i just discovered (where have i been?) that the always awesome LEGO corporation has purchased the rights to produce licensed "Lord of the Rings" products, which means minifigure Aragorn will soon be at a store near you (the lego site says summer 2012). how awesome is that? i'm going to need to go to the bank to see about taking out a small loan, as i will be wanting every set, from Shelob's lair to the prancing pony. my inner fantasy nerd has been busy doing a jig all morning since i saw this, and is now sitting down with some longbottom leaf.
