I hope Lego does at least try to cap wave 3 with some sort of Minas Tirith. I know it will inevitably be underwhelming compared to what is on film but it would at least be a starting point. Perhaps a 2-part sort of thing like they did with Helms Deep and the Uruk Hai pack.
That said I would like to see another variation on Gollum, maybe standing/stooping. I'm also kinda expecting to see a set from TT containing Wargs since a mold has already been produced.
A Tom Bombadil would be awesome but due to his exclusion from the films this one is highly unlikely.
If there is only one more set, make it the scene with Derhelm (Eowyn), Merry in Rohan armor and the Lord of the Nazgûl on his fell beast (brick built.) Eowyn also needs her alternate woman form. This scene will fit into several Lego niches; fight scene, weird scary beast.
We definitely need Gondor armor!
My hope that LoTR would go on and on in Lego like Star Wars is dead, so I'm stocking up on multiple sets. Those five Weathertops turned out to be a good idea.
We can all hope, can't we? :-)
The only other large set I could see is Dale or Laketown but it would essentially be an extended version of MMV. Many of the other locations are simply too grand to represent in Lego form.
Maybe we will never get Gondor, but just the White Three, or its gates or so...
LEGO does love castles, so I could see some version of either Minas Tirith or the ruins of Osgiliath in the future. Both would provide good opportunities to include Faramir.
- Inn at Bree
- Lorien (yay Galadriel)
- Mount Doom (small set with Sam, Frodo, and Gollum similar to Wizard battle)
I don't think it would be a good seller though, not if it contains the same three characters as an existing one.
It's also nice to hear other people express a desire for a flaming Denethor. I always hoped TLG would eventually do the funeral pyre scene in Gondor to give us a Denethor, Faramir, and Pippin minifig, but thought it would probably be too morbid for Lego's taste.
