ToyFair 2012 in London finally reveals the LEGO Lord of the Rings sets coming out Summer 2012.
Gandalf Arrives (9469)
The smallest of the Lord of the Rings sets coming in at 83 pieces. It consists of Frodo and of course Gandalf. The set reenacts the scene where Gandalf arrives in Hobbiton. There is a cart and fireworks included.
Shelob Attacks (9470)

Uruk-Hai Army (9471)
This is pretty much like the Star Wars Battle Packs but much larger. This 257 piece set is a great way to build up your orc army. Another feature of the “Uruk-Hai Army” set is that it looks like it will connect to The Battle of Helm’s Deep set. The minifigs included will be 4 Uruk-Hai orcs and 2 Rohirrim soldiers, one of which will probably be Eomer.

Attack On Weathertop will be one of the larger sets of the Lord of the Rings series containing 430 pieces and has 5 minifigs, Frodo, Aragorn, Merry, two Nazgul (Ringwraiths).
