One Does Not Simply Screw Up A LEGO Set This Badly

One of the newest playsets in LEGO's Lord of the Rings line is the Council of Elrond. A key moment in the events of the trilogy, it's notable not just because it brings the Fellowship of the Ring together, but because the internet has transformed one line into perhaps the series' most memorable.

It's crazy, then, that LEGO's set immortalising the Council doesn't include a Boromir figure. I mean, on the bright side, it does include a mechanism where Gimli can be thrown backwards after trying to whack the Ring with his axe, but that's small consolation for the lack of a contemplative Boromir.

Those happy to have Arwen and Elrond in his stead, the set is going for $30.
