If you are going to make your Lord of the Rings Lego collection as complete as possible, then you’re going to want to throw some money at the just announced Tower or Orthanc set from Lego.
Finally, collect one of the most instantly recognizable and iconic buildings of The Lord of the Rings trilogy: The Tower of Orthanc! Build all 6 highly detailed floors filled with fascinating movie-related details including the attic, library, alchemy room, Saruman’s throne room, entrance hall and dungeon. This exclusive model stars in some of the most iconic scenes from The Lord of the Rings movies. Swoop down with the Great Eagle and rescue stranded Gandalf the Grey from his tower-top prison after his defeat at the hands of the white wizard, Saruman. Build the powerful, tree-like Ent, with poseable limbs and cool swinging arm function, then attack the Uruk-hai and Orc Pitmaster while Saruman and his servant Grima Wormtongue take refuge high in the tower. The Tower of Orthanc is a must-have model for any The Lord of the Rings collection! Includes a Great Eagle, buildable Ent figure and 5 minifigures with weapons: Saruman with kirtle outfit, Grima Wormtongue, Gandalf the Grey, an Uruk-hai and the Orc Pitmaster.
It’s a pretty big set coming in at 28-inch tall, includes a Great Eagle, Ent, Suruman, Grima Wormtongue, Gandalf the Grey, an Uruk-hai and the Orc Pitmaster. There are so many rooms in this thing, it’s going to make your head spin, and if that isn’t enough, there are more swords, knives, and wizard staff than you can shake a Hobbit at.
Now for the sobering news – if you want the Tower of Orthanc, you’re going to have to shell out $200.00. Of course if you’ve been buying Lego sets for a while you know that some sets go higher than that.
The Tower of Orthanc arrives in July, exclusively at Lego.com.
