Lord of the Rings Advent Calendar


Last Updated . Click "Updates" above to see the latest.

Greetings, LEGO fans!

 The LEGO advent calendar has become a time-honored holiday tradition for many a child or child at heart, being released in such themes as City, Castle, and Star Wars.

 This Christmas season, I think it’s time we bring some of that holiday cheer to Middle Earth with an official Lord of the Rings Advent Calendar. Featuring 24 days of microbuilds, minifigs, and more, this set is sure to bring a smile to any Tolkien fan’s face.

 My advent calendar includes microscale models of famous Middle Earth locations such as Helm’s Deep, the Tower of Barad-dûr, and Rivendell. It also comes with two weapons racks and seven minifigures, including two exclusives: Santa Gandalf and Old Bilbo. I know that many LotR fans have been clamoring for an Old Bilbo figure, but since it’s unlikely that LEGO will release a Bilbo’s Birthday set, this calendar may be the only way we’ll be able to get him. An advent calendar would also be a great way to wrap up the Lord of the Rings theme.

 This set contains a total of 262 pieces (including the minifigures), which is about average for an advent calendar, so it fits right in with the other advent calendars on the market.

 With your help, we can turn this project from a dream into a reality. Please support the Lord of the Rings Advent Calendar today!
