Rated 4 out of 5 by Legofan3214 Not movie accurate, but still cool
I wanna start by saying that this set isn't movie accurate at all! 1st of all, beorn isn't ever in dol guldur, 2nd of all, there are no traps in dol guldur, at least in the film. But it is still cool that we get beorn in a set at all. But enough of that, now to the pros and cons,
Beorn fig is good
Cool double catapult
Not movie accurate,
Why a FLICK MISSILE!!!???
Now this is a nice set that is worth 20 dollars, though there are some issues, like why on earth did lego put a flick missile in this set? And why did lego put beorn in this set? But is still nice to get him in a cheaper set.
Orcs look good with that dark orange skin color. Thanks for reading

Rated 4 out of 5 by mehhh good for play but a little over priced
-good minifigs lots of detail esp on the orcs detail on the main part of the set
-lots of features> catapult, swinging axes, swinging hammer, and the flickfire missile
-beorns head/hair is ONE PIECE I would have liked to see those pieces seperated
-a fast build for twenty dollars
Overall a good set a bit pricy but worth the money

Rated 4 out of 5 by Coolxbricks304 Cool Set
This set is great!
The figures are very detailed, and the best one for me is Beorn. He's a brilliant figure that you need if you're a hard-core Hobbit fan.
The set has some good features. The swinging axes are cool to play with.
There's also a good amount of detail on the building
All in all, a great set that's a must-have if you like The Hobbit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Voldemort “The world is in grave danger.”-Radagast
When the world is in danger, Beorn is there to save it! The smallest set in the new Hobbit wave, but it still packs a punch!
-This set is basically a rock archway, which is the entrance to Dol Guldur. There are three swinging weapons, a hammer and two axes, that can swing out when you flick a switch. One part of the rock opens to reveal a flick-fire missal...seriously? Along with the entrance, there is a double catapult.
-Beorn: Beorn is an odd minifig, because his head is connected to his hair! This combo makes him a bit taller, so there is a positive side! He may not look how I imagined him too, but that isn't LEGO's fault.
-Gundabad orcs: These orcs are seriously scary! They have war paint on their faces, one has shoulder armor, and both have hair.
-This is a nice little set, with great orcs, an exclusive Beorn, and a nice archway. Plus, this set connects with Dol Guldur battle! A great set for a fan of the Hobbit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DarthSauron88 Beorn
Back with another review. Beorn is great, we are not getting his bear form in an upcoming set. gundubad orcs are cool because of the hair pieces. The set has swinging axes and hammers. there is a flick missile and it connects to Db battle but it breaks when you detach them so now onto the final verdict.
Overall I give this set a

Rated 4 out of 5 by LittleHobbit First Hobbit set
This is my first hobbit set!
It's really nice that the set can be attached to the Dol Guldur Battle
The minifigures have cool printing and nice hair pieces.
Nice little catapult
The only negative thing about this set is that Beorn's face is a sticker.
Overall a great little set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Teebo1000 Mini Dol Guldur
A great set to combine with 79014 (Dol Guldur Battle). The minifigures are a great selection and the playability is great.
Beorn: His face is actually attached to his beard and hair for those who didn't know and his weapon is a medium sized axe.
Gundabad Orcs: Finally we have some more orcs with hairpieces rather than bald ones. One orc has an armour piece with spikes which looks quite cool. I think it shows he is a higher rank than the one without it and their weapons are a flail and a sword.
The set has a small double catapult with wheels and both work independently and come with a spare rock brick if you lose one. The set has an eerie, ruined and evil appearance with the great wall details, the skulls, the spikes and the rotting tree . There is also a secret opening rock that fires a flick missile. The main traps are the swinging axes and large hammer which you can rotate via a brick to knock a figure over.
Pros: Figures, features, detailing, catapult and the fact that you can combine it with set 79014
Cons: Beorn's face should be separate and double sided. There should also be a bear because Beorn can morph into one.
I rate it an 8/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by LOTRNerd BEORN!
I think this sweet set is worth buying- for sure! I received this yesterday as a gift, and it was a great present! It is a quick, easy, enjoyable build worth buying for the mini figures alone.
THE BUILD: I think the set itself is great. I like the look of it when added onto Dol Guldur Battle, but it looks great by itself as well. There are a few functions that are great for a small set like this one. Though the colour scheme is mostly grey, you do get a few interesting bricks and pieces.
THE MINIFIGS: ..............Hands down the best part of the set. The minifgs make the set worth buying! BEORN! Beorn's headpiece is so unique and accurate, I can't even describe it. After seeing the movie, I completely fangirled when I saw the figure! Everything from the hair to the face to the clothing print was so accurate. The $25 for this set is worth it because of Beorn. The Gundabad orcs are also cool, as this set can be used as an army builder in the Hobbit line. I love their new colour and especially their shoulder plates with the fangs/spikes. Awesome.
In conclusion, if you have any doubts about this set, buy it because Beorn makes it worth it. The orcs are also great to add to your mini fig army!
Peace out! :)
