Two new polybag sets, 30211 Uruk Hai with Ballista and 30210 Frodo with Cooking Corner will be joining the LEGO The Lord of the Rings lineup. The Uruk Hai with Ballista polybag is a army builders dream come true, unfortunately, the same is not quite true for Frodo with Cooking Corner, unless you want to build an army of Frodos. No word yet on availability.

Undoubtedly, the best part of the upcoming LEGO The Lord of the Rings theme may be the minifigures, and there are plenty of them to be had. Checklists featuring all of The Lord of the Rings minifigures will be on the back of the instruction booklets of the sets in the lineup. This should make collecting the minifigures a little more hassle free, but unfortunately, as expensive as ever.
