I must admit that I was not originally planning to buy this set. If you do not have the extended version of the Return of the King, you are probably wondering where the ship came from. My kids like pirate ships, and it does contain some unique elements and figures, therefore this was the first purchase in the new wave of sets. The ship itself is an imaginative and unique design. In comparison to the Black Pearl of Pirates of the Caribbean, it is a bit longer from bow to stern and shorter at the masts. There is plenty of deck space for display and play activities. If you like lots of weaponry, you will really enjoy this set. There are plenty of weapons available, and it is even incorporated into the design of the ship. The anchors are made from axe heads, and it looks great. A dozen shields also line the ship fore and aft. There are plenty of accessories such as Middle Earth maps, a bit of treasure, and bottles. The back sail and wheel area lifts up to reveal the brig, complete with a bucket and rat. Moving functions include flick fire weapons on each side of the ship. The anchors can also be raised and lowered by a clever wheel device. A really nice variety of parts are used, and the build remains interesting from start to finish. This set is great for those who desire minifigs, because there are nine. Three are Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas. They appear exactly as they have in earlier sets. There are two orcs, neither of which have hair. They come with a catapult to recreate the scene where the ship lands near Minas Tirith. Although the orcs are not unique from previous designs, one could always use more orcs to set up for large battle scenes. Then there is the Army of the Dead. Lego did a great job here, and I suspect these minifigs will be the most desirable of the nine presented. The King of the Dead has a nice green crown and you get two army of the dead soldiers to go along with him. The soldiers are not identical, which is also nice. Aragorn and the King of the Dead use a large sword, while the soldiers have smaller swords. Gimli has an axe, and Legolas has his bow. Since this is a pirate ship, there is one pirate in the set. He is made to resemble Peter Jackson's cameo role as one of the Corsair pirates. He comes with a chain and bread, yes bread. He has the new hair which appears to allow for a quiver to be worn if for some reason you wanted him to have one. Overally, this is a great set to have, although it is one of the pricier ones. I do predict it will be popular due to design, playability, and minifigures. There is not really much I would change about the set. Of course, I would have liked Aragorn to have a unique sword representing Anduril. Another pirate would have been great, but these are only minor issues. This should be a hit with all ages.

Needs more bad guys!

The title says it all otherwise a great set, this set needs more orcs! It seems as if the battle is lopsided! With so many good guys, this set needs way more orcs, like four or five more to create a decent matchup.

      "Look to the black ships"

      from Vista

      Comments about LEGO The Hobbit Pirate Ship Ambush (79008):

      I got this on Christmas and built it while eating 5 pounds of candy. The ship looks great just like in the film. Also the minfigures are awesome the big 3 in one set plus 2 orcs. The inside of the boat however like most lego sets is to small. It is hard to play with and I just display it. All you can do is have the three hop on fight the orcs and pirate and thats it. No biggie thought. A great set for any lotr fan.

                      This is one hot ship. It comes with a lot of mini figures, and is very well designed. I love all the pirate ships that Lego makes and this one is up there with the Pirates of the Caribbean ship in quality. I haven't put it together yet, but am looking forward to it.
