  1. So what do you guys think? At first I didn't think he was supposed to be, but after taking a close look at both the Lego model and Treebeard I started to have my doubts. Now I am now fairly certain the Ent in Orthanc is in fact Treebeard. He has too many similarities to Treebeard in the film, and too few to hardly any of the other Ents I have found. He has the big nose Treebeard has, the branches coming off one side of his head, the amber/oranigsh colored eyes, and of course the mossy beard. Here are some other Ents for comparison: Ash Ent Beech Ent Birch Ent Linden Ent Oak Ent Rowan Ent Willow Ent Sure some have similarities to the Orthanc Ent. Most have the same color eyes. A few have beards, like the Ash and Willow Ent, though they appear to be different shape and size. None of these Ents seem to have all the characteristics of the Ent found in Orthanc though, except Treebeard. Of course there might be other Ents the Orthanc Ent was based off, but I find it hard to believe he would look so close to Treebeard. So the big question is, why then did Lego not just come out and label the Ent as Treebeard? This seems to be the biggest reason people think the Ent in Orthanc is NOT Treebeard. With Lego though, who knows what their reasoning is? Sometimes they do some pretty strange things that don't really make sense to us. Why was the eagle in Orthanc not labeled Gwahir when it clearly is? I have theorized why not before, mainly because Gwaihir is never specifically named (except whispered) so people might not know the difference (or care). Treebeard on the other hand is named at least a few times though so he would be familiar to even casual fans. Maybe they wanted the Tower of Orthanc to have more multi purchase appeal'? I also find this hard to believe due to the price and extremely low minifigure count for the price. So why then, would Lego NOT just label the Orthanc Ent as Treebeard?
