LEGO Releasing 3-Foot Tall Eye Of Sauron Tower Build Set

Dropping June 4th, the LEGO Lord of the Rings: Barad-dûr build set contains 5,471 pieces, which, if assembled correctly according to the instructions, result in a 35.2″ tall recreation of Sauron’s dark fortress, complete with Eye Of Sauron on top. If not assembled correctly, you may end up with a sprawling 8″ angular turd. The set includes five interior rooms, as well as Frodo, Sam, Gollum, Gothmog, Sauron, Mouth of Sauron, and several orc minifigs. The Eye Of Sauron is battery operated and lights up, and the set costs $460. *spit-takes elf blood* $460?! I don’t have that kind of money! “Not with how much you spend on elf blood.” Hey — how many other 800-year old warlocks are there with skin this soft? Because the very few others that I know look like a mummy’s butthole.
