So you have created your Lego version of the Lonely Mountain and all it needs is a big dragon, some gold and a few dwarves as aperitifs. The Lego merchandise machine has not been skimping on The Hobbit products, but until now a set containing the dragon Smaug and his lair has been missing.
Well, you can start using those red pieces you collected for something else, maybe a hobbit firetruck. The Hollywood Reporter revealed such a set is on its way. LEGO: The Hobbit – The Lonely Mountain is being unveiled at Comicon San Diego this week, coinciding with the first unveil of the third Hobbit movie, The Battle of the Five Armies. Here are the details:
Lego: The Hobbit – The Lonely Mountain is a 866-piece set that comes with five mini-figures — Bilbo Baggins, Balin the Dwarf, Dwalin the Dwarf, Ori the Dwarf and Gloin the Dwarf. And then there is Smaug, who comes with translucent fiery breath, scales, giant wings, sharp claws, spiky tail and poseable joints.
The Lair of Smaug will showcase a secret door, an Arkenstone-encrusted throne, golden nuggets, treasures, assorted mining tools, conveyor belt, chain pulley to raise and lower bucket, furnace with a light brick, melting pot and torches with translucent flames. The set is to due to hit stores this fall and retail for $129.99.
Unfortunately Kervyn and Darryn will be saddened to hear there are no plans for a Duplo version.
