Ace from FBTB is at SDCC and got more pictures
of Lake-town Chase. Looking closely at the parts involved, most things look standard, except the new gothic half-arch in brown (2 of these), the rounded window in dark green (4 of these - only in two sets in this color before), a fair number of weapons (Sting, two of the gladius, one of the newer bows, one flail, one pike). I'm pretty sure Bard has the Qui-Gon Ginn hair in black, which we have only had in the two forms of brown before. Two new helms - one more generic and the one with hair. All of the torsos look generally useful for castle. Great shield on the boat - I assume the pattern is the same on both sides, but could not tell from the pics.
A Eurobricks forum member apparently got an e-mail response from Mark Stafford confirming that the Azog fig will appear in a future set, but he implied there would be a different coloring. If you really need the fig now, in this color, There is an auction on ebay right now with bids going up to $500+ and another with a single bid of $990.
Some 75-year-old spoilers follow.
On the rampant speculation about the five sets coming out in December, I think a lot turns on two questions - 1) Where will movie 2 end? and 2) Will there be a big battle around Dol Guldur? Given that movie 2 will have some big action climax I see this going one of two ways. I think there will either be a bit of mystery/cliff-hanger around the Lonely Mountain and a big action sequence at Dol Guldur, or the other way around. My suspicion is the first of these, so here is my proposal:
-Lake-town Chase set
-Bilbo and Smaug in the treasure-chamber
-Big Dol Guldur battle set
-Small set of the secret door with a couple of dwarves
-Elf/orc small army builder set, probably with the Azog fig (from the trailer didn't we see Azog attacking some sort of elf watchtower?)
