About this deal

This set makes a magical treat, birthday present or holiday gift for The Lord of the Rings fans, LEGO builders and LEGO BrickHeadz collectors.

While I appreciate the effort to diversify the offerings of each set, I would probably put Sam, Frodo, And Bill (excellent pony by the way) together, then Merry, Pippin, and Boromir, and then either pairs of Aragorn with Gandalf and Gimli with Legolas, or just those four all together. Yes, I use as reference the original torso design, redraw and adjust to match the scale for bricks 1x3 and tiles 2x4.Obviously here they are taken from the equivalent existing torsos but you'd still need to make decals to get them looking good.

His hair has dimension, his cloak has dimension, and even his crown stands out proudly from his head. Here’s a look at the back and sides – it’s really interesting that the designers opted for studs for his hair instead of heavy layering of slopes for the design.

These buildable display models make a great gift for The Lord of the Rings fans, LEGO builders and LEGO BrickHeadz collectors.

Frodo is acceptable, Gollum is much too simplified to be credible, but the box is pretty and that's the main thing for many collectors. From its angular face and horns to the various flames licking across its body, it is a really menacing character to look at. Thankfully, you can easily fix this by replacing it with the old Sting sword element, which looks MUCH better, and more proportionate. Your continued support helps me run the blog, and continue to produce more awesome, educational and useful LEGO content! The Balrog’s horns give it a sense of heft and size, and the wingspan gives it a fearsome larger-than-life shape.If Frodo and Gandalf BrickHeadz are coming next year in January I wonder if the LEGO design team used on their versions any of these parts in these new colors.
