Are the Hobbit sets (like the one Scott posted) scheduled to hit this year yet?  I've been looking at the LOTR sets and considering getting those (I did pick up the smaller Gandalf/cart set), but I think if I could only afford one larger set I'd like the set pictured above.  Has anyone picked up the other LOTR sets?

Sweet...I'm guessing the Spider Rescure and Barrell Escape were pushed from Movie 1 to Movie 2 and Lego had to cover their asses.  I am really looking forward to this movie.

That's the consensus from the interwebs.

Looks like you have to buy all the sets to get the 13 dwarves, but at least there's no double dips like there was with the LOTR sets and the Fellowship.

I've not seen any out at stores, but saw Hobbit action figures at K-Mart, my first sighting outside TRU.

Gotta admit I'm kinda anxious to see the sets in person.

I saw these sets at our WM this weekend, and man was I tempted to pick some of them up.  I did get the smallest "Riddles" set, but that's it for now.  If we weren't so tight with Christmas coming up, I would have liked to grab more.  All of them are nice, but I really want the Unexpected Party set with Bag End.  That's going on the Christmas list :).  I haven't seen them anywhere else at retail yet.

Anyone know there was a Mirkwood elf bagged figure available at TRU just last month?  Anyone happen to have one?  I missed this somehow.  I almost missed the Gandalf out now actually, for me and the kids.  :(

Would love 3 of the Mirkwood elf but can't even find out if they're still available anywhere.  Only coming out last month, I figured they'd still be around.
