Hobbit polybag available in TRU

Posted by ,
Mirkwood Elf Guard

Another excellent LotR/Hobbit polybag has surfaced in TRU in the USA. 30212 Mirkwood Elf Guard features a minifig that does not appear in any other Hobbit set so it's a must for Hobbit fans, minifig collectors and polybag aficionados. There's a Mirkwood elf in set 79004 but he doesn't have a dark green hood.

Although TRU.com will ship internationally, it appears it won't ship this set, so if anyone would be kind enough to ship some over, perhaps in exchange for some Uruk-hai's, please get in touch!

Green Hood! (I know it's available with Dr. Doom, but great to see it in a polybag). Great parts, this whole bag is full of 'win'.

I could order a bunch. How many do you want?

@DaveBey, I would love to buy two.

Oh man, why do Lego do this! Are we going to end up paying silly prices for this......I want one!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yes I am actually going to TRU later on, if you need me to get any let me know and how many, i'll pick up whatever they have/let me get. :)

I could do with three of these at least.. If anyone in the states could hook me up I could pay or trade for any of the recent/not so recent Sun polybag sets!

I could use two, I have friends polys to trade, PM if you can help me. Cheers.

By in Norway,

I don't have any polybags to trade, but if anyone wants to sell me a couple, I would be very grateful!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Hope there's a chance to get these in the UK somehow - that's a great bag, the parts are awesome!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

That is a great poly. If you ask me, it's got Sun promo written all over it, but the next one won't be until May and I want 2 now ;-)

The hood without a cape looks really odd to me. Kinda wish he'd have an elven hairpiece instead.

Not that I'm ever going to get ahold of this anyway, but yeah.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^I had the same thought as @atkinsar. I predict a second-Saturday granny riot for these in WHS next May.

If I may jump on the bandwagon, to any American members who happen to pick up a surplus, I'd love to buy/trade for a couple of these (Sun Promos, or any of the CMFs series 1-8 to trade if there's still interest in them).

Sorry to turn this post into a marketplace, Huw, but this is very exciting news!

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

oh i need that one too! :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, looks like I will be headed to TRU for sure! I will post later what I get and anyone can PM me and we can trade or sell. Anything pirate is clearly my first choice! But I love castle too. :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

This had better come out in the UK. As a LOTR and Hobbit only collector it's a must and will be great alongside escape from mirkwood spiders or as an army builder.

Gravatar
By in United States,

TRU will let you order up to 5 just placed order will trade when they get here

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I would also have one and happy to pay, it is about time the UK TRU did polybags!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

This is of course madness, but right when I saw this post I started to assemble a TRU order to take advantage of all their sales and get free shipping. I can't say I'm really interested in much but if anyone is interested in me picking them up it costs 31.54 for five including sales tax.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

I would also be interested for two of those polybags! such a same you can't order them for Europe :(

Gravatar
By in Canada,

If someone is willing to ship to Canada I'll take 2 (I have two kids) pm me please :)

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Wow that is a great polybag! :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm planning on checking out TRU today and would be happy to trade if I can find any. I really need a couple of the Uruk-Hai poly.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I checked both stores in Tulsa, Oklahoma with no luck. I'm more than happy to place a bunch of orders online though for folks. $32.37 including shipping and sales tax for five.

By in Netherlands,

Again, just as with the christmas promotion I feel left behind in the netherlands. All the cool polybag sets seem te be designated as 'persona non grata' in the netherlands.
Uruk hai? Nowhere, frodo? Never heard of him. Super heros? Who are they? Star wars plolybags? it feels like 10 new ones each year. none of them made it to the netherlands. We get stuck with police helicopters and ninjago sets.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I will need this set as well, lets hope Canada gets some soon.

Gravatar
By in Austria,

I need them too - could anyone in the US get me a bundle (5) of these? and send them to Austria / Europe? For paying and shipping terms feel free to contact me by pm!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

This looks like a brilliant polybag, look at those parts! A mushroom, tree parts, a barrel, a dark green hood, a trans-green goblet and a long bow, incredible!

If anybody is able to pick me up three then please PM me. I would be more than happy to trade for any of the Sun polybags which have just passed or pay for them. Many thanks!

It's available online right now at TRU. Also $25 off of $100 Lego purchase.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The US TRU website offers the option to ship internationally... They say they ship to 68 countries

Gravatar
By in Norway,

They don't ship to Scandinavia.

Gravatar
By in Curaçao,

^^ But not this item, it seems...

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

They don't ship to Belgium either :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

I've got 5 coming so far. I'd consider getting more for a good trade. pm me anyone interested.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'll be trying to snag a bunch of these too, I've already ordered 5 online and hope to pick up some in stores too. Anyone in the UK hoping to get some of these let me know, I'll be looking to trade for Uruk Hai polys.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well, I would be happy to sell and ship or trade. Just message me. I like Star Wars and I would also like to get an Elrond.

Gravatar
By in Europe,

Awesome poly bag lets just hope it comes to England. Hopefully the starwars poly bags are as good as this next year.
Possibly sun promotion next year?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am placing an order with TRU as well, not that I should really be spending the $ right now! Anyway, I am ordering the max of 5 of these and I really only need 2. If anyone is interested in the others, please contact me. I'd be willing to either just sell them or trade for Uruk Hai poly bags or Ninjago Hidden Sword poly.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I will need to buy two of these at least if Canadian TRUs stock them for the Holidays.

