    1. INTRODUCTION
    ******************************************************************************
    
    Welcome, welcome all my fine friends!  I don't know half of you as well as 
    I should like, and I like less than half of you half as much as you deserve!
    Welcome to my LEGO The Lord of the Rings walkthrough!  In this guide, you'll 
    find everything you could imagine to know about this game, including 
    walkthroughs of the story, how to find all the hidden collectibles, and info 
    on the story and the characters.
    
    This guide should serve you for the versions of the game for the 
    Playstation 3, the XBOX 360, the Wii, and the PC.
    
    ******************************************************************************
    2. FAQ
    ******************************************************************************
    
    Q: What is LEGO The Lord of the Rings?
    
    A: This is a LEGO-styled action game released in 2012 based around JRR 
     Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings series, and the Peter Jackson movies that 
     were made of the books as well.
    
    Q: What is the ESRB rating of this game?
    
    A: This game is rated E10+, with the added descriptors of Cartoon Violence 
     and Comic Mischief.
    
    Q: Would this game be good for my kids?
    
    A: If they enjoy Lord of the Rings, I'm sure they'd like this.  All violence 
     is done to LEGO bricks, so there's no blood.  Anything that was a little 
     too scary about the movies has been toned down.  As far as positive aspects 
     of the game towards kids, the gameplay is focused on exploration, discovery, 
     and critical thinking.  The co-operative gameplay style and forgiving 
     difficulty are also a plus.
    
    Q: Is this game voiced?
    
    A: Yes, the game features lines from the LOTR films, delivered as they 
     were in the movies by their original actors.  It also features some original 
     voice acting by non-LOTR actors on a smaller scale.
    
    Q: How many people can play?  Is there online play?
    
    A: Two, and no.
    
    Q: What's new about this game compared to the recent LEGO games?
    
    A: Like the recent LEGO Batman 2, there is a large open world to explore in 
     the form of Middle-earth.  You'll travel between the missions using this 
     open world hub, and it has many things to find in it as well.  As for 
     gameplay, characters will now have an inventory that they can use to 
     switch any items they're currently carrying.  For instance, Legolas can 
     switch between his bow and daggers.
    
    Q: Can I save in the middle of a Story Mission?
    
    A: You can.  At certain special points in missions, you'll see what are 
     called Save Statues.  They allow you to stop the mission and quit, then 
     start the game up again in the same spot.
    
    Q: I'm lost!  How do I find where I'm supposed to go?
    
    A: The next story mission is always marked by a faint blue stud trail on 
     the ground.  Follow it to where you need to go.  This can also be used in 
     conjunction with the map to track any other object that's marked.  Select 
     the marker on the map and select "Set Destination" and you'll get a trail 
     to it.
    
    Q: Can I get quickly around Middle-earth?
    
    A: Yes!  Whenever you discover a new Map Stone, you can fast travel to it 
     almost whenever you want to by going to the map and selecting it.  Certain 
     story points won't allow this in order to keep parties separated.
    
    Q: How can I pull open orange handles?  No one in the game can!
    
    A: There are two ways.  One is via an orc character.  Shagrat is a character 
     you get for free after Cirith Ungol.  The other way is via the item called 
     "Mithril Boxing Gloves", the design for which is found in Osgiliath.
    
    Q: How can I get rid of shiny mithril bricks blocking the path?
    
    A: You need some form of explosives.  You can either buy the Berserker orc, 
     who shows up in Helm's Deep after you complete that mission, or you can 
     forge Mithril Fireworks, the design for which is found in the hub just 
     outside Barad-dûr.
    
    Q: How can I change the time of day?
    
    A: After completing the Story, pick any Map Stone and select to travel to 
     it.  You'll be able to select a time of day as well.

    ================
    3C. Hints/Tips =
    ================
    
    My first advice is to go through the story before you seriously attempt to 
    collect objects.  The game kinda railroads you and cuts you off from 
    important characters while going through the story, so just relax and enjoy 
    and worry about collecting stuff later.
    
    Smash freakin' everything.  Lay waste to any LEGO objects in the area and 
    rack up that stud total.  Use Ground Pounds to demolish clusters of objects 
    quickly.
    
    Keep collecting studs.  Collecting a specified number in each mission will 
    give you "True Adventurer" status at the conclusion of it.  Once you hit the 
    threshold, you cannot lose it, no matter how low your studs gets afterwards.
    
    Explore everywhere.  Run into walls and behind them to look for any areas 
    you might be missing.  Big value studs are hidden in places where you can't 
    normally see them.
    
    Look out for visual cues to see how you can progress in a mission.  Look for 
    soft glows next to dirt piles where Sam can dig, for example, or floating 
    leaves for where elves are expected to jump.
    
    Collect Minikit Chests to assemble a little piece of Middle-earth.  While 
    you can't use these, they can be viewed in a special room in Rivendell.  For 
    completing a Minikit, you'll get 50,000 studs, except for the last one, 
    which gives you 500,000.
    
    There are many things around Middle-earth for you to find, including Mithril 
    Bricks, Side Quests, and Blacksmith Designs.  Keep an eye on the map for 
    things to look for and don't be discouraged if you can't get to them right 
    away.  You'll be able to later.

