The Lord of the Rings The Battle of Helm’s Deep Review (LEGO)

What It Is

With The Lord of the Rings The Battle of Helm's Deep building set, kids can repel the Uruk-hai army before they blast the walls and climb the siege ladders. Based on The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, this set comes with 1,368 pieces, including eight minifigures: Aragorn, Gimli, Haldir, King Theoden, a Berserker Uruk-hai, and three Uruk-hai. All of the minifigures have two faces, so kids can turn their heads around to put on their battle faces. The Helm's Deep fortress features an outer ring, a tower with horn, an opening main gate, an exploding wall, a side door attack function, and a catapult. There is also an interior throne room. Accessories include a siege ladder, bomb, and horse with poseable head and legs. Weapons include swords, a double-bladed axe, a single-bladed axe, a bow, a shield, and Uruk-hai weapons. This set can be combined with the Uruk-hai Army set, sold separately, so kids can build up the army for even bigger battles.
