LEGO Lord of the Rings Monsters and Villains Poster


No I'm not done talking yet and I obviously don't know how to space things out.

This poster popped up on TheHDRoom promoting the upcoming LEGO Lord of the Rings video game. I assume there's a "Beasts and Heroes" equivalent poster floating around out there somewhere but heck if I know for sure. LEGO doesn't tell me these things.

The page on TheHDRoom also has a promotional "Developer Diaries" video where TTGames sits down and talks about, I'm guessing, developing the game. I've embedded it below for your convenience:





LEGO Lord of the Rings comes out on October 30th. Pre-order from Gamestop to secure your very own Elrond minifigure.

Is it just me, or does each successive game have less and less stuff actually made out of LEGO in it? Maybe that's just because these are mostly cutscenes? The visuals look wonderful, but if there aren't any minifigs in the frame, I'd be hard pressed to even recognize that they were from a LEGO game.

That's an incredible looking poster. I'm crossing my fingers that we'll see some of that actually made in sets.

I agree with Mr. Ed. If it weren't for the minifigs, you wouldn't be able to tell this apart from any other LOTR game. Especially now that they are using the soundtrack for the voices, this simply feels like a recreation of the movies with minifigs replacing the actors on screen. :S I feel like the games are starting to loose their charm and originality with these authentic voices and environments...

It may just be because these are cutscenes. In actual levels, where you've got stuff to interact with, there is bound to be more LEGO (I hope). I can't actually recall from the few snippets of gameplay that I've seen if there IS more actual LEGO in the levels, but thinking back, I do recall that the vast majority of the environments, even in the first LEGO Star Wars, were not actually LEGO. They just had a lot of LEGO elements interspersed in them, like windows, doors, railings, vehicles, trees, barrels, etc.

That Saruman minifig gives me the chills! Hope to see him made in a set soon!
