LEGO's 2,359-Piece LOTR Tower Of Orthanc Playset

LEGO has just announced the July release of a 2,359-piece Tower of Orthanc playset. The Tower of Orthanc is not to be confused with Barad-dûr, which is the tower with the Eye of Sauron peeking around on top. So yeah, that's why there's no eye. I'm sure you already knew that though because you're a smart cookie. Plus probably own at least one Lord of the Rings sword replica. I have a high elf warrior sword! Or at least I did before my mom took it away from me after I fell on it playing orc defender way past my bedtime.

Hit the jump for a worthwhile video of the playset's three designers (all with mesmerizing voices) discussing its features (it has a full open back with different rooms and all that).

Thanks to devon and Lazlow3, who agrees its high time LEGO produce some quality dino themed playsets. Yeah! I'm thinking something with a baking soda and vinegar volcano.

    Yes yes good good...

    "mission, quest, thing" is also from the the movie, these guys are hard core.

    Many thanks for correctly calling it Ornthanc instead of the generic "Isengard." Yes, Ornthanc is -in- Isengard but the number of people who conflate the two really gets to me.

    You will never know the touch of a woman.

  • tedsmitts

    Well I certainly hope not!

    Oh, you mean there are no women geeks? So very sexist of you.

    Wow. I didn't expect Bill Gates' twin to sound like Andre the Giant...
