The siege of Minas Tirith, as seen in "The Return of the King," is an iconic scene from The Lord of the Rings theme that LEGO has not yet made into brick form. I believe this is a critical scene that deserves to be made, and as I have shown above, the set can exist as a manageable size, with plenty of figures and play features, while maintaining its signature appearance.
I made this set with the two main parts of Minas Tirith that appear in the Lord of the Rings, The Return of the King. The main gate with the surrounding wall, and the citadel with Denethor's throne room/dining room. To be accurate to the movie I included the Giant pile of wood, that in the movie, is used to burn Faramir. (Note: Pippin saves him, he does not actually get harmed.) This set was created to be the battle of Minas Tirith, so I included orcs, a cavetroll, and of course, Gothmog! The set also includes other key characters, such as Gandalf the white(on Shadowfax), Pippin(Gondor), Denethor, and Faramir. I also included four Gondor soldiers to fight off the intruding orc army. As an extra feature, I included a board to brace the gates, keeping the Army of Mordor out!
