LEGO Icons 10316 The Lord of The Rings: Rivendell D2C Officially Revealed | March 2023

We've known for a while that LEGO Lord of the Rings is returning in 2023 but we now have official images about the $500 D2C set. This set in particular is 10316 Rivendell giving us our first look at Lord of the Rings in 2023 away from the LEGO Brickheadz theme as the LEGO Icons set will include a range of new Minifigures. No more Lord of the Rings sets are rumoured for 2023 but there is the possibility of another D2C in 2024.

But back to 10316, it has a stunning Minifigure selection with 15 included and many of these being exclusive or brand new characters. These include the nine companions Gandalf, Legolas, Gimli, Aragorn, Boromir, Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin, the elves Elrond and Arwen, the aged Bilbo Baggins, Gimli's father Gloin, and two other elves.

There are also five statues at the foot of the main house's tower, as well as another one holding the broken Narsil sword indoors. And that broken sword piece of one many new pieces included in this $500 set with 6,167 pieces. This easily makes it the biggest and most expensive LEGO Lord of the Rings set yet.

For the main build though, it measures 39 cm high, 75cm wide and 50 cm deep but can be displayed in many different ways with its modular design. The council, the main house, Bilbo's room, a portion of the tower, the stream and forge area, and the pavilion can all be separated from the rest of the set. These can be separated using the usual tech holes that we've seen in many modular like LEGO sets.

The most appealing part of the build has to be Elrond's Council, which is located in the centre of the set and is where the Fellowship of the Ring is formed. The main house also contains fragments of Narsil, Elendil's mighty sword and much more allowing plenty of space for different Minifigure. Other weapons can be found in the forge or the armoury under the pavilion adding to the range of LEGO Lord of the Rings accessories.

The Rivendell first is captured beautifully with the great arhitctecture and patterns on the roof matching the scenery. From trees, plants, rivers, bridges and more, the whole scene is here in a perfect LEGO form. All of this and more make up the 6,167 pieces that are included in the LEGO Icons set which will be available as early as 5th March 2023 for LEGO VIPs and 8th March 2023 for everyone else.
