Lego's $500 Lord Of The Rings Rivendell Set Will Let You Form Your Own Fellowship
The fellowship of the brick.
Lego is returning to Middle-earth with its next playset, a gigantic replica of the Elf stronghold of Rivendell. One of the biggest playsets that Lego has ever produced, the Rivendell set is made up of 6,167 Lego pieces and comes with 15 mini-figures, including Frodo, Sam, Bilbo Baggins, Boromir, Gimli, Aragorn, Legolas, and Gandalf the Grey. Yes, you'll be able to form your very own tiny and adorable fellowship.
According to Lego, the Rivendell set is decorated with foliage, including an elven forge, Elrond's cluttered study, the Shards of Narsil, plus paintings and statues from the history of Middle-earth. There are references to director Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings film trilogy throughout the set, and you can recreate iconic moments such as the Council of Elrond scene. Just remember to stop Gimli from smashing the one Ring of power with his axe.
You'll need to make some space for this Lego kit once it has been built, as it measures over 15 inches in height, 29.5 inches in width, and it's 19.5 inches deep. Alternatively, you can split it into three sections, and place the tower, the council ring, and the gazebo with river and bridge in various spots around your home.
The Rivendell set will be released on March 8, and will cost $500. This isn't the first time that Lego has ventured into the realms of Mordor and Gondor, as the toy company did release a Lord of the Rings series of playsets from 2012-2013.
This is easily the biggest LOTR set though, dwarfing the likes of the Tower of Orthanc, the Battle of Helm's Deep, and the Mines of Moria. There was also a Hobbit series released in 2014, with the largest set from that collection being the 866-piece Lonely Mountain.
