Think there will be a third LotR wave?

Postby RushifedBA » Wed Jun 12, 2013 4:49 pm

Do you guys believe that there will be a third wave for LotR? I really hope they do. I feel like they are still missing on some fun possible sets. So do you guys think there will be a third wave? Maybe even a forth? Also what other scenes would you like them to create?

Personally I am hoping for Osgiliath, Edoras, faction battle packs and a set featuring an Olpihant.

Yes, I'm sure there will. There are still a lot of obvious set ideas around the Battle of the Pelanor Fields. There's sure to be one of Eowyn, Merry, the Witch King and the Fell Beast. An oliphant set, probably with Legolas. Hopefully some with siege engines.

I am going to shift this over to Dear LEGO, which is where we often have these threads about potential future sets.

The current trend seems to be alternating between LOTR and Hobbit sets (I'm guessing we'll see the next hobbit wave around the December film release?).
I'd imagine this will continue until the final Hobbit film (December 2014?) which should allow for a third wave of hobbit sets and LOTR.

Will there be? Possibly. It depends how long they own the license for. Will it contain a lot of sets? Maybe. If you look at the long running licensed sets of Harry Potter and Spongebob, there were years when there were only a few sets. But then, who can even guess? Because the last year of Harry Potter was hands down it's best and a lot of sets.

With two more Hobbit movies still to be released (as of the timing of this post), I couldn't imagine Lego not trying to squeeze as much money from the licenses while they're still popular. I'm sure most of us hope that LotR will continue on to be a perpetual license as Star Wars has been. Some really cool parts and figs.

Only time will tell,

With two more movies coming out, I'm sure we'll have a few more waves.

Yes there will be. I heard somewhere that Lego Lotr wll continue until 2016. Which means we have 3 more waves to go! :D
