Behold the Legos of the Rings
From toplessrobot, The French site Lord of the Brick managed to find incredibly fuzzy, grainy, CONFIDENTIAL-stamped scans of the packages for Lego's upcoming Lord of the Rings sets, and... damn. I don't think there's anything mind-blowingly surprising in here -- they look pretty much exactly as I expected them to look -- but still, just seeing them is pretty nerdgasm inducing. That's the Mines of Moria set up above (which comes with Pippin, Gimli, Legolas, Boromir, 2 x Goblins, 2 x Skeletons & Cave Troll), and the Helm's Deep set below (Aragon, Gimli, Legolas, Theoden, 5 x Uruk-hai).
The other sets include...
• Gandalf Arrives - Gandalf & Frodo
• Shelob Attacks - Samwise, Frodo & Gollum
• Uruk-hai Army - 4 x Uruk-hai, 1 x Rohirrim Soldier, 1 x Rider Of Rohan
• Attack On Weathertop - Merry, Frodo, Aragon & 2 x Nazgul
...and you can see equally crappy pics of those sets' packaging at Lord of the Brick
