Gandalf Finally Arrives!,

This review is from: LEGO The Lord of the Rings 9469: Gandalf Arrives (Toy)
This is one of the smaller, more affordable sets from the Lego Lord of the Rings collection and it is a great little set. It comes with an easy-to-follow instruction booklet and it's quite simple to build. The finished product depicts Gandalf arriving in the Shire on a horse-drawn cart, complete with his famous fireworks, and Frodo ready to greet him. Both minifigures are a good likeness to their film counterparts; Gandalf has a grey beard, hat and cloak and carries a staff whilst Frodo is perfectly hobbit-sized (smaller than usual Lego characters) with a giant book to read. Frodo has two facial expressions (happy/worried), the horse has movable legs and the cart contains a letter, fireworks and a large carrot. While this is a small set it is good value for money for two key characters and it will make a great add-on for the larger sets available. Any Lord of the Rings fan will enjoy it.
