I got this set even though I was a little skeptical about the price to piece ratio (~400 pcs. for $60 is not very good) but I was blown away by the set. The build is great, features nice landscaping and a cool technique to create the curved wall. The minifigures are awesome and it features two of the new lego horses! I heartily recommend this set for Lego fans and LotR fans alike!!
Intricate Details & Full of Character(s)!

Ok, this set is just awesome. First the characters: Frodo, Aragorn, Merry, and the Ringwraiths. A fantastic cast of characters that adds considerably to the entire Lord of the Rings LEGO series. Plus, the Ringwraiths ride on the new LEGO horses, which are beautifully designed specifically for the wraiths. These new horses have the ability to stand in a rearing position, which is a very welcome improvement. Frodo comes with the One Ring, and the sword Sting. The set itself is fantastic, a unique spiraled staircase, secret chamber inside, weapons racks, trap door, bolt-firing mechanism, campfire, and intricate details throughout, including little statues. I can't say anything bad about it!
A little too Expensive

I love the look of Weathertop But The price 60 bucks is a bit much. I mean the Uruk Hai Army Set is half the Price and doesn't have anything interesting going for it. I wish the good folks at Lego would cut the price in half because sets like Mines of Moria and Helms deep deserve the expensive Price.
