New snaps of the upcoming LEGO The Lord Of The Rings 79008 Pirate Ship Ambush have showcased the immense size of the set. The ship will stand more than a foot tall and will run nearly two feet long. The set, which is slated for a June release, will also feature nine minifigures, including: Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, King of the Dead, two Soldiers of the Dead, the Pirate of Umbar and two Mordor Orcs.
Set images, taken from what seems like a retailers catalog, of the Summer 2013 LEGO The Lord Of The Rings have leaked out on to the internet. Four new sets are slated for a June 2013 release. The set lineup (with their respective minifigures) include:
- 79005 – The Wizard Battle: Gandalf the Grey and Saruman Minifigs
- 79006 – The Council of Elrond: Elrond, Frodo, Arwen and Gimli
- 79007 – Battle at the Black Gate: Gandalf the White, Aragorn, The Witch King of Angmar & 2 x Morder Orc
- 79008 – Pirate Ship Ambush: Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, King of Dead, 2 x Soldiers of Dead, 2 x Mordor Orc and 2 x Corsair Pirate
Since the pictures are only preliminary, it is possible prior to their release in the summer of 2013, that the sets may change somewhat. New details about the 2013 LEGO The Lord of the Rings lineup should emerge in the coming weeks and months and possibly specify details such as price and piece count.
