Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dol Guldur This is by far the largest Lego Hobbit set I've built as it consists of 797 pieces. The set includes six minifigures (seven if you count the skeleton), two of which are exclusive to the set (the Necromancer and Radagast). There is an abundance of play features in this set: a statue that has a base which opens up, a revolving wall, a swinging blade trap, a catapult, falling skulls, a spider web, and a cage (with a skeleton in it) that can be dropped on top of a wizard or an orc. My favorites are the statue and the skeleton cage. The set is very sturdy and can be picked up without shedding bricks all over the floor. The fortress wall is hinged and can be bent slightly. The build is not too difficult and there is very little repetition, since almost all parts of the fortress differ from each other. The most time-consuming phase of the build for me was applying the stickers, some of which are quite large. The mechanism for the falling skull trap could be a bit sturdier (the vine is a bit flimsy for the job). Also, one has to be very careful when building the trap in order to avoid the cradle/tray getting stuck with adjacent bricks when it is lowered down again. In my opinion, the fortress could have been a bit higher, since it is so very high in the movie, and I wish the set had included a section of a bridge that leads into the fortress. I, personally, did not like the combination of the interchangeable skeleton cage and catapult and I think the catapult should have been placed elsewhere. The Necromancer figure would be more intimidating had it been printed using glow-in-the-dark paint. Other than that, "Dol Guldur Battle" is nice set for battle-loving Hobbit fans. I recommend combining this set with "Dol Guldur Ambush" (79011) to further extend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "That thing is not from the world of the living" Dol Guldur is one of my favorite locations among the world of Middle-Earth, only because of its mysterious past and dark atmosphere. LEGO did a spectacular job with bringing Dol Guldur to life with this set. Azog the Defiler and Radagast the Brown are individually some of the coolest characters in the world of LEGO I've ever seen. From the stain on the hair of Radagast to Azog's enormous physique, it's all there! Including the Necromancer's darkly presence. The overall setting of this set is just phenomenal. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lord of the Rings My grandsons are reading the Trilogy with their Dad and really enjoyed building these and playing with them. My son started with Lego at a young age and the grandsons followed. I feel they teach reading directions, creativity, and imagination. How can you top that?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite hobbit lego set so far ;) This is a great lego and includes many traps and figs. It is very worthet but it is slightly overpriced. This wasn't to hard of a build, but a fun build because of all the cool traps. The Figs in this lego set are great and i recommend this to all hobbit lovers. Here are the figs. Azog- Azog's design is pretty good and is hammer is well done. Gandalf the Grey- Who doesn't love Gandalf the only problem with Gandalf is his hair tends to fall off. The Necromancer- Personally I love the Necromancer so I was psyched when they had The Necromancer. The Orcs- They are ok nothing that special about them. Radagast- I love Radagast's design. The hat is nice and his clothes are good. Now Here are the Pros and Cons Pros:The statue that has the gold ring in it is great! The sliding knife. good minifigs Great traps especially the skull that drops. Cons: Gandalf's hair falls of a lot To many stickers Doesn't look big enough unless you get Dol Guldur Ambush. Thats all i can think off! Guys this is a great fun set one of the things thats good about it is there are many ways you can model it. This is a great set and i recommend it to hobbit lovers and castle lovers. This has a spooky feel to which is good for a lego Get It I suggest it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from hill of sorcery! the hill of sorcery is one of the coolest places in the hobbit enjoying it in Lego form is wonderful. the figures to start off with are great. dont really know about the necromancer might of looked better as a totally black figure . or they could have built him in his floating dark blob mode. the azog is great really it would have been nice to give azog a hand that actually looks right. the hand could be four metal looking prongs curved to hold a weapon in the middle. i sure am glad i didn't spend a boat load of cash trying to get him when he was a comic con exclusive. i would have liked it more if this was 90 dollars and featured the dol guldur ambush then we could have gotten 4 sets different not 4 sets but only three displays because they attach. good radagast figure dont really know why hes there but an extra figure never hurt anyone. this is a pretty good set over all ( hit that like button if your exited for the battle of the five armies sets on oct 15 !)