How about a UCS Shire?
Well, I've started making a new list, but I'm having so many ideas for large sets that I can't put them all in one wave, so I might just start making ideas for a bunch of really big (not too big) sets. I'm almost done my next list, and I'm excited to see what people think.
Sorry about the double-post, but here is my second list of ideas for a third wave:
Minifigs: Frodo with reversible sick/wounded face, Sam, Merry, Pippin, Aragorn, Gandalf the Grey, Elrond, Arwen, Bilbo with reversible head so he can have his little Gollum moment, Legolas, Gimli, Boromir, maybe two Nazgul on horses.
Components: The Last Homely House, with a bedroom where Frodo can rest, Elrond’s study where he and Gandalf talk about the fate of Middle-Earth, and the room with the statue holding the shards of Narsil. Also, there could be the place where the council is held, and the blacksmiths where Narsil is reforged. And two Nazgul horses, one rearing and one not.
The Flooding of Isengard:
Minifigs: Saruman, Grima, Merry, Pippin, four orcs, two Uruk-hai.
Components: Tower of Orthanc, a small wooden tower where the orcs work, a big molded/brickbuilt Treebeard.
Attack at Osgiliath:
Minifigs: Faramir, Madril, two rangers, four orcs, one Mordor Uruk-hai.
Components: The shore with some ruins where the orc boats come up to the city, an orc boat.
The Bridge of Khazad-Dum:
Minifigs: Gandalf the Grey, Frodo, Boromir, Gimli, two goblins with bows.
Components: The bridge with a collapsing function, a big molded/brickbuilt Balrog.
The Paths of the Dead:
Minifigs: Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, King of the Dead, two Dead soldiers (I’m kinda unsure how this could be possible, maybe just sand green figs with white printing)
Components: The door into the Paths, some sort of cave section, I don’t know, this one is tricky.
The Mirror of Galadriel:
Minifigs: Frodo, Sam, Galadriel.
Components: The Mirror, the fountain in which the water is held, a tree with golden leaves.
Ranger/Haradrim Battle Pack:
Minifigs: two Ranger, one with hood, one without, a Haradrim, an Easterling.
Components: A tree where the rangers can hide, and a rock where the baddies can hide behind.
Elven/Uruk-Hai Battle Pack:
Minifigs: two Elven warriors from Helm’s Deep, an Uruk-hai swordman, a Uruk-hai berserker.
Components: a smaller version of the Uruk-hai ballista.
