Yes if you are not into the theme or collecting the dwarfs, then this set really is not that interesting at all which I totally agree.Brick & Blue wrote:Being as I have no interest in the mini figures am I the only one who still goes "ehh"? Sure it has 800 pieces, but it doesn't feel like it, doesn't feel special or anything. Just a group of mini figures thrown with some random pieces.

I don't think you get it.zztoy wrote:The set being this price shows many examples of problems marketing and why resellers shy away from becoming official partners. Lego still doesn't get it. Not sure how the new releases of Hobbit will fair, but scarey investments for many. My children reaffirmed months ago with no interest.
Why would resellers become official partners with LEGO? LEGO doesn't care as long as you buy the sets. After you buy it they don't care if you resell the set or not.
The problem with the LotR sets is they are several years too late. If they had them for the first trilogy that would have been a lot better. The Hobbit sets are in that weird age group where they are no longer young, but not really old, that group doesn't buy LEGOs. So now you older people buying them because they love the books and movies, and LEGO hoping the younger ones buy them because they look cool.
79000 Riddles for the Ring
79002 Attack of the Wargs
79010 The Golbin King
So I wouldn't expect many more sales on the Goblin King set, as the OP asked about.
