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?