    "I was there two thousand years ago, when the strength of Men failed." 
     - Elrond
    
    True Adventurer at 30,000
    
    Characters: Elendil, Isildur, Elrond (Second Age)
    
    ---
    
    Walkthrough - 
    
    The Battle of Dagorlad -
     Well, this is quite the epic battle, isn't it?  Don't worry too much about 
     all the hullabaloo that's going on around you.  All the fighting is just 
     to box you into one area so you can fight other guys.  Orcs will pop into 
     the area and your objective is to defeat five orcs with banners on their 
     backs.  After you defeat those five, another few orcs standard-bearers will 
     show up, but these ones have shields, and you basically have to hammer the 
     Square button to knock their shields away, then beat them down.  Once 
     those three are down, Mount Doom will erupt, and a few evil looking spires 
     will pop out of the ground.  These are Morgul blocks.  Remember them for 
     later.  All you need to know for now is to slash them with Narsil, 
     Elendil's sword, then take out the orcs.
    
    The Dark Lord -
     Oh man.  That guy... is TALL.  So, all you really have to do to fight 
     Sauron is avoid his attacks and wait for him to slam and get his mace 
     stuck in the ground.  Hack at it with Narsil, and bust it three times.
    
    Climbing the Slopes -
     First, note the nearby statue.  That's a Save Statue, and allows you to 
     resume this mission from this spot and quit the game if you wish.  Head 
     to the right across the rocks.  Jump to the rails on the walls to hang 
     from them, and move along them, jumping up to the next ones.  Once you 
     climb up, hack through the Morgul blocks with Isildur, then head further 
     to the right.  Time your movement past the jets spewing out steam, then 
     continue through the Morgul blocks to the back.  Jump up onto the 
     rails and cross to the other side.
    
     Once you're safely on the far shore, hack up the Morgul blocks to drop a 
     wooden plank that you can climb.  Press Triangle to swap to Elrond.  At the 
     top, note the leaf-like icon.  That means a high jumper will be used here.  
     Have Elrond hop up to the ledge, then head right and push the rock into 
     the lava, allowing Isildur to cross.
    
     Continue further to the right, climbing up the rails, until you reach 
     the large gate.  Kill all the orcs here and eventually the doors will 
     open.  Once they open, you can head inside.
    
    The Cracks of Doom -
     Not much to do hear but knock down the orcs in your way and head for the 
     edge to the toss the Ring in!  Right?  RIGHT?

    Middle-earth Interlude: 
    
    New Characters: Frodo, Sam
    
    Welcome to Middle-earth, dear friends.  A huge open-world that you can, 
    mostly, freely explore.  If you wish to wander, you can do so, but you 
    won't be able to get too much done.  Still, it's nice to soak in some Shire 
    culture.  I also suggest hitting that glowing statue.  That's a Map Stone, 
    which will illuminate all hidden items in the area.  Each new area has one.
    
    So, to continue with the story, follow the Guide Studs (faint blue studs) 
    down the trail to Farmer Maggot's.
    
    =====================
    4B. The Black Rider =
    =====================
    
    "Trust a Brandybuck and a Took!" - Sam
    
    True Adventurer at 16,000
    
    Characters: Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin, Gandalf the Grey
    
    ---
    
    Walkthrough - 
    
    The Rider -
     Well, this is a new setup for LEGO games.  You're now in "sneak" mode, 
     where instead of jumping, pressing X will do a roll.  Your objective, if 
     that wasn't obvious, is to stay out of sight.  The Rider's "vision" is 
     represented by light shining through the branches, and you'll need to 
     repeatedly distract it to move forward.
    
     Head to the right and smash the first LEGO rock you see.  A smaller rock 
     will pop out of it.  Pick up the glowing rock and hold down Square to 
     target your throw.  Focus on the bird to the right and release to toss it.  
     Alternatively, while facing to the right, simply pressing Square will 
     likely get the job done.  The Rider will be distracted and move on, 
     allowing you to continue.
    
     At the next stopping point, switch to Sam and note the dirt pile on the 
     ground.  Hold Circle to have Sam dig up a rock, then toss it at the 
     boulder to roll it.  Continue on.  Now the Rider is moving back and forth.  
     Time your movement, hiding behind the center tree, and move on.
    
     Now you're a small stream, and there's a crawlspace near you.  Press 
     Circle to enter it and go up to the branches, then walk out onto them to 
     disturb the bird.  Head back down and continue.  As you cross the river, 
     you'll come across another dirt pile with a plant sticking out of it.  
     Again, with Sam, press Circle next to it to grow the plant.  This will 
     block the Rider's sight of you, allowing you to proceed.
    
    Orthanc -
     But enough of that!  It's time to see what Gandalf is up to visiting 
     Saruman.  Things aren't going well for the Grey Pilgrim.  Note that at this 
     point you have access to both Gandalf and the Hobbits.  If you have a 
     second player, they will be with the Hobbits while the other is with 
     Gandalf.  If playing alone, you can still play as the Hobbits, but you 
     won't be able to proceed until you finish dealing with Saruman.
    
     Repel Saruman's attack using Square, then, once you can move again, move 
     around and hop to avoid his attacks.  Once Saruman tires, hold Circle while 
     near him to lift him up.  Toss him into anything to weaken him.  You'll 
     have to do this three times.
    
