LEGO shares teaser for Lord of the Rings Barad-dûr

The LEGO Group has shared a teaser for what appears to be an upcoming LEGO The Lord of the Rings set, with a sneak peek at a brick-built Barad-dûr.

A short clip shared to the LEGO Group’s social media channels has offered our very first official look at a LEGO The Lord of the Rings Barad-dûr. Captioned “The brick has awoken, it has heard its master’s call,” the clip shows a simple black brick that, when touched, cuts to a brick-built version of the top of Barad-dûr, flaming eye and all. Accompanied with dramatic music, the clip then shows the words ‘You can’t hide your passion,’ riffing on the iconic The Lord of the Rings quote from Sauron himself.

Presumably, this is teasing an upcoming LEGO The Lord of the Rings set, set to join 10316 The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell in the LEGO Icons theme. While we can only see the very top of the tower that acts as Sauron’s Dark Fortress, presumably the set will include the whole thing.

From what we can see so far, it appears as though transparent orange bricks will be used to replicate the burning eye on the top of the tower, used by Sauron to see across Middle-Earth – although we’d imagine the animated flames surrounding it won’t be included in the LEGO set.

Nothing else is yet known for sure about LEGO Barad-dûr, so we’ll have to wait for more information from the LEGO Group about more details of the build, potential minifigures, and so on. With a teaser coming from the LEGO Group now, fingers crossed a reveal won’t be too far off.

I write about all the very best fandoms – and that means LEGO, of course. Spending so much time looking at and talking about LEGO sets is dangerous for my bank balance, but the LEGO shelves are thriving. You win some, you lose some.
