the Tower of Orthanc was probably one of the most prominent and recognizable icon in the Lord of the Rings trilogy – apart from the little man with huge, hairy feet, and the grey-turn-white wizard, and the fiery Eye of Sauron, and the one Ring that rules them all, and… anyway, you get the idea. this dark, imposing symbol of Isengard was home to the white wizard Saruman, who turns out to be ‘not so white’ after all. here’s your chance to replay the memorable scenes of Gandalf the Grey wizard-slugging out with the white wizard Saruman that earned the Grey a stay in the tower-top prison before breaking out in absolute style on the Great Eagle with the LEGO Lord Of The Rings: The Tower of Orthanc.
when built, this 2,359-piece dark tower measures an impressive 28″ tall (73 cm) and comes complete with movie-related details including the attic, library, alchemy room, Saruman’s throne room, plus the entrance hall and dungeon. included in the model is the Great Eagle, build-able 9″ tall Ent figure (the giant tree) and five minifigs with weapons: Saruman with kirtle outfit, Grima Wormtongue (gosh! i so hate this freak!), Gandalf the Grey, Uruk-hai and the Orc Pitmaster. available now for $199.99 from LEGO online shop. before you go, you might to check out some lovely images in the gallery below and also hear what the designers responsible for this awesome set have to say about their loving creation in the embedded video further below.
