4. LEGO 9473 The Mines of Moria

When I saw this part on the movie I got really excited… building it now with LEGO is as exciting. I love the way the Troll looks.

5. LEGO 79008 Pirate Ship Ambush

Big? Check. Lots of minifigs? Check. Lots of parts? Check. Who wants anything else? Maybe a few ghost more would have been interesting but it is a very nice set.

6. LEGO 79006 The Council of Elrond

This is a small set that it is the Council of Elrond that appears on the first book of The Lord of the Rings when men, dwarves and elves meet to decide what to do with the ring. They really get a fantastic result for the size.

This is part of the sets released for the second part of The Hobbit and I have to say that I love the way it looks.
