The Lord of the Rings: the Pass of Caradhras

"On the third morning Caradhras rose before them, a mighty peak, tipped with snow like silver, but with sheer naked sides, dull red as if stained with blood."

                                                                                   

This project is a recreation of the scene in The Lord of the Rings the Fellowship of the Ring in which the fellowship must take the pass of the mountains. This project includes the snowy mountain pass, a bit of the mountainside with an exploding rock function [which happens once Sauruman attacks], Bill the pony, the path that leads down to The Doors of Durin [the entrance to Moria], two long swords, four short swords including sting, an axe, a bow, a staff and six hoods. The minifigures include Aragorn, Gimli, Frodo, Boromir, Legolas, Sam, Pippin, Merry and Gandalf.

This project could be part of a series of LEGO Lord of the Rings sets that covers all the major events in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. You can also put your LEGO Tower of Orthanc set nearby and play out the scene in the film. I know that the LEGO Lord of the Rings theme is retired, but LEGO could bring it back with a new line of sets that recreate scenes in the film.

 

"A cold wind flowed down behind them, as they turned their backs on the Redhorn gate, and stumbled  wearily down the slope. Caradhras had defeated them."
