So we all probably know that we will be getting LOTR LEGO next year.
Post your ideas for sets here.
Here are some of mine.
1. Uruk-hai battle pack with two Uruk soldiers, a Berzerker and an Uruk captain (either Ugluk or Lurtz). Also a small catapult maybe.

2. Rohirrim battle pack with two Rohirrim footmen, one horseman and a captain. Maybe some extra accessories like horse equipment and weapons.

Thats just a few of my ideas. What are yours?

"Amon Hen" with the old tower, the Fellowship, Lurtz, some Uruks and Frodo's elven boat

"The Mines of Moria" (including The Fellowship, Balin's tomb, cave troll and orcs)

"Helms Deep" (minifig size or just the first wall) + Elven battlepacks and rohirrim and Uruk-Hai battlepacks for this set.

Weathertop! there would be the ruins, three Black Riders, Frodo and Aragorn. Also a Warg battle pack, Gondor soldier battle pack, which would come with four Gondor soldiers, a catapult, and a weapon rack. Just some ideas!

A minifigure collection of the fellowship! Also an orc camp from the last movie, when all the orcs are marching to the black gates of mordor. it would have a tent, a camp fire, a goblin, an uruk-hi, and the commander dude with the whip. it would also come with like a weapon crate or something.

Helm's Deep- $100 The biggest set complete with a small catapult, part of a castle. 2 Orcs, 2 Rohan soldiers, 1 scared villager, and Gimli/Legolas.

Elf Battle Pack- $10 (Hopefully. Probably just going to be a mediocre knight one.) A horse and plants included in some landscape.

Orc Battle Pack- $10 (one Urk-hai, three Orcs) Comes with a tent and fireplace. Also spare weapons.

Sauron's fortress- $60 Frodo, Sam, Aragorn, Eye of Sauron, and Orc. Also with opening Black Gates.

The Orthank- $35 Treebeard, Gandalf, Saruman, and Orc. Orthank tower included.

That's all I got for now. :)

Here are some of my ideas; the wave will be a close mirror to that of the Pirates of the Caribbean wave this year, featuring both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings film sets:

Wave I

1. US $10.99: Gollum's Cave
Minifigures: Gollum, Bilbo.
Prop(s)/Structure(s): A small buildable rowboat with oars and a creek with a rock to hide in the One Ring (but technically there are two One Rings; they come together in a small packet).

2. US $24.99: The Shire
Minifigures: Frodo, Sam, Nazgūl
Prop(s)/Structure(s): A Hobbit hole with slopes forming the hill side and a chimney sticking out from the right; the main structure features an opening and closing door and a handle able to place on a bucket. Inside is a tiled floor, chimney, table, and a bookshelf. The set also includes a tree hillside mimicking the scene in which the Nazgūl hunches over top of the hobbits hiding underneath the tree. A tree is mounted across the right side and features a catapult to launch rocks at the horse and its Nazgūl rider.

^ These are my ideas on the top of my head at the moment. More may be coming. ^

Making the scene where the hobbits hide underneath the tree is a great idea, but I would make a bigger set of scenes the Shire, because it's very popular and collectors would expect a bigger set.

I thought about this, and decided I DON'T want Lego to make LOTR things- why? Because it would be no fun to make all these LOTR things- there would be a "correct" character for each individual person- rather than the current millions. making LOTR stuff would be no-where near as fun... what do you think?

making the battle of Dagorlad is an excellent idea! I would add Elendil, though. It's also for sure that they will make battlepacks for a movie like LOTR, because many people would buy tons of them.

Actually, I was thinking that there could be, perhaps, two Hobbit Hole sets: one for a actual wave (like I have just mentioned earlier on) and then another 'Ultimate Collector's Edition' outside of a wave for The Hobbit films, ranging US $199.99 through US $299.99. It could include all thirteen Dwarves, Bilbo, and Gandalf the Grey.

Sounds great! I would definitely collect all thirteen dwarves and and different armies of men, elves and dwarves. Another idea would be that you can combine the different locations of the Shire: Bag End, The Green Dragon, The Party Tree, Hamfast Gamgee's house etc.

