For a double whammy this week, LEGO has revealed the designer video for the LEGO The Hobbit Escape from Mirkwood Spiders (79001) which has shown up on their minisite along with the Barrel Escape video yesterday. Jordan Scott describes the second Hobbit Trilogy Special Preview Set in more detail along with the minifigures included: Fili the Dwarf, Kili the Dwarf, Legolas Greenleaf and Tauriel. The spiders are similar to the Shelob Attacks set but smaller. There are also a new net pieces that act as spider cocoons that capture the Fili and Kili.

Follow Fili the Dwarf and Kili the Dwarf deep into the dark and scary Mirkwood™ Forest on The Quest for The Lonely Mountain. Attack the heroes with 3 small spiders and 2 giant spiders with glow-in-the-dark eyes and trap them inside cocoon elements high up in the buildable tree. Use Legolas Greenleaf™ and Tauriel™ to save the day by battling the spiders and freeing the Dwarves with the tipping function before it’s too late!
Includes 4 minifigures: Fili the Dwarf, Kili the Dwarf, Legolas Greenleaf and Tauriel, all with assorted weapons.
