Lord of the Rings Set: Minas Tirith is a project on LEGO CUUSOO created by NujuMetru on March 1st, 2013.  Based on The Lord of the Rings, it is a model of Minas Tirith which is constructed modularly, and centers on being used with minifigures, rather than some projects have, going with microscale takes on the city. Currently, it is the most supported LOTR-themed project.

This model features many movie-accurate details, from a LEGO-head-flinging catapult, to Pippin lighting the beacon, a fearsome Fell Beast, and even Denethor's throne room.

This is my idea for a new LEGO Lord of the Rings set. The siege of Minas Tirith, as seen in "The Return of the King," is an iconic scene from the world of Tolkien that TLG has not yet covered with their products. I believe this is a critical scene that deserves to be made, and as I think I have showcased above, the set can exist at a manageable size, with plenty of figures and play features, while maintaining its signature appearance.


As you can see, a modular design would make Minas Tirith more manageable to build, store, and play with. The different curtains of the city are held in place when assembled by spacer bricks on the ground.


The white city is filled with fun features and detailed interiors. Some rooms include the library, the throne room, the catacombs, and a kitchen cellar.


Of course, a Mordor Orc Army would make an excellent battle-builder set, something like the Uruk Hai Army set from the first wave of Lord of the Rings sets. The rubber-band powered catapult throws the spheres. The trebuchets on the city walls are also fully functional.


Imposing, no? Wouldn't you want to have one of these in your collection? I sure would, and I don't think there are many LEGO Lord of the Rings fans who could say no to a set like this!

Behold, the White City in all its glory! You don't have to be Boromir to appreciate the beauty of this model and its modular design. Lord of the Rings fans of all ages can enjoy assembling and reenacting the largest battle of the third age. Nicely done!
