    Warner Bros. Consumer Products and The LEGO Group Build on Partnership to Produce Construction Toys for THE LORD OF THE RINGS™ Trilogy and the Two Films Based on THE HOBBIT
    December 16, 2011

    Building Sets Based on Epic Film Trilogy and Forthcoming Theatrical Release Slated for 2012

    Warner Bros. Consumer Products and The LEGO Group announced today a partnership that awards the world’s leading construction toy brand exclusive rights to develop build-and-play construction sets based on THE LORD OF THE RINGS™ trilogy and the two films based on THE HOBBIT™. The multi-year licensing agreement grants access to the library of characters, settings, and stories for THE LORD OF THE RINGS property, as well as films The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There and Back Again.

    LEGO® THE LORD OF THE RINGS construction sets are slated for a rolling global launch beginning in June 2012 in the United States, with LEGO THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY scheduled for later in the year.

    “Only LEGO, with their expertise in the construction category, is capable of doing justice to the incredibly imaginative environments depicted in the world of THE LORD OF THE RINGS and the two films based on THE HOBBIT,” said Karen McTier, executive vice president, domestic licensing and worldwide marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “These films give life to amazing worlds and characters and we are thrilled to bring fans these products that deliver an imaginative play experience befitting of these beloved properties.”

    The LEGO THE LORD OF THE RINGS collection will translate into LEGO form the epic locations, scenes and characters of Middle-earth as depicted in all three films, including The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

    In late 2012, LEGO THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY will give fans of all ages a chance to build and play out the fantastical story and new characters of the legendary Middle-earth adventures depicted in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey from Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson, slated to premiere December 14, 2012.

    “Our collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products has delivered numerous worldwide successes in the construction toy aisle with lines like LEGO HARRY POTTER and LEGO BATMAN, introducing us to loyal audiences who love great stories, strong characters and the toys that they inspire,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president, licensing and entertainment for The LEGO Group. “It’s particularly exciting to now be able to create sets based on the fantasy worlds and characters from THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy and the two films based on THE HOBBIT, not only because we know they will foster collectability and creative play, but also because these are two properties that our fans have been asking us to create for years.”

    Information about the sets and collectible minifigures from both collections will be unveiled at a later date at TheLordoftheRings.LEGO.com.

    Here's a partial list of sets.

    9469 Gandalf Arrives: Gandalf's cart from the start of Fellowship. Comes with a cart full of stuff, Gandalf and Frodo.
    9470 Shelob Attacks: Basically Shelob, Sam, Frodo and Gollum. Gollum isn't a normally mini-figure, looks more like Sebulba like figure.
    9471 Uruk-hai Army: It's a section of wall (hopefully connects to Helms Deep) with a couple of defender and bunch of Uruk-hai. Think super SW battle pack.
    9472 Attack On Weathertop: A bit of an unextraordinarily set, a couple of hobbits, a couple of ringwraiths and a small Weathertop looking thing. There's a new horse piece.
    9473 Mines Of Moria: It's really the Tomb of Balin. Some Fellowship members, orcs and troll.
    9474 The Battle Of Helms Deep: For now the big set. It's short version of the Hornburg, a little causeway and a short piece of the Deeping Wall. The Hornburg is likely a dollhouse style building. 9 mini-figures, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Théoden, 4 Uruk-hai and one I'm not sure of. New horse here as well.
    "I'm sick and tried of these motherfrakkking Sith on this motherfrakkker plane!"
