This June, Lord of the Rings fans will be able to make all their oliphant-sized dreams come true, by picking up this brand-new LEGO set of Barad-dûr.

Made up of over 5,000 pieces, this set is a perfect emulation of the dark tower of Mordor, featuring dozens of details from Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. From throne rooms and the Black Gate to a throne room containing the Palantír, this really is one set to rule them all.

Most distinctive of all is the summit, which features the glowing Eye of Sauron, forever watching and waiting for the one ring.

This set will be available in June and costs a whopping £400, but we think it would make the ultimate collector’s item and a perfect prop for your next Lord of the Rings marathon – available at Amazon Prime.
