As if the release of The Hobbit weren’t enough to send fans of Middle-earth into a frenzy, LEGO have announced a new Lord Of The Rings collection featuring the heroes and villains of the J.R.R Tolkien trilogy.
A deal was signed last year to allow the toy company access to the rights to all characters and settings from the LOTR trilogy, as well as the upcoming adaptation of The Hobbit.
The first range of LEGO products is expected to arrive in December, ahead of The Hobbit’s release, and will be a heroes collection, featuring the likes of Frodo, Aragorn and Gandalf (in his traditional grey attire).
After that will come a small range of villains, including the Orcs of Moria, a Ringwraith and Gollum. Whether or not a Lego Eye of Sauron will be released remains to be seen, but we can only hope so.
We’d like to pretend that we’re too grown up to be hopelessly excited by this, but there it is… we aren’t. This year’s Christmas list has just written itself…
How badly do you want these? Be honest, below...
