Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite LOTR set to start out with The council of Elrond is an amazing set with great figs great detail and lots of weapons. This was a great set that I have been keeping my eye on for quite some time. This is a great set for LOTR fans or hobbit fans because if you save up your figs you can make a huge meeting which is fun to do. I love Frodo Baggins facial expression and it fits him perfectly. The one trap in this set is pretty good. I like how they have a table with the golden ring on it. The two different areas go together perfectly. For fans of intense lego fighting this set comes with a lot of weapons. I like the extra detail of the tree. Here are the Figs Figs: Elrond: I love this fig. I am a big fan of it's headset and it's cape. Hint: If you want Elrond to sit on a chair take off his cape. I like his clothing. I like the frown better than the smile! Arwen: Good fig. I love the hair and especially the dress. This is a great dress. Just Great! Frodo Baggins: I love this fig! The clothes are great but even better is the facial expression. Gimli: This fig is great and i love the helmet and the beard! I also am a big fan of the clothing. The only problem with this set is there are to many stickers. BUY IT IT IS AWESOME!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must-have set for your collection OK, first of all, how are you supposed to start adventure to destroy the ring? it comes with a brick separator (yes!) and some of my favorite characters. I like the elves, and Frodo actually has a unique sword, which, as you might recall, is sting. it is good to have at least one other Lord of the Rings set if you want this one, because there is no one to fight, and what adventure are they supposed to go on? But this set is definitely worth the money and is fun to build. I like that it has many features from the book and movie alike, especially the eye of Sauron catapult function. I would definitely get this set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Council of Elrond set is one of my favorite Lord of the Rings sets! Not only does it come with great characters, but the place itself is iconic. I own the entire Fellowship of the Ring minifigures from sets, and this one is where it all began. Pros: The minifigs are all great, The set has an awesome fling Gimli function, and Rivendell. That's all I can say! Cons: none. I always use The Council of Elrond no matter what Lord of the Rings scene I'm reenacting. It is a great edition to any LEGO Lord of the Ring fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elrond Back with another review. Lets dive in with the mini figures. Frodo is cool because he has an exclusive face print. Another Gimli really, give me Merry, He came in an overpriced set and it was at the point I really didn't get Middle Earth sets. I got into it When Hobbit Came out. Arwen is excellent mini figure, while I don't like the cheekbones on her face, at least I can cover it up with her hair. Elrond is the best figure in this set. He comes with a bicolored cape and an awesome mold which I think will be recolored for Galadriel later this year. Now onto the set. I love getting the elven sword and the orange leaves. You get a launching Gimli function, which the eye of Sauron is under it. This set is master display piece. Now onto the final verdict. Overall I give this set an A

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will take the Ring to Mordor. This is probably the most neutral LOTR set since Gandalf Arrives and Bag End (which is technically Hobbit, so...). While certainly necessary to bump this set down not just the usual ten bucks, but also another five, the well built Elven home and minifigs make it worth the cash. COUNCIL CHAMBERS: Now, when I first got this, several key pieces were missing, so I was unable to build the arches and roof, but when I saw my friend's I was still able to capture the well done Elven beauty (in the most LEGO sense, of course). Basically what I'm saying is: this really does capture the Rivendell theme. The Council area itself has a total of three chairs (for the three Council members included) that can rotate but are unfortunately decorated with stickers. The table in the center has a spot to hold the Ring, so that Gimli can try to break it, and then, using a push technique hidden under the floor, send him flying. Well done. MINIFIGURES: -Frodo Baggins: The most generic figure in the set, however a few key components make even him rare. Firstly, his head has two different expressions, a worried and an angry, when usually there is a determined and a stabbed-by-a-Ringwraith-or-spider face whenever he is wearing his brown adventure robes, which brings up the next point: this time he is without a cape (in Weathertop he had a green one, in Shelob's Lair a faded gray one). He