Lord of the Rings Battle of Helm’s Deep Scene Recreated in LEGO



With evil Uruk-hai and heroic Rohirrim, the battle of Helm’s Deep from the Lord of the Rings has been recreated in epic style, and all with LEGO.

The Battle of Helm’s Deep from The Lord of the Rings has been recreated entirely with LEGO. The scene from The Two Towers, which sees the human forces of Rohan and elves from Lothlórien fend off a siege from Saruman’s mighty Uruk-hai, is a fan-favourite moment in Peter Jackson’s beloved film trilogy. The first movie, The Fellowship of the Ring, will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of its release in December. 

Though smaller in scale than The Return of the King’s Battle of the Pelennor fields, the set-piece is celebrated for its tension, gritty realism, and majestic drama, as the fortress’ defenders are pushed further back by Saruman’s evil forces. The battle takes place towards the climax of the trilogy’s second instalment, and even features the famous scene of Legolas shooting arrows while shield-surfing. In the film, the small army defending Helm’s Deep is saved by the return of Gandalf the White, accompanied by Éomer and 2,000 additional cavalry.

Now, in an image shared to Reddit by user Videogame1992, fans of the series have the chance to see what the famous battle would look like if it were made of LEGO. The image is strikingly accurate to how the siege takes place in the film, with scores of Saruman’s Uruk-hai scaling the walls on ladders and supported by siege ballistae on the ground. The reconstruction even includes the small stream that runs through the fortress’s Deeping Wall, which ultimately leads to its destruction. Check out the post below: 

Fans will be surely be amazed at the level of detail that has been put into the huge LEGO recreation. Helm’s Deep stands alongside the Shire, Minas Tirith, Rivendell, and the fortress of Isengard as one of The Lord of the Rings’ most iconic locations. Fans have remade Helm’s Deep in Minecraft before, along with a few other of those memorable settings, but the real-life LEGO structure stands out by capturing the scale in a way that is hard to do virtually.

Amazon Prime Video is currently producing a TV series set in Middle-Earth which precedes the events of The Lord of the Rings, and audiences will be eager to find out if the show revisits any of the famous locations from Jackson’s trilogy – and if they do, what they’ll look like. The series, which Jeff Bezos was directly involved in negotiating for, hopes to capitalise on the renewed interest in fantasy TV generated by Game of Thrones. So far, not much is known about the project, other than some interesting Hobbit casting choices and a few vague plot details. This image of the LEGO Helm’s Deep shows that the fanbase remains eager to return to Middle Earth, though they likely won’t settle for anything less than The Lord of the Rings trilogy’s epic scale.
