    This set is definitely the highpoint of the Hobbit subline; Lego have really knocked it out of the park with this one. Not only is this one of the most iconic locations in both the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings, they have managed to load the set with loads of neat little features. The figures are great as usual; you get Bilbo, Gandalf and a whole four of the dwarfs, all nicely detailed and with accessories. I was particularly taken with Bombur, who has an extra plastic 'belly' attached to his beard piece, to make him just that little bit tubbier than the other figures. Bag End itself is a fantastic build, both fun and nicely challenging to build. The way in which the round doorway and windows are built up is interesting, and I like that the top of the hill is easily removable for access to the interior. The interior itself is full of furniture and accessories; there's plenty of food and drink, a selection of maps, and more. I particularly liked that they included the Red Book of Westmarch on Bilbo's writing table, for if you're presenting Bag End in the Lord of the Rings era. The care that has gone into this set is shown by the fact that the door even has Gandalf's 'burglar's mark' scratched into it; this is a great playset and a must-have for any Middle-Earth fan.

      Comments about LEGO The Hobbit An Unexpected Gathering (79003):

      I am a huge fan of The Hobbit and I love this Lego set. It's a great addition to my collection. Legos are always fun with detailed instructions and easy to put together for kids of all ages and this is no exception. Although I do think that the price for Legos in general are a bit high (they are just little pieces of plastic after all), I would definitely recommend this product.

        Comments about LEGO The Hobbit An Unexpected Gathering (79003):

        This truly is one of the best Castle/Lord of the Rings/Hobbit themed sets in a long time, possibly since the Medieval Market Village set from a few years ago. Not your average open scene type of set like other recent sets that merely try to replicate a single scene from a movie with not much construction, this set allows you to build a complete set, with some wonderful details on the landscape and architecture and a wealth of furnishings within the interior of the home. Great details such as Bilbo's writing desk complete with book and ink bottle, a full feast fit for a king decorating the table, and maps taken directly from the movies and books strewn about the floor. The minifigures included with this set are among the best for the Hobbit line, but I might be biased since it includes some of my favorite dwarves from the movie: Dwalin, Bifur, and Balin.

        The only drawback is the fact that it requires the application of decals to several pieces. I would prefer for the LEGO bricks to be printed, but I suppose they do this for the purpose of reducing costs, which I'm okay with.

        I had enormous fun putting the set together, and it is such a great LEGO set that I display it proudly among my collection. I highly recommend this set. If you only buy one LEGO set this year, let it be this one.

        This was an amazing set! Comes with 6 characters. The inside of the house is so detailed! Swinging door, and fence! I love how you can take the top off! I love to do stop motion videos with my lego! I had to wait a while for this product, but it was worth waiting for! :)

          This set is one of the most detailed we have ever seen. There are so many fun parts to assemble right down to the flowers in the garden. Plus, you get 6 figures! We had such fun putting it together and now it's sitting on our mantle.

                Comments about LEGO The Hobbit An Unexpected Gathering (79003):

                Bilbo may not be enjoying his unexpected visited by 13 dwarfs but Lego fans definitely will. This is the best starter set to get if you are a fan of the Hobbit or the Lord of the Rings, brilliantly detailed and great mini figures! Comes with Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo Baggings, and 4 dwarfs: Balin, Dwalin, Bofur and Bombur. Pros: -Great cosy hobbit hole -Good minifigs -Hard to find/exclusive pieces -4/13 of the dwarfs of the Hobbit -Lots of accessories -Great set to get Cons: -Not very accurate -Little pricey -Not very big -Pretty hard to access/get to

                Comments about LEGO The Hobbit An Unexpected Gathering (79003):

                The front yard is really detailed, with a miniature garden and a bench to rest on (and some other things). The flowers are a nice touch too. There's not a lot of room in the yard to do gardening, but it's no trouble at all to add some extra plates. If they included more room then the set would look rather empty and sorry. The fence is decorated with wood grain stickers, and has a smoothly operating gate. The detail on the outside of the hobbit hole really blows me away. The round windows are very well done and the hill and tree look natural and lush. It's somewhat hard for a minifig to walk through the door, but then again it's made for short hobbits. I like the design of the chimney. The large window is really brilliantly made, using common pieces to create an uncommon shape. The interior is also a bit cramped for six characters to dance in, but they all fit at the table without jostling each other. Bilbo has prepared so much food that it doesn't all fit on the table, but some could be kept warm over the fireplace while the rest can go in that barrel over there. Unfortunately the minifigures' leg stick to the chairs when you pick them up, so you'll have to separate the two and return the chair to it's original place. There's a nice broom by the door to sweep up after the guests and also some mysterious antiques lying on shelves that Bilbo must have inherited.... Finally, he has a nice desk set up in front of the window to work on his maps and the red book. There are a couple loose cherries that will be jostled from their places at the table if you move the set around a lot, so I suggest building this set where you plan to keep it.
