Review Time - 79000 Riddles for the Ring
Hello and Welcome to Review Time! Today, I will be reviewing set 79000 of The Hobbit theme.
About this creation


First Impressions - Well.. looks like another Hobbit set. As my first Lego set in... half a year, I don't expect too much, aside from a few nice pieces.

Cover Judgement(I look at the box and make a judgement) 4/10



And here we have the pieces. Looks like a neat myriad of rocks... bones.. and what is this?



Oh yes! TWO Stings and TWO rings?! Wow... good deal! Well, now to the build..

Time passes...



Gollum's boat is complete! It's a neat little distraction, but hardly a set point. I'll include it with the main build.

Time passes...



Still building...



Still Building... not much here, but it seems to have some kind of a function. More good stuff is yet to come.

Time passes...



And here we have the set, complete! Gollum and Bilbo challenge each other with riddles as I take more Pictures.









With a part of the rocks and a twist of a knob...



The Ring is revealed!

Gollum: That wasn't in the movie precious!!

Bilbo: Or in the book.....



And finally, my judgment.

Design - 7/10 - The set, despite being very small, has a nice, asymmetrical look to it.

Pieces - 7/10 - I could get the rock pieces for a small price on Bricklink, but to get TWO stings, TWO rings, and Bilbo along with it all is much cheaper.

Playability - 3/10 - Sail Gollum's boat around.. or reveal the ring, it's nice, but not anything that you would get the set for.

Price - 5/10 - Cheap for the parts.. but still, it's $9.99.

Overall - 5.2/10 - It's a great set for display, or for pieces.

And what will I do with it? I'm using the Swords and the rocks for Lands of Mython, a castle group, and Bilbo and Gollum for my collection.

Speaking of LOM...



I'll see you soon, but this time with a new free build!

Thanks for Viewing! Comments and critics and Welcome!


God Bless!

Neat little review. I must say, it's a nice little set for the pieces, some good playability, too. :)