has Sting and the Ring. -Gimli: We've seen the grumpy yet likable dwarf before in three sets: Moria, the Umbar ship and Helm's Deep, but it is refreshing (as it was with Legolas in Mirkwood Spiders) to see him in a cheaper set. His face is covered by a large brown beard and on top of that his dwarvish helmet. He has a mostly red and gray torso with short legs and is armed with an axe. Love this guy (John Rhys-Davies was also Sallah in Indiana Jones; speaking of which we really needed a Sallah figure in the Indy sets all those years ago, of course it's all in the past). -Elrond: I must say, LEGO did a fantastic job with this guy's facial features. When he has the narrowed eyebrow face, it looks spot-on. He has one of those fancy capes with a double colored side, one is tan and one is red. His torso is mostly red as well, with Elvish robe printing. He has a special brown Elvish hair piece, which also accounts for his pointy ears. This piece has a silver crown on it. He comes with one of those cool half sword half spear Elvish weapons that those from Rivendell and Lothlorien often use. Awesome, exclusive figure. -Arwen Evenstar: Who would have thought Liv Tyler would ever be made in LEGO? They did a great job on her figure, with a hair piece very similar to her father's but lacking the crown and a bit more feminine. She has a neutral face and a bit more of a determined face (as if she would be doing any fighting, but since she does come with a bow and arrow...), and periwinkle blue robes with Elvish printing. She has one of those long, extended and slanted brick pieces LEGO cleverly learned to use as women's dresses a while back. She is a great minifig that goes great with Aragorn but must be used to a bit of imagination given she has no action scenes in the film, but these are just LEGOs so go ahead and have at it....there hasn't yet been an Eowyn to tell her no. OVERALL: This is a good set, necessary for completing your LOTR figure collection but unless you have an imagination (most people with LEGOs do, of course) then don't expect much more than display. A little more overpriced than usual, especially if yours turns out to have some pieces missing, but it's still hard not to like it anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great,but...C'mon LEGO, more girls! Mostly I'm a Lego mom to a Lego obsessed 8yr-old. That said, I'm also a big LOTR fan and have a few LOTR and Hobbit Lego sets of my own. I love them all, details are great and mostly a good value. I look at these and see something that would have sent my childhood self into swoons of joy. But then I see something that I would have noticed as a kid, too. Where are the other female characters? I know there aren't many, but they're important. Where are Eowyn and Galadriel? This set has the only female LOTR character to be represented in Lego, and that alone makes it worth acquiring for any fan. It also makes it a little sad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Set It is a great set with very cool minifigures especially Elrond who has a new type of cloak witch is red on one side and orange on the other. The stand for the ring is very detailed but i thin kit is not to scale with the rest of the set. I like the new orange leafs. As it is now the set is priced perfectly but i would have payed more if it was a bit larger and had more minifigs. Or at least you could buy a sepreat assesery with more people (maybe everone that was at the counsil of Elrond if it was not to much to ask). Butover allthis is an awsome set and glad i got it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go Elrond !!! The minifigures are the best part of this set. Elrond is my favorite minifigure of all time,but it's kind of weird that Elrond has a smiling face, since you hardly ever see him smile in the movies. Gimli and Frodo are the same as in other sets. Arwen is exclusive but I would rather have a different minifigure like Legolas. This set should include some minifigures that can sit on the chairs. The elven architecture is awesome, as are the autumn leaves. There were two elven sword/spear things and two bows included. The photo online shows a brick separator, but there wasn't one included in the set. Is that supposed to be included with the set? If not then why is it in the photo? Overall, this is an awesome set and it is well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Bring forth the ring Frodo" I bought this set along with some other Lord of the Rings sets recently. It has minimal scenery, but definitely contains enough to show that it is Rivendell, and despite being a non-combat scene contains a ton of weapons. I will talk about each part of the set seperately. Frodo - Frodo is basicly the same as every other version, but has a different head piece, with an angry exppression as opposed to the ppoisoned, in fear