LEGO Set Review: An Unexpected Gathering

Set #: 79003 Pieces: 652 MSRP: $69.99 I recently had a chance to put together the LEGO® set I received for Christmas: “An Unexpected Gathering” from The Hobbit. It was a great looking set and I was really excited to check it out, but I didn’t expect to like it quite as much as I… Read more »
