I just got this set, along with the council of Elrond(which I already wrote a review for), and it is amazing! I'll go through each part of the set. The gate -both doors can open and close -A nob can be twisted, so the gate will be locked -A barrel, torch, and bottle lay on a platform near the top of the gates -some on the larger spikes on top of the gate are rubber -simple rock structure on the left side of the gate The tower -There is a 'secret' entrance on the lowest level of the tower -a scull and some bones litter the floor of the tower -The second floor has 2 rocks, for the catapult -The top has one last rock, the catapult itself(which is attached by 1 stud), and a torch Gandalf the white -NEW head, one smiling expression, one yelling expression -NEW Rubber conjoined hair/beard piece(warning: The hair sticks to the head, and can be tricky to take off) NEW body featuring a brown belt, and a silver cloak clasp Aragorn -double sided cape, one side black, one side red -NEW gondor armor torso and legs, featuring the white tree of gondor, a brown/silver belt, all on a dark blue over coat -same head, hair, and sword as original Aragorn Mouth of Sauron -definatly an interesting choice, considering he was only in the extended versions of the movie, and most kids will not have read the books -NEW helm piece, which I might add, is quite amazing -Very large mouth, with no eyes -black robes, with a grey belt, and silver highlights Morannan orcs -Same orcs as in the orc forge set -One has a uruk helmet and a flail, while the other has an old sword The eagle -NEW eagle, and one of the highlights of the set -crimson mold, with some darker feathers on the wings -yellow eyes - orange beak -WARNING: the legs to not, thus to not hold a minifigs in their talons(add a simple minifig back plate, like the one on star wars slave leia) All in all, this is a great set! To have the full gate, you need two of the sets. You build the first to the instructions, then build the tower of the second set to the instructions. You connect the tower of the second to the full model of the first. Then you use the extra gates as walls coming off of either side of the towers. Any who, the minifigs are great, and so is the set, so go, go buy it, right now!!

I thoroughly enjoy LEGO LOTR and know essentially as much as Tolkien about it; that said - WHERE IS THE OTHER TOWER? How did this set get made with 1 tower? That aside; why are not there 2 towers? (Yes I said it twice because there should be 2 towers!) I truly would have preferred a correct set with 2 towers, and would have paid maybe $10 more for it at the most - this set is borderline overpriced (though nothing like the Jabba's SailBarge...). I did like that it comes with the mouth of Sauron, but with this being THE Black Gate there are practically no troops; an armored Troll would have been highly appropriate here also. LEGO: the reason why people like LOTR so much is because of the battles - please include MORE soldiers from both sides in the battle scenes (like 3 of each minimum)...getting a couple of Gondorian knights would have been wonderful. Perhaps also Pippen in Gondorian battle attire, and Gandalf's Shadowfax also.

          We love this set. It took my husband and me about 3 hours to put it together, but we were also watching a movie at the same time. Regardless, most of the pieces are small which makes for a lot of nice detail.

                LOVE THIS NEW SET. The black gate set has 6 minifigs, counting the eagle, most of these figs are exclusive. The new Gandalf, Aragorn, and the mouth of sauron are exclusive and really cool. The eagle is nice and so are the orcs. The set itself isn't too hard to build, has a nice number of pieces, and has really good playability. Definitely recommend this to everyone.

                Battle at the Black Gate Review!

                Comments about LEGO The Hobbit Battle at the Black Gate (79007):

                This set is fantastic and is sadly the last of the Lord of the Rings theme. The gate which is the highlight but may not be the main reason you buy the set is detailed. The figures Gandalf the White, Aragorn in Gondor armor, and Mouth of Sauron figure are exclusive in this set. We Also get two neat Mordor Orcs which are always fun to get more of. One of the great eagles is included in this set which is super cool and may be the cheapest way to pick it up in a set, unless the Battle of the Five armies set from the new Hobbit film ends up to be cheaper, is nice. If I had one complaint which seems to be reoccurring (whit good reason) is that the gate needs another tower to really have an accurate representation like in the movies but none the less it is very cool. I highly recommend this set for any avid Lego Lord of the Rings or anyone who wants to have some sort of cool castle type model. I hope this review is helpful and gave you enough information on this pretty cool set from this pretty cool theme from Lego.

                For Frodo!