    The Rider (Part 2) -
     Back to the boys, you'll need to smash some of the bushes and rocks 
     nearby to find three pieces of floor tile.  You can place these in your 
     inventory, then drop them on the tile floor near the boulder.  When all 
     three are placed, you can push the boulder over the edge and distract the 
     Rider again.
    
     Further on, you'll have to throw an apple twice more.  At the tree to 
     the right, and then the owl who sits on its branches.  Grow a plant at the 
     right edge and you'll be able to climb the rock behind you and over the 
     big log.
    
     A second water crossing.  Head towards the screen (to the foreground) to 
     find a LEGO jetty.  These can be fished at, but you need a pole.  Turns 
     out Merry has one, so switch to him and press Circle near the water to 
     start fishing.  Press the button prompts that come up.  You get a bonus if 
     you press the button as the string circle touches the button.  You'll pull 
     up a crab.  Fling it at the far side of the water to light the bridge on 
     fire.
    
     On the right-hand shore is another dig pile.  Dig it up to find another 
     rock.  Throw it at the hive of bees.  That'll learn him.  Head where the 
     web used to be, then head right to crawl through the hollow log.  You 
     have one more distraction to do, and it won't be ready unless you have 
     finished with Gandalf earlier.  Pick up the apple and toss it, then 
     follow the sign.
    
    The Chase -
     There's not much to this part except enjoy the run and try to avoid the 
     riders.

    Middle-earth Interlude: 
    
    Follow the stud trail into Bree.  Note that it's nighttime now.  Certain 
    collectibles can only be found at night, and one only at daytime.  I  
    wouldn't worry about that, for now, though.  Head east towards Bree and 
    into town.  Head for the Prancing Pony and you'll find some fellow just 
    standing there outside.  Talk to him.  Seems he wants a Mithril Trowel.  
    
    This is one of many Side Quests in the game, where you'll have to bring 
    a person an item and they'll reward you in return.  In this case, not only 
    is this guy offering you passage into the inn, but a Red Brick as well.  
    This is the only quest you need to complete as part of the story
    
    Head to the Blacksmith and pick up the Design in front of him, conveniently 
    enough, for the Mithril Trowel.  Head to the left and press Circle to 
    access his menu.  Pick the Trowel and spend your two Mithril Bricks to 
    get it made, then go back to the man and press Circle to give it to him.  
    You may purchase the Red Brick now if you wish, or just go inside the Inn.
    
    NOTE: Not only have you given the Trowel, but you still technically "have" 
    it in your Treasure Trove.  Hold down Circle and select the Trove and 
    pick the Trowel and whichever character you're controlling will equip it.  
    Through this, you can have anyone use it, as long as you're in Free Play or 
    exploring Middle-earth.
    
    You know have Aragorn leading the group.  Feeling mighty, yet?  Head 
    north out of town, east through the swamp, then up to Weathertop.

    "I don't think he knows about second breakfast, Pip." - Merry
    "What about elevensies?  Luncheon?  Afternoon tea?  Dinner?  Supper?  He 
     knows about them, doesn't he?" - Pippin
    "I wouldn't count on it." - Merry

    Walkthrough - 
    
    Hillside -
     Note that Pippin and Merry have Barrow-blades, and Sam decided he prefers 
     his trusty Frying Pan.  
    
    
     We have some hungry Hobbits, so let's make them a meal!  First, let's build 
     a fire.  You'll need to gather three clumps of LEGO wood.  They are found 
     in faintly glowing bushes, like the one near the back next to the tree, 
     the one in the foreground, and one up on a ledge above.  To get to that 
     last one, smash the rock above the crawlspace to find the tiles to assemble 
     the push floor so you can push the other rock out of the way.
    
     While you're up on the ledge, may as well shimmy along the rail to the 
     right.  Hit the bird's nest and you'll knock out an egg.  Note that it's 
     kinda glowing purple.  That means it's supposed to be combined with 
     something.  In this case, Sam's Frying Pan.  You can trade items by 
     tossing them with Circle if someone else picks up the egg.  Now, for two 
     more food items.  Dig near the plant to grow a tomato plant, then knock a 
     tomato off and place it on the Frying Pan, too.  Lastly, have Merry fish 
     to get a kipper, then put that on the Frying Pan.  Once you have all the 
     wood in place, have Sam press Circle next to the fire to light it with 
     his Tinderbox (Man, Sam can do EVERYTHING).  Place the whole meal on 
     the fire.
    
    Climb to the Top -
     The food sadly interrupted, we now need to get to the top of the hill.  
     Head left and smash up all the brush to find pieces to make a bridge.  Cross 
     it, then have Sam use the plant.  You'll get a couple rocks out of the 
     deal.  Toss them at the scrub to the left to clear a way to cross.  Another 
     plant awaits you at the end.  Use it to bounce up to the next ledge.  Use 
     the crawlspace there to head to find a pile of sticks.  Assemble them, 
     then light them with Sam to clear the way.
    
     Now, avoid that nasty-looking bramble patch and head up to the left.  Have 
     two characters hang from the two vines.  This will drop pieces that you 
     can assemble into a plank to cross the brambles.  Head up the slope and 
     chop a bush to make another piles of sticks that Sam can burn, which will 
     clear off the wall so you can climb up the rails.  Head down to the right 
     and dig up yet another plant.  Hop across it to the right, then head up 
     the stairs in the back.
    
