LEGO Lord of the Rings
LEGO Lord of the Rings Screenshots Rule Them All

Some new LEGO Lord of the Rings screenshots have hit the web today, winging their way from Comic-Con with LEGO Legolas (hur-hur), Aragorn, Gimli, Gandalf and them little hobbit fellas doing their running through the rolling hills of Middle-earth schtick.

Lord of the Rings is the latest franchise to get the plastic treatment, with LEGO Lord of the Rings set to recreate some of the movie trilogy's most iconic sequences with the endearing charms of the eponymous plastic blocks.

There's a glimpse at the infamous Cave Troll fight in the Mines of Moria and a few shots of the heroes posing. You'll find seven shots in total in the gallery. LEGO Lord of the Rings is out in autumn 2012.

It actually worries me how excited I am for this game. There is no way it won't be fun.

With the success of Lego Batman 2, I'm positive LotR is going to be even better. I'm saving money to buy it.

Love that the series for Lego is coming!

I predict Lego: Twilight is next

Lego: X-Men
Lego: Sports (this would be a good one)

I'm still amazed we haven't seen Lego spider-man.... There was so many actual Lego packs when each of the movies came out, so it would only be logical to bring that out. I would get it for sure.

I was just watching the "Making Of"s for the Lord of the Rings films.

I am astounded at how much effort went into the detail of the film, things I didn't even think about. The forced perspective, the set creation, how Gollum came to be via Andy Serkis' performance and the power of technology.

I am excited for this.

Lego twilight? Really? Best hand your man card in at the desk on the way out dude, you don't need it any longer.

Don't think Lego Xmen could happen either, due to the rights to the various characters being held by so many different companies. But saying that, they have produced actual xmen Lego sets recently, so there may be a tiny chance that could happen.

@17. He was found not guilty, the fact that Ferdinand has disgraced this mans name is terrible, and knowone is giving him a hard time for making shit up. I am certain the media will still be all about Terry and if he was actually guilty and not on Ferdinand's lies. Oh and i should mention i am Black myself so i am not biased.

@15 He never said that he wanted twilight lego he just said that is what he thinks they will make next. Maybe you should learn to read before you comment.

I would love to see Lego Back to the Future and Lego Avengers.

@11, I think Megablocks owns the rights to Halo (Which sucks, because Megablocks don't freaking stay together!)

@4 Epic Fail, also I think Lego just released an X-Men set with Wolverine, and others with a truck in it. So it might be possible if they have the rights to them already.

@1 I have to agree with you 100%. It's probably not normal for me to be as excited as I am for this game. A grown man mind you lol!

I've been a fan of the Lego games since Lego Star Wars and ever since they released it I've just been waiting for them to make Lego LOTR and now it's finally a reality. Can't wait.

On the other hand, my next favorite movie trilogy I want made into a Lego game is "Lego Back to the Future"!!! Make it happen Traveler's Tales!!

With Lego Batman 2, it's about time they stepped up to create something fresh. Even you die-hards must admit the past games were becoming stale.

But wouldn't Lego: Twilight be good because they are legos? And the fact that they would make fun of everything?

Anyway can't wait for Lego: LOTR, gonna be the best Lego game ever I'm betting.

Agreed, a Lego Back to the Future would totally kick ass! I've only played the Batman and Harry Potter 1 incarnations, and have thoroughly enjoyed each one. Want to play them all.

@19 - He was found not guilty despite the judge agreeing that he did indeed use the offending phrase. It was too "he said, she said" to get the truth out, so he got let off.

I can't wait for this game. PAtheEagle wasn't sure how he felt about a Lego game with dialogue, but I have to say, I think with this game it will be cool because The Lord of the Rings had some awesome dialogue... like Boromir's comment: They have a cave troll. LOL I love the look on Sean Bean's face when he says that!

Shut up and take my money!

@11. As do I, as do I.

@22 (@11) They do indeed own the rights to Halo Wars which I assume includes the rest of the Halo franchise. If only Lego had've got their act together and bought them earlier.

I'm going to pick up LEGO Batman 2 as soon as I have the money and if I like that, I'll pick up LEGO LotR also. I hope they'll be making a LEGO Spider-Man game actually. As a kid, when I played with Spider-Man Lego, I loves attaching the web to just about every brick there was. I built a small city to swing around in and - oh Lord - it would be so much fun to swing through the streets in LEGO Spider-Man :')

Lego james bond would be a laugh and a half.

I can iamagine the dialogue for this would be excellent plus they could have a whole range of james bond games, there's over twenty films to choose from!

think it would have to be rated 15 though.
pussy galore anyone?

Saw the game at San Diego Comic Con, but I didn't get to see a cutscene, so I don't know if the voices are just the film soundtrack or not, like the trailer's were...
