A decade on from its last The Lord of the Rings collaboration, LEGO has partnered with Peter Jackson’s beloved fantasy film franchise based on the modern mythology crafted by J.R.R. Tolkien to release a scaled-down recreation of Rivendell.

Previously, the brand had produced a portion of Rivendell with its Council of Elrond kit. But now, Tolkienverse fans have the opportunity to get their hands on this 6,167-piece masterpiece, complete with insanely authentic detailing and 15 character minifigures: Gandalf the Grey, all four hobbits – Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, Merriadoc “Merry” Brandybuck, Peregrin “Pippin” Took – Legolas, Gimli, Boromir, Aragorn, as well as Elrond, Arwen, Bilbo Baggins plus additional elves and a dwarf named Gloin.

Props, such as Bilbo’s sword Sting, Aragorn and Boromir’s swords, and dwarven axes included.

The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell set can be broken down into three main sections…

LEGO The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell

Section One

  • The Council Ring: “Complete with a semi-circular ring of chairs for the council and the plinth where the ring is first revealed and the Fellowship discuss how to destroy it.”
  • Frodo’s Bedroom: “With a desk and chest where the young hobbit recovers following his rescue by Arwen from the hands of the Nazgûl, before being reunited with Bilbo.”
  • Elrond’s Study: “With famous paintings from the history of Middle-Earth.”

“We know many of our fans have been anticipating a set like this for a long-time – but a great LEGO The Lord of the Rings set is never late, it arrives precisely when it means to,” notes LEGO Design Master Mike Psaiki via press statement.

“It was important to us that we created something really special in this recreation of Rivendell. We aimed to add as much detail as possible and create an engaging experience throughout the build to delight fans recreating scenes or proudly displaying Elrond’s home.”

“We are really pleased with the final design and how we have brought Rivendell to life in brick form.”
