If you love The Lord of the Rings universe, then this Rivendell LEGO set will have you saying, “my precious.” The upcoming The Lord of the Rings LEGO collectible translates one of Middle-earth’s most beautiful locations to perfection. Not only is it absolutely gorgeous, though, but the LEGO form of this elven stronghold brings a lot of narrative to the table. From its many Minifigures featuring all your favorite Lord of the Rings characters to all the nooks, crevices, and Easter eggs you’ll get to build in, this Rivendell set is not one to miss.
Part of the LEGO Icons collection, this The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell set takes inspiration from the franchise’s cinematic outings. (Although we’d love some The Rings of Power location sets sooner rather than later.) And just like the movies, attention to detail is key. From the gorgeous golden trees of Rivendell to the broken shards of Narsil, the LEGO set has considered Elrond’s home from every angle. We feel almost overwhelmed by its possibilities.
A release shares more about the three sections included in the Rivendell LEGO build:
Section one, featuring:
The Council Ring – complete with a semicircular ring of chairs for the council and the plinth where the ring is first revealed and the Fellowship discuss how to destroy it
Frodo’s Bedroom – with a desk and chest where the young hobbit recovers following his rescue by Arwen from the hands of the Nazgûl, before being reunited with Bilbo
Elrond’s study – with famous paintings from the history of Middle-earth
Section two, featuring:
An elven tower – featuring five Elven statues of unnamed famous warriors from the past
Second three, featuring:
Gazebo, river and bridge – to recreate the scene where the Fellowship departs Rivendell.
And with fifteen Minifigures, you’ll also be able to populate your world and successfully create your Fellowship. These figures include the core fellowship. So we get Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, Merriadoc “Merry” Brandybuck, Peregrin “Pippin” Took, Legolas, Gimli, Boromir, and Aragorn. In addition, Elrond, Arwen, and Bilbo Baggins help complete the LEGO Rivendell build. Sounds like everyone we could possibly ask for to bring our The Lord of the Rings dreams to life.
However, this Rivendell LEGO set might require you to be an Elven lord if you’d like to purchase it. The 6,167-piece collector’s item will cost The Lord of the Rings fans $499.99. It’s hefty but the set is incredibly lovely. Truly LEGO Elrond will live very happily there. The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell LEGO set goes on sale on March 8.
