The Fellowship of the Ring in LEGO!!! And a Bunch of Other Lego LOTR News!

I saw this, and… I pooped my pants. OMG THIS IS AMAZING!!! Look at the one ring to rule them all! Look at the adorable little hobbitses with their little specially printed shirts and sculpted hair! Look at Gimli and Gandalf in all there glory! And Aragorn, Boromir, and the ever elvishly epic Legolas. They all look soooooooo perfect!

Aside from the overly drool worthy fellowship of the ring, we also have information on all the sets in the first wave of the Lord of the Rings line thanks to a toy fair going on in London. I’ve looked through a couple of sources with great descriptions and have made the following guide with information on the 7 announced Lord of the Rings sets. Currently, there are no leaked images of the final sets (aside from this overhead shot that nets a small glipse), but I will post them if I find any. Without further ado, check it out.

9469, Gandalf Arrives: 2 minifigs: Gandalf and Frodo. Gandalf on horse and cart with fireworks and snake in the back. The smallest set in the line.

9470, Shelob Attacks: 3 minifigs: Frodo, Samwise, and Gollum. Gollum looked great, hunched over with movable arms, a bit like skeleton arms but different. Shelob the spider looks fantastic and scary!

9471, Uruk-Hai Army: 6 minifigs: Eomer, Rohan soldier and 4 Urak-Hai. The set consists of a small section of wall, a horse with moving legs and a small siege machine. The wall can be joined to the Helms Deep castle.

9476, The Orc Forge: 5 orcs with a forge, various metalworking tools and weapons. Similar in looks to the Lego Dwarves Mine… but with orcs instead of dwarves.

9472, Attack on Weathertop: 5 minifigs: Frodo, Merry, Aragorn and two Ringwaiths on horseback. The set builds a small section of Weathertop with spiral staircase and ruins at the top.

9473, The Mines of Moria: 7 minifigs: Pippin, Gimli, Legolas, Boromir, a cave troll and two Moria orcs. The set builds a selection of sub-assemblies for mine walls, doors, pedestals etc.

9474, The Battle of Helm’s Deep: 8 minifigs: Gimli, King Theoden, Haldir, Aragorn and 4 Urak-Hai warriors. The castle itself is fairly substantial, complete with the ‘side door’ used to gain entry.

    OH MAN.
    So epic. can’t contain fangirlish squees!!!! >.<
    Although it's almost sad that Aragorn's eyes had to be rendered to minifig-black. The blue really jumped out…. Ah well. XD
    They did a stunningly great job with Gandalf and Legolas though!! =D
    Mwahahah, lavishly lustrous Legolas… XDDDD
