Today we very quickly go around the contents of the LEGO ICONS set 40693 The Lord of the Rings: Fell Beast, a small box of 269 pieces which will be offered from June 1 to 7, 2024 on the official online store as well as in the LEGO Stores for the purchase of the LEGO ICONS set 10333 The Lord of the Rings: Barad-Dûr.

I already wrote it in my review of the set 10333 The Lord of the Rings: Barad-Dûr, this small promotional product would, in my opinion, have fully deserved to be integrated into the box of the large set allowing the assembly of the Dark Tower, the creature could have added a little volume by, for example, being installed in a flying position on the sides of the tower via a transparent pole. This is not the case, and LEGO has chosen to make it a promotional product which, however, is not unworthy by offering a little construction and making it possible to obtain a rather successful creature.

We could regret that the head of the creature is not more detailed, even with the help of a possible sticker, but the whole thing is visually very coherent. The two wings are made of soft plastic flanked by a superb pattern and dotted with a few holes, it's very nicely executed. The creature also benefits from a certain mobility with the possibility of orienting its head, wings, tail and legs to vary the settings. No stickers in this box.

LEGO does provide a small additional wall on which we can display the thing but the manufacturer forgets to offer us a transparent support which would allow the construction to be placed in a flight position, a scenario which is nevertheless visually evoked on the back of the product box. I cobbled together a solution for the photos shown here, adding three pieces of the same type to the box would not have cost LEGO much and the result would have been even more interesting.

The Nazgûl figurine delivered in this box benefits from a new torso, everything else, the black head, the hood, the neutral legs and the cape already seen in the past in Ninjago, Harry Potter sets or even on the back of Batzarro, being rather generic. We could have hoped for a figurine of the Witch-King of Angmar for the occasion, too bad.

This little promotional product therefore seems sufficiently worked out to trigger my immediate purchase of the LEGO ICONS set. 10333 The Lord of the Rings: Barad-Dûr, what it contains really seems to me to be a very appropriate complement to Barad-Dûr. Mission accomplished for LEGO, I will go to the checkout without regret, just so as not to regret having passed up this offer and having to turn later to the secondary market to add this little box marked with the words ICONS and The Lord of the Rings to my collection.
