?From Variety, and sent to me by the wonderful Flailx:
Warner Bros. Consumer Products has awarded the toymaker the rights to
create action figures and playsets based on “The Lord of the Rings”
trilogy and the two upcoming films based on “The Hobbit,” the first of
which bows at the end of 2012.
The multiyear deal grants Lego access to the library of
characters, settings and stories of “The Lord of the Rings,” “The
Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” and “The Hobbit: There and Back Again,”
all helmed by Peter Jackson.
The first toys Lego plans to produce will hit store shelves in
June, tied to “Lord of the Rings,” with new construction sets planned
for the weeks leading up to the Dec. 14 bow of “An Unexpected Journey.”
FUCK AND YES.
OH MY GOD. THERE’S PROBABLY GOING TO BE A LEGO LORD OF THE RINGS GAME.