Gravatar
By in Spain,

^^skullsndogbones PM sent... I'm in need of help to get some of these polys.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Would love to have one of these. The people at the other side of the pacific must be quite happy with this! I am willing to trade some stuff, or even buy.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Well, I'll be blowing $30 on these if they show up at my TRU. Elves elves elves. I have like, two or three extra Lucius Malfoys for long hair too!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am going to peruse my local TRU for these and pick up as many as I can. If I do, I would be willing to trade them for either the Hawkeye Ploy or the Uruk-Hai Poly.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I checked my local TRU. No such luck. But I did manage to get some Hostess on the way back :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

Best Hobbit set yet.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I placed three orders online for the maximum of five in each order. Based on the number of folks who messaged me, I'll probably order some more tomorrow.

I did end up calling one of the stores and the nice lady couldn't find the polybag in the system. I'll call the other store here tormorrow and see if they're able to find it by Product ID and if so, when/if they expect any locally.

Gravatar
By in United States,

For any of you who have the TRU Mastercard, they are offering free shipping with no minimum purchase if you use your TRU Mastercard. However, I ordered 5 of this polybag and was charged the shipping cost. After a lengthy call with customer service, I got my order shipped for free. They said that "they have had many complaints about this and will get it fixed in a week or two" Really? Shouldn't that be more of a priority? Anyway, if you have a TRU Mastercard, watch your shipping charge.

I love that tree.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I would love to have one or two. But as already mentioned polybags in the Netherlands are very hard to find. I have ordered a couple now from ebay.

Gravatar
By in Spain,

they do not appears on TRU anymore :(

Edit 1: it appears listed again.
Edit 2: I dont know why but it dissapears sometimes.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Where can i get it in Germany???

Gravatar
By in Spain,

-DROENI- I think there is no way to get it in Europe, only if anybody sends its to you from EEUU or buying it on eBay :(

Gravatar
By in Singapore,

I m from Singapore, I wishes to buy some of these from overseas sellers, I don't have for trading.

Wonder if any kind souls can help me to get it ?

Thanks

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm gonna need a few of these for the epic pieces...
Will Uruk-hai polys be avaible in the US sometime?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Does anyone think it comes with his hair? I sure hope it does...

Gravatar
By in Spain,

does anybody knows if TRU still sells them? i can't find them anymore.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It appears they pulled them from the web, and I only managed to get 1 at the store, since I said asked for it. They had to get it from the stockroom. The store clerk said that they are holding the inventory to give them out with the other Hobbit sets to launch soon. I am not sure how they will give them out. Perhaps, buy over certain amount and get one free, or buy a certain set(s) and get one free.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Rol,

I would be interested in 2 of these. I have 2 of the Hawkeyes to trade. I just PMed you. Please let me know.

Thanks,

I called and one store got them in today. When we went to pick them up they had them stashed under the customer service counter and not on the racks. If you go to TRU make sure to ask a person to see if they are hiding them. This store got one case which was 50 of them.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Its no longer showing on TRU website. I'm glad I ordered some before they were gone.

Gravatar
By in United States,

My local TRU in Sacramento had a bunch out with the other Lego stuff. Didn't seem to be a limit on how many I could buy, so I bought six. Didn't want to be greedy.

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

Alright... we're gathering patience for the UK newspaper promo... again!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I saw this set on tru.com and before I could even realize what happened, I had purchased 5 of them. Can't wait until they arrive!

Gravatar
By in United States,

First 5 arrived for me from TRU today.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I bought 21 of this sweet set at my local TRU today (in order to qualify for the buy over $100 LEGO, get $25 discounted deal, which ends today). So I essentially got them all for 25% off, which is a pretty good deal to find in a TRU around the holidays. They had about 30 left on the pegs. Some will be stocking stuffers and I will probably trade some for other polys, but I really love this set and want to keep the rest! A perfect polybag in my opinion. And really, can one ever have enough elves?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Quick urgent plea - I messaged/emailed a kind forum member through ths topic two days ago, who asked me to message him through the forum - but unfortunately his Brickset "name" didn't come up on the email he sent me, and I can't remember which post it was!

Rather than spam every US posting on this topic, If "Jakesnake" could please email me again with his Brickset name - or if anyone else can tell it to me, given the fragment of his email address I used here - I will be delighted to resume our correspondence.

Cheers folks,

Carl Q.

^thats me! Sorry, I thought the emails came with forum name attached haha. I just got some intel from my friends in the area and know which stores have them, I'm on my way out to pick some up!

Piece count on the bag is 27

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ok. Let me rephrase that. Once I get some I'll be happy to ship to people. Sorry I didn't make that clear. I'll post another comment once I get them, or an image of it on Flickr.

Hey,

As a follow up, I was able to secure a few of the elf hobbit polys (16 with 4 already on hold). I have hopefully followed up with everyone that messaged me so far, but if anyone else is interested, please let me know, it's first come first serve as I am trading for the Uruk-Hai Poly or the Heroica Ganrash Poly.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I picked up one yesterday. TRU was selling them for 4.99 USD each. It didn't look like anyone else discovered the display.
