Hey, have you heard that Lord of the Rings is coming to LEGO?! We may have mentioned it once or twice. Today, courtesy of LEGO, we present to you a first look at everyone’s favorite elf, Orlando Bloom. Er, I mean Legolas.
This latest image — the third such character-centric poster released by LEGO to promote their forthcoming tie-in with The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings — appears to be a riff on the original Legolas poster you can see below. I’m loving the attention to detail LEGO is putting into these minifigures.
I mean, LEGO’s no dummy; they know that Tolkien’s universe has the potential to be their next Star Wars-level franchise. So of course they’re working hard to get everything just right. Look at those ears, and the hair… I’m pretty sure those are brand new LEGO elements, made specifically for this minifig. And you can see how the quiver full of arrows loops just beneath the head, like backpacks and aqua lungs.
With this much care put into the minifigures, I can’t wait to see the play sets!
