What, Lego sets don't have magnets anymore?
The style of magnet that is used was phased out in 2008. The Lego group was concerned that children could swallow the magnets and hurt themselves. The most common use was to couple train cars together, so Lego designed a new train buffer bar that had an integrated magnet.What, Lego sets don't have magnets anymore?
It's would be 30-35€ if it had been offered at retail, which I would have preferred. I had a Lego purchase planned for January 1st, but it wasn't anywhere close to the threshold required to get the "free" set. Ultimately, I couldn't justify stretching the budget just to get this set.That is a set that should cost 20€ at most.
In December '01, I met Mr. Z when we saw Fellowship of the Ring opening weekend. This March will mark 20 years since our first date. I looooove this set (Fellowship is still my favorite of the LotR trilogy), but I can NOT justify a $500 price tag. That said, it is so pretty and so tempting!10316 Rivendell

LEGO Icons The Lord of the Rings Rivendell, the one LEGO set to rule them all
The LEGO Group, in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products, today announced the much-anticipated LEGO Icons The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell set, inspired by the award-winning film adaptations. This highly detailed, 6167-piece set features the iconic Elven stronghold from Middle-earth and comes complete with 15 minifigures. (Brickset)
Wild.TIL that LEGO doesn't call any of it's brick colors pink:
Sorry if this was talked about already - I skimmed the last few pages and didnt see anything.
Speaking of pink, I remember seeing this creator set earlier this year or late last year and adding it to my mental wish list; It looked like it had some pretty good articulation and realistic details. Well I have since learned lego really went for realism here and included a (not) pink butthole. So yeah.

I'm not sure if it is a good or a bad thing that the Lego Group has realized that there is a pretty big market for new sets in old themes. It would be one thing if they were producing half-baked sets, but all of them have been solid additions to the theme they call back to.I am so tempted to buy this set. I had all four first gen pirates sets and loved them so much!