    Amon Sul -
     So, you've got Sam and Frodo against a gaggle of Ringwraiths.  Fortunately, 
     their hearts don't seem into it, as they're just kinda stalking around 
     taking a few potshots.  Frodo is invisible in the "twilight world".  This 
     means he can interact with pieces that are lit up white.  What you need to 
     do is light five fires in the area: 
     1. In the center of the area.
     2. In the back.  Smash apart the wagon and assemble the pieces.
     3. On the right side of the area.  Have Frodo put the pieces together.
     4. In the back right, push the statue off the push floor, then have Frodo 
      put the pieces together.
     5. On the left side, dig up the plant, then smash the bush and assemble the 
      pieces.
     Careful, because if you put together a pile of sticks and leave it, it's 
     possible that the Ringwraiths will smash them apart.
    
     Once all five fires are lit, Aragorn shows up to help, and it's now 
     Aragorn and Sam with torches.  You've only got one fire left, but you'll 
     need torches to smack the Ringwraiths with fire.  Immediately hit the first 
     one with your lit torch.  Sam has a second, so build the nearby fire, light 
     up the torch, and hit another wraith.  You'll need to find three more 
     torches.  There are rocks on the ground.  Pick one up, and you'll see 
     arrows pointing to where to throw them.  The torches are here, so knock 
     one loose, pick it up, light it, and burn a wraith.  Repeat until they're 
     all gone.

    Frodo's been stabbed, and needs to get to Rivendell.  Take Arwen and cross 
    the water to the east.  Once the cutscene is complete and the Ringwraiths 
    get their bath, head up to Rivendell.  After the next cutscene, head down 
    to the pavilion where the Council of Elrond is taking place.  The Fellowship 
    of the Ring will now form.  Frodo will get a new weapon in "Sting", as well 
    as a mithril shirt which will protect him from damage.
    
    Head south from Rivendell and note that the path is leading you over water.  
    Switch to Legolas and aim his bow at the target on the rocks, then at the 
    next two that appear.  Hop across the rocks you've now moved into your path, 
    then follow the trail south to...

    Walkthrough - 
    
    Cliffside -
     You're going to have to deal with snow drifts as you cross the pass.  Short 
     characters: Gimli and the Hobbits, cannot cross without being carried by 
     a taller character, or by being tossed.  Press Circle to pick up a small 
     character, and then Square to toss them to another tall character.  So, you 
     can do either to get Gimli across the first drift.
    
     Gimli's special deal is that he can smash cracked blocks, such as the one 
     here.  Press Square in front of it, then head through the crawlspace.  
     Jump and press Square to slam the cracked block on the floor, then head 
     back up to join the rest of the Fellowship, who can now make it across 
     easily.  Now, switch back to a tall character, pick Gimli up again, and 
     throw him at the cracked block high on the wall.  You're now sufficiently 
     trained in cracking.  Good job.
    
     Climb up the rails to the left and push the rock into your path so everyone 
     can climb up.  Now, head right through another snow drift.  Have Gimli 
     bust up the block, go through the crawlspace, and smash the next block 
     to remove this snow drift as well.  Continue to the right, smashing more 
     cracked blocks to clear the way.  As you continue, you'll hit upon some 
     targets.  Use Legolas to shoot them down so you can proceed across the 
     rail.
    
     You now have a campsite here, and you'll have to get wood into the fire 
     pit.  The three crates in this area have the wood you need.  Have Sam 
     light it up, which will melt the ice around you, allowing you to assemble 
     a ballista.  Hop in with Triangle and press Square to fire it at the fare 
     end.  Cross the rope with Legolas, then fire arrows back to the left so 
     you can stick your arrows in the holes.  These create poles that let you 
     swing across, so just flip over to the left, then shoot the target near 
     the winch to move a rope so everyone can climb up.
    
     Grab Gimli and toss him at the cracked block, then head over the next 
     drift with Gimli so he can go up the crawlspace and smash some more.  
     This will allow everyone to cross, including Sam, who can assemble the 
     sticks and set fire to them to remove the ice.  Head to the right past the 
     rockfall.  Toss Gimli again to the other side of the gap.
    
     Another snow drift.  This time, bring Sam across and have him dig up the 
     crawlspace, then have Gimli go through and smash again.  While this 
     removes the drift behind you, you still need a way to move forward.  Bring 
     Sam down to the lower level and have him dig up the pieces of a plank.  
     Walk across it, head up the ledges and to another campsite.  Smash it up 
     to find three more pieces of wood, stack, and light them.  Then, dig up 
     the plant you uncovered.  Everyone should be able to cross now.
    
     Almost done!  Have Legolas shoot the targets to the right, then assemble 
     the cracked block, throw Gimli at it, and continue on down the path. 
    
