Rejoice fellows of the Lego ring, because we got the first close-up look of the Lego Lord of the Rings sets coming out this year. And they are amazing, from the Mines of Moria—cave troll included!—to Helm's Deep to Shelob!

Yes, that was a Lego LOTR nerd squeaky scream. Look at the Hobbit mini-minifigs fighting Shelob! (that's another one). You can see the Mines of Moria on the back, with the cave troll battling the Fellowship! (yes, yes). That seems to be the second biggest set, the biggest one being Helm's Deep.


The image was secretly taken by a fan from Slovenia in private area of the Lego booth at Nuremberg's Toy Fair. This stolen image comes after Lego gave us the official look of all the Lego Lord of the Rings characters. I can't wait to see them at the New York Toy Fair next week (and show them to you).
