Uruk-Hai Army 9471 - LOTR Lego Sets - Release Dates, Prices

Updated on August 22, 2012

Today we are going to take a closer look at the Uruk-Hai Army Lego set item number 9471. This is another new Lord Of The Rings Lego set to be released in 2012. We will talk about release dates, prices and where to buy the Uruk-Hai Army online. This page will tell you everything you need to know about this exciting new Lego set.

In December 2011 there was a simply massive announcement from the people at Lego. They had finally decided it was time to take Lord Of The Rings and turn it into Lego format. This was something people had been asking about for over ten years, so this really was big news. There is also going to be new Hobbit Lego coming out later in the year which will come out just in time for the big release of the Hobbit movie. So now let’s take a closer look at one of the sets to be released.

The Uruk-Hai Set 9471

In the summer of 2012 we are going to see seven brand new LOTR Lego sets. One of these is going to be the Uruk-Hai Army. This set has the item number 9471. Seen more as a battle pack really this one is ideal for people looking to build up a small army of minifigures. The release date for this one is expected to be sometime in June and no the 1st of June looks to have been confirmed for the officail release. Despite that fact some sets have shown up online a few weeks before the actual release date.

Most of the other sets in the series are based on actual scenes from the Lord Of The Rings movies. This set however is a little more broad in scope. There are a few scenes where we see the Uruk-Hai Army in action both near the end of the Fellowship of The Ring and then again in The Two Towers. It is really left to interpretation as to which scenes this set is really from.

This set of Lego comes with 6 minifigures which really is quite a lot considering it is only a small set. In that are included 4 Uruk-Hai soldiers, Eomer and a Rohirrim Soldier. Another figure you get is the horse, this has movable legs and is quite impressive for a Lego horse. The main section of the set is a wall which features a torch and catapult. You also get another catapult with wheels, these are capable of firing little missiles. One of the interesting things about this set is that it is designed to work with Helm’s Deep. You can add the wall onto Helm’s Deep and combine the two sets to create a larger one, a nice feature. Plus of course you get the extra minifigures so you can build up a real good size Lego army.

This set is going to have 257 pieces which makes it a middle sized set for this series. We have been told the price is going to be around the $30 mark which seems like pretty good value for the fact that you get six nice minifigures included plus a decent size build. As you can see from the picture this set looks quite good and would be ideal to work along side Helms Deep. Although many will see this one as one of the less glamorous sets it still looks like it should sell very well.

The New LOTR Minifigs

Lord Of The Rings Lego Sets

As well as the release of the Uruk-Hai Army 9471 we are also going to see other Lego LOTR sets. There have been rumours about these for a while and now they have all be confirmed. We will see a small set called Gandalf Arrives, a nice set called Shelob Attacks which features a giant spider. Attack On Weathertop which features some nice minifigures and horses the highlight of this set could be the two Ringwraiths. The Mines Of Moria which looks like being a favourite, this is a big set with some brilliant details and a fantastic Cave Troll figure. The Battle Of Helms Deep which is the largest of the sets and has lots of incredible detail and loads of great minifigures. Finally The Orc Forge which looks like being one of the less popular releases from the new theme.

All these sets look really impressive. Fans of Lego and fans of the films have been waiting a really long time to see these and I have no doubt they will not be disappointed when they finally get here. There are already rumours of where the series might go in the future and with so many great scenes to choose from designers of the sets must really be excited about what they can do. With only one set based on The Return Of The King (Shelob Attacks) we are expecting quite a few more sets based on that film.

This page should have given you an insight into what to expect from this new Uruk-Hai Army Lego set. If you are after a nice collection of soldiers then this pack is one that is going to be ideal for you. There are probably more impressive Lord Of The Ring sets coming out but this is still one that a lot of people will really enjoy. For all round price and value it really does look like being well worth getting hold of.
