9473 The Mines of Moria is a Lord of the Rings set released in May 2012. This set includes the door to the tomb which opens and closes, the well, which can knock a skeleton into it, Balin's tomb, with a skeleton inside, and a wall, with a collapsing pillar; weapons litter the floor. These include: A two-piece axe with a bronze head, two Heroica knives, a Heroica bow and arrow, a Heroica axe, a Heroica wand, a Heroica staff and a Heroica sword.


The set is based on the Chamber of Mazarbul, which contains the tomb of Balin, in the Dwarven kingdom of Khazad-dûm (also called the Mines of Moria). After their journey across the pass of Caradhras was halted by Saruman conjuring storms, the Fellowship took a detour through the Mines of Moria. They then headed through Moria, discovering inside Balin's tomb and the book of Mazarbul sitting on top of it. Gandalf read from the last extract of the book and found out that the Dwarven population had been killed by the invading Moria goblins. Pippin then inadvertently alerted them to their presence by knocking a skeletons head and then the rest of its body into a well. The Fellowship would then barricade the room as much as possible and fight the goblins and their Cave Troll. Evidently the troll put up quite a fight and managed to stab Frodo with a spear. Fortunately, Frodo had been wearing a chain-body of mithril given to him by his uncle Bilbo in Rivendell, making Frodo's body impenetrable against the spear. After driving away the Goblins, they could hear more coming, so they headed off for the Bridge of Khazad-dûm where they would later encounter Durin's Bane (The Balrog).
