Set 10333 on LEGO.com




After the magical visit to Rivendell (above right) last year, 2024 now takes us to the terrifying tower, Barad-dûr. 


The base measures 30cm x 45cm (12 x 17.5 inches), which is a substantial footprint. Of course the height of the tower is what you really want to know – it comes in at a whopping 83cm (32.5 inches). Want it even taller? Well the modular nature of the set means you could potentially buy multiples and heighten the tower!


The Eye of Sauron is really cool, rotating upon multiple axes, like a gyroscope. It lights up too, with the light bricks supplied.

New elements

We can see many new moulds among the 10 minifigures; mostly Pearl Dark Gray helmets!

  • Sauron wears a new mould that combines his helmet and shoulder armour. 
  • There are not one but four new Orc helmets
  • There's a new mould for Gollum, looking more sinister than scary this time, and his bent skeleton arms are a recolour to Tan.
  • A new Orc shield with printing
  • All the Orcs have new printing
There are some great recolours we can spot, too – be sure to come back next time for our full review of the parts and build of LEGO Icons set 10333 The Lord of the Rings: Barad-dûr.

Official press release

Today the LEGO Group, in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products, reveals the LEGO® Icons Lord of the Rings: Barad-Dûr set, inspired by the award-winning film adaptations. Now in brick form, the epic dark tower and Eye of Sauron build has many hidden fan “treasures” and story references from the Lord of the Rings.


Prepare to journey deep into the heart of Middle-earth with the unveiling of the spectacular LEGO Icons Lord of the Rings: Barad-Dûr set! With its imposing 5,471 pieces, this awe-inspiring masterpiece brings to life the dark tower of Mordor in stunning detail, packed with thrilling features and beloved characters from Tolkien's timeless saga.  The journey through the dark tower continues with the throne room – which includes a compartment that opens to reveal a map, and a ladder on the top floor of the tower that can be moved left and right.

At the summit lies the Eye of Sauron that rotates in various directions and features a light brick to make the eye glow. There are also 10 minifigures, including Sauron™, Mouth of Sauron™, Orc™, Frodo, Sam, Gollum™ and Gothmog.

The build is split into four main sections, with the tower section being fully modular. LEGO fans with more than one copy of the set will be able to stack this section to build a taller tower. 


The LEGO® Icons Lord of the Rings: Barad-Dûr set are available for LEGO Insiders from 1st June 2024 at www.LEGO.com/LOTR and LEGO Stores for all from 4th June priced at €459.99 / £399.99/ $459.99/699.99 AUD/.
