LEGO has revealed a new set based on The Lord of the Rings. It’s a huge Rivendell set that comes with 6,167 pieces. The set will be available exclusively at the LEGO Store and it will cost you $499.99. It’s set to release on March 5 for LEGO Store VIP members and March 8 for everyone else. You can sign up to become a VIP member here for free. No preorders are available, so you’ll have to visit the LEGO Store before it goes on sale to order.
The Lord of the Rings fans will remember Rivendell is the ornate forest dwelling of Elrond and other elves of Middle-earth. It’s where the gang gets together to embark on their journey to destroy the ring in The Fellowship of the Ring.
To show that famous scene, the set comes with 15 minifigures, including all nine members of the Fellowship.
The set is composed of three sections and a number of rooms revealed in the movie. There’s the Council Ring, where the group talks about what to do with the ring. There’s Frodo’s bedroom, where he heals after being injured by the Ringwraiths. Also contained are Elrond’s study, an elven tower, a gazebo, a river, and a bridge.
