    They haven't missed a beat since they first announced the Star Wars collaboration.

    First the delightful collectible Minifigures
    Then the new cool Superman/Batman/Joker etc sets

    and now

    Lord of the Rings

    Makes room in the LEGO cupboard for some moar!

    Does that mean there will be a game too?

    Every girl I ever kissed I was thinking of a pro footballer.

    I certainly hope so! I've always thought LOTR is such an obvious setting for the Lego games.

    LEGO Lord of the Rings, brilliant!

    "Go here and smash this, go there and smash that. Now hold down 'B', watch you character build something. Now pull the switch, then stand on this circle. Then double-jump up here, and smash this. Then hold down 'B'. etc."

    Awesome!

    I don't give two shits about the LEGO games. It's the LEGO I like. Look at the category. See?

    Awesome. I really like LEGOs own lines. Sorely tempted to get some Alien Conquest kits but:

    Here's what I bought for my son: http://www.amazon.co.uk/LEGO-Star-Wars-7965-Millennium/dp/B004OT8HJO/ref=sr_1_1?s=kids&ie=UTF8&qid=1324044604&sr=1-1

    Can't wait to build it.... in about 6-7 years... he's only 18months

    I used to like the Lego castle / Robin Hood stuff. I had the big castle with the hinges that opened out.

    Years later I rebuilt the front part and submerged it in my fishtank :D

    As a child I planned to buy a load of Lego as soon as I was on a wage. Now I could buy any Lego I wanted and I no longer have that dream. Jealous of those Lego nerds who held on to that dream.

    My wife had to physically restrain me from buying an enormous Lego Millennium Falcon in New York with all of my spending money for the whole weekend.

    You could always buy the Lego you were going to buy yourself for me if you want, Syrette. Might make you feel better about not following your childhood dream if someone else was to do it for you.

    As I'm sure I've mentioned before, my brother-in-law is Lego manager at Hamleys. It's not as awesome as it sounds, but he does get to spend hours building new displays every few months.

    Is that the one that now sells for 8-900 dollars on eBay? Could have been a great investment.

    Sorry, 2000 USDs. Not 8 or 900.

    2000... and up

    In what way is that not as awesome as it sounds! Sounds fucking fantastic to me.

    Because most of the time, he's not building displays, merely keeping stock on shelves and doing managementy type things.

    @Tonka - Yes, probably that one. It was about $500 new, 3 years ago. But it wouldn't be worth $2,000 if I'd bought it because I would have built it, thrown the box away and lost the instructions!

    I love playing these games with my girlfriend's daughter, finding the hardest part being to not keep playing the story mode after she has gone to bed.

    Lego LOTR sets would be well cool. Hopefully they are out before June 2nd so I can get one for my birthday Lego fix.

    I've been xmas Lego hunting for a little while now. Apparently this set (Battle of Endor) was reduced to 50 recently but I missed it.

    Did manage to get the Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar for 7 though :-D - it's the first thing mini-me runs to in the mornings now.

    There are some prequel sets which look awesome. Saw the Republic cruiser built up in a shop display and it makes me want. General Greivous fighter is well cool too.

    I've put those and the Tantive IV on my wishlist but not holding out much hope. I'll probably have to make do with the Lego bought for the kid and some small cheap token set bought by the other half to prevent Xmas has been ruined sulking from me, who still expects Lego on both Christmas and his birthday and plan on that staying the case for the next 37 years at least!

    I've been collecting those small Lego models The Sun keep giving away. I also picked up the Children in Need Pudsey one. :cool:

    Nonono, you would have done it like the pros. Bought two and kept one in a safe environment.
