- Aragorn - He is just the old Aragorn minifigure that was included in 2 sets on 2012. A sword is still equipped to him.
- Legolas Greenleaf - There is a new thing about him but he is still a nice minifigure. The printed angry expression on one side of his face is slightly different with the previous one. He equipped with a bow.
- Gimli - He is so identical to Gimli minifigure from 79006 The Council of Elrond. He equipped with a short handled battle axe.
- King of the Dead (new) - He is a brand new minifigure in LoTR line. His printed dual side zombie faces, skeleton, and legs armor are nice. A worn crown, a red cape, and a sword are equipped to him.
- Soldier of the Dead (new, x2) - They are also the brand new minifigures in LoTR line. Their body parts based color are similar to the King of the Dead parts. Each of them has a unique and awesome torso marking and equipped with a worn battle helmets, a worn sand gree cape, and a sword. They also come with new dual sided zombie faces.
- Pirate of Umbar (new) - I believe this brand new minifigure hair piece and printed face style are much like Thorin Oakenshield minifigure from The Hobbit line. There is nice torso marking on his grey body. He equipped with a chain piece that bind him.
- Mordor Orc (x2) - There is nothing new about them. They equipped with a bulky sword, a long handled axe, and an Uruk-hai armor. This minifigures also can be found in 79007 Battle at the Black Gate.