That scene may have played a significant part of the film, but the structure was not. I suggest it ranging around US $10.99 for that reason and include the chief characters of that scene: Frodo, Boromir, Lurtz, and an Uruk.

Umm, no - not true. Look at sets like "Ambush in Cairo" from 2008 and the battle packs.

Hmm... 'Not very often' doesn't mean 'never', but as a LEGO collector you should have noticed that many small sets are definitely more like '14.99' than '6.99' or '9.99'

I was going by the United States' standards, as here there aren't any $14.99 sets available; there are $9.99, $10.99, and $19.99, but not any that are $14.99.

Really? Do you mean these sets:

They are 14.99 here in Germany. :(

I can understand you. LEGO LOTR is a very difficult question. On the one hand it would be nice to see the new minifig designs, on the other hand it will have a bearing on our creativity. The new LOTR creations on MOCpages also wouldn't be as interesting as before, because most of us would use the same minifigs as the others.

The set isn't the biggest problem, it's the minifigs...

I also agree with Ian and Tim. LOTR LEGO would stink. It would ruin the creativity of all LOTR lego builders. I mean, who makes POTC, HP, IJ, or POP legos on the pages any more. Very few. Compared to the HUGE amount of LOTR builders. But, of course, I must submit my ideas for LOTR Lego.

As a first wave, LEGO usually has one set for every price bracket: $10.99; 19.99; 24.99; 29.99; 39.99; 49.99; 69.99; 99.99; 129.99; and maybe a collecters 199.99.

So a first wave might look like:

$10.99: Gollum's Cave
Figs - Bilbo, Gollum

Small cave with ring, some water, Gollums rock and 'beach' for bilbo. Minimal rock work like in Isla de Muerta

$19.99: Mount Doom
Figs - Sam (Rugged Clothing), Frodo (Rugged Clothing), and Gollum

Basic cleft, with some new curved red-orange trans lava elements. Perhaps some new looking LURPS/BURPS for the rock wall.

$24.99 - Saruman's Lair
Figs - Wormtounge, Gandalf the Grey, Saruman

An easy interchangable set with a new Palantir, new black pieces and can be played with either Wormtongue and Saruman's 'bomb' or Gandalf and the wizards duel.

$29.99 - Treebeard
Figs - Merry, Pippin

This would be a neat semi-large set with treebeard being the biggest construction element. Merry and Pippin come along with it.

$39.99 - Amon Hen
Figs - Legolas, Gimli, Boromir, Aragorn, Lurtz, Orc

Much like the POTC 'Cannibal Escape', basic trees, scattered implats (in this case the watchtower) and several figs. Too much space to cover for LEGO to ever do a full diorama in the $100 range.

$49.99 - The Death of Smaug
Figs - Bard, Villiagers x3

Much like Ian Spacek's vignette of this scene, it would be a direct scene from the new movie with less figs but more pieces and a new Smaug.

$69.99 - The Prancing Pony
Figs - Merry, Pippin, Frodo, Sam, Butterbur, Aragorn (Strider), Nazgul x2

Similar in design to the Medieval Market villiage houses, it will be downscaled with the basic elements in the different sections: stable, bar, tables, and the hobbit's room.

$99.99 - Weathertop
Figs - Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin, Aragorn (Strider), Nazgul x3

A large Weathertop on a 32x32, it will include the niche in the side where the hobbits eat. Very good set.

$129.99 - Minas Tirith
Figs - Gandalf the White, Pippin, Gondorians x3
Orcs x3, Haradrim x2, Rohan Riders x3

A chance for LEGO to re-use the elephant (Oliphant) piece, and with many figs like the HP diagon alley, it will be a wall section including the gate and mostly figs and war.

$199.99 - Collecters Edition Bag End
Figs- Gandalf the Grey, Frodo Baggins, Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield, other 12 dwarfs.

Just what it sounds like. :)

$399.99 - Collecter Edition Barad Dur
Figs - None

Like the huge Death Star with no figs from a couple years ago, this will be purely bricks.

I hope you like my speculations. Cheers!

I agree with most of your ideas, except for reusing the elephant for the Oliphant, because they have distinct differences. Oiliphants are much larger, and have six tusks.

