Lego has confirmed it will bring Frodo and co. to its block party this year, with a Lego Lord of the Rings collection set to launch this summer. A Lego The Hobbit range is also earmarked for late 2012 to coincide with the film's cinema release.

Gandalf the Grey, Aragorn, Legolas, Boromir and Gimli will join Frodo, Pippin, Merry and Samwise Gamgee as minifigures, along with various accompanying Lego sets, which have yet to be officially revealed.

Tolkien fan site, The One Ring, has managed to uncover some of the details, though, leaking several shots of proposed Lego packages, from the inexpensive 83-piece 'Gandalf Arrives' to the full blown 1368-piece 'Battle of Helm's Deep'.

With The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey pegged to hit cinemas in December, Lego is preparing its movie tie-in collection as well and has several Hobbit kits in the works.

Alternatively, if you can't wait for the summer, get crafting your own LoTR-related constructions like the guy who used 50,000 blocks on a Barad-dûr replica. ®
