and here is the official press release:

Building Sets Based on Epic Film Trilogy and Forthcoming Theatrical Release Slated for 2012

Warner Bros. Consumer Products and The LEGO Group announced today a partnership that awards the world’s leading construction toy brand exclusive rights to develop build-and-play construction sets based on THE LORD OF THE RINGS™ trilogy and the two films based on THE HOBBIT™. The multi-year licensing agreement grants access to the library of characters, settings, and stories for THE LORD OF THE RINGS property, as well as films The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There and Back Again.

LEGO® THE LORD OF THE RINGS construction sets are slated for a rolling global launch beginning in June 2012 in the United States, with LEGO THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY scheduled for later in the year.

“Only LEGO, with their expertise in the construction category, is capable of doing justice to the incredibly imaginative environments depicted in the world of THE LORD OF THE RINGS and the two films based on THE HOBBIT,” said Karen McTier, executive vice president, domestic licensing and worldwide marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “These films give life to amazing worlds and characters and we are thrilled to bring fans these products that deliver an imaginative play experience befitting of these beloved properties.”

The LEGO THE LORD OF THE RINGS collection will translate into LEGO form the epic locations, scenes and characters of Middle-earth as depicted in all three films, including The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

In late 2012, LEGO THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY will give fans of all ages a chance to build and play out the fantastical story and new characters of the legendary Middle-earth adventures depicted in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey from Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson, slated to premiere December 14, 2012.

“Our collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products has delivered numerous worldwide successes in the construction toy aisle with lines like LEGO HARRY POTTER and LEGO BATMAN, introducing us to loyal audiences who love great stories, strong characters and the toys that they inspire,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president, licensing and entertainment for The LEGO Group. “It’s particularly exciting to now be able to create sets based on the fantasy worlds and characters from THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy and the two films based on THE HOBBIT, not only because we know they will foster collectability and creative play, but also because these are two properties that our fans have been asking us to create for years.”

Information about the sets and collectible minifigures from both collections will be unveiled at a later date at TheLordoftheRings.LEGO.com.

HA! HAHAHAHAHA! THIS IS AWESOME! Man I thought I was gonna be pretty much done with LEGO after Harry Potter. I thought "Not even Marvel can get me back into LEGO."

Those sons of bitches.

They found the one thing, THE ONE THING that can drag me right back to their addicting brickyness.

And believe it or not I dragged my dinosaur of a VHS tape of The Hobbit (1977 Animated) out from its dungeon that it's languished in for years and watched it five minutes before seeing this post.

That is incredible news! I can't wait to see these sets and would love to have a LOTR Lego game!!!!! But as always with any news regarding LOTR properties I find myself wishing so much that wave 3 of the LOTR minimates had been released!

This is pretty exciting news. I'm still enjoying the POTC ships and sets. I wonder if we will see video games for Lego LOTR as well.

Oh man I got to start saving my money now! I didn't think I would want to get into collecting any other legos beside Star Wars but that desire is going out the window! Can't wait for these! (Although I will always wish that wave 3 minimates had been released)

Ya gotta get these:

Weathertop (Aragorn, Frodo, Merry)

Shelob's Attack (Sam, Frodo, Gollum)

Gandalf's Arrival (Gandalf the Grey, Frodo)

Mines of Moria (Boromir, Pippin, Legolas, Gimli)

That should do it.

I bought Helms Deep, and got the rest in a lot on eBay. I'd love to take a picture, but I'm not sure how to upload one.
