The Destruction of the Great Lamps

The Silmarillion is Tolkien's writing on the creation and history of Middle Earth leading up to The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

 The Valar are Ainur, servents of Iluvatar (there creator), and creators of Middle Earth through Iluvatar. Melkor was the greatest of all the Valar but fell into pride and became "The Enemy" and corrupted many Maiar to his dark will (for example Sauron and the Balrogs). The Maiar are lesser Ainur.

 

 I hope this helps you that have not read this book, to understand.

Upon arriving in Arda, the valar create the two wondrous lamps, standing taller than all else, Illuin the Blue, and Ormal the Golden. But Morgoth the dark, hoping to keep Arda in darkness, gathers his army of Evil Maiar, and assails the lamps with his great ballista. Only the valar can stop him. Will they be able too?

Remember this is not a final product, if LEGO makes it they will make their own version to suit their standards.

 

Special thanks to commandercody113 for whom I originally started making these "sets". He insisted I post them here and helped to write their descriptions.