All you would have to do is add things to it. I think using the elephant for the Oliphaunt would work very well as long as you added certain pieces here and there.

I like taking existing figures and modifying them a little. Usually this consists of switching out legs or arms. Without the base of the official figure, this is impossible. The only way you can make good minifigures from scratch is if you have a huge collection, or you use decals. Even then there's a good chance you can't do everything well. That's just my opinion.

Same here, I will likely build more LOTR MOCs after the sets come out. I've thought about Bricklinking for parts to make the main character figs, but since the rumors were pretty strong about official sets, I thought I'd wait (and I'm glad I did). Building figs is an expensive part of MOCing (that's part of why I did my Bag End in Miniland scale, actually), and the new sets will make that easier/cheaper. While having official figs will cut down on the creativity a little, I know I was always looking for the "perfect" torso, face, etc. for each character, and now it will be available.

Here are some of my ideas; the wave will be a close mirror to that of the Pirates of the Caribbean wave this year, featuring both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings film sets:

Wave I

1. US $10.99: Gollum's Cave
Minifigures: Gollum, Bilbo.
Prop(s)/Structure(s): A small buildable rowboat with oars and a creek with a rock to hide in the One Ring (but technically there are two One Rings; they come together in a small packet).

2. US $24.99: The Shire
Minifigures: Frodo, Sam, Nazgūl
Prop(s)/Structure(s): A Hobbit hole with slopes forming the hill side and a chimney sticking out from the right; the main structure features an opening and closing door and a handle able to place on a bucket. Inside is a tiled floor, chimney, table, and a bookshelf. The set also includes a tree hillside mimicking the scene in which the Nazgūl hunches over top of the hobbits hiding underneath the tree. A tree is mounted across the right side and features a catapult to launch rocks at the horse and its Nazgūl rider.

^ These are my ideas on the top of my head at the moment. More may be coming. ^

Man, you just nailed the Gollum's Cave set. Maybe LEGO read the comment and stole your idea...

Alright so I think that a few really cool LotR sets would be:

A Set with a Mumakil: It could have Faramir, an Ithilien Ranger, one of the Mumakil Drivers, a Mumakil and a little hill with Sam and/or Frodo.

Also The Pyre of Denethor would be epic! It could have Denethor, Gandalf the White, Pippin, Faramir, an attendant or two, and then the bed with wood and fire all around it. Maybe even a flaming Denethor but I know that would be hard.

$15 set. I know it wasn't in the movie but I want a Tom Bombadil minifig! This set would have the Old Man Willow.

The problem is there isn't much variety in the Orcs from the movies so it would be hard to make some new Orc designs. I would like some Moria Orcs in armor like in the video game, that would be cool.

I just thought of another one!
Finding the Ring
This would be a $10 set. Would include Smeagol and Deagol's boat, and the river bank. The boat could have a catapult for launching Deagol out of the boat as he catches the giant fish. Minifigs: Deagol, Smeagol. Smeagol would have a happy face and then a face that looks like he is possessed by the power of the Ring. They would each have fishing poles and of course, the Ring.

Minias-Morgul would make a good set like having the witch king and few ors with him marching then have Frodo and Sam cowering in the backround

What piece count are you thinking for this set?

An orc that should have died years before The Hobbit fighting the elves in an invented scene?? Nooo, that would be too much for me. :(
Yeah, but I'm okay with some of the changes to be honest. As long as they're exciting and make some sense, as well as being backed up in the appendixes somewhat, then I'm okay with it. They made a set with Tauriel, and she's a completely new character. Plus I gotta say, Azog's kinda grown on me, even if he is a villain!

The problem is there isn't much variety in the Orcs from the movies so it would be hard to make some new Orc designs. I would like some Moria Orcs in armor like in the video game, that would be cool.

I just thought of another one!
Finding the Ring
This would be a $10 set. Would include Smeagol and Deagol's boat, and the river bank. The boat could have a catapult for launching Deagol out of the boat as he catches the giant fish. Minifigs: Deagol, Smeagol. Smeagol would have a happy face and then a face that looks like he is possessed by the power of the Ring. They would each have fishing poles and of course, the Ring.