    Westgate of Moria -
     Well, that didn't work so well.  Time to try the Moria route.  You'll need 
     to open the door first.  You'll need three characters to do so:
     Gimli: Go to the right, smash through the cracked block, and crawl 
      through.  Smash the tower to drop it so you can climb up, then head left 
      and smash the minecart to get pieces for a push panel.  Tap Circle 
      repeatedly next to it to push the tree around, then head further left and 
      smash the cracked block.  Assemble the pieces of the door.
     Legolas: Head to the left and shoot an arrow at the hole.  Hop up to the 
      ledges and flip across.  Continue up the rocks and to the right, flipping 
      across another pole.  At the end, push the rock off the ledge and 
      assemble the pieces.
     Sam: Dig up the area in front of the door.  Three pieces of wood again.  
      They are in two minecarts in the area, and in the small wooden dock.  
      Smash, collect, place, and light them.
    
    Watcher in the Water -
     Someone doesn't want you disturbing the water.  Your first objective is to 
     chop up some tentacles.  When one lunges and gets stuck, slash it up.  Do 
     this for four tentacles, then the Watcher's main body will appear.  First, 
     fling Gimli at the beast, then shoot it in the face.  Do this once more 
     to free Frodo.

    Walkthrough - 
    
    Balin's Tomb -
     You need to get Pippin out of the well.  First, smash the boxes on either 
     side of the well and assemble the pieces.  Next, go to the right, shoot 
     the target, then have Sam burn down the wood in the area to get a key to 
     open the chest.  Take the cog in there and place it next to the mechanism.  
     Lastly, go to the left and smash the cracked block, take the crank, and 
     place it.  Turn the crank.
    
    Drums in the Deep -
     You'll need to block the door in readiness to receive the orc horde.  First, 
     assemble the two spear parts on the sides.  Next, have Legolas shoot the 
     targets on either side holding the chains up.  Have two characters grab the 
     chains together to lower the bar.  Unfortunately, they will not hold, so 
     defeat any and all orcs that come through the doors.
    
    Cave Troll -
     After fighting several orcs, this guy will show up.  
    
     Now, assemble the little brown platform near you.  These are meant to lure 
     the Troll so it strikes that specific spot.  Stand on it and wait for him 
     to roar, which means he's going for that spot.  Move out of the way and 
     he'll bonk himself.  Now, switch to Legolas and head up to either side.  
     Smash a rock in order to uncover another platform for the Troll, then 
     bait him with it.  He'll get his chain stuck, so hop out onto it and shoot 
     him in the face.  Do the same thing for the other side of the room.
    
     Now, you've got a Hobbit on the Troll hacking away.  Once you bang on him 
     enough, he'll be stunned.  Switch to Legolas and shoot him.  Now, the 
     rubble you made earlier can be assembled into crawlspaces.  Take the 
     Hobbit to either side of the room and go up the crawlspace, stand in the 
     glowing circle, then press Circle to jump back on the Troll and bang on 
     him again.  You'll shoot him with another arrow.  Do the same for the other 
     side of the room and you'll be done.
    
    Halls of Durin -
     This first part is simple.  While Gandalf holds off the majority of the 
     orcs, you need to take out the stragglers that get in.  Take out three 
     groups of them.  Once he removes his shield, head to the left to find a 
     door.
    
     To get it open, everyone needs to work together.  Pippin now carries the 
     bucket he got from the tomb, so fill it up at the nearby water pool and 
     dump it on the fire.  Have Gandalf use his magic to pick up the purple 
     cog and place it on the wall.  Have Gimli smash the cracked block and 
     assemble the pieces, then push the mechanism into the wall.  Lastly, the 
     crank can be found beneath the barrel in the left corner.  Place it and 
     turn it, then head through the door.
    
    Bridge of Khazad-dûm -
     Run down the stairs.  After a short walk, the bridge will break, splitting 
     up the party.  First, toss Gimli to the left onto the cracked block.  This 
     will unearth a crawlspace.  Have Sam enter it, then cross over to the right 
     pillar and burn it down.  This will compress the pillars, allowing Legolas 
     to cross to the left and shoot down the targets, allowing the party to 
     proceed.
    
    The Balrog -
     This area is split, like back in "The Black Rider".  Gandalf's portion needs 
     to be finished first, and he isn't letting the Balrog get away without a 
     fight, so hold down X to dive down to the demon and hammer on Square to 
     slash it.  Press Circle when the prompt comes up to stab him.  You'll need 
     to do this three times, but the Balrog will start breathing fire at you 
     on the subsequent tries, so you'll have to hop left and right to avoid his 
     breath.
    
     Once the Balrog is out of the picture, we're back to the rest of the party.  
     Head up the stairs and have Legolas shoot the target, and then the arrow 
     into the hole so he can flip across it.  Have Gimli smash the cracked block 
     and escape.

    Legolas will get the Bow of the Galadhrim, which isn't much better than his 
    regular bow, but still, kinda nice.
    
    So, tap on Square to push yourself down the river.  You'll start the next 
    mission when you reach the end.

    Walkthrough - 
    
    Hillside -
     We have another party split here.  You have Frodo going solo with the 
     Ring on as he tries to avoid Boromir, and Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli 
     trying to catch up.  Let's focus on Frodo first.
    
     The idea here is similar to "The Black Rider".  You have to distract 
     Boromir so he runs off so you can proceed.  He can't see you, but if you 
     run into the piles of leaves he's standing in, he'll hear you.
    