wxppression on previous versions. Other than that the same but without a cloak. Gimli - Exactly the same but with a different axe (Of course he does, this one gets smashed to pieces in the movie) Arwen - The first time she has been made as a minifigure. Every part of her is exclusive to this minifigure, with a new hair piece, and new light blue torso and ress pieces. She is armed with an elven bow. Elrond - Probably the highlight of this set, he is again all exclusive. He has a new hair piece, new printing on his torso and legs, as well as an awesome double sided cape. He is armed with one of those golden elven sword staffs. Council area - The first part of the set you build, it has the only function in the set, to launch Gimli and show the eye of Mordor hidden beneath it. There are three chairs with stickers for the backs, I only wish it came with spare stickers so you could replicate the chairs and make a bigger scene. The pedestol with the ring,although it looks awesome, is, i think at least, a bit to tall, as Gimli can't actually reach it to smash the ring with his axe. Despite this it contains some nice golden elements. The last part is the tree which has the great new red orange leaves for autumn. Armoury - I'm not exactly sure what this is supposed to be, but as it has the little weapons rack I'm guessing it is an armoury (You get two stings, two bows, two elven swords and an axe in this set). It definitely has the word Rivendell written all over it, with the white und tan colour scheme and the arches. It has a tree growing out of it with another of the exclusive orange leaf pieces. Over all this is a great set, but mostly for display, as there aren't really many play features. I only wish it came with extra seats to seat the fellowship and the lords of middle earth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't miss this fantastic set. When I originally saw pictures of the 2013 lineup for Lord of the Rings sets I was disappointed at first glance of The Council of Elrond. I generally find small sets to be underwhelming, how I could not have been more wrong. There's something about this set that makes it perfect and in some ways my favorite of all things Middle Earth that has been released thus far. It could be the new colored leaves that are a MOCers dream or the gorgeous white arches that create the background of the set. Maybe it is the never before seen Arwen and her beautiful printing or perhaps Elrond who for many has never made it into their hands plus this version is superior to the last in many ways. Even Gimli who is available in other sets has never been so obtainable at such a low price point. This set has only weakness, being its playability. In its defence the scene which it is based on was not overly dramatic compared to many other instances and it still captures that scene perfectly a very affordable price. The "flash" of Sauron's Eye near the ring is a nice touch and shows the attention to detail that Lego captures so well. This should be a set you already own and any Middle Earth fan will probably have more then one for it's fantastic parts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring forth the Ring, Frodo. This set impressed me despite its dimunitive size and price of £29.99. It has brand new bricks and 2 exclusive figures. Frodo Baggins: Frodo is same except he has no cape and a new double sided head piece with a worried and an angry expression. His accessories are Sting and the Ring. Gimli: Gimli is also the same but has a medium sized axe. Arwen Evenstar: She is an exclusive miifigure and has new pieces. Her face has a frown and a normal expression. Arwen carries a bow and has a blue dress. Lord Elrond: The second exclusive minifigure included in the set. Elrond has a unique cape like Aragorn's where it has two different colours. The outside is red and the inside is brown. His head is double sided with a smile and an angry expression. All his parts are exclusive and he carries an Elvish spear. The first part of the set is the inside which has a weapon storage rack for two weapons that the minifigures carry with them. The roof is extremely detailed with tiles, new Elvish architecture and microfigure statues. Outside is the council room with three chairs for Elrond, Frodo and Gimli and in the centre is the table where the Ring is placed. Also included is a tree with new autumn coloured leaves on the trees. The feature in the set is the catapulting podium which re-enacts a scene in the movie where Gimli attempts to destroy the Ring with his axe but is launched back. Another accurate part of the set is Sauron's hidden eye which is also a part in the movie. Here is my conclusion: Minifigures: 10/10 Set: 9/10 Pros: Minifigures, features, new bricks, leaves. Cons: Stickers, price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Council of elrond