New Rings Trailer at Toy Fair
Staff Reporter

Toy Biz launched a new 5-minute Lord Of the Rings trailer at the Toy Fair in New York this week.

Although there was no dialogue—except battle cries, sweeping orchestra music accompanied fast paced scenes of:

  • Orcs, Trolls, and Gollum described as having big eyes, dark green skin, a bald head and dressed in rags.
  • Frodo and Samwise with the ring.
  • Chase scene with Liv Tyler (Arwen) pursued by Ringwraiths.
  • Wizard battle between Saruman and Gandalf with lightning, telekinesis, and someone getting slammed up against a wall.
  • Panoramic shots of armies on the walls, stoic, with dirty, bloodied armor.
  • Troops putting ladders up to walls being pushed back.
  • One on one battles in the forest with Strider.
  • Legalos knocking down a board and sliding down it rapidly firing arrows.
