We've seen a lot of teases that this might be heading our way, but LEGO, in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery, has finally announced (via SFFGazette.com) the highly-anticipated LEGO Icons The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell set, inspired by Peter Jackson's award-winning film adaptations.
This highly detailed, 6,167-piece set features the iconic Elven stronghold from Middle-earth and comes complete with a whopping 15 minifigures.
Home to the house of Elrond, Rivendell is a key location in Middle-earth and events of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, as the place where the Fellowship was formed and the quest to destroy the One Ring began. Packed with fan favourite moments and Easter eggs, it can be built in three sections including:
• The Council Ring – complete with a semicircular ring of chairs for the council and the plinth where the ring is first revealed and the Fellowship discuss how to destroy it
• Frodo’s Bedroom – with a desk and chest where the young hobbit recovers following his rescue by Arwen from the hands of the Nazgûl, before being reunited with Bilbo
• Elrond’s study – with famous paintings from the history of Middle-earth
• An elven tower – featuring five Elven statues of unnamed famous warriors from the past
• Gazebo, river and bridge – to recreate the scene where the Fellowship departs Rivendell.
As for those 15 minifigures, you get the entire Fellowship; Gandalf the Grey, all four hobbits (Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, Merriadoc "Merry" Brandybuck and Peregrin "Pippin" Took), Legolas, Gimli, Boromir and Aragorn. They are joined by minifigures of Elrond, Arwen, Bilbo Baggins, and additional elves and a dwarf (Gloin).
The set will also include several new LEGO elements from the world of Middle-earth, including Bilbo's sword, Sting, the broken shards of Narsil, Aragorn's ranger sword, Boromir's sword, as well as a variety of dwarven axes and elvish blades to ensure the Fellowship are well armed for their quest ahead.
The LEGO The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell set won't be cheap as it has an RRP of £429.99/$499.99/€499.99. It's set to be available exclusively for LEGO VIP members from March 5 - 7, before going on general sale on March 8.