Well, the orcs could at least be in different colors like black and dark grey. That little set sounds great!

Just a few ideas:

Erebor: $200

Would include a front gate, with the 2 dwarf statues on either sides, some new burnt black leaves outisde from when Smaug attacked. In the interior there would be some elaborate steps, arches, and TONS of gold and jewels, and also king Thror's throne room, with the Arkenstone above his massive chair.
Minifigs: All the dwarves, as well as Bilbo, as this is the scene where Smaug has left to attack lake-town.


On the Doorstep: $45

Includes a tall cliff, with ropes hanging to the dwarves camp below, and the flat stone that includes the secret door, with a light-up brick. Around the camp it has some foliage, and maybe a small tree. Has a passage going down into the mountain. This set would be compatible with Erebor, rather like Uruk-hai Attack and Helm's Deep. Also includes a thrush!
Minifigures: Thorin, Bilbo Bombur, Bofur, Gloin, Fili and Kili.


*Special Edition!*
Return to Bag-End: $80

About the same as the original Bag-End, but with different furniture, along with some missing, and a sign outside advertising the auction selling Bilbo's possesions.
Minifigs: Bilbo, Lobelia Sackvile-Baggins, along with about 4 random hobbits.


I have some more, but I'm just too lazy to type 'em right now. ;)

Awesome! I love the idea with the compatible Erebor sets. I would definitely buy them. They could also do one with Bilbo and Smaug's head and a lot of gold and jewels which is compatible with those two.

I think Erebor might be more fun if it was built from the days of Thror. There could then be smaller sets of Bilbo with the dragon and the secret entrance.

I was thinking that a set called: The Invasion of Osgiliath. It could be around $50 or $60.
It would come with Farimir in ranger outfit, a Gondorian soldier, a regular orc and that orc that is the head of the assault(Can't remember his name). The set would include: Broken down arch ways and some water pieces. Also some broken down walls and one of the orc boats.

I also think a set called: The siege of Minas Tirith would be awesome. Minifigs would be Gandalf the white with a scratched up face. One Gondorian spearmen,and one Gondorian archer. One cave troll in armor and one regular orc. The set part would be the gate to the city, the orc battering ram and just a ramndom building from the city. I would think the price of this kind of set to be $80 or $90.

I think that they should do a Siege of Gondor/Battle of the Pelennor fields series of sets similar to what they did for the Battle of the Hornburg stuff.

1. A big chunk of wall from Minas Tirith, preferably including some Gondorian soldiers, Gandalf the White, Pippin, Faramir, and an Orc siege tower. It'd probably be about $65

2. The Witch King and his Fell-Beast would comprise most of this set, but it'd also have Eowyn, Theoden, and Merry in his Rohirrim armor. $30

3. A mumakil, which would comprise a large part of the set. A couple Haradrim and maybe an Easterlin would be nice as well. This set would have to come with Legolas, and at least two Rohirrim. $40.

They could include Balin as he walked halfway down the tunnel with Bilbo. Or they could include Thorin as he is the one with the key. I don't see much reason for not including Smaug's lair unless they plan on making him being shot by Bard.

Ultimate Collector's Edition Bag End

The set would be Bag End and it would look more like a hole than the first set (which was like a green house) and it would include Gandalf's Cart as well. Inside would be the entry hallway and it would have coat pegs and a barrel of walking sticks. The Sitting-Room would have a chair for Bilbo to sit in, the fireplace, a second chair and some pictures and maps hanging on the wall. Dining-Room would have a table (large enough for fifteen) and a little pantry off to the side with tons of food. The Kitchen would have a fireplace, small stove, cups, dishes, and another small table. Finally, Bilbo's bedroom would have his bed, his desk, the Red Book and a treasure chest in which he kept his Mithril Shirt and Sting.

Price would be around $250-$300 and the minifigs would be: Bilbo (both Old and young, maybe the Shire form as well), Frodo (at least Shire form, maybe with jacket as well), All Thirteen Dwarves, Gandalf (with both hair and hat), Sam, Merry, and Pippin.