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is undoubtedly...a trap! What a great set! It's not often I can say that this set's price was just about right, but given the great, exclusive minifigures included with the Hill of Sorcery, I don't think the economy would have allowed for much better than $70 bucks. DOL GULDUR: The castle of the slowly growing Sauron may not look like much, but tons of tricks and traps lie inside. These include: a rotating wall to reveal the Necromancer, some swinging swords behind a spider web, a catapult, a cage hanging over the tower, iron gates, and an opening statue. Because of all these and the minifigures, fantastic playability ensues. The set goes great with the Mirkwood trees and the Dol Guldur Ambush, as well as Weathertop and the Warg Attack if you already have those. Excellent job, LEGO. MINIFIGURES: -Gandalf: Gandalf has been included in several other sets, of course, but to my knowledge, not exactly like this. He has gray hair and a cape both, and is armed with his staff and sword, which is less often seen. If you don't have him, good set to get him in. If you do, he's still just as important. -Radagast the Brown: I can honestly say I never expected LEGO to make him in a set, least of all in a set below $100, but here we are! Radagast has a smiling face and an angry face which slides under a beard/hat piece, decorated with appropriate colors and a little bit of bird 'stuff' on one side, which is very movie accurate. He is dressed in his brown wizard robes, and is armed with a staff topped with a blue stone (like the one he uses to save Sebastian the hedgehog in An Unexpected Journey). Awesome minifigure. -Azog the Defiler: Given that the pale Orc appeared as an exclusive figure at Comic Con, I didn't expect a set with him either, but once again, LEGO surprised me with this set. Azog has an evil grin on his scarred torso that slides over the initial upper body piece. His skin is tannish (could've been white, but it's all good), and his left hand is replaced by an exclusive claw piece. He is armed with his large club and goes great with any Hobbit set, but especially this one and the Warg Attack. Awesome figure; put together with Radagast, he makes the whole set worth it. P.S. Just in case you weren't planning this, I would love to see Bolg in a Hobbit 3 set :) -Gundabad Orcs: We've all seen these before. The two in this set have Uruk swords and a mace, and have no hair. Along with the two from the Ambush plus any other's you may have, you've got a great army of evil. -The Necromancer: This ghostly figure is not what he seems. He is black with greenish printing on his face and torso to make him look like a ghoulish apparition, and I believe is based off the scene in An Unexpected Journey when Radagast has a close encounter with him. He goes great with the Ringwraiths from Weathertop, as well as any other Nazgul or Sauron related figure that may appear in future sets? Awesome, rare villain that is sure to keep Gandalf on his toes! OVERALL: What a set! Next to the Lone Ranger train chase, I'd say it's the best set $70 or over that I've gotten in a long time. I would recommend this to any LEGO Hobbit fan. Sorry, side note: LEGO, I have to ask again why a lot of my reviews have not been appearing after the designated two weeks. And I'm talking about reviews I made a month ago. These include the Malibu Mansion, Ghostbusters, the Rancor Pit, and the General Grievous Wheelbike. I'd sure appreciate seeing them or receiving an alert as to why they aren't there so I can rewrite them if necessary. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME SET This is one of my fav. sets because it has so much detail and a lot of cool minifigs. The building comes in three sections with two staircases. The Radagast figure comes with a really cool hat and feather and the Gandalf the gray figure comes with a cape a none-attached beard and hair. The necromancer is black with only part of his head and chest being green-blueish. The Azog figure has a twistable hook and a big club. The orcs come with printed thorns and the leader comes with a shoulder pad with thorns. The Building also has a cool function that allows the person to drop skulls on passing figures. The last thing is that the cage can be moved onto the tower or on the ground.