About this deal

I like the stone columns sprouting from the tiled floor, with more candelabra and desks correctly distributed around the chamber. Each desk includes an inkwell, a candle and a map. One shows Sauron's fortress of Barad-dûr looming over Mordor, while the other displays rivers approaching a lake. Perhaps this map represents Nen Hithoel, where the Argonath is located.

LEGO 10316 The Lord of the Rings Rivendell review | Brickset

It’s interesting that this is the only set to include the entire Fellowship, which didn’t last much longer after leaving the next Elf pitstop. Detailed decor ⁠– Details include Frodo's bedroom and Elrond's study, and the different sections can be displayed separately: for example, the Council of Elrond™ can be lifted off the main model Official images have demonstrated that the Council of Elrond can be displayed separately from Rivendell, presumably for anyone seeking a smaller The Lord of the Rings display. Options are always welcome and the model does look impressive alone, but I am not convinced this feature was truly necessary. Rivendell appears decidedly peculiar without its focal location, after all.It seems no one has mentioned an interesting detail yet (cf. extra pictures): the Eye of Sauron is hidden under the council scene, which can be removed (an excellent function as well)."

I am really tempted by it, but I hear rumours of what's coming this year, and I want them confirmed before I surrender. Gimli has never had the classic lego axe, the one he had in the original run (53454 Weapon axe head clip) was introduced for him in 2012 " Excellent review. The map details are strange. I don't think it would be bad to simplify the map but Orthanc inside of Mordor does look weird.But before we get into each section, let’s take a look at the minifigures. 10316 The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell Minifigures

The Figures of 10316 Rivendell | The Rambling Brick

Give as a gift – This set makes a thoughtful gift for film-lovers and fans of The Lord of the Rings™, who will love immersing themselves in Rivendell™ The one notable innovation that really elevates the look of The Hobbits are their new dual-moulded short legs, which really emphasise their bare feet. Oh, and paper capes also make a return, which feels right. Just like it was in 2013. Gimli completes the Fellowship of the Ring and introduces a new beard component, with lovely texture and braided details on both sides. The dark brown helmet slots neatly over Gimli's beard and has been updated from the earlier minifigure, which surprised me because the existing part was tremendous. The new design is similarly impressive though, adorned with gold and bronze patterns.The rear wall of the bedroom displays another mural, recreating the image of Isildur preparing to slice the Ring from Sauron's finger. Sauron appears delightfully menacing in minifigure form and the attention to detail on this painting is outstanding, even including a blue flag that also appears on the original mural, shown when Aragorn and Boromir first meet. The frame looks lovely too. Remarkably, a unique accessory has been developed to represent Elendil's shattered blade and this weapon looks absolutely perfect. The distinctive hilt is instantly identifiable and the uneven break looks realistic too. Hopefully the reforged sword taken up by Aragorn, dubbed Andúril, will appear in any future The Lord of the Rings sets.
