First Look at the Upcoming LEGO Sets for THE LORD OF THE RINGS

     December 20, 2011


Last week, we reported that LEGO had added The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit to its list of licensed properties and the sets would be start being released in summer 2012.  Preliminary images from those sets have now leaked online and they reveal some of the locations and events that will be LEGOized.  Naturally, there are the smaller sets that focus more on events (“Gandalf Arrives”, “Shelob Attacks”) but the larger ones are based on locations (“The Battle of Helm’s Deep”, “The Mines of Moria”).  There’s no word on how many pieces each set contains, but we can see how the hobbits will be shorter than the humans (the hobbits have no knees).  While the age recommendations go up to 14-years-old, it’s only a recommendation.  They can’t stop me from buying and building these.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  [Update: Lego asked us to take down the images.  Sorry if you missed them.]
