The Lord of the Rings is a licensed theme, that was released in May 2012, based on the movies by Peter Jackson, which are based on the books of the same name by J.R.R. Tolkien.
The theme's first wave was released in May and consists of seven sets, based on the trilogy of films, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. Between the first and the second wave of sets, LEGO The Lord of the Rings: The Video Game will be released in November 2012.
More sets of the Lord of the Rings trilogy will come in 2013 Description The Lord of the Rings currently consists of one main theme, simply branded The Lord of the Rings, although it has three unofficial subthemes, each based on the film after which it is named.
Currently, four of the seven sets (9469 Gandalf Arrives, 9472 Attack on Weathertop, 9473 The Mines of Moria, and 9474 The Battle of Helm's Deep) focus on the heroes of the theme. The other three are 9476 The Orc Forge, which focuses exclusively on the orcs, 9471 Uruk-hai Army, in which heroes and villains are approximately evenly matched, and 9470 Shelob Attacks, in which the evil spider Shelob is the primary focus. Almost all of the sets are location-based, with Gandalf Arrives being the only exception.
Most of the sets feature a base color of light grey, with dark grey added as an accent in the more naturalistic areas (Weathertop, The Mines of Moria and Shelob Attacks), and sand green being added to the architecture Rohan. Gandalf Arrives is made up of tan and olive green parts for the cart, with a dark grey saddle, and brown wheels and a horse. The Orc Forge is mostly reddish-brown, with a base made of tan plates, and grey bricks of both shades.
A large amount of minifigures are introduced in the theme, almost all of which are coloured in naturalistic shades. Gollum is almost entirely tan, Legolas is sand blue, olive green, and reddish brown, all the hobbits wear simple colors, and the orcs are all printed in various shades of brown and green.
