Lord of the Rings Bootleg of Lego Helm's Deep by Lepin


One of the best things from Lord of the Rings, now [boot]legofied! 


The Ring of the Sorcery. Um. Okay. 

This set looks great. I would've preferred more Uruk-hai but 4 isn't too shabby as well. Oh there's also a horse! This set just really looks exciting, I'm thinking of getting one for myself even though I'm not a big LOTR fan, but I am a fan more or less of course. 

This set was actually copied from Lego 9474 The Battle of Helm's Deep back in 2012. Lepin seems to be copying old sets a lot recently, not just Star Wars but this as well..

  1. They didn't bother with naming some series, I mean Chima is still Chima, Friends series is called Friend, Nexo Knight were Nexo Knights.

    But when Lego wanted to sue them, Lepin changed everything, so STAR WNRS has changed into Star Plan.

    Or ex Nexo Knights became Next Cavaliers for less resemblance with original name.

    So no wonder this one is the ring of the sorcery. Not the worst name, yet not the best.

    1. I'm glad Lepin chose to go that direction. Less problems for them and more respect towards Lego, though still disrespectful of course haha
