The Legoship of the Ring



?I’m just going to assume these are real because 1) they match the official promo pics Lego has been releasing recently for their upcoming LotR sets, and 2) they look fucking fantastic. God, the amount of unique personality they’ve packed into each little Hobbit is amazing. You know, it’s just dawned on me that in the very near future I’ll be able to purchase a Christopher Lee as Saruman Lego figure.

…please excuse me, as I need to go change my underpants. Infinite thanks to Mike S. for the tip.

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
