79001 Escape from Mirkwood Spiders

They are also applying a 25% discount on 79002 Attack of the Wargs. Price now is just $37.49 down from $49.99 MSRP.

Edit: I just discovered that Amazon is matching Target’s price on the Spider set. An additional 5% off and free shipping for REDCard members.

Review: 79001 Escape from Mirkwood Spiders

Full Set

Have I made a joke lately about my proud history of timely reviews? Probably, given the sheer numbers of reviews that I have done well after the set was brand new and the movie in an out of theaters (or DVD), I probably have. To make matters worse, I often take the pictures right away, and then get busy before writing the review.

Case in point, Escape from Mirkwood Spiders, a set of pictures I took last year and uploaded to Flickr for comments. In the run of Hobbit sets, this set, along with Barrel Escape, stand out simply because they aren’t in the first movie, they appear somewhere later in the whole thing. Presumably, as this set includes Legolas, and he’s been shoehorned in to the second (and third) movies, it will probably show up in the upcoming “The Desolation of Smaug.”

Given that spider attacks are something of a thing in the series in general, it wasn’t surprising that they’d show up here. Though somehow, I doubt they’re the high fantasy, talking sort that Bilbo ran in to. All of that being said, how does this $30 set stack up in a world where the $30 sets often have been the stars of their line?

Quick Amazon Update: Hobbit Sets Get Discounted and More TMNT Sets In Stock

Just a quick note since I’m tired. First up is Amazon selling The Hobbit sets at a 20% discount. Example: 79010 The Goblin King Battle is regularly $99.99 but it is now $79.99. 79000 Riddles for The Ring is the worst deal since they’ve already marked it up a few bucks over MSRP. After discount, the set only falls to $9.49, a whopping 50 cent discount. They’re out of 79003 An Unexpected Gathering, but you can pick up 79001 Escape from Mirkwood Spiders and 79002 Attack of the Wargs at 20% less than MSRP.

And lastly, Amazon has stocked up on some more TMNT sets. In addition to 79104 The Shellraiser Street Chase that we’ve reported previously, they also have 79101 Shredder Dragon Bike, 79102 Stealth Shell in Pursuit, and 79100 Kraang Lab Escape in stock as well. No discount on the turtle stuff unfortunately but they are brand new in every sense of the word and can make some kids very happy this Christmas.

The Hobbit Sets Trickle Into Amazon

Amazon has listed a few of The Hobbit sets on their site. A lower threshold for free shipping and no tax to most states might make this a better deal than Shop@Home but you do get VIP points with LEGO. Oddly enough, 79000 Riddles for The Ring is priced two dollars more than MSRP at $11.99. Shop@Home has this set for $9.99, so buyer beware. There’s a list below of what’s available. I’ll update this post throughout the day as more sets become searchable.
