Please note that the set-box shown below is a preliminary image. Also, you will see that the minifigs have stickered faces as the final print was not ready for the toy-fair.

    I will say two things: one, is I am really glad they made some “battle pack-esce” sets Although The Orc Forge and Uruk-hai Army sets are a little more expensive then I would like for a battle pack, they are great in the figures that they have. Second, I love Shelob. I just wished that Aragog from Hagid’s Hut looked that good.

  • Chris February 21, 2012, 12:09 PM

    Amazing sets. I’ll be getting Shelob and Gandalf Arrives sets as soon as they hit stores.

  • Sarah February 21, 2012, 12:26 PM

    *drool* I love these sets! The details on the minifigures and their accessories is just amazing!! I can’t wait for these to come out. I just hope we’ll have some money to buy extras to build with, but there’s going to be so much to buy this summer with Monster Fighters, Marvel, Minifigure Series and some of the Friends sets…gonna definitely be broke this year, but rich in LEGO. lol! 😀

    • admin February 21, 2012, 1:32 PM

      Sarah, yeah, this is going to be an expensive year! But there is no reason to worry; the world supposed to end by December of 2012 anyway, so we might as well die with all the LEGO we can get! 😉

      • Sarah February 21, 2012, 6:36 PM

        ROFL! Good thinking. That’s my goal for this year – buy as much LEGO as possible so I can die happy. 😉

        • lloyd zx March 6, 2012, 7:57 AM

          ME PRECIOUS!!!!!!! I love the sets. I do not know how I’ll manage either, though. I had my eyes set on the ultra sonic raider from ninjago, but now I also want the attack on helm’s deep and the attack on weathertop!!

          • admin March 6, 2012, 10:03 AM

            Lloyd, the only solution is to get RICH! 😀

  • alec February 21, 2012, 6:01 PM

    I really like the uruk hai army set! 6 minifigs make it a great army builder. I just wish it were 25 or 20$ Also the orc forge looks cool as well. I love the printing on the orcs and the weapon forge looks like a nice addition to my orc army/camp. In my opinion Helms deep looks out of proportion and overpriced but I really like the detail on the elf. I hope they make a jumbo size collecters series of helms deep and minas tirith just like the starwars collectors series. A 5,000 piece version would be really awesome!

    • admin February 21, 2012, 9:51 PM

      Alec, that is a great idea about a collector series Helms Deep or Minas Tirith! I would love to see that! 😀

      • Alec February 21, 2012, 10:47 PM

        I wonder if someone made a project on that cuusoo website if it could get enough supporters to have a LOTR collecters series come true. That would be great! 🙂 I’m still mindboggled lego minecraft would get 10,000 supporters.

  • Justin February 21, 2012, 11:32 PM

    Hi there, can’t wait to get my hands on some of the LOTR sets like Helms Deep and Mines of Moria because of what I remember from the scenes from the films..

    Oh yeah, I wanted to look at an old article here and I looked quite long for it, I think it would be useful if your website had a SEARCH BAR, that would have helped me.. Cheers!

  • Chris February 22, 2012, 12:20 AM

    There’s a search box on the left side of the page. It’s below the links.

    • admin February 22, 2012, 10:07 AM

      Thanks, Chris! I actually use that search box myself when I forget wher I put a post. It comes quite handy. 😉
      Justin, if you still have trouble finding what you are looking for, just let me know. 🙂

  • Justin February 22, 2012, 3:40 AM

    oh thanks, totally missed it..

  • Carium February 22, 2012, 8:41 AM

    it looks way better than i expected after the first unofficial pics. can´t wait for it!

  • nimjaelf February 22, 2012, 10:40 AM

    looking epic!

  • Quad February 22, 2012, 1:22 PM

    That new horse design look great! Now our horses can move their neck and hind legs. 🙂
    And that large cave troll looks like it would be a great mold for a rancor in the star wars line.

  • Nick Nox February 22, 2012, 3:26 PM

    Awesomeness, Love the cave troll 😀 Why are the Uruk-hai red though (faces and arms)?

  • Ninja master February 23, 2012, 10:04 PM

    They look pretty cool, but there isnt very much of the hobbit.

