79005 Battle at the Black Gate
The eagle’s wings are articulated.

Wizard Battle 79005, this looks like an inexpensive and classy little set.
79006 The Council of Elrond, there’s lots to like in this set, primarily the wonderful elf hair pieces!
Here’s a massive piece of set I won’t be picking up: 79008 Pirate Ship Ambush
There’s a whole bunch of nice new Castle sets coming out. Nothing mind blowing but great sets if you are building up a Castle collection. This new dragon is fun, 70403 Dragon Mountain:
