When will the LEGO Icons The Lord of the Rings Barad-Dûr be released?

According to Clay_Bricks, the official release date for the LEGO Icons The Lord of the Rings Barad-Dûr is set for June 1, 2024. The kit will be priced at $459.99 upon its launch, which is $40 cheaper than the 6167-piece Rivendell-based model.

This upcoming set, created for individuals 18 and older who are passionate about The Lord of the Rings, contains 5471 pieces that can be easily assembled together to create an authentic LEGO model of Sauron’s stronghold in Mordor.

The LEGO-reimagined Eye of Sauron is an impressive addition, featuring a LEGO Light brick that enables you to replicate the fiery rim of the ever-watchful eye of Middle Earth’s most fearsome enemies. Along with its vibrant orange pieces, this creation truly captures the essence of the Eye of Sauron.

The collection will consist of an excellent variety of minifigures and accessories, such as Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, Sauron, Gollum, a pair of Brown Orcs, and two Green Orcs. Additionally, a Nazgul is included.
