So yeah, it's gonna happen.


Kind of wishing LEGO had done this a few years back when I was still big into the hobby, but oh well. So, whatcha think will be in the first batch of sets?

Will they make an actual ring, or will it be a gold 1x1 round piece? :P

That's the most appropriate GIF for this news. Really. :P

So... That means they'll probably do a LEGO LotR game where you can play as every characters ever? BECAUSE WE NEED TO.

THERE IS NO GIF ENTHUSIASTIC ENOUGH TO EXPRESS MY EXCITEMENT!

LEGO, just take all of my money right now. I'll take 6 of each set.

Oh fine, here's a gif:

With great chances they'll be very accurate to the aesthetic of the movies... Which would mean an awesome Gimli and Aragorn... And Gandalf. :D

The only complaint I have right now is that Smaug is gonna look ridiculous and most likely designed around that Ninjago look of a big head, little body and just bad features. :/

Here's hoping for some new swords, cool characters and interesting ideas.

Star Wars took over the Space sets back in its prime, and we've had some great sets. Now LotR... Would it take over the Castle lines? I do hope it does in some ways...

Yeah, it sounds like they're going to be based on the films. Which is fine with me, because say what you will about their other faults, the movies did a great job of visualizing Middle Earth.

Oh, and there will almost certainly be video game. LEGO has been tying the games more closely with the sets for a while now. They're coming out with a "LEGO Batman II: Superheroes" to go with the DC Comics line. The question is whether they'll put the LotR trilogy and the Hobbit in the same game or split them. I don't really care; I'm buying them all either way.

I can't wait to see what kind of sets and accessories they come up with. I have so many ideas that they couldn't possibly do them all. Rohirrim! Elves! Easterlings! Uruk-hai! Moria goblins! ARGH I'M GETTING MY HOPES TOO HIGH!

Trolls. God****** cave Trolls.

And great job visualizing? Heck! With few green screen. New-Zeland is Middle-Earth!

Also that would mean viking-looking pieces, the Rohan were pretty much Vikings with horses.

Also, going with LEGO's sets mentality, we may get Ent vs Orcs or the huge battering ram vs Minas Tirith's door.

... Nazgul's Fell Beasts... :shock: 12 hours of movies, there are going to be lots of sets.

Considering it's all going to be based off the movies, Smaug most likely won't exist as a set until near the second movie's release, and will be based off the one in the movie however it appears. Like that one Harry Potter set where apparently they had an actual sport where there's just a dragon lying about on the field.

Here's to hoping they spell his name right :P

But yeah, this is aweomse, but I'm still cautious. When Lego made Pirates, they made them all cartoony and gross. I remmeber fondly to when me and my broskie would custom-make the entire party of LoTR. ONE EACH! We each had our own Aragon, Frodo, nine Black Riders, Gandalf, the lot of them. We would combine them wit other movie/book characters and make about a 50 man strong adventuring party and build landscapes and dungeons that were literally several meters square and up to four feet tall.

Oh the memories. :wub: Here's to hoping that Lego does LoTR right and doesn't just decal slap scenery and give us a bunch of cartoony hairstyles and the lot.

Harry Potter put 4 on one disc, while Star Wars was originally just 3 on one. Indiana Jones 1 was 3 movies on one disc, but IJ2 was 4 movies, spaced out awfully into something around...6? 1 hub for the first 3, then like, 3 hubs for the fourth movie. So, anything is possible.

This is quite amazing and I'm sure it'll get a crap load of sales.

Too bad I've been done with LEGO for like, 4 years.
