    I’m still waiting for a 2xVIP but if it doesn’t happen anytime soon I’ll get it anyway this summer!

    So would it be Barad Dur instead of Rivendell or in addition to?

    I think you're also overestimating how many people actually feel the CMF bags and cherry pick what they want. Sure, we may all do it but the majority of customers just grab a few bags and hope for the best. They may come back and buy extra when they notice at home that they're still missing some characters they like, earning LEGO perhaps as much money as if they would have bought a (small) set.

    I hear you but there seems to be no reason to include Sauron in a set where he wasn't pictured in the movie. Are there any precedents of characters being included in a LEGO set while they had absolutely nothing to do in the movie scene the set is depicting?

    God your versions (especially the hobbits) look 10x better than what LEGO will put out :o I really like the way you suggest that hobbits have pointy ears and the non receding hairline and correct colours are also a plus!

    Forgive me for my ignorance but why it would be an issue to re-introduce pieces for which moulds already exist? Does LEGO completely get rid of certain moulds if they aren’t used in say a 5 year span? That seems a bit unlikely. And if they do, wouldn’t it be relatively easy to recreate the moulds again as the design and technical specifications already exist? Seems a bit backwards that all those incredible moulds would be forever lost now because they haven’t been used in sets for the past 7 years or so.

    Could somebody post the link to the pics? I can’t seem to find them. Thanks!

    Well they were crazy not to do it last time when it was already a staple for Star Wars, yet they didn't. We cannot know what LEGO thinks will sell well, only hope that they'll see the light :D

    Omg a series of vignettes of one or all the films would be amazing if done well. It also increases the chance of filling in the current gaps we have in terms of minifigure representations of the characters. I do think it’s less likely than having a single large build. My absolute nightmare would be a large helmet or sword. I hope that whatever it turns out to be it will be minifigure scale.

    This would be ideal for me. Say what you want about TROP but the orcs look amazing and I really liked the First Age soldier design as well (not that we would get 1st Age soldiers in LEGO form as they will probably focus on the main characters, but anyway).

    It would be a dream come true... The issue with LOTR is that it has so many huge set location set pieces. If LEGO would release LOTR diorama's of say a piece of a wall of Helms Deep or a gate of Minas Tirith it may not be all that interesting for casual consumers.

    Well, the Amazon series is planned for 5 seasons so maybe LEGO will release sets down the line. I certainly hope so… Just imagine, Numenor & Khazad-dum battlepacks…

    This. in case the Amazon show would suck and the only thing we get out of this are more LEGO LOTR / Middle-Earth sets, it will have been worth it.

    Well I take back what I said before ^^, War of the Rohirrim confirmed for April 2024: https://www.polygon.com/22933827/lord-of-the-rings-anime-first-look-release-date

    Actually, we're not sure if the Rohirrim movie is on anymore, with the LOTR & Hobbit movie and game rights now for sale... Which is a shame if true, I think it would have been a cool project and it could (have been) a boost to potential LEGO sets.
