With Lord of the Rings [LOTR] having been a mainstay in the science fiction and fantasy kingdoms of the past decade or so, and a obsession with some MOC buiders its only obvious that LEGO need release its own official product line for the quite successful series. And here we are.
Earlier today, Warner Bros™ and LEGO agreed to the licensing the series of The Lord Of the Rings to the toy giant and includes the permission to use a vast array of characters and various scenes from the series. Building Sets based on the first three films will be available as of June 2012 in numerous local retailers in the United States. An expected follow-up wave will consist of buiding sets based of the events described in "The Hobbit" which will be available late 2012.
These products will certianly provide a much needed change of scenery in the LEGO Communities of Flikr and Youtube and will also blossom into many unimaginably ingenuitive creations. Stay tuned for Pre-release photos, concept reviews, and updates on the upcoming MARVEL™ SuperHeroes Sets and more!