                Comments about LEGO The Hobbit Battle at the Black Gate (79007):

                So my brother's friend just got this set not too long ago, so I went over one time to check it out with the two of them, and it's not a bad set, though forty or fifty dollars is much more reasonable than sixty. However, With rare minifigures and most of all: a Great Eagle, the price is excused. THE BLACK GATE: It's almost like a miniature Isengard. It is built mostly with black pieces (who would have thought?), and is made up of the gate itself and a lookout tower. The tower has room for anyone and has a mini catapult on it. Between the gate and the tower, the set can open/fold in about three different ways, depending on what you're doing with it. It's a great bad guy fortress and is the same price as Weathertop, so the real question is what figures you prefer... MINIFIGURES: -Mordor Orcs: There are two in the set and the only ones that aren't completely exclusive. They are much the same as the Hunter Orcs from Attack of the Wargs, except the leg printing is different. One comes equipped with a Uruk helmet and sword, and another has a spear. Great for boosting up your evil army. -The Mouth of Sauron: So far, this is the closest we get to a LOTR Sauron figure. This guy is actually only seen in the extended version of The Return of the King, and is quickly killed by Aragorn. He is in black robes and cape, a steel helmet just a bit like the Witch-king's, and has a sword. He is, as the name implies, only the mouth of Sauron, so his head is literally just a strange, long-toothed mouth on a pale, wrinkled head with no other ordinary features. He also has a black horse to ride, the same as that of the Ringwraiths. A nasty villain for our fellowship. -Aragorn: This version is exclusive here. He has the same long brown hair and regular or angry face as before, but is now dressed in the outfit of the king of Gondor. He has blue and silver armor/robe printing, and a red cape. He has his sword, as well, of course. -Gandalf the White: We've seen Gandalf quite often, so its a relief to have this version of him. He now has white robes and cape, and the same smiling head as before, though his hair/beard piece now resembles that of Saruman, save for it is fully white. He has a white staff. -Great Eagle: Only seen in one other set (that is 250 bucks, so you do the math). He is his own mold and is kind of like the pteradactyl in that he has studs on his back for any figure to ride on him. His feet can connect to a LEGO surface or pick something up because of that. Normally, I would say he should have been a bit bigger, but since the Wargs are still the size they are, no reason to change only one of them. (Speaking of which, why on earth was one of these not in Attack of the Wargs? I mean, that's how Thorin and Bifur and all the rest get away in the first place. It's kind of like Boga the lizard missing in the Wheel's a lost cause without them.) OVERALL: A good set, a little overpriced but with great, exclusive figures that outrun the money.

                This set has a lot of great features like the gate has a lock and the tower has a small entrance door. Pros: exclusive Mouth of Sauron character, Aragorn in Gondor armor, Gandalf the white, Two new Mordor Orcs, a eagle, Nice details on the gate like spears on the backside. Cons: not enough Evil characters, I would have like a troll or a Fellbeast, Aragorn has a normal sword, not his legendary sword, Anduril, no pippin or merry in gondor and Rohan armor, need a second tower. Overall I would give this set a 4.8.

                I have to agree with silver5575 [on page 4 at the moment] the set is kind if small and should have had another tower, and in the movie the towers were HUGE. Although I love the new print on the horse and the secret entrance.

                Battle at the Black Gate!

                Comments about LEGO The Hobbit Battle at the Black Gate (79007):

                When I saw this set on the LEGO store, I instantly wanted to buy it! Having my favorite battle location from the Lord of the Rings on my shelf was a dream come true. When I finally purchased the set and finished building it, I noticed it was smaller than it looked on the LEGO website. It was a minor issue, and it doesn't bother me too much anymore. The main reason to get this set is because of the minifigures. We get two simple Mordor orcs. We also get three exclusive minifigures: Gandalf the White, Aragorn (Royal Armor) and The Mouth of Sauron! Gandalf the White is much cooler than the dozen Gandalf the Greys I already have. The new Aragorn is obviously the best Aragorn out of the two. The Mouth of Sauron is my favourite LEGO Lotr minifigure by far!!! We also get an eagle, the cheapest way to get one, the other way being The Tower of Orthanc The Black Gate is a very detailed set. It has got many small pieces bumping up the price. Most of these pieces are actually used on the gate itself. The gate opens and closes very smoothly and even has a lock to close it. The tower at the side doesn't have much playability except an awkward opening flap at the bottom and a rotating catapult at top. It still looks really good! Overall, I think you should buy this set while you still can. It really looks good on a shelf and is arguably the best LEGO Lotr set for minifigures. The Black Gate may be small, but really is worth buying for collectors!!!
