I've found a quality issue with all the Gandalf arrives sets I've opened. 7 sets so far.. When you put the horse together you get a 1x2 brick and a 1x2 plate in brown to go on the back of the horse.
The problem is that the plate matches the brown colour of the horse while the 1x2 brown brick is in a completely different shade of brown to the rest. The horse ends up with a darker brown square patch along its side when assembled.
Has anyone else noticed this on theirs?
Please contact LEGO about this. They will want to know so they can address it. They may ask you for the number printed on the inside of the box and where you ordered it, but they need to know so they can fix it. I know it seems like a small thing, but I once contacted them about a box that smelled like kerosene. They paid to have the box shipped to them so they could investigate. They do really want to know.
So back to the discussion at hand. I broke down and bought my first LOTR set, Gandalf's cart and I was rather pleased with it. It has great parts, plus I like his beard. Today I got the spider set...I was avoiding this because I really do not like spiders, but I was at the Walmart and decided to splurge. I'm hoping it will be rather good.
