EVERY LEGO Lord of the Rings Set: The Complete Guide and List
LEGO Lord of the Rings sets enable you to recreate all the exciting scenes from the Lord of the Rings series, ranging from the Pirate Ship Ambush to the Battle at Helm’s Deep! Starting in 2012, LEGO has manufactured 15 different Lord of the Rings LEGO sets.
Although the most recent Lord of the Rings sets were released in 2013, some Hobbit-themed sets were released more recently (that’s a topic for a different day, however). It’s unclear if or when LEGO may create additional Lord of the Rings LEGO sets.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. Let’s explore all of the LEGO Lord of the Rings sets ever made!
