" 'Over the bridge!' cried Gandalf, recalling his strength. "Fly! This is a foe beyond any of you. I must hold the narrow way. Fly!' Aragorn and Boromir did not heed the command, but still held their ground, side by side, behind Gandalf at the far end of the bridge. The others halted just within the doorway at the hall's end, and turned, unable to leave their leader to face the enemy alone."

This project is a recreation of the scene in the book and film Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, in which the Fellowship is under attack by Orcs on the borders of the Mines of Moria and must take Bridge of Khazad-Dum, a bridge that crosses over a chasm about half a mile deep, to exit them. This project includes the bridge with platforms on either side and falling function, detachable stone stairs also with falling function, three swords, one axe, sting, a staff and a shield. The Minifigures include Gandalf the Grey with extra hair piece, Frodo, Aragorn and Boromir, plus the Balrog figure with a flame sword and flame whip.

This project would be another great addition to the LOTR sets. You could combine this with the 9473 Mines of Moria LEGO set and play out the scenes in the film. The piece count is 525 bricks in total. I expect that this would cost around $65-$70 if it became a set. This scene is also a thing that I have thought would make an excellent LEGO set. The Minifigures would be nothing new, but the Balrog would be great to have. Please support and share this project and tell me of your own. I love seeing new projects, and I will definitely support yours. Goodbye and happy building!

"The bridge cracked. Right at the Balrog's feet it broke, and the stone upon which it stood crashed into the gulf, while the rest remained, poised, quivering like a tongue of rock thrust out into emptiness. With a terrible cry the Balrog fell forward, and its shadow plunged down and vanished. But even as it fell it swung its whip, and the thongs lashed and curled about the wizards knees, dragging him to the brink. He staggered and fell, grasped vainly at the stone, and slid into the abyss. 'Fly you fools!' he cried, and was gone."
