LEGO 10316 The Lord of the Rings Rivendell was announced yesterday, with the set itself as epic as Peter Jackson’s trilogy. Design Master Mike Psiaki, Design Master Wes Talbott, Designer Chris Perron, Senior Graphic Designer Ashwin Visser, Senior Graphic Designer Djordje Djordjevic and Senior Graphic Designer Madison O’Neil worked on the model to create all of its intricate details.
On March 5, the day the set goes on sale, Mike and Ashwin will be at LEGO Store Leicester Square in London to sign sets from 12.30pm until 1.30pm. It’s a great opportunity to meet two talented designers and make the set extra special with those signatures.
