I bought and built Bag End yesterday...and my response was "oh this is a nice good build." I was honestly impressed. Sure it is a mighty price, but it was well worth it. Other than Diagon Alley and the Indiana Jones line, there hasn't been many licensed sets that I have even liked the design to, but this one, very nice...very nice indeed. I'm glad I splurged at the Walmart on an impulse.
The figs are just nice. The torsos are pretty dare good detail and some are great for castle. The guy who is made to look over weight, its really well done too. The wigs and beards...nice very nice. And it has a great selection of food for those who are food challenged. Including the PRETZEL..which I personally adore.
It is worth the buy for the parts that are in it in green alone. But the build was so good, and the figs are good, and the food is good...its not often I write something up about a set...this one is good. Good enough that I would buy a second, not for stockpiling, but to build and use again.

Any building, is good building. Build for the fun of it!
