The Company of Thorin Oakenshield… built in Lego – TheOneRing.net

Original article

November 12, 2014 at 7:07 am by Demosthenes[1]  - 

gandalfbilbo1 I stumbled on this a little while back… and thought it quite cool… and then forgot about it. So before I forget again, check out this Lego “My Own Creation” of the entire Company of Thorin Oakenshield.

It’s the work of Pate-keetongu, a Finnish LEGO enthusiast who builds mostly Bionicle, castle and steampunks MOCs.

It took 656 days counting from Balin Bust posted before the premiere of An Unexpected Journey, or 580 days if counting from the posting date of Balin & Dwalin. That is around 10% of my current life, and that sound quite lot if you ask me! Naturally all the positive feedback I got during the project on Flickr, Eurobricks and Palikkatakomo plus from friends from Bio-Klaani and surrondings gave me heaps of inspiration. This wasn’t a project at the beginning.

I just threw together Balin and Dwalin and Oin and Bifur and Thorin and there I went… And then somebody asked if I’ll build Gandalf and Bilbo and I said that yes, why not? And I’m glad I did, as they are iconic characters and turned out decent.

You can check out many more close-up photos over on Pate-keetongu’s blog.

Bilbo’s Last Song

Bilbo’s Last Song


Bilbo’s Last Song is considered by many to be Tolkien’s epilogue to his classic work The Lord of the Rings . As Bilbo Baggins takes his final voyage to the Undying Lands, he must say goodbye to Middle-earth. Poignant and lyrical, the song is both a longing to set forth on his ultimate journey and a tender farewell to friends left behind. Pauline Baynes’s jewel-like illustrations lushly depict both this final voyage and scenes from The Hobbit , as Bilbo remembers his first journey while he prepares for his last.

The Hobbit 3: Lego Reveals Movie SPOILERS!! – moviepilot.com

Original article

When it comes to Lego, there aren’t too many ways of making it any greater than it already is. Certainly, if you’d asked my eight-year old self whether there was anything better, I’d have laughed in your face, and gone back to building my own multicolored X-Mansion.

And then, Lego started making licensing deals with some of the geekiest, coolest and all-around most awesome entertainment brands around. And, suddenly, not only could you have a Lego Luke Skywalker, a Lego Captain America and a Lego Batman – you could have Lego Lord of the Rings minifigs, too…

And, so, my eight-year old self was proved wrong, in the very best way possible.

And now, Lego are taking it one step further – as their new line of playsets for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies proves, they sometimes even tease major plot events…from films that haven’t been released yet.

So – prompted by the awesome breakdown on TheOneRing.net[1] – I thought I’d take a look at some of the most awesome details of the upcoming Battle of the Five Armies that its Lego sets are hiding.

Note, potential SPOILERS just…everywhere, below…

For instance…

The Lego The Lonely Mountain Set

Included Minifigs:

Smaug the Dragon, Dwalin, Balin, Bilbo Baggins, Kili, Fili.

The Biggest Questions for the Movie:

Why are Fili and Kili at The Lonely Mountain? Why is Smaug at The Lonely Mountain? Why does nothing make sense any more?

The Lego Battle of the Five Armies Set

Included Minifigs:

Dain II Ironfoot, Azog the Defiler, Thorin Oakenshield, 2 x Gundabad Orcs, Bard the Bowman, Gwaihir the Windlord, Legolas Greenleaf.

The Biggest Questions for the Movie:

Why is The Battle of The Five Armies in Dale? I mean, that’s awesome – and Peter Jackson’s already hinted at it – but still… Also, why don’t I already own a Dain minifig?

The Lego Witch-King Battle Set

Included Minifigs:

Elrond, Galadriel, The Witch-king of Angmar.

The Biggest Questions for the Movie:

Where the heck is Gandalf? And, if he’s still trapped when this fight happens, are we going to see a whole other fight with Sauron?

The Lego Attack on Lake-Town Set

Included Minifigs:

Bard the Bowman, Bain son of Bard, Tauriel, 2 x Gundabad Orcs.

The Biggest Questions for the Movie:

Why wasn’t this a Desolation of Smaug playset? Is The Battle of the Five Armies just going to redo that entire scene? I mean, cool, but still…

The key thing here, though?

I still really want to play with them all…

What do you guys think? What’s your favorite Hobbit Lego set?
