LEGO Lord of the Rings and Hobbit - The Wizard Battle (79005) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the characters, the story, the build Short quick build with an action twist or two. I did it with my new kittens "helping" me. Did not take long. For small sets, usual problem is where to put the scene amongst my dominantly Star Wars world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We must join with Sauron For such a small set at £11.99, the Wizard Battle has two great features to re-enact the duel between Gandalf and Saruman. Now onto the minifigures. Gandalf the Grey: This time Gandalf comes without his hat and cloak so instead he has a long grey hairpiece and has the smae headpiece that comes with the figure in set 10237: The Tower of Orthanc. The head has a happy face and one that is yelling. His accessory is his staff. Saruman the White: Saruman is an awesome figure and also quite rare as he only appears in this set and Orthanc. His staff is made up of three bricks and he doesn't have a kirtle outfit in this set. I also love his beard design and I think Lego did a good job on that. His face is also double sided with a normal face and an evil smile. Now onto the set itself. At the front of the throne room is the Palantir with a brand new design print showing the Eye of Sauron. This is a play feature which is put into motion when a brick at the back of the set is turned. It enables the Palantir stand to rotate. In the middle there are small steps leading up to the throne room and next to that are two lamps which are also included in Orthanc. Another play feature is on Saruman's throne which is a pole which can be pushed to knock Saruman off his throne. The throne is detailed and realistic to its counterpart in the Fellowship of the Ring movie. Overall this is an awesome set Gandalf the Grey: 10/10 Saruman the White: 10/10 Pros: Everything, no stickers Cons: None

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good minifigs and parts This set is the smallest of the new LOTR sets, but has some desirable elements included. Gandalf and Saruman are the two minifigures included. Gandalf is presented with hair instead of his hat. Otherwise, he is basically the same as in prior sets. Saruman comes with a white cape, a rubbery beard and hair piece combined into one, and a nice design for his wizard staff. The build is quick and easy. It includes a platform with a throne, two lamps, and a palantir setup. The throne has a nice feature which can eject anyone sitting in it. The palantir has a spinning function, and has enough room to place a minifig so it can spin along with the globe. The value of the set seems good with the two figures as well as some nice pieces. The globe pieces are more uncommon, and you get a unique Eye of Sauron piece that fits inside the globe to complete the palantir. As of this review, this is the only set where you can get this piece. Even the large Orthanc set does not have it. Therefore, if you are planning on buying the larger set, you may still want to get the set to acquire the eye. I plan on switching palantirs with the larger set (once I get it). It would be interesting to see what that Eye piece looks like with a light brick under it. The set is affordable enough that even a casual fan of the trilogy would enjoy the setup and play features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Epic Wizard Battle I received this set because I passed my RCM Music Exam. It is really a wonderful set, representing a very iconic scene from The Fellowship of the Ring. So first I will tell you about the minifigures- Saruman the White- Finally he's here! The long awaited arrival of this minifigure has come to an end, it is an amazing minifig, This particular Saruman has white pants, a nice white outfit with a magician like robes. He has a white cape, which makes it hard to put on his amazing beard. He has a double face, one showing him angry and another one with an evil grin. Unlike the Saruman in the Tower of Orthanc set, this one has movable legs, not a robe like one like the other one. 5/5 Gandalf the Grey- This Gandalf is similar to all the other ones, except for two differences. First off, instead of wearing a hat, it is shown that he has long grey hair(it keeps on following off for me), he also doesn't wear cape. He is pretty cool 4/5 The set is also great, with two special features, one where you can rotate the Palantir using a mechanism on the back of the throne, another one where you can push off one of the minifigures on the throne using a pushing thing that you too operate at the back of the throne. The Eye of Sauron is a really cool feature, I practically bought the set because of it. The two lanterns on the sides of the throne are really nice, you can detach the yellow bulb and the circle piece supporting it to make it look like rockets(fire Saruman to the moon!). Overrall, this is a really nice set, I would defeintely suggest buying it, the price isn't that big, so you really should buy it before it becomes retired or is Sold Out forever. It is a real sturdy set, can't break even if you smash a rock on it (I've tried). Overall- 5/5 Thank you for reading my review! ~~~~superdoogy away!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Wizard Battle I purchased this set recently, and I have not stopped from going around with Saruman in my pocket and played with this set over and over. I recreated some scenes from the movie, such as "We will fight- for Saruman!" Let's start with the actual build. The Throne Room Palantir/Pedestal- Includes spinning function, which looks as if the Eye of Sauron is glancing around the room. Also, you can set Gandalf on it and make him spin around, as if Saruman is throwing him around with his Wizard's staff. The Eye piece is a great piece, and I have seen several great models using it. Lamps/Stairs- The lamps have a good collection of pieces. The yellow bulb pieces are awesome, and I like how LEGO used rocket pieces to make the lamp slope. The stairs are useful, and I have not seen many LEGO stairs before. Throne- The Throne has a nice selection of slopes in black, some black cones, and a smooth 2x2 tile, in guess what- black. All together, a pretty evil-looking throne. Minifigures Saruman- LEGO did a shocking piece of work on this figure. His legs are completely white, but the chestpiece is so detailed that you can even see the little silver linings on the robes- just like the movie. The white cape is a nice touch, and the three-tone beard is awesome. The head is the same as the 2013 Count Dukoo head, but he has an alt face as well as his serious face. The alt makes him look really angry, which I only remember happening when Gandalf fought Theoden/Saruman. Great figure, and his staff is well thought out. Gandalf- Gandalf is almost exactly like the 2012 figure, except with a few diffs. First, he has no cape. Second, he has a hairpiece and not a hat. Third, he now has a double sided face; one side is a angry, bellowing face while the other is just a smiling, happy face. Verdict: Buy it. It has two almost entirely exclusive figures, and a good choice of pieces. Thanks for reading this review, it's fun to review these sets. -JAH

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing set This is a really awesome small set. It also comes with the new Sauromon minifigure. The palantir is really cool, but it doesn't light up like in the tower of orthanc set which will come out soon. the play features are really good, and accurate to the movie this is the best small set i have ever seen
