It's not a terrible set by any means, but it just isn't anything that special. It has a horse, a unique Frodo, and Gandolf, but nothing that is going to get anyone really excited. Perhaps I am underestimating the minifig collector's fervent need to get every variant of minifigure out there, but if you want this set just for the Frodo then go buy up the "Frodo with Cooking Corner" (30210) poly bag that contains the same Frodo. If you find some on clearance buy them, but ...
This little set does have some really nice characteristics that make it a good addition to any Lord of the Rings LEGO collection. It is a pretty iconic moment from the first movie, and includes two of the most popular characters of the series. If you are a collector, don't hesitate and get this set now.
On the other hand, if you are a investor, things may be different. We are talking about a really small set that despite having some interesting bricks and minifigs is priced relatively...
I'd have to rate this set an over-all eight because while this set is small, and slightly pricey, it makes up for it in the secondary market.
== Pros ==
* Good minifigures
*Preforms well for investors
== Cons ==
*Skimpy piece count for $12
*Gandalf's seat could use some work
So this is the smallest of all (excluding polybags) sets from LEGO Lord Of THe Rings theme. You get the Gandalf, who you can get in 2 or 3 other sets atleast, with more coming, and Frodo Baggins who you can acquire only through polybag in Frodo and the cooking corner. The set itself is ok, nothing impressive, play value is relative, display value is okish, might do much better on display with Unexpected Gathering from The Hobbit line where you get Bag End. You get the new horse like on all new s...
Gandalf Arrives is the smallest and cheapest (not counting the polybags) set of the first wave of the LOTR theme. The set has 83 pieces and is a short and easy build.
The 2 minifigs are the real point of this set. You get Gandalf the Gray and Frodo Baggins. Both are excellently portrayed, in keeping with the top quality minifigs we can see across the whole LOTR/Hobbit range. Neither are exclusive to this set though, Gandalf can be found in 3 other sets and Frodo in the Cooking Corner po...
