The LEGO Group, in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products, today announced the much-anticipated #10316 LEGO Icons The Lord of the Rings Rivendell set, inspired by the award-winning film adaptations. This highly detailed, 6,167-piece set features the iconic Elven stronghold from Middle-Earth and comes complete with fifteen 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.
The set measures over 15 in. (39 cm) high, 29.5 in. (75 cm) wide, and 19.5 in. (50 cm) deep and splits into three sections: the tower, the council ring, and the gazebo with river and bridge. Below is the breakdown of the sections.
Section 1, featuring:
- 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 discusses 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
Section 2, featuring:
- An elven tower – featuring five elven statues of unnamed famous warriors from the past
Section 3, featuring:
- Gazebo, river, and bridge – to recreate the scene where the Fellowship departs Rivendell.
The set also comes with fifteen minifigures – including all nine members of the 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, and Bilbo Baggins, plus additional elves and a dwarf (Gloin) are also included.
LEGO and The Lord of the Rings fans alike will also receive 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 numerous dwarven axes and elvish blades to ensure the Fellowship are well armed for their quest ahead.
Talking about the set, LEGO Design Master, Mike Psaiki said, “We know many of our fans have been anticipating a set like this for a long-time – but a great LEGO Lord of the Rings set is never late, it arrives precisely when it means to! It was important to us that we created something really special in this recreation of Rivendell. We aimed to add as much detail as possible and create an engaging experience throughout the build to delight fans recreating scenes or proudly displaying Elrond’s home. We are really pleased with the final design and how we have brought Rivendell to life in brick form.”

Woah… One set to rule them all. 🙂
“My precious and I wants it”. So, I’m going to raid a dwarves Mountain and take their treasure. Kill off a few Orcs on the way and get me this set. Because I know I don’t have $500 (nor will I’ll ever have $500 to spend). Can’t have it all. But,I do have a lot of the older sets from Lord of the rings and the hobbit.
Incredible! Just Incredible!
Beautiful set. I love the roof. I’m surprised they are bringing back LOTR though. And with such a big set! LEGO was a lot more conservative with previous releases.
Alas, there are no smaller sets…
…except for some pretty irrelevant BrickHeadz…
I am disappointed that the VIP special is just the BrickHeadz instead of something cool like Yoda’s lightsaber. Gandalf’s wagon or Bag End would have been awesome.
Yes, the freebie could have been a lot better. It seems like they threw that in there without much thought. I think they know that people who want this set will buy it whether there is a freebie or not so they didn’t have to try too hard.
Damn expensive, but so good! I was dreaming about a set like this years ago! Sadly, I don’t think I can justify spending 500 bucks on a single lego set. But it’s beautiful!
Aligning all those tiles on the roof is going to be a major pita. But the set looks amazing. So happy they are bringing back this theme!
Wow. People talk about the roof being pretty, but look at all the detailed work with the white curvy pieces! And those chairs made with popsicles and sausages are awesome!
