Lego 'Lord of the Rings' Rivendell Set With 6,167-Pieces Is Insanely Detailed

You can assemble your very own Council of Elrond in Lego Middle-earth for $500.

Lego's delivered Lord of the Rings sets for over a decade, but the company took its time delivering a truly grand plastic-brick re-creation of Rivendell, a pivotal setting in J.R.R. Tolkien's work and in the movie adaptations. The stronghold of the elves is a magical place, a sensation Lego managed to encapsulate in 6,167 pieces of plastic stretching 29.5 inches (75 centimeters) wide.

"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!" said Lego design master Mike Psaiki in a statement Tuesday.  

The colorful set is based on the design from the Peter Jackson movies. Lego's vision of Rivendell includes Frodo's bedroom, Elrond's study and the Council Ring where you can assemble the Fellowship. The rest of the set features an elven tower and a gazebo, river and bridge. The details are dialed in, from the fantastical tall trees to the multicolored roof. 

The set comes with a large cast of 15 minifigure characters, including Gandalf, Frodo, Samwise, Merry, Pippin, Legolas, Gimli and, of course, Elrond. The details extend to props for the minifigs, so you can go to battle with Bilbo Baggins' sword Sting and a selection of other swords and axes. 

The set goes on sale in March for $500 (£430, AU$800). It's recommended for Lego fans 18 and up. With so many pieces, it might take you as long to put Rivendell together as it took Jackson to make the movies.
