Legolas Greenleaf Polybag / The Hobbit: TDOS Bundle Exclusive To Target

12630463553_5f1fc4ac4e_o

Forum member bacon1986 (mmmmmmmmmm, bacon) has spotted the 30215 Legolas Greenleaf polybag available with The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug DVD/BluRay combo pack is indeed exclusive to Target. The figure appears to be the one from the Mirkwood Spiders set, so if you just want it for the fig, it may not be for you. If you don’t have that set, love collecting polybags or expected to pay around $25 for the combo pack anyway, it’s not a bad deal.

Images for New Hobbit Sets Found

While fuzzy, unkempt pictures have been circulating for a couple of days (which were watermarked, and thus, not posted here), sharp eyed reader Kez sent us a notice that the Swedish online store, Brixit, a place I’ve never heard of (not being from Sweden, I suppose), has posted four new sets in all of their hi-res glory, un-watermarked glory. Three new sets have been added to the lineup:

  • 79011 Dol Guldur Ambush, a smallish set that looks to be similar to Uruk-hai army
  • 79012 Mirkwood Elf Army, a set that looks to be about the size of Warg Attack (perhaps larger, could be more in Bag End price range), and just sent the price of Mirkwood elf polybags on a downward curve
  • 79014 Dol Guldur Battle, which looks a whole lot like Helm’s Deep

While we knew about the Lake Town battle set when it was revealed at Comic Con, the other three are new. It looks like both of the Dol Guldur sets are taking a page out of Uruk-hai and Helm’s Deep, and can be fit together. That’s not surprising, given that The Hobbit was basically trying to sucker people into paying to see The Hobbit without realizing it was just the same movies and effects presented again. Nothing in this bunch impresses me like Bag End did when it was first leaked leading up to The Hobbit.

What does everyone else think?
