LEGO has unveiled its new Lord of the Rings set that has more than 6,000 pieces

If you are a Middle Earth nerd then gather around and bring your mates, because you're all going to want to see this.

LEGO and Lord of the Rings have teamed up once again, and hoo boy, this collaboration is a good one.

We give you Rivendell: LEGO edition.

LEGO Design master Mike Psaiki said, as per Brickfan, that this is the big one that both Lord of the Rings fans and LEGO Masters have been itching for.

"We know many of our fans have been anticipating a set like this for a long-time, but a great LEGO The Lord Of The Rings set is never late, it arrives precisely when it means to," he said, quoting none other than Gandalf the Grey.

"It was important to us that we created something really special in this recreation of Rivendell.

"We aimed to add as much detail as possible and create an engaging experience throughout the build to delight fans recreating scenes or proudly displaying Elrond’s home.

Psaiki added: "We are really pleased with the final design and how we have brought Rivendell to life in brick form."

Fans of the books, Peter Jackson's films, and Prime Video's The Rings of Power will all be familiar with the elven city, which is a key and powerful seat within Middle Earth.

This isn't LEGO's first foray into a Lord of the Rings set, though.

When Peter Jackson’s films were still gracing the big screen, LEGO released a collection of Lord of the Rings sets and mini-figures.

The largest one by far was a 1,300 piece recreation of the Battle of Helm’s Deep.

The collection also included a small, 243-piece recreation of the the Council of Elrond, which left Lord of the Rings fans underwhelmed.

By LEGO's modern standards, they're big sets, but not that big.

But we have more good news, so hold on to your hats and don't lose your second breakfast over this.

The new set of Rivendell will include more than 6,000 pieces.

The LEGO Rivendell will set you back £429.99 in the UK, AUD$799.99 in Australia, USD$500 in the US, or one Tharni, which is worth one-quarter of a Castar in Gondor, obviously.
