Lord of the Rings Set: Minas Tirith

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

This is my idea for a new LEGO Lord of the Rings set. The siege of Minas Tirith, as seen in "The Return of the King," is an iconic scene from the world of Tolkien that TLG has not yet covered with their products. I believe this is a critical scene that deserves to be made, and as I think I have showcased above, the set can exist at a manageable size, with plenty of figures and play features, while maintaining its signature appearance.

As you can see, a modular design would make Minas Tirith more manageable to build, store, and play with. The different curtains of the city are held in place when assembled by spacer bricks on the ground.

The white city is filled with fun features and detailed interiors. Some rooms include the library, the throne room, the catacombs, and a kitchen cellar.

Of course, a Mordor Orc Army would make an excellent battle-builder set, something like the Uruk Hai Army set from the first wave of Lord of the Rings sets. The rubber-band powered catapult throws the spheres. The trebuchets on the city walls are also fully functional.

Imposing, no? Wouldn't you want to have one of these in your collection? I sure would, and I don't think there are many LEGO Lord of the Rings fans who could say no to a set like this!