    • admin February 23, 2012, 10:09 PM

      Ninja Master, The Hobbit movie is not coming out until December. LEGO sets based on that story will correspond with the release of the film. 🙂

  • Frodo66 February 25, 2012, 8:27 AM

    I am a huge LotR fan and the sets look amazing!! i am getting the Shelob Attacks set but admin, the bible says that “no man shall know the end.” I will definitely have three or four of these sets on my birthday list, as well as the hobbit sets!!

    • admin February 25, 2012, 9:02 AM

      Frodo, yes, the new LOTR sets are awesome. My comment about the end coming soon was a joke. 😉

  • Frodo66 February 27, 2012, 6:27 PM

    again i like the sets but the weathertop set is a expensive!!

    • lloyd zx March 9, 2012, 9:46 PM

      I agree about the weathertop set. It does not look as expensive as it is.

  • LOLZ@LIFE March 1, 2012, 2:37 PM

    I hope there Re some elf sets other than helms deep cuz it’s a bit pricy

    • admin March 1, 2012, 3:21 PM

      Yes, I hope so too! I expect that LEGO will make some battle-packs to boost your armies. 🙂

  • LOLZ@LIFE March 1, 2012, 2:40 PM

    Ooh! And maybe a haradrim set as well!

  • admin March 3, 2012, 10:32 PM

    UPDATE: I just posted some review videos of the upcoming Lord of the Rings sets. See here: LEGO Lord of the Rings Videos. Enjoy! 😀

  • lloyd zx March 6, 2012, 4:19 PM

    One other thing: Where is Sauron and Sauraman? Also, I think the Mines of Moriah should have a balrog.

  • lloyd zx March 6, 2012, 4:21 PM

    The elf from lego minifigures will go along perfectly with this theme! I only hope they keep this theme for years and years like they have lego star wars! P.S. I think they would need to have it for at least a few years to have a reasonably good collection of lord of the rings sets and actually allow you to play out more.

    • admin March 6, 2012, 8:24 PM

      Lloyd, I certainly hope so! 😀

  • lloyd zx March 6, 2012, 4:21 PM

    Elrond’s house would be a nice set, too.

  • bigmac March 8, 2012, 12:41 AM

    lutrz comes in the Orc forge set hes the one on the right!

  • jay ZX March 10, 2012, 4:39 PM

    OMG theese are like HARDCORE the new sets like im gonnna have to do a full 24 hours work a thon.lol because theres like monster fighters super heros new ninjago new star wars and the mabey even series 7 minifigures! and now THIS. boy i’m never gonna get eve HALF of these amaizing sets!:)

    • admin March 10, 2012, 5:48 PM

      Yeah, better start savin’! :mrgreen:

  • Gandalf147 March 19, 2012, 8:02 AM

    The sets are pretty cool and the prices are better than most lego sets but, the weathertop set is just expensive and next to that it does not look like much of a set.

  • Lurtz455 March 25, 2012, 12:40 AM

    Can’t wait till the sets come out! – Compared to other sets these are cheap and they got alot of people in most of them which i like alot =D i hope to get more money so i can afford all the sets and game 🙂

  • Deathleech May 4, 2012, 3:16 PM

    I actually really like the Uruk-Hai Army set. Sure it’s a little pricey, but you can use the wall section with the Helm’s Deep set to add extra length to the wall. Very cool! Plus you get the catapult along with the 6 figures and horse so I don’t think 40 bucks is too much. Maybe 35, but any lower would be a steal. My only grip is you only get one Rohan Soldier with it and Eomar. I would rather of seen Eomar in another set (Helm’s Deep?)and made it 2 Rohan Soldiers instead in the army pack. Not a huge deal though.

    I do hope in the future these sets go over really well and we see more Army builder sets like the Uruk-Hai one. I would love to see a “good guy” set with more Rohan or Minas Tirith soldiers, as well as a Warg pack, and a Moria Orc pack w/Cave troll (blast the only Cave troll and Moria orcs being in an 80 dollar set! 🙁 )

    • admin May 4, 2012, 6:25 PM

      Dathleech, great thoughts! I also hope there is going to be many more battle packs! After all the armies in LOTR were huge! This is a theme LEGO fans have been dreaming about for years, so I’m sure LEGO will give us many more sets in the next few years. 🙂

      • Deathleech May 5, 2012, 2:46 PM

        I sure hope so. I really can’t imagine Lego not making more LotR sets though. If they went through the trouble of obtaining the license and creating tons of new pieces for the line surely they will want to get their monies worth.

