A look back at the latest leaks of the next Lego Lord of the Rings Barad-dûr 10333 set

After the resounding success of Rivendell 10316, LEGO is once again immersing its fans in Middle-earth with the unofficial announcement of the LEGO Icons 10333 The Lord of the Rings – Barad-dûr set. The rumors that have been circulating since January 2024 seem to be confirmed: Sauron's sinister fortress will soon be erected into LEGO pieces.

Details of the LOTR Barad-dûr 10333 set

The leak revealed shows an impressive Barad-dûr tower with its massive dimensions: 83 cm high, 44 cm wide and 36 cm deep, promising a majestic presence in any collection. While official images are yet to be released, fans can already imagine the imposing aura this model will exude, with its 5471 pieces painstakingly crafted to recreate Mordor's central stronghold.

LEGO seems to have taken the details to the extreme. The interior is full of themed chambers – from cells where you can almost hear the echoes of captives, to armories brimming with weapons for Sauron's legions. Aficionados of The Lord of the Rings will be able to relive the darkest and most heroic moments through this construction.
