More LOTR from German Toy Fair

Seems like photos are allowed from the Germany Toy Fair ... and here's the first one to surface from the Lord Of The Rings category.

  • Nobody Cares 3y

    I want to see better pictures of this... :(
    I can't wait ..
  • 0therworld 3y

    Oh amazing! Are there any pictures of the minifigs? (besides the ones from Monster fighters)
  • General Magma 3y

    0therworld Only a picture of the Fellowship, another picture of the re-done Fellowship
    and some of the "bad guys" on another pic, but I bet you've seen those already.
  • 0therworld 3y

    General Magma I *really* don't think I've seen them. Can you paste the link please?
  • General Magma 3y

    0therworld Here you can see most of the figures, including several close-ups:

    (Deeplink the pictures in a Flickr comment and preview them to have
    even closer views of the minifigs.

    Seen any of the 4 LOTR posters in LEGO-style?
    (First was Frodo, the last one (so far?) was Gollum)

    Cannot wait. These sets are going to really put a dent in my pocket, luckily there is time to set aside LotR money! I for one cannot wait for the Gandalf fig, so excited. I'm a bit bothered that Aragorn has a normal sword like Boromir, I mean, he wielded the Anduril, at least make it shiny!
  • ∆TMM∆ 3y

    Now it's just waiting to see close-ups from Theoden, Eomer, Haldir, Rohirrim Soldier and off course the Cave Troll, can't wait!
  • General Magma 3y

    Jordan Taylor What are you basing this off?
    Just wondering, since the pictures I linked to in my previous comment are based on
    'The Fellowship of the Ring', where Aragorn did not have the sword yet.
    The shown Aragorn figure there is from FOTR too, so is his outfit. (At least, I hope that there
    will be a different outfit in Helm's Deep for him)

    ∆TMM∆ Yup. No doubt they're all going to be great, though. That cave troll looks fantastic already from this distance. I was thinking of
    making my own brickbuilt version of the cave troll, but, never mind.. this one will do.
    If his legs are pose-able it would be totally perfect, but I doubt it for some obvious reason.

    I think Theoden, Eomer and the Rohirrim soldier might use the same helmets,
    but I'm still hoping for different ones. It would be great if the soldier was a Royal Guard.
  • ∆TMM∆ 3y

    General Magma
    He is probably basing it off the Books. There, he did have Anduril in the Fellowship. What I don't like about the Cave Troll is the huge gaps in the arms. I don't think they have the same helmets, if they do, bad job Lego, bad bad job...
  • General Magma 3y

    ∆TMM∆ Ah - well, the license is based on the movies so they wouldn't go by the books on that one.

    The gaps in the arms of the cave trolls are quite disappointing, yeah.
    I hope they will change that, though. I can't see why they did it, since the fantasy era trolls
    from 2007/2008 only have a small gap in their arm near the joint, which is mostly hidden
    by the body and hard to notice nonetheless.

    It would be bad if they were to use 3 of the same helmets on every figure,
    but for some reason I can see them doing that.. :\
    But on the other hand, they've released so many new molds, they can't ignore the
    differences on those helmets..



    ^Theoden



    ^Eomer



    ^Royal Guard
  • ∆TMM∆ 3y

    Theoden is probably my favourite character btw. His armour is museum worthy.
  • General Magma 3y

    ∆TMM∆ I think it's safe to say that the Rohirrim soldier
    will be a Royal Guard. Looking at his helmet, he has a fin pointing forward, and his helmet is gold aside from that.
  • Dawn Hero 3y

    Awesome!!!!
  • Aaron Olmsted 3y

    General Magma Great now what to do with my 64 Lego horses that don't have Pose-Ability legs!!!!
  • General Magma 3y

    Aaron Olmsted Uhm, how about you use them along with the new ones..?

    At least, that's what I would do. If I wanted to make a stop motion, then I'd just get all the pose-able horses and use those. If they're used in a MOC (or any other display), I could use
    all 2 variants of the horses nonetheless..
  • Éothain 3y

    Fantastic!
  • Peter Morris 3y

    You guys do realize Anduril was is pieces until Return of the King, right?
  • Jordan Taylor 3y

    I do indeed realize that, I'm hoping for a progression when the sets release and maybe the RotK sets will have Aragorn's shiny. I still don't think he and boromir should have the same sword model. I know it's lego and all but the characters are unique as should be their weapons.
  • General Magma 3y

    Jordan Taylor They don't have enough differences for TLC to make two molds for both
    Boromir and Aragorn.
    Anduril is very likely to happen in its own mold, though.
  • Nick l. 3y

    Since photos are allowed why cant some1 take a more detailed picture of the sets?just saying.....
