Lego Lord of the Rings Shelob Attacks 9470
As Sam is forced away from Frodo, Gollum takes him deep into Cirith Ungol knowing exactly who lurks deep within, Shelob the hungry spider! As Frodo loses Gollum he gets tangled up in her silver web, you will have to use the light of Earendil and his sword to try and fight her off but don’t worry as you can also get Sam to come to the rescue and help out to! Lets take a closer look at the Lord of the Rings Shelob Attacks 9470.
The shelob Attacks Lego 9470 set has been based on the scene from the third movie (The Return of the King) where Frodo trust’s the wretched gollum but unknown to him, he has lured him into the lair of the Shelob who is always hungry! Trapped by her web there is no way out and she is ready to attack, using the light of Earendil frodo manages to see her off but only for a short while. The ancient spider then stuns frodo, sam comes to his rescue and attacks the shelob with his sting sword! This Lego 9470 set includes 3 minifigures: Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee and Gollum.
Frodo Baggins minifigure who has a double sided face wears a dark grey cloak, has dark brown legs, a reddish brown jacket and waistcoat on just like his character in the movie (Elija Wood) he has brown curly hair. As you will notice this is not the same Frodo as the one in the Attack at weathertop set.
In the words of Frodo ‘I want to hear more about Sam, Frodo wouldn’t have got far without Sam.’ and when he rescues him after the Shelob attack this is exactly the case! The samwise minifigure wears a typical hobbit outfit with a light brown top buttoned all the way up, he also wears his bag around him – you know to protect all the elven bread! He has a hair piece and is always ready to fight for good!
Gollum as you would expect is in a crouching position and has articulated arms, the main colour of his body is in tan and he wears his brown undergarment. Gollum has ears on either side of his head and he is pulling a very evil looking face while bearing his little bent sharp teeth. One of the main features which stands out are the big wide blue eyes and 5 or so strands of painted on hair.
The shelob figure is pretty big measuring 7 inches – long we are crawling at just the thought of this! she can be hung up if you want by using the winch, featuring a black body with long brown legs each with a black point at the end – you really don’t want to get her in a bad mood!
Overall as much as we are quivering at just the thought the Shelob spider really does make the set unique, we love the Gollum minifigure especially as he had poseable legs and they have even added on the few head of hairs he actually has! We are glad that you finally get a samwise gamgee minifigure as he seems to be missing in all the other set.
This is one of the smaller sets and we were surprised that Lego decided to pick this scene instead of other bigger ones from the movie, however we have to say it is a pretty cool kit. Part of the new LOTR collection which is being launched in August you can see why these are going to be a massive hit over Christmas 2012.
