I have all the lego LOTR and Hobbit sets and I think this one of the best. The finished model looks great and you do get a nice amount minifigs. Five figs, eagle and horse. Of course the highlight is the Mouth of Suaron figure. He looks so good and I don't think will be available in any other set as he only appears in the black gate scene. So if want to collect all the figures a must have.
Pros: Rare black pieces Good amount of figs for prices Mouth of Sauron Exclusive Gandalf
Cons: Would be nice to be bigger even if it cost more
