At a whopping 6,167 pieces, LEGO Lord of the Rings Rivendell is an absolute beast. It doesn’t hold any awards for being the largest or most expensive set. But by jove, it might be one of the most beautiful sets we’ve ever seen. The details in it are incredible. And even though we aren’t Lord of the Rings fans, we are huge fans of this set.
Revealed thi week, LEGO Lord of the Rings 10316 Rinvedell will be coming to stores on 8th March. LEGO VIP members will be able to pick it up early from 5th March. It’s going to leave a noticable dent in your wallet, though: it’s retailing for £429.99/$499.99. But dare we say it might actually be worth it?
The Rivendell set has some of the nicest detail we’ve seen in a LEGO set, from individual tiles on the rool, decorative pieces used to add building detail, intricate towers and beautiful, individually-leafed trees. For Lord of the Rings fans, there’s plenty of famliar locations, too:
- The Council Ring, which features a semi-circle of chairs for the council to sit at
- Frodo’s Bedroom, with chest and desk
- Elrond’s Study, decorated with paintings showcasing the history of Middle-earth
- An Elven Tower, where you’ll find five Elven statues of famous warriors
- Gazebo, River and Bridge, so you can recreate the scene where the Fellowship leaves Rivendell
There’s also 15 minifigures in the set. They include Gandalf the Grey, Frodo, Samwise, Merry, Pippin, Legolas, Gimli, Boromir, Aragon, Elrond, Arwhen, Bilbo Baggins and Gloin.
Frankly, our words can’t do justice to this beautiful set, and so we’ll leave you with a host of images so you can admire it and lust after it. More information is available on its LEGO.com listing.
