    It looks great, wow! But the price, dang!

    The eye uses two fenders? That smart and effective! And I like what they did with the orange bits around it. Nice set, but all I can think about is how to keep it free of dust. 😀

    Maybe it’s the angles, but the tower looks a little short and stocky to me. But I do like the other details. I suppose it could be made taller, but like others said, the price is out of hand.

    The use of the brownish pieces around the eye is a technique I haven’t seen before. It basically stimulates the glow of the eye reflecting on the shiny black surface of the tower. A brilliant technique!

      Oh, nice! I didn’t even notice that until you mentioned it. I agree, it’s a great technique. Now I’m thinking where could I use it in my own mocs.

      Also, notice that at the foot of the tower Frodo and Sam are wearing Orc helmets! All the figs are awesome!

    I like the brickwork at the bottom and the brownish bits around the eye. And the minifigs. But I don’t think I will get this set. It’s too expensive and I have no room for it.

    “LEGO fans with more than one copy of the set will be able to stack this section to build a taller tower.”

    Ha! Then put me down for three!

    I don’t know why people are complaining about this Lego tower not being tall enough. It looks about a meter tall, which is very very tall for a Lego set! And in deed over the past few years, Lego has been churning out sets with relatively large height from time to time, the two that immediately come to mind are the 1.5 metre tall Eiffel Tower set and the Disney Cinderella \ Sleeping Beauty Castle sets, which also appears to be about a 70 cm tall.
