Shelob Attacks Lego 9470 - with Samwise and Gollum
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.

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 ...
Where can you buy Lego Shelob Attacks?

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.

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.
