May 28 2024

Build the Dark Lord’s dark tower with this massive new Barad-Dûr LEGO set, which drops next month.

Barad-Dûr, built by Sauron in the land of Mordor near Mount Doom, is one of the most important locations in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. It was nearly destroyed during the Second Age during the Last Alliance of Elves and Men when Isildur defeated Sauron. But, the power of the One Ring helped Sauron rebuild thousands of years later.

The quest to destroy the One Ring ends here in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. On June 4th, you’ll be able to build the Dark Tower and Eye of Sauron in brick. Get a Fell Beast set free when you buy before Jun 7th – it features an articulated Nazgul minifigure.
