  • The daggers that Tauriel holds are the same mould as the Dagger of Time, from the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time theme.
  • All of the minifigures in this set are exclusive. While Legolas appears in another set, this is the only set with this variation of Legolas presently.
  • Despite the set being a subtheme for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the Escape from Mirkwood Spiders scene was moved to the second Hobbit film The Desolation of Smaug due to the last minute change of making The Hobbit into a trilogy instead of two parts.
