Official Unveiling of 10237 The Tower of Orthanc

10237 Tower of Orthanc

Update: Video has been added below the picture thumbnails.

LEGO officially unveils their latest UCS set, 10237 Tower of Orthanc. The set sees an additional Great Eagle which was thought to be only available in 79007 Battle At The Black Gate. An Ent is also included, though he is not named, which begs the question, where are the Ent battle packs? It may not be as grandiose as OneLUG’s The Last March of the Ents, but given the price, the scale, the detailed interior, and play features, it looks to be a GREAT set. Plus, I think it’s kinda cute. More images and official press release below. Video will be added as soon as I get it.
