New LEGO Lord Of The Rings set announced, and it's beautiful

New LEGO Lord Of The Rings set announced, and it's beautiful

A heavily-requested LEGO Lord Of The Rings set has been announced, and it's huge.

LEGO has announced the next Lord Of The Rings set, and it's a massive set of Sauron's fortress Barad-dûr, topped off with the terrifying Eye of Sauron which lights up.

The set is 5,481 pieces, and costs $459.99 (£399.99). Ten minifigures also come with the set: Sauron, Mouth of Sauron, an Orc, Frodo, Sam, Gollum and Gothmog. It can only be purchased through the LEGO store on June 4, though LEGO insiders can buy the set from the start of next month, June 1.

The tower measures 73cm tall, 45cm wide and 30cm deep, making it one of the biggest LEGO sets of all time. In an additional twist to the already massive set, LEGO has said that if you buy additional copies of the tower you can stack them on top of each other in order to make the ultimate menace for Middle-Earth. Purchasing the Barad-dûr set between June 1-7 nets you the Fell Beast set for free, a 269 piece set that also comes with a Nazgul minifigure.

"Prepare to journey deep into the heart of Middle-earth with the unveiling of the spectacular LEGO icons The Lord of the Rings: Barad-Dûr set! With its imposing 5,471 pieces, this awe-inspiring masterpiece brings to life the dark tower of Mordor in stunning detail, packed with thrilling features and beloved characters from the timeless trilogy. The journey through the dark tower continues with the throne room - which includes a compartment that opens to reveal a map, and a ladder on the top floor of the tower that can be moved left and right," the official LEGO blog wrote about the new set.

The news comes just after a brand new Lord of the Rings film centered around Gollum was announced by Warner Bros and Peter Jackson, due for release in 2026.
