BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Lego The Lord of the Rings and Lego The Hobbit are two Lego themes based on the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films by Peter Jackson. These are in turn based on the fictional world Middle-earth from the writings of J. R. R. Tolkien. The first wave of sets for The Lord of the Rings were released in May 2012, while the sets for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey were released in December 2012. A second wave of sets for The Lord of the Rings will be released in 2013.

The Hobbit takes place 60 years before the events of The Lord of the Rings. The story began at the hobbit-hole of Bilbo Baggins, when Gandalf the Grey asked him if he would like to go on an adventure. Bilbo, however, declined, as Hobbits generally prefered to stay comfortably at home. Nevertheless, Gandalf returned the next day with thirteen Dwarves, Thorin Oakenshield, Dori, Nori, Ori, Balin, Dwalin, Fili, Kili, Oin, Gloin, Bifur, Bofur, and Bombur. Their quest was to reclaim their home, gold, and kingdom under the mountain taken by Smaug, the fearsome dragon. Moved by their plight, Bilbo agreed to accompany them on an adventure that would change his life forever.

After being captured by goblins, Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and his Dwarves were led to the Goblin King. However, Bilbo managed to escape unnoticed, but he fell down a hole and into a tunnel leading to Gollum's cave. Gollum, upon realising that there was something in his cave, came to investigate. Bilbo hid in the cave and saw the One Ring fall out of Gollum's clothes, so he took the Ring and then followed Gollum. Bilbo, after being found by Gollum, agree's to play a game of the riddles on the condition that if he wins, Gollum will show him the way out, but if he loses, Gollum can eat him. Bilbo manages to answer all of Gollum's riddles correctly, and upon realising that Gollum only told him to tell him a question, not a riddle, manages to win the game by asking Gollum what was in his pocket, a question that Gollum could not correctly answer. However, after this, Gollum realised that he had lost the One Ring, and that Bilbo had taken it. Bilbo put the Ring on, making himself invisible to Gollum, while Gollum heads towards the cave exit in an attempt to find the Hobbit. Bilbo followed Gollum to the exit, and upon finding the way out, leaped over Gollum and made his escape.
