Product Idea

Barad-dur

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

Barad-dûr was held together by dark magic and was the greatest fortress in all of Middle-earth. It was originally built in the Second Age and razed after Sauron's defeat in the War of the Last Alliance. Sauron had Barad-dûr rebuilt during the Third Age as he rose back into power, but the tower was forever destroyed immediately following the destruction of the One Ring, as it was constructed and held together using the Ring's dark magic.

This project includes 5.364 pieces! In comparison, the 10189 Taj Mahal had 5.922 pieces!

Here you can see the size compared to the Lego "The Tower of Orthanc".
I think that's the perfect height for the tower, not too small and not too big.
Please click on the images, to see them in HD. You can find all images on my Flickr album.

  • A  basement with an old skeleton