And then maybe as a bonus for pre-ordering you could get an exclusive Really Old Bilbo (like at the end of ROTK).

What do you guys think?

Ofcourse there is potential in Smaug, but IMO he should be in the Laketown set instead.

I think Smaug would be too big to be in any set. He needs his own set, if they want to show him in full size.

Do anyone think there'll be a third wave of LOTR/Hobbit set's? I think there's a high possibility with the new Hobbit movies coming out and all. What are your thoughts?

They will release HOBBIT sets for Desolation of Smaug in December 2013 and for There and Back again in December 2014. And in Summer of each year we will be able to buy new LOTR sets too.

Ultimate Collector's Edition Bag End

The set would be Bag End and it would look more like a hole than the first set (which was like a green house) and it would include Gandalf's Cart as well. Inside would be the entry hallway and it would have coat pegs and a barrel of walking sticks. The Sitting-Room would have a chair for Bilbo to sit in, the fireplace, a second chair and some pictures and maps hanging on the wall. Dining-Room would have a table (large enough for fifteen) and a little pantry off to the side with tons of food. The Kitchen would have a fireplace, small stove, cups, dishes, and another small table. Finally, Bilbo's bedroom would have his bed, his desk, the Red Book and a treasure chest in which he kept his Mithril Shirt and Sting.

Price would be around $250-$300 and the minifigs would be: Bilbo (both Old and young, maybe the Shire form as well), Frodo (at least Shire form, maybe with jacket as well), All Thirteen Dwarves, Gandalf (with both hair and hat), Sam, Merry, and Pippin.

And then maybe as a bonus for pre-ordering you could get an exclusive Really Old Bilbo (like at the end of ROTK).

What do you guys think?

I think it would be a beautiful set. I just love the Shire and the architecture of hobbit-holes. I would definitely buy it (although the price is a bit too high for me :( )

Yeah, the price would have to be high because of the size and the amount of minifigs (20 or so). I was thinking this set would be along the lines of the Star Wars Death Star set. Bag End would be a good Collector's Edition set because it's very important.

Exactly! That's why I was thinking of the Inside Information set. He would be the main part of the set, maybe a few piles of gold here and there but he would be the main part.

An alternative would be to make the set 'Smaug' and he would be like some of the Creator sets that are just a creature. Of course there would be no alternative models.

I like your idea about the Osgiliath set. I think since Lego has not given us any Gondorian soldiers yet, that there should be two of thoughs and one regular orc not two, but that's just my thought.

I think they should do Trollshaws or the Troll's Cave. (From The Hobbit)

Trollshaws:
Setting: Trees and a large fire, some barrels...
Minifigs: Three trolls, (either like what they have in the Mines of Moria or brick-built). Bilbo, Thorin and company (or like five dwarves), and maybe Gandalf).
Functions: Not sure, maybe a part of the fire where you can turn spits, and possibly a function where a part of the fire explodes off.

Troll's Cave:

Setting: A cave... or inside it. Containing Sting, Orcist and Glamdring. Bones, other weapons, barrels, sacks, food.
Minifigs: Bilbo, Thorin, Gandalf, some dwarves.
Functions: A part where some bones or a skeleton pops out at the minifigs.

They should do the set with the black rider! I think that was one of the most famous scenes.

Characters: The black rider, a black horse, and the four hobbits.

Another idea... they should do King Theoden's throne room.

Setting: The throne room, with tables, chairs, a throne, and food. Banners on the wall, etc.

Characters: King Theoden (cursed and uncursed, see function) Grima Wormtoungue (however you spell it), Gandalf the White, Aragorn, Hama and guards, and possible Legolas and Gimli.

Functions: King Theoden's throne has a special function. On one side, there is a throne with the cursed Theoden, on the other side, the "healed" King Theoden, and then you spin the throne around with a rod and then you see the the other throne, with King Theoden uncursed (like how this set, you spin the rock and it "transforms" Barbarossa into skeleton form: http://www.amazon.com/LEGO-Isla-De-Muerta-4181/dp/B004MWJO22/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1373987552&sr=8-1&keywords=lego+isle).