First lets start with the minifigs Elrond:Probably my favorite figure because of his beautiful hairpiece and two colored cape.Arwen:A good minifig but I would have perfered leg pieces too.Frodo:Same frodo except no cape and a tired weary expression on his face.Gimli:I mainly bought this set because I didn't have him.I painfully noticed the absence of the larger two bladed axe. Now to the set .It is a beautiful little set with my favorite part being the elven arches.This set includes a lot of extra pieces including 1 Sting,1 Bow,and 2 rings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rivendell Nothing shouts out Lord of the Rings more than Rivendell. This set catches the charm and visuals from the film and let us hope there is more to come from Lego to attach to this set in the near future. The set comes with some nice unique pieces and also Elrond and Arwen which add to the expanding lord of the rings lego character collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RIVENDELL AT LAST!!!!! well, if it could only be bigger, (like a 100 dollar set versus 30) it would make it so much better, but overall, a really cool set. theres arwen and elrond, and the other two come in all of the sets, so their not so much fun. a lot more weapons than what it says it has, and also a cool euye o' sauron thingymabobber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a really great set This set comes with four minifigures (as you probably know), Elrond, Arwen, Gimli, and Frodo. Gimli comes in many other sets, but of course is very essential in this one especially. The Frodo in this set was very cool because he had a different head than all the other previous Frodos. Instead of a pained screaming face, this Frodo has an angry face, which all other Frodos have lacked until now. Elrond has really cool hair, with a nice crown. He also has a really awesome double-sided cloak. Arwen has nice hair as well, and she had some nice detailing. All figures had double sided faces. The set itself had really nice detailing. The trees were nice and sturdy, and looked really awesome. Unfortunately, the chairs messed up Elrond's cloak when he sits down. Other than that the chairs were really cool. One problem with this set is that other than the Gimli catapult it has no other functions, so after you use that, it can get boring fast, and so is the kind of set that won't get played with very often, but will sit and look very cool. About the Gimli Catapult. Although it is awesome when it works, the Gimli catapult is hard to set up. If you don't do it right, Gimli will knock over other characters or not fly at all. When it does work, however, Gimli will go flying a satisfyingly long distance, and the eye of Sauron will appear (gasp). Unfortunately, the eye of Sauron is a little bit annoying, as it gets in the way when you try to put the catapult back, making you have to adjust it constantly. Overall, I thought this set was really good mainly because of its looks and it's minifigures, which fully make up for it's slightly sub-par functions category.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent set! I have six LotR and The Hobbit sets so far, and this set is by far my favorite! although it does not have very much playability by itself, it is an important location in middle-earth and I really enjoy having it. The srchetecture of Rivendell looks great. There are nice arches and trees. I don't really care about exclusive peices, but if you collect them, this set has new orange leaf peices. The chairs are nice too, there are stickers for the designs on them though. It is also somewhat hard to keep a minifigure in one too, as the chairs only have studs to hold them in the back, not the front. The table looks nice too. The building and the open area for the chairs are detachable. The Gimli-throwing function doesn't work very well, Gimli doesn't go very far. The eye under the function peice looks nice, but you can kind of see the red when the Gimli-thrower is closed. Gimli nd Frodo are the same in every other set they are in (except for gandalf arrives), except Frodo doesn't have a cape. Elrond is awesome! he is my favorite minifigure so far, and by alot. He has awesome hair (which is rubber), he has an awesome upper body peice showing a red and gold jacket, he has an awesome lower body peice with nice printing of a continuation of his jacket, he has an awesome two sided face, one nutral and one slightly angry, and he has an awesome two-sisded cape. If figures like him came in every LotR set, I would buy them all (not really, I don't have that much money). I love this set and definitely think it is a must-have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming small set This Lord of the Rings set was fun to build and contains very unique features and minifigures. Of the new wave of sets, this is certainly