Lego Lord Of The Rings Minifigures - Complete Your LOTR Collection

Updated on August 22, 2012

If you are looking for all the Lord Of The Rings minifigures then you are in the right place. Here we are going to tell you all about the LOTR minifigures and how to go about collecting them. We will tell you which minifigures come with which sets and basically fill you in on all the details regarding the minifigs. If you are looking to complete your fellowship, we will tell you how to go about doing it.

The Lord Of The Rings is one of the most well known fantasy films of all time. In 2011 Lego finally made the decision to turn the story into Lego form. So starting in the summer of 2012 Lego release their long awaited Lord Of The Rings Lego sets. The minifigures these contain really are lovely, but the fact is that if you want all the characters you know and love you are going to have to buy quite a lot of Lego. So that’s where we come in. So what are the minifigures and where can you get hold of them.

The Fellowship Minifigures

The LOTR Bad Guys

The Cave Troll

The LOTR Minifigures That Come In Sets

Unfortunately Lego do not sell individual Lord Of The Rings minifigures. To buy these direct from the company you must first of all buy a set. These can be very expensive. Currently there are seven sets due for release and these all contain various minifigures. Rather than it being a lottery as to which sets you need to buy in order to obtain certain minifigures, we have drawn out a list of the sets and the minifigures they each contain. So here are the sets to be released in the summer of 2012 and the minifigures they contain.

Gandalf Arrives 9469 - Gandalf & Frodo

Shelob Attacks 9470 - Frodo, Sam, Gollum

Uruk-Hai Army 9471 - 5 Uruk-Hai Warriors

Attack On Weathertop 9272 - Aragorn, Frodo, Merry, 2 Nazgul

The Mines Of Moria 9473 - Boromir, Pippin, Gimli, Legolas, Cave Troll, 2 goblins, 2 skeletons

The Battle Of Helms Deep 9474 - Theoden, Haldir, Aragorn, Gimli, 5 Uruk-Hai.

The Orc Forge 9476 - Five Orcs

As you can see there is a real variety of minifigures available. As well as good guys you can also collect plenty of orcs, Uruk-Hai, trolls and even skeletons. The main set that everyone is likely to be after is of course the nine members of the Fellowship of the Ring. To complete these set you would have to buy Gandalf Arrives, Shelob Attacks, Attack On Weathertop and the Mines Of Moria. So that’s four of the seven sets which is not to bad really. Plus you avoid buying the rather expensive Helms Deep set, although this is probably the best of the lot.

If you are after some bad guys then the Uruk-Hai army has been called by many a ‘Battle Pack’ meaning for a relatively low price you get a fair amount of figures. In reality though if you are going to buy all these sets, it will cost you a fair bit of money. Probably the best minifigure available is the Cave Troll, this is much larger than the other figures and it really is nice. This one is included with the Mines Of Moria set and we have included a picture of it to show you just how good this new figure is.

Buying Individual Minifigures

Although you can not buy individual LOTR minifigures from Lego, there are places online that you can buy them from. Amazon and eBay will have on offer all the characters you could want, you may have to pay a little over the odds for these but if you are looking to complete your collection then this seems to be one of the best ways to go about it. You can shop around and find these at quite decent prices if you are careful and you should be able to complete your set fairly easily.

Another way to complete your set is to swap them. Children love to collect things and are often happy to swap characters with each other. If your not a child and you see you self as more of a collector, there are forums and places online where you can trade characters. This may well be a cheaper way of getting your hands on all the minifigures you want. As time goes by it will be interesting to see which ones are most sought after by collectors.

We are expecting to see lots more new LOTR and even Hobbit Lego coming out in the coming months and years so no doubt we will also see lots of new minifigures released. There are plenty of other characters that we have not seen yet, some that spring to mind would be Saruman, Arwen, Galadriel, Bilbo, and Elrond. There are plenty of other bad guys that we could well see turned into minifigures as well. No doubt the future looks very promising for fans of both Lord Of The Rings and Lego. One figure that has been talked about is the dragon Smaug from The Hobbit, although Lego may even turn this into an actual build set. There really is so much scope for forthcoming sets and we are likely to see plenty more impressive minifigures in the future.