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Set for Hobbit Fans! I loved this set! The castle allows for great play features. If you flip the wall the Necromancer pops out, portraying a crucial part of the movie. Azog and Radagast are amazing, and you can only get them in this set. Pros- Exclusive Radagast and Necromanser figures. Catapult Spider web Huge sword trap Can be combined with 79011 Dol Guldar Ambush There are no cons, but I wouldn't recommend this for someone that is under 8, unless helped by an adult. Great Set Lego!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of play features Although this not be my favorite set in the new Hobbit wave (Lake Town gets my vote), this should be popular with kids. This is the set to get if you want Azog. He is menacing and a bit larger than other minifigures. Radagast is another exclusive figure to this set. He has some nice details like the feather in his cap and his printing. Gandalf is the same as the other versions with hair that have come out. There are two Gundabad orcs, which are decent bad guys. I do however prefer the two from the smaller Dol Guldur Ambush set due to the hair and weapons selection. Then you have the Necromancer. I do not complain often, but am disappointed with the way the minifigure was done. It just seems incomplete and is lacking the menacing quality he should have. The build is interesting. Although dark grey is the dominant color, there is not too much repetition in the build. The kids will really enjoy the play features such as a hidden sword attack, a hidden ring to discover, a cage which can be released, a catapult, and a turning feature revealing the Necromancer. The play features combined with the minifigures should keep the kids busy. The smaller Dol Guldur Ambush set can attach to this one and expand the play possibilities. This will also give you more orcs to add give it a more battle atmosphere. Even if the prospective buyer does not know the Hobbit storyline, this set should appeal to castle fans. You have a large ruin of a fortress, two wizards, and some interesting badguys. Overall, not a bad set, although I tend to favor Lake Town and the Mirkwood Elf Army.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set, even better minifigs Great set to build, I'd say it was an easy to average build. Lots of little extras that you don't really notice at first glance when looking at the box. I loved the detail put into Azog and Radagast. They were definitly the highlight of the set for me. Pros - Minifigures - Radagast, Azog and the Necromancer - Reasonable price - Can be attached to 'Dol Guldur ambush' - Plenty of playability for young children Cons - To many stickers - would rather they be printed. - Might be a bit harder to build for children Overall I definitely think this set is worth getting even though its not the most iconic build from the movie but if you're a hobbit or LOTR fan its definitly worth getting. Cheers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AZOG!!! Great set, best in the Desolation of Smaug subtheme, and when connected to Dol Guldur Ambush, it is even better. And lovin' Azog!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We are legion! - Azog When I look at this set there is one sentence that comes to mind, and that is, more then meets the eye, there are lots of little things that are hidden, such as the sliding wall that reveils the necromancer, and the sword trap, it has good design, good playability and great figs! Though radagast wasn't even in this scene in the movie, but it's great that we got him anyway. Now to the pros and cons. Pros, Awesome figs! Good design More then meets the eye! Lots of good accessories Cons, Gandalfs hair tends to fall off because of cape. Now, one thing that I am very impressed with is radagasts beard printing and how it has the bird poo on the side of his beard. I also like azog and his big weapon. It isn't so exiting that we got gandalf, though he is necessarie to this set. Thanks for reading!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Dungeons of the Necromancer Dol Guldur was Sauron's stronghold in Mirkwood and now it captures the spookiness in Lego Form. The set was rather quick and easy to build. There is no real specific feature which stands out in this set, nor does it have the gravitas as depicted in the films and books. Pros - Comes with Radagast, The Necromancer and Azog - Good for castle builders - Good Price Cons - It's a ruined wall, could have had more uniqueness. - Stickers - Looks small after build, but made up after buying smaller set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BATTLE READY So happy I got this set! Dol Guldur Battle is an awesome piece for any fan of the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings. The price point is a little high (or seems it- 11c/piece) but the set is visually impressive and great to play with! One of the