Here Comes The Lord Of The Rings And Hobbit Lego

Nicely done, Lego.

The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit have been licensed for tie-in Lego toys, with the first sets seeing release next Summer.There’s already an official site (thanks to The One Ring for the tip-off) and one promotional image:

Judging from the sheer Elijah Woodness of that chap, I’m saying the tie-in is specifically to the movies and not the original novels.

Already I’ve got two things I really want to see:

  • The Gollum Mini-fig
  • A Middle Earth equivalent of that Lego Star Wars cartoon that came out recently.

Is it too early for me to put some Rings Lego on a letter to Santa for next year?