     So, grab the nearby rock, head up the hill, and toss it at the targeted 
     spot.  Continue up the path and head into the crawlspace.  From here, 
     push the pillar off the edge, then assemble the pieces.  Climb the stairs 
     and punch a nearby rock to get a small rock to throw at the big stone 
     hand.  Assemble the pieces and walk above Boromir.  Punch the objects 
     on the pillars to knock them down in succession, then continue until 
     you see an obviously LEGO tree.  Smash it and the objects nearby and 
     assemble the catapult.  Punch it to fling the rock, then continue further 
     up the path.  Grab the rock and toss it above Boromir to move him 
     further.  Next, punch a rock to get a small rock, and toss it back to 
     the left to the obvious glowing white parts.  Assemble them, climb the 
     stairs, and push the pillar off the edge.  This next one is the last one.  
     Head into the crawlspace, punch a rock, grab the small rock and toss it 
     at the arch above Boromir.  This will allow you clearance to run up the 
     slope to the top, ending Frodo's portion.
    
     Now, let's deal with Aragorn and co.  A tree has fallen in your way out 
     of the landing.  You'll need a torch, and you can find one in the oars on 
     the ground.  Pick it up, light it at the fire, then set it down near the 
     tree to burn it out of your way.  Have Legolas go up the path, jump up to 
     the vine, and shoot down the target so you can assemble a springboard so 
     the other two can jump up the ledge.  Further ahead is a cracked block for 
     Gimli.
    
     In the next area, you'll have to move some pillars to advance.  Throw Gimli 
     at the cracked block, have Legolas shoot an arrow into the hole, then hop 
     up to the top and push the pillar off the edge.  Smash the cracked block 
     near the tile floor, then assemble the other pillar and arrange them so 
     you have steps up.
    
     In the next area, you'll need to ascend some more.  Smash all the cracked 
     blocks and assemble all the pieces.  Legolas will have to shoot another 
     arrow into a hole to flip up, then assemble a small pillar and push it off 
     so the rest can join you.
    
     Now it's time for Aragorn to shine.  Pick up Sting on the ground.  Note the 
     green haze that's coming off it.  That means that Aragorn can use it to 
     track with his super-ranger skills.  You'll see green footprints on the 
     ground.  Follow them to the nearby bush.  You'll know you're getting close 
     when Aragorn starts crawling.  The tracking ends when he starts digging at 
     the ground.
    
    Uruk-hai Attack -
     Sending Frodo away, the Terrific Trio engages the Uruk-hai.  Your objective 
     is to take down the ones hanging up in high places, and you can do that by 
     either shooting them or smashing the pillars supporting them.  Once you've 
     killed your share, more will come in, bursting through the log to the 
     south.
    
     Head south and engage more uruks.  Smash down the pillars and shoot the 
     ones that you can't smash down.  Once you've cleared the area, you'll be 
     able to continue to the east.  Take down more uruks.  Make sure you toss 
     Gimli at the cracked block so you can run up the ramp and engage the 
     remaining uruks.
    
    Departure of Boromir -
     The fight is now against Lurtz, the captain of this troop.  You'll have 
     Boromir, Merry, and Pippin to fight against him with.  Unfortunately, that 
     leaves you with no ranged combat, so you'll have to send a Hobbit up the 
     crawlspace to swat Lurtz to take off one heart.  For the next heart, just 
     smash the rocks in the way of the crawlspace and hit him again.  For the 
     last heart, you'll need to go to the right, assemble the pieces into a 
     springboard, then launch a Hobbit up to Lurtz.
    
     Now it's Aragorn and Boromir vs. Lurtz.  This part is simple.  Avoid 
     Lurtz's attacks, watch for when he throws his shield, and smack him when 
     he goes to retrieve it.  After a few hearts, he'll just fight you straight, 
     so take out the last of his hearts to finish.  If he grabs you, switch 
     characters and have the other hit him.

    Battle of the Peak -
     Another party split, and this time I'm going to separate them.  This is 
     Gandalf's portion where he gives the Balrog the business.  Head up the 
     slope and smash the ice around the colored blocks.  You'll want to assemble 
     these blocks using Gandalf's magic into stairs, or just stack a couple and 
     keep going.  Head further up to the tower, then build and smash your way 
     up the steps to the apex.
    
     To defeat the Balrog, avoid his attacks and wait for lightning to begin 
     striking.  Stand under the lightning's focus and press Circle to focus it 
     on the Balrog.  You'll need to hit him three times.  First on his wings, 
     then on his chest.  That will smite his ruin on the mountainside for sure.
    
