August 13 Update: We’ve removed the images as per LEGO’s request. These images apparently got leaked from the Mexican factory. They are not to be shared until October 15th, 2014 as per LEGO’s agreement with their license owner. We ask that if you still have the images, please delete them and refrain from sharing it with other people. Doing this would really help LEGO out during this crucial time.
These new Hobbit sets will be based on the new Hobbit The Battle of the Evil Armies movie, the third and final installment of The Hobbit. The movie will be released later this year on December 2 in the UK and December 17 in the USA. This means that the sets should be available sometime during October/November. From the pictures, what do you think of these sets?
#79015 LEGO Witch-King Battle
- 101 pieces, 3 minifigures
#79016 LEGO Attack on Lake-Town (this looks like an extension to the current 79013 Lake Town Chase set!)
- 313 pieces, 5 minifigures

The #21109 LEGO Ideas Exo-Suit set is a very popular set and is also a set that is quite difficult to get right now. Two new merchants have recently been identified that are also carrying the LEGO Exo-Suit set. Forum member payam81 informs us that the LEGOLAND in Vaughan Discovery Center has the set instock for $44.99 CAD. Forum member warhev also notifies us that Amazon (USA) is also carrying the set for $34.95 USD. He ordered it on August 7th, the day when it first became available at Amazon. It appears to be now going in and out of stock at random times. All of the online merchants are now showing the set as out of stock. Your best right now is to head to a Brick & Mortar store like Toys R Us, LEGO and LEGOLAND. Did you get a copy of the set yet (or expecting one to be delivered soon)? If not, you can enter our giveaway where you can win a free copy of the Exo-Suit set, complimentary of Toys N Bricks. All you have to do is leave a comment in the forum. In addition, I’ll also throw in a copy of the 6862 LEGO Super Heroes Superman vs. Power Armor Lex set into the giveaway as well. Its a retired product and is now sold out at LEGO. This set will act as a little teaser for our next big contest, which should be launching in the next few weeks. Stay tune for that!
Note: If you already have a copy of the Exo-Suit set, we would prefer that you do not enter as we want to give those in the TnB community that do not have the set a chance at getting a copy. Basic contest rules apply in this giveaway. Raffle closes on August 23rd, 2014 at 21:00 PST.
