Building Orthanc, Part 1

Our new Lego project comes from the Lord of the Rings set, inspired by the recent movies, which were (a bit loosely in places) inspired by the original novels. We're building the Tower of Orthanc.  It has 2,359 pieces and is recommended for ages 14+. Honestly, we've had a harder time working on this kit so far compared to the architectural kits which are rated higher. If you're shopping for someone else, pay very close attention to their dexterity and visual acuity, not just chronological age.

Double back to see our earlier Robie House project.