greatest parts is the accuracy to the movie and the play features. There is plenty of ways to play with the set, and it is durable when moving around and positioning in different places. There are a lot of stickers you have to apply yourself- personally I don't mind but other people might! The building process is fun and requires attention, and the set does not take long to assemble for a larger one. The only flaw in the set is you can't stand Gandalf up in the hanging cage, like in movie (you can if you sit him down). The mini figures are INCREDIBLE! I just died when I saw them all lined up. I can't say which one is my favourite.... a battle between Radagast and Azog (no pun intended!) The detail and accuracy of each figure is mind-blowing, especially Azog. I am so happy LEGO gave us some really cool figures in this set! If you have any doubts about purchasing this set, throw them away. Dol Guldur Battle is a set every LEGO fan must have! Peace out! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this set is awesome! oh yeah, I just want to say something... the stuff on Radagast's beard is lichen, not bird poo. it's got a pretty good value for something that's 70 bucks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set, but I just have one problem with it. When I first saw this set I was impressed by the Radagast and the Pale Orc minifigures, but really disappointed by the necromancer minifigure. After seeing the Hobbit- the desolation of Smaug, I not only learned that the figure was a terrible match of the actual character, but also Lord Sauron. This was LEGO's one chance to have a Lord Sauron minifigure and they screwed up big time. Other than that rather disappointing part of the set, it is really good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best values ever! DEFINITELY AMAZING! I am actually my Mom's son. A few months ago, I saw this set on YouTube, and i was stunned. I then forgot about it, but when i saw it in my LEGO Magazine a week or two ago, I figured this set was one of the best LEGO Models ever! The set has an amazing value, and the set itself is extremely accurate and detailed! The main highlight, in my opinion, is the fact that you get, for the first time ever, AZOG! This figure is exclusive to the set, and is slightly modified from the $800 - $1,000 exclusive SDCC Minifigure! You also get Radagast for the first time ever, as well as the Necromancer of Dol Guldur! All three of these figures are exclusive to the set, as well! The fact that you can combine this with the Dol Guldur Ambush tops it off! There is absolutely no reason that a LEGO fan shouldn't pick up this set! I rate it a definite 10, and I recommend it for all of the reasons, and age groups! Keep it up, LEGO!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "What if it's a trap?"-Radagast Sorry Radagast, but this set is most defiantly not a trap! I picked the new Hobbit sets up before the LEGO store got them, and I'm really pleased with all of them! The set -The largest part of the set is a three hinged wall, with a tower on one end, and two stair cases jutting out from it. On top of the tower there is a spot to hook one of two thing onto. You could hook a catapult, or a rock structure that can drop a cage, with a skeleton in it! Next to the tower there a doorway, the back blocked by a spiderweb. Next is the center room. On either end there are staircases, both leading to the upper level of Dol Guldur. If you twist the torch on the upper level the wall below it will rotate-to reveal the necromancer! The final room is a gateway, with a piece on top to drop skulls. Lastly, there is a statue, that can open up to reveal a ring, most likely a dwarven ring. Minifigs -Gandalf: Gandalf is the same as in the summer Lord of the rings sets, with a double sided face, a staff and a sword. -Radagast: One of the best parts of this set is Radagast! He is a very detailed minifigure, and even has the bird droppings running down his beard! -Azog: Another great minifig, this is that 'comic-con' exclusive...not so exclusive anymore more! With a sculpted head and an exclusive hand piece, this is one unique minifig! -Gundabad orcs: This orc redesign is great! These orcs look pretty fearsome! One has shoulder armor, but neither have hair. -The necromancer: While a pretty scary minifig, he didn't look like this in the first Hobbit film. Perhaps we see a clearer image of him in the Desolation of Smaug, or maybe LEGO let some imagination into this guy! Overall: I really like this set! While it may not be the most iconic, like Bag end, or Orthanc, it is full of great minifigs, lots of extra weapons, and some cool functions! Plus, it can connect with Dol Guldur ambush for twice the fun! P.S. Sorry I can't upload some pictures, I keep getting an error!