    Circular Path -
     Now to something slightly less epic.  Gollum takes the fish out of the 
     nearby basket and runs off.  You'll need to fill that basket with six 
     fish in order to proceed.  This is done as follows:
     1. Directly in front of you.
     2. Is dislodged once Gandalf defeats the Balrog.
     3. Head to the right, stand under the glowing line and press Circle so 
      Sam uses his Elven Rope to pull himself up.  Smash the scrub, assemble 
      the ladder, and climb up to reach this fish.
     4. Head further right.  Note the really dark cavern.  Walk in with Frodo 
      and he'll pull out his phial.  You can have Sam follow and dig up the fish 
      inside.
     5. Head further right.  Have Sam plant near the tile floor, then push the 
      pillar to the other end so you can climb up the plant and hop across.  
      Now, if the fish weren't enough, you have to assemble a fire using three 
      pieces of wood.  One is behind the rocks on the left.  Another is in the 
      scrub at the foreground, and the last is beneath the scrub to the right.
      Light the fire and climb up to the fish.
     6. Keep going right.  Smash a pile of rocks and scrub to find a dig pile, 
      which will have pieces of a rope hook beneath.  Assemble them, then climb 
      up to the next ledge.  Have Sam plant to create a flower so Frodo can 
      join you on the ledge, then have Frodo go through the crawlspace and into 
      the dark cavern to get the last fish.
     With that done, keep going right and push the rock off the edge to find 
     that you're back at the beginning.  Throw all your fish into the basket to 
     create a new passage to the back.
    
    Gollum -
     Gollum is still not quite ready to play ball, yet.  The idea is to give 
     fish to him to occupy him, allowing Sam to use his rope on Gollum, and 
     for Frodo to smack him to knock off a heart.  That was the easy one.  Now 
     you'll need to find more fish, and the only way to do that is by fishing, 
     but you have no pole.
    
     So, let's make a pole.  First, head into the dark cave on the back wall 
     to find a fishing line.  Have Sam dig at the nearby dig pile to find a 
     gold hook for his rope.  Attach it to the wall, then pull down the rock 
     to find a fishing hook.  Combine the two, then go up the small path on 
     the left and have Sam rope himself up to the scrub at the ledge.  Smash 
     it to find the pole.  Combine all three, then fish at the dock.  Note that 
     this Fishing Pole will now go into your Treasure Trove, meaning you can 
     pull it out later in Middle-earth or during Free Play at any time, with 
     any person.  Anyway, once you get your fish, throw it at Gollum again, 
     then do it one more time.

    Walkthrough - 
    
    Marsh -
     Get ready to be annoyed because for some reason, Gollum will not shut up 
     about following him.  Gollum will hop through the water, leaving a 
     brown trail behind him.  This is the safe part of the bog to walk through, 
     so follow him.  In his second move, Gollum will move through water, and 
     fire will spring up behind him.  You'll need to put out this fire.  Have 
     Sam dig up the pile to find a Wooden Bucket, which you will save as a 
     Treasure.  Fill it with the blue water in the nearby pool and throw it on 
     the fire to continue.
    
     For the next fire, head left and dig up the plant, then climb up and light 
     the tree on fire so it fills the pool to the left.  Fill it, douse the 
     fire, and continue.  For the third fire, go to the right and step on the 
     bones to lift up another set of planks to the right.  Fill, then douse.
    
     For fire #4, go north to the island with a button on it.  Stand on it to 
     keep the water filled, then have the other character use the bucket on it.
     For fire #5, use the rope at a hook to the northwest, then cross, enter 
     the ribcage, and use the rope inside to raise up the bones.  Cross the 
     bones to reach the next pool of water.
    
     For fire #6 (and this is the last one), head to the hollowed out tree in 
     the back, enter the dark part of it with Frodo, and smash it to find pieces 
     for a hook that Sam can pull down to release the water into the pool.
    
    Wraiths with Wings -
     Now we have a sneak and peek section.  You'll have to hide when Gollum 
     tells you to, so have Sam hop into the stump, and have Frodo select his 
     Elven Cloak.  Wait for the Nazgûl to pass you, and then move on when 
     Gollum says to.  You'll do this about four times.  The fifth time, they 
     mix it up a bit.  You have to get inside the dark stump as Frodo so Sam 
     can join you in there.  
    
     The next area requires sneaking, which means no jumping.  Use Sam's rope 
     on the obvious hook hanging overhead and head up the little slope so you 
     drop onto the seesaw that lets Frodo head further right and smash up the 
     tree so both characters can proceed.  At the next stopover, burn the 
     tree, then hide as normal, then move on.  In the last area, use Sam's rope 
     to reveal pieces for a bridge, cross, then dig up the plant at the end, 
     hop up and escape.
    
    The Wilds -
     Suddenly, you're in control of Faramir, and it's time to dispose of some 
     oliphaunts, or mumakil, as the Haradrim call them.  Grab onto the hanging 
     rope of either mumakil and climb up to the carriage at the top.  Pick up 
     the rope and use it to climb to the very top, where you can knock out the 
     driver and scare the beast off.  Do the same with the other mumakil.

    You now have Faramir on your team, and he'll be taking you to Osgiliath.  
    There's just one problem.  There's a big red haze around Osgiliath.  It's 
    Sauron's gaze, and you cannot enter while his gaze is upon any area.  This 
    is the game's way of getting you to finish both paths before moving on.  
    This means we need to switch to the other team.
    
    So, with Aragorn's team, head to the marker to begin the next mission.

    Walkthrough - 
    
    Uruk Pyre -
     Begin by firing at the targets on the pyre, then assemble the shields into 
     stairs and have Gimli slam the block.  You'll now have to track the belt 
     to find what happened to Merry and Pippin.  You'll also find a second 
     tracking item, which leads to a rock.  Assemble the rope hook on the rock, 
     then go left and use Legolas to bring down the target and the rope, which 
     you can use on the rock to get a new tracking item.  Keep following 
     multiple tracking items to continue into Fangorn Forest.
    
