The latest LEGO Ideas project to reach 10k supporters on the platform is A Map of Middle Earth by user Artem Biziaev. The project is a wonderful three-dimensional representation of J.R.R. Tolkien's original 1954 drawing. This is the second Lord of the Rings project to reach the 2021 First Stage Review. I wonder if we'll ever see an official return of The Lord of the Rings Theme.
This latest project joins: The Shire, the Hobbithole of Frodo and Bilbo Baggins, Among Us: The Skeld Detailed Map, The Office, Castle of Lord Afol and the Black Knights, The X-Files: I Want to Believe, The House of Chocolate, The Simpsons – The Krusty Burger, Asterix and Obelix, 4½-Litre 1927-31 Bentley ‘Blower’, Scania Next Generation S730, The Karate Kid “Wax On, Wax Off”, Hyrule Castle (The Legend of Zelda), Metroid: Samus Aran’s Gunship, NASA’s SLS & Artemis, Lego Bookends, Animal Crossing: New Horizons Paradise, Claus Toys, Baba Yaga, The Castle of Brickwood Forest, The King's Castle, and The Polar Express, and Jazz Quartet as the projects to reach the First 2021 Review Stage.
From the project creator:
Hey, Lego fans!
I'm Artem. I really love The Lord of the Rings trilogy. And i'm so excited to show you my little Idea.
Before we start let me ask you: do you know that Minas Morgul is across the river from Minas Tirith? That very close! BOOM! Now you know. And can explore more...
Look at this beautiful Middle Earth Lego map! The legend on your table.
I have placed and signed all the key objects from both trilogies. Now everyone can visually explore the path of the heroes there and back again.
Also here are the pretty travelers microfigures for your convenience.
Put your micro-Frodo and micro-Sam in the Dead Swamps, Pippin and Merry in the Fangorn forest, and everyone else in Helm's Deep - so you played the events of the Two Towers.
I hope you enjoy my Middle-earth map!
