It was only a few days ago when I shared with you the first images of the LEGO Lord of the Rings minifigures. This morning I got an email from my contact at LEGO with further images of the upcoming LEGO Lord of the Rings characters. (You can read my previous post here: LEGO Lord of the Rings Minifigures - Pictures)
The first image is the fourth in the series of posters released by LEGO, featuring one of the most interesting Lord of the Rings characters; Gollum. I’m not sure if LEGO is planning to release a separate poster for each of the LEGO Lord of the Rings characters – it would be pretty sweet. Here are the other three posters released so far:
The following image is a line-up of the Fellowship of the Ring, aka. the LEGO Lord of the Rings “good-guys”: Legolas – the elf, Boromir, Aragorn, Gandalf the Gray, Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin – the hobbits, and Gimli – the dwarf. (Click on the image for full view.)
And here we have the LEGO Lord of the Rings ‘bad-guys”: an Uruk-hai, Gollum, a Ringwraith, an Orc of Moria, and an Orc of Mordor. (Click on the image for full view.)
I really like the “good-guys”, as I have mentioned in the previous post. As far as the baddies go, I absolutely love the Uruk-hai and can see myself getting a whole army of those savages. I like the Orcs too. It appears that their ear is part of the hair-attachment, like on the LEGO elves, but longer and pointier. Nicely done! The Ringwraith looks scary enough, although it would have been nice if they are taller to make them more menacing. And I’m not so sure about Gollum. I appreciate that LEGO didn’t go with just a short-legged minifig, but put some serious effort into creating a new mold. Gollum is not an easy character to put into LEGO-form, so all in all I’m not disappointed, but I think he could be better. And he definitely needs a fish!
Here are close-ups for each of the LEGO Lord of the Rings minifigures for your further viewing pleasure! These are from LEGO’s Facebook Page. Click on any of the images to enlarge. (Thanks, Chris, for the link!)
