Shelob Attacks Lego 9470 - with Samwise and Gollum

by TerriRexson

Lego 9470 Shelob Attack's is one of the smaller sets in the 2012 Lego Lord of the Rings Range. This is the set where you'll find the very important Samwise the hobbit.

Sam Gamgee and Frodo Baggins are on their way to Mount Doom. Gollum is with them and leads them into an encounter with Shelob the spider.

Gollum thinks that if Shelob captures and devours the hobbits then he can get the one ring back, his precious.

Shelob paralyses Frodo. And Sam becomes a hero, fighting off Gollum and then using Frodo's sword Sting to fight Shelob.

Lego Shelob Attacks Contents

Shelob the spider is the central piece in Lego Shelob Attacks. Shelob is built from bricks rather than being molded. 

Shelob is an ancient spider who attacks Frodo and Sam as they enter Cirith Ungol, which means Pass of the Spider. 

Shelob is much bigger than the hobbits and her scale is reflected in this set. 

I'm not a great spider fan and I'm really not keen at the prospect of building this set. My boys love spiders though so they'll certainly want Shelob. I just hope they don't need any help ...

Which minifigures are in Lego Shelob Attacks?

The Lego Shelob Attacks set is a good one for minifigures. You get Frodo Baggins, Samwise 'Sam' Gamgee and also Gollum!

This is the only one of the initial sets to feature Sam so you'll need this one to complete the full Fellowship of nine. 

Gollum doesn't appear in any of the other initial sets either. Gollum knows Shelob before this encounter and is rather fond of her. 

Look below to see promotional images of the Frodo and Sam minifigures and the Gollum minifigure.

If you want to brush up on the Shelob story before getting the set then you need to know where to look. 

In the Lord of the Rings Trilogy of books, the Shelob Attacks scene takes place in the second volume The Two Towers.

But in the movie adaptation, Shelob is saved for movie 3, The Return of the King. She's pretty scary whenever she strikes!

The Return of the King

The Lego Sets tie in with the Lord of the Rings movies. And the Shelob Attacks scene features in the final movie: The Return of the King. 

This is a very important scene for Samwise the hobbit. Definitely worth rewatching if you want to reenact this scene when you get the Lego set.
