Since Lord of the Rings came to the big screen the movie merchandise has been phenomenal, and with the release of The Hobit that love for the franchise has been renewed once again. We’ve seen some great and weird stuff over the years, but this latest LOTR LEGO The Tower of Orthanc will be awesome once released.
The huge structure has been the talk of LEGO and LOTR fans since the start of the year, so nice to know that this item has finally been made official. The Tower of Orthanc LEGO set will stand two-foot tall, so will be an inspiring piece in your bedroom, or wherever you keep your collection.
That’s right, it’s not just children who will enjoy owning this collectable item, but die-hard fans of the franchise as well. I have to say, it does look awesome in the video below, but I’ve seen better, such as the Lord of the Rings chess sets from when The Fellowship was first released.
However, before you get too excited, some Tolkien fans might get a little upset, as we know LEGO always takes liberties and stretches things a little, so all might not be how it should. While the outside looks to be on the money in terms of looks compared to what we saw in the movies, it’s when you open the LOTR LEGO Tower of Orthanc that things look a little strange, as the designers were allowed more creative flexibility.
However, if you watch the video we are sure you most of you will be lenient because of it being made from LEGO. If you have not been put off by the design, then the Lord of the Rings Tower of Orthanc LEGO set $199.99 price might.
