The Hobbit LEGO Set

Geeks lucky enough to be in San Diego enjoying Comic-Con are starting to get the first looks at what LEGO has in store for the coming year, and so far some cool stuff has been revealed. Sets based on the upcoming move of The Hobbit, a pretty sweet new Star Wars set, and some new minifigures have all popped up online so far.

First off, Bag End from The Hobbit was unveiled, and it looks great. Due out in December, the Hobbit hole comes with six minifigures and is surprisingly awesome in LEGO form. I can’t wait to see what else LEGO has in store for the first Hobbit movie. Make sure to check out FBTB for a huge gallery of photos.

I’m not a collector of LEGO Star Wars sets, probably because they’ve been around so long that diving in feels too daunting, but this new Rancor Pit set really caught my eye. One of the best scenes in Return of the Jedi makes for an awesome little LEGO set.

LEGO aslo has some super cool Super Hero exclusive minifigures that I’ll probably never get to see in person. Expect to see these for crazy prices on ebay. Phoenix, Black Suit Spider-Man, Shazam, and Bizarro are all available at Comic-Con this year, and they all look great.
