“One Lego set to rule them all, One Lego set to find them, One Lego set to bring them all. and in the darkness bind them.”
That’s right young hobbit lords, a lego set replicating HELM’S DEEP.
If Aragorn is right, there are at least 10,000 Uruk-hais on their way right now! That's a sh%& ton of uruk-hais! Take a look at this ugly guy...pretty realistic right? Unfortunately, this set doesn't come with 10,000 of these ugly things, that would be ridiculous. But, still an awesome set to build!
There's absolutely no way this can defend against the dark armies of MORDOR!
Before you even try tackling Minas Tirith, you gotta master Helm's Deep, Right? CORRECT.
Plus, who couldn’t love The Lord of the Rings, right? I mean, right? The battle between light and dark. Good and evil. Orcs. Elves. Frodo and Sam! Of course, they’ll love it. How could they not? What better scene to get them started with, too? The battle of Helm’s Deep! They don’t need to know the plot yet to feel the excitement of this one. With all the authentic weapons, including the Uruk-hai. Swords, bows, double-bladed axes. It even has the siege ladders and the bomb for blowing open the fortress! They’ll love it. I mean, obviously, you can’t let them just play with it totally unsupervised. They might do something stupid, like have Legolas slide down the stairs on his shield like they did in the movie. Or worse, have Aragorn toss Gimli like some common midget!
No, you want them to have the authentic experience. You’d better play with them, just to be sure. Otherwise, when you read them the books and get to the battle of Helm’s Deep they’ll be all confused. Plus, this is out of production now, so there’s a limited supply. You wouldn’t want them playing too rough and ruining it. This could be a collector’s item someday! Might be worth something to them. Actually, on second thought those snot-nosed little brats would probably just destroy it and go back to their iPads. You should probably just keep it in the packaging. You’ve got just the space right next to your mint-condition Battlestar Galactica Lego Set.
