LEGO Lord of the Rings Review: Tower of Orthanc

Who’d have thunk that putting together the LEGO Lord of the Rings 10237 Tower of Orthanc Building Set would take six hours? It probably would have gone faster if I’d hired some orcs and goblins to help out, but they’re not the best houseguests. Last time, they ganked our entire supply of jerky and left muddy footprints all over the carpet. Analysis: Greenskins are jerks. At least they didn’t bring a cave troll.

Anyway: Behold! The Tower of Orthanc stands tall and proud above House Pirillo! Watch the time-lapsed video to see how it was made whole from over 2,000 not-so-easy pieces!
