5,471-Piece ‘Lord of the Rings’ Dark Tower LEGO Set Brings Mordor Into Your Home

J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings series is set in the expansive world of Middle-earth, where fantastical creatures such as elves, ogres, and dragons roam free, and heroes come in all shapes and sizes. Naturally, a high fantasy story with such all-encompassing world-building deserves an equally comprehensive LEGO set to do it justice, and the beloved toy company recently released a brand new set doing just that. The set features the location of Barad-dûr, or the Dark Tower, which is Sauron’s fortress in Mordor. The set, which comes with a whopping 5,471 pieces, measures 83 centimeters (or about 2.7 feet) tall. The tower is topped with the famous Eye of Sauron, which is illuminated by a light brick, providing it with a blazing effect. The set also comes with ten detailed character mini-figures, including Sauron himself, as well as protagonists Frodo and Sam.

The inside of the tower features several elaborate rooms, including a dining hall, dungeon, and forge, all visible by peering into the back of the looming LEGO brick building. On the front of the tower, the main gates can be opened and shut using a tiny button, and the all-seeing Eye of Sauron can be turned in any direction. This attention to detail and interactive features make the set not only a visual spectacle but also a hands-on experience for fans and builders. Whether recreating iconic scenes from the series or imagining new adventures in Mordor, this LEGO set brings the dark allure and epic scale of Tolkien’s world into the homes of enthusiasts and collectors alike.