        Plus we saw most the main good characters covered already, but there was no Saruman or Sauron in any of these sets. Obviously they will want to make some sets to include them seeing as they are two of the main evils in the LotR universe.

        • admin May 5, 2012, 9:53 PM

          Good points. Also, none of the ladies are made so far. I mean they were really major characters! Without them half of the story is lost! 🙁

    • Joshua Stewart June 27, 2012, 4:44 AM

      I reckon have an elf insted of Eomar, and Legolas insted of that suicide orc

  • Legolasboy May 6, 2012, 9:06 PM

    i want all of them,and i hope i can create a orc army including urik-hia , morder orcs , and moria orcs.i wish the sets had more orcs or more urik’s becuz if you have read the books like me you would know that aragorn, gimli, haldir, legolas,and just about everyone else slaughters orcs so it would not make sense if ther wasnt a lot of orc legos than the sets wouldnt really lead up to expectations but really good! why r the ukik’s red?

    • admin May 6, 2012, 9:45 PM

      Yes, we need lots and lots of orcs! I believe the uruk-hai are actually dark-red (maroon); probably just to highlight their evilness and their face-paint. 😈

  • Lurtz455 May 8, 2012, 3:46 AM

    If i get the Helms Deep set and 2 Uruk Hai battle packs will i beable to put both of the extra wall parts from the battle packs onto the helms deep wall?

    • admin May 8, 2012, 8:33 AM

      Yeah, sure! Why not? LEGO can be mixed in any way you want! 😀

      • Lurtz455 May 10, 2012, 3:53 AM

        SWEET i am gonna have so much fun with these 😀

  • Scott May 8, 2012, 10:00 AM

    I thought I had finally broken the Lego habit. Finally sold all my Lego Star Wars sets. Now, I foresee another addiction.

    • admin May 8, 2012, 10:25 AM

      Scott, LEGO is a great hobby. It is clean, creative and compared to other hobbies not that expensive. But it does require some management of space and $$$. Personally I buy only sets that I really-really like, as I don’t have the room for a big collection. Also, I’m a builder, not a collector. As far as money, I own all my LEGO free and clear as I’m also a BrickLink seller. BrickLink is a great way to fund your hobby so there is no financial stress over it. 😉

      I think the LEGO fans who suffer the most are those with a collector’s mindset, who want to own everything LEGO makes in a certain theme; which is a lot! Since I’m a builder it is easier for me to manage my hobby, but it may be worth to start a discussion on how to keep the LEGO hobby enjoyable without any strains, as it does have the potential to get out of hand. 🙁

      • Scott May 9, 2012, 12:28 AM

        I think you might have taken my comment too seriously. 😉

        • admin May 9, 2012, 8:46 AM

          Scott, better to take things like that seriously unless indicated otherwise. I’m glad LEGO addiction is not a problem for you, however there are people who have serious issues with LEGO. It can in fact become an addiction (just like anything else); jeopardizing a person’s relationships and financial well-being. I have been around the LEGO community long enough to hear sad stories like that; especially about SW collectors. If not managed properly that theme has one of the worst reputations for getting out of hand. 🙁

  • Frank May 11, 2012, 5:12 PM

    I want Shelob. Not because of the spider, But I must have Gollum. He’s my favorite character in the entire series. It would’ve been awesome if they included the Balrog in mines of moria or create a separate bridge of Khazad dum

    • admin May 11, 2012, 5:39 PM

      Frank, yes, Gollum is probably one of the most complex characters in movie history. He is truly fascinating in all aspects. A Balrog would be SO AWESOME! But it is such a heartbreaking scene. I cry every time I watch it. 😥

  • Joshua Stewart June 27, 2012, 4:37 AM

    I would love a battle of helms deep and Urik-Hai army. Pity they dont have Legolas in it

  • Joshua Stewart June 27, 2012, 4:38 AM

    Pardon my poor grammor and spelling

  • miles December 31, 2012, 11:55 AM

    I like the last one more then all them
