depicts the very first scene in the movie where the hobbits are gathered at Bag End, the home of Bilbo Baggins. There is a great attention to detail in this set. The map tiles you see here each have unique printing that replicate the maps that strewn on the floor in the movie. Also of note is the new donut plate element used for the round windows: a 4×4 round plate with a 2×2 cut-out in the middle. This set is priced at $59.99. Piece count is unknown at this time. An Unexpected Journey, along with the rest of the Hobbit sets, have an on-shelf date of December 1, two weeks ahead of the movie. More pictures after the jump.
