Is there anything more exciting than the Dec. 14 release of The Hobbit? No, probably not. Director Peter Jackson has upped the ante with his Lord of the Rings prequel trilogy, shooting the new movie at 48 frames per second instead of the traditional 24 for an even more fantastical, epic 3D viewing experience.
Lego has a complete collection commemorating the film, but we're most excited about the Unexpected Gathering ($70) set based on the chilling trailer.
