LEGO today officially unveils the ICONS set 10316 The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell, a box stamped ICONS which will be available at the retail price of €499.99 in a VIP preview from March 5, 2023 before global availability scheduled for March 8.

In the box, 6167 pieces to assemble Imladris (or Rivendell or Rivendell or Fendeval) and 15 minifigs: Gandalf le Gris, Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, Merriadoc “Merry” brandybuck, Peregrine“Pippin” Tooke, Legolas, Gimli, Gloin, Boromir, Aragorn, Elrond, Peredhel, Arwen, Bilbo Baggins and some generic elves.

As you can see from the visuals, the 72cm long and 39cm high construction is divided into three sections: the tower, the Council table and the Gazebo with the Bruinen river and the bridge. The construction is obviously more ambitious than that of the set 79006 Council of Elrond marketed in 2014.

Members of the VIP program who acquire this big box when it launches will also receive a copy of the LEGO BrickHeadz The Lord of the Rings set. 40630 Frodo & Gollum (184 pieces - 14.99 €) which I spoke to you about recently to thank them for their selflessness. The offer will be valid until March 7, 2023.

We will quickly talk in more detail about the contents of this big box.

10316 lego icons rivendell teaser

Let's pretend we haven't seen anything so far and enjoy the short teaser sequence that LEGO is offering us today around a box which should therefore be officially unveiled very quickly.

We distinguish very well the subject treated in this box via the reflection in the ring, it is about Rivendell, and we know that it is about a product including minifigs of which at least a hobbit. For the rest, we will have to wait for the official announcement of the product concerned.

We end the tour of the three packs of LEGO BrickHeadz minifigures under license The Lord of the Rings with a quick overview of the contents of the set 40632 Aragorn and Arwen, a small box whose inventory of 261 pieces allows you to assemble Aragorn and Arwen, all in exchange for 19.99 € since January 1, 2023.

The two characters are here in wedding attire and considering the usual limitations of the BrickHeadz format, I think the designer is doing well. We recognize the two outfits seen on screen in the film The king's return, and even if Arwen's dress is a bit sad in the LEGO version, the most significant attributes of each character's outfits are there.

Three pretty pad-printed pieces are delivered to embody the headdresses of the two bride and groom and Aragorn's armor, they are all very well executed and contribute greatly to giving these figurines a little character. We regret despite everything that the golden zone on Aragorn's breastplate is a little pale, it is in any case much less contrasted than on the official visuals.

I also salute the work of the graphic designers on this product, the elements in question are very well stylized and fit perfectly on these two figurines. For the rest, it's pretty convincing except maybe for Aragorn's beard which gives the impression that the character is wrinkling a toothless mouth.

As often, these figures are assembled in a few minutes and they simply repeat the usual techniques, but LEGO delivers the two characters with separate bags and instruction booklets which makes it possible to share the experience.

The return of The Lord of the Rings license to LEGO is good news for fans, even if the latter did not necessarily expect this reboot to be done via a few figures in BrickHeadz format divided into three packs of two characters of uneven quality. We will have to do with it while waiting for better.

The simple presence of the license logo on these three boxes will however be enough to make them products in high demand, even among those who usually ignore these cubic figurines. As far as I'm concerned, the fact of being able to immerse myself in the world of the license via these few constructions will also have been enough to make me happy, that's already it. As the saying goes, "for lack of thrushes, we eat blackbirds".

Note: The set presented here, provided by LEGO, is as usual involved. Deadline fixed at 14th January 2023 next at 23:59 p.m. Just post a comment under the article to participate. Your participation is taken into account regardless of your opinion.
