I have no illusions about my writing skill. I know that I am not one of the great wordsmiths of our generation – or, quite frankly, any generation – but I do have what I would consider a basic competence in this arena. However, limitations or no, there is absolutely nothing I could write that would even begin to let you know how stoked I am about this.
After months of hints and oodles of blurry might-be-real-might-be-not photos of supposed packaging and designs, the LEGO people have released the official images of the first sets of their Lord Of The Rings mini figures. To say that these are cool is probably the understatement of the century.
These are a total home run in every sense of the word. It’s a toss-up as to what is the single most awesome bit – the scowls on Boromir and Aragorn, the faceless void under the cowl of the ringwraith, or the groovy waistcoats on the hobbits.
And I must have, no matter what, a full-size print of this sweet Gollum “movie poster”. Wow.
