LEGO The Lord of the Rings Rivendell (10316) Set

With an audience score of just 38% on Rotten Tomatoes and the wave of unfavorable reviews, Amazon’s multi-million dollar TV adaptation, The Rings of Power, is a blemish in the LOTR franchise that will never go away. Fortunately, you can relive the glory of the original movie adaptation with the latest LEGO The Lord of the Rings building set, the LEGO The Lord of the Rings Rivendell (10316).

Coming in at a grand 6,167 pieces, the LEGO The Lord of the Rings Rivendell (10316) is a build-and-display set for adult fans of LEGO (AFOLs) that lets you build the iconic Elven stronghold, home to the house of Elrond, from Middle-earth, where the Fellowship was forged and kicking off the trilogy to destroy the One Ring.

It is indeed one of the most iconic places in the entire trilogy. Befitting its grandeur, the set comes with a whopping 15 Minifigures, including all nine members of the Fellowship; Gandalf the Grey, all four hobbits (Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, Merriadoc “Merry” Brandybuck, and Peregrin “Pippin” Took), Legolas, Gimli, Boromir, and Aragorn, as well as Elrond (but, of course), Arwen, Bilbo Baggins, addition elves and a dwarf (Gloin).

Expect to find several new LEGO elements from the world of Middle-earth with the set, including Bilbo’s sword, Sting, the broken shards of Narsil, Aragorn’s ranger sword, Boromir’s sword, as well as numerous dwarven axes and elvish blades.
