The slipped-up posting from the European online retailer ShopTo, seen here via google cache, seems to back that up. The posted (presumably European) release date is October 26th—if accurate, that means that we'll get to spend this fall guiding Frodo, Sam and the gang through a LEGO-fied version of Middle Earth.

The toys themselves are cute as heck, and I bet LEGO Golem will be just adorable.


Update: A reader has sent in this picture taken from a Toys 'R Us, depicting the ad on the back of the LEGO Mines of Moria set. Seems to confirm that yep, we're getting a LEGO LotR Game:

DISCUSSION

Isn't it a little late for this? Seems like they missed their chance, LotR isn't really super-popular anymore. It's all about Game of Thrones nowadays, and I hesitate to think how THAT would work in LEGO.