one I had my eye on. There is a good variety of color and some new bricks which are so far exclusive to the set. Council of Elrond is the first set featuring the elven domain of Rivendell. There is just enough foliage and architecture to give a sense of the place. Many people will likely want to expand it in some way by adding more chairs or making more building and landscape structures. The most desired pieces will include the new orange tree branches as well as the gothic style arches. Some weapons are included, such as Frodo's Sting, elven bows, and the long elvish blades which enjoy a fair amount of popularity. Stickers are used for the chair designs. Also, as Elrond himself said, "Sauron has his eye fixed on Rivendell". this is also true in the set as an eye of Sauron sticker makes an appearance in a hidden spot. Playability is limited, as the Gimli launcher is the only action feature. Also, there are no bad guys. This set will probably appeal the most to older children and adult collectors who are interested in the Hobbit/Lord of the Rings. Four minifigures are in the set. Gimli and Frodo are mainly the same as in prior sets. Gimli's inclusion is of course due to the Gimli launcher feature where he tries to attack the ring with his axe and gets thrown back. Frodo is of course in the set because he brought the ring to Rivendell. Besides, this is the only Frodo minifigure in the new wave. I wish they had included Boromir in this set since he will have very limited opportunities to appear in future sets. Naturally, Elrond is in the set and will be a very popular figure. He has a multicolored cape and has a crown identifying his authority and stature among elves. Also appearing for the first time in a set is Arwen. She is presented nicely with a unique hairpiece. Other than the exclusion of Boromir, the only other criticism I have is this observation: You have three chairs in the set, yet NONE of the minifigures in the set are suited to actually be seated in them! Frodo and Gimli have the short legs, so they will not be sitting. Arwen has a sloping piece for her lower section instead of legs, so she will remain standing. Elrond can technically sit, but it messes up his cape. If you do not want his nice unique cape bent, he is best left standing. I suppose if they had added Boromir, we would get the same problem. You might want to bring in Aragorn and Legolas in from other sets to at least get someone in the chairs. Overall, a great set in terms of presentation. Some people will likely buy multiples of this to try and make the scene bigger. I would like to somehow try and make a "shards of Narsil" setup, a bedroom for Bilbo, and maybe a bridge at some point. For LOTR fans, it would seem that this is essential to have in the collection. Again, not much in playability, but it is great for display.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "We must send the Ring to the Fire"-Elrond I just picked up this set, along with the Black gate, and I am very pleased with it. I'll talk about each part individually. The council room -3 spinning chairs, with stickers on the back rests -golden table for the ring -great NEW orange leaf pieces -'launching' mechanism for when Gimli tries to destroy the ring with his axe -Under the 'launching' mechanism is a sticker of the eye of Sauron(to represent the movie scene right after Gimli's axe makes contact with the ring, when the eye of Sauron flashes across the screen for a second) The...weaponry(?) room -Nice little weapon stand that holds two weapons -great NEW arch pieces -a small tree growing out of the side of the building with another NEW orange leaf piece -the staircase is a bit fragile, and will fall off Frodo -AMAZING NEW face(honestly, one of the best parts of the set. The worried/weary expression works very well for him) -Same old Frodo, other than that, but with no cape Gimli -Same old Gimli here, but with a different axe Elrond -Great dark red/gold robes -double colored cape(one side orange, the other crimson) -One happy, one angry face(different from video game exclusive Elrond) -rubber hair(sometimes sticks to the head) Arwen -teal dress, with silver highlights -double sided head(one smiling, one frowning) -rubber hair Overall This is a great set, and fairly cheap, so I recommend it. The Elrond and Arwen minifigs are great, as is the new face Frodo has. The set is best when you have the rest of the fellowship, but still playable without. Also, the set has 2 stings, 2 elven swords, 2 bows, and 3 rings. All in all, get this set!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Want more This set is great if you are a LOTR fan not only do you get two exclusive mini figures but you also get a start design of Rivendell, this makes me want to buy more of this set or to design more from the pick a brick section to have even more playability
