Wii glitch? Black rider
Can't get past the black rider scene! Supposed to start the level with all 4 hobbits ... But merry and pippen are missing! I've tried restarting, erasing my slot, 2 different wiis and 2 different discs!!! Anyone else having this glitch? Thanks!
Answer from: Epic Guy
It's not a glitch. It's supposed to happen. Remember the character wheel from LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean? Hold c and the character wheel will pop up. You'll see Merry and Pippin's portraits. Select one of them and whoever you currently are will switch to whoever you chose.

Same here... making me crazy cause i cant leave the level. saw a walkthrough vid on a PS3 and all 4 hobbits were there and all the guy did was walk his way out of the level. there is an invisible wall preventing me on the wii because of this glitch.

Character wheel doesn't work for this... Not until free play mode. How did you get past the fishing part without pippin??
Answer from: Thalia
I am having the same problem. Merry and Pippin are not available (it's just Sam and Frodo), so I can't get past this level. I also don't understand how Vdub got past without Pippin for fishing... in the video walkthroughs I've seen, all four hobbits are supposed to be available on this level. I even restarted the game from the beginning to see if it would work the second time through and it was a complete waste of time. I'm not thrilled.
Answer from: Thalia
I fixed my issue... I noticed on the packaging it said that a Wii system update might be required to play the game. I haven't done a check of that in a while, so I went into Wii settings and clicked system update, and it did download some sort of update. After doing so, I went back to the game (didn't even have to start from the beginning), and Merry and Pippin are now available in the character wheel for that level (Sam and Frodo are still the only ones showing up on screen at the beginning of the level, though).
Answer from: DD
If you hold C you will be able to select Merry and Pippin so you are able to fish.

Answer from: Hunter
There is a tree branch with a bird on it underneath the Black Rider, you need to throw the rock at it to make the Black Rider go away, then you can get through.
