Following right after three other Hobbit designer videos, comes another one! This time it is the set 79002 Attack Of The Wargs. The video bears resemblance to the Designer Videos, but has some differences as well. In this video, the newly appointed designer showcases his latest work and it's features and the included minifigures, three which are exclusive to this set.
As a 'Hobbit Trilogy Special Preview Set' , LEGO the Hobbit 79004 Barrel Escape, formally known as Escape in the Barrels, has made its debut online as a video that bears resemblance to the Designer Videos. In the video, Senior Designer Bjarke Lykke Madsen showcases the features of Barrel Escape, his latest model, the five minifigures included, four which are exclusive to the set. Features include toppling barrels and exploding prison doors. The set places emphasis on the underground setting of the scene in the movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which is illustrated in the set using earth colours and the use of detailed and large arches.
A short comic featuring Monster Fighters and the upcoming Galaxy Squad theme was released with the November/December issue of LEGO Club Magazine this month. This is our first look at one of the last (if not last) known themes being released early next year.

Also revealed in LEGO Club Magazine, but another country's version, was this first look at a Dr. Jekyl/Mr. Hyde figure, image above, widely believed to be Dr. Splitz as listed with other rumoured figures. There goes our hopes at a space monkey...
...this chicken guy has surfaced too though.
This guy turned up earlier, I don't know the details but it is the physical version of another Galaxy Squad character.
Edit: Another red (cockroach?) alien has turned up

A couple new Chima images. The IP who is smarter than me has some nice ideas on what the second one could be about.
- Omega X.23 for reporting the Hobbit articles and writing them.
- Starcracker for reporting the Chima teaser site, Clone gunner commander jedi for uploading the Galaxy Squad images to the wiki, and Missingno.10 for uploading the Dr. Splitz image.
- NightblazeSaber for uploading (and finding?) the Alien Mosquito images and Admiral Neo for alerting me.