    Fangorn Forest -
     Now we get to see what happened to Merry and Pippin.  Head to the right.  
     Smash up the rocks and go down the slope, then have both characters grab 
     the log further to the right to pull it down.  Assemble the pieces, climb 
     up, head to the right, and fight more orcs until some jump down and clear 
     away the crawlspace.  Crawl up, then clear away the brush between the 
     two big LEGO trees, and assemble it into rails.  Climb up the rails.
    
    Treebeard -
     Now you have the massive power of Treebeard on your side, and you can 
     literally walk all over the orcs in this area.  Head to the right and 
     back.  Use Circle to pick up a boulder and Square to throw it at the 
     back wall to knock it down so you can continue.  Pick Merry up and carry 
     him across the water.  Keep moving until a flaming log blocks your path.  
     Put Merry down, then switch to him so he can head up the crawlspace and 
     pull on the vine to release water onto the fire.  Continue up the path 
     to the rear to finish.

    Hall of the King -
     You need to draw Saruman from Théoden.  Beat up all the guards in the 
     area, then blast Grima with Gandalf's staff.  Hold Circle in front of 
     Théoden to remove the gray hearts from him.  Grima will push you away, so 
     beat up more guards and assemble a cage.  The idea is to now hit Grima 
     again so he starts running around and is eventually trapped in the cage.  
     Then, you're safe to focus on Théoden some more.  Do that twice more to 
     free the King.
    
    The Riddermark -
     There are two ways to take out Warg Riders.  Either you have to be on a 
     mount and attack them, or if you're on the ground, you'll latch onto 
     their sides and drag them off.  Either way, take out all the Wargs that 
     come at you.

    The Deeping Wall -
     The battle hasn't even started and already we're stuck down at the bottom 
     of the wall.  First, have Legolas shoot the target on the left, then 
     place the cogs on the wall.  Smash the cracked block, pick up the crank, 
     and attach it to the mechanism so you can turn it.  Hop up the boxes and 
     stairs, smash the cracked block near the top, and climb the rest of the 
     way up.
    
    The First Advance -
     You need to repel ladders that hit the wall.  Some ladders require Legolas 
     to shoot the orc at the top.  Some require Gimli to smash a cracked 
     block.  Others can just be slashed at.  Take out three ladders, then four 
     will come up.  Have Gimli go to the far right and go through the crawlspace 
     and push out a box to take down the far right ladder.  Next is five 
     ladders, taken out the same way.
    
    The Wall Breached -
     Smash the cracked block to your left and assemble the pieces, then hop up 
     with Legolas and smash the spear rack so you can assemble a hole for an 
     arrow.  Flip up to the left, push the rock off, then hop up and continue 
     to the left.  Smash the cracked block to remove the wall so you can move 
     on to the keep.
    
    The Hornburg - 
     In case you were wondering, yes, that was Peter Jackson throwing his 
     Academy Award at the orcs (he was in the same place in the movie).  Anyway, 
     throw Gimli to the left to break the ram.  Take out the orcs in the area, 
     then assemble a timber for the gate.  At this point, you'll switch to 
     Legolas.  Have him shoot down the ladders on the left, then smash up the 
     big ladder when it comes up.  Assemble the pieces into a tile floor, then 
     push the box down to the bottom.  Assemble the pieces and hop onto the 
     rope to climb up.

    Walkthrough - 
    
    Battle of Osgiliath -
     We have another split-up here.  This time, Frodo, Sam, and Gollum are in 
     the far part of the area, while Faramir is trapped in the near part, and 
     the two have to help each other move forward.
    
     Have Frodo head up the crawlspace, then switch to Faramir.  Fire an arrow 
     at the distant target (you'll be doing a lot of that, so get used to it), 
     then move to the right.  Switch to Frodo and hop across the pillar.  Drop 
     down and have Sam pull down the rope hook.  Switch back to Faramir and have 
     him use the pieces that just appeared to finish the tile floor so he can 
     arrange the pillars and climb up so he can shoot the target to open the 
     gate.  Have Frodo move inside the gate, then have Faramir shoot the *other* 
     target to open the far right gate so they all can get through.
    
     Now, you'll note an orc in the tower.  He has a sword that you'll need to 
     cut Gollum's bonds.  Go into the dark spot behind you with Frodo and smash 
     the objects so you can build a crawlspace to climb up.  Once the tower is 
     ruined, rope the hook above you and bounce up.  Switch back to Faramir.  
     Take out the orcs, including the one shooting at you from above, then 
     assemble the ladder, climb, and shoot the target in the tower.  Switch to 
     Sam, assemble the ladder, climb up and take the sword.  Hop down and press 
     Circle next to Gollum.  You now have full control of the little bugger, and 
     can climb up the LEGO wall marked with fish bones.
    
     Turn the crank at the top of the wall to open the gate for the Hobbitses, 
     then head down the stairs to the right.  Switch back to Faramir and head 
     down to the right.  Climb the stairs in the back and shoot the two targets 
     flanking the statue.  Assemble the pieces and push the statue to the left, 
     the fire at the orcs flinging barrels Donkey Kong-style.  Now, Gollum can 
     safely climb up the wall to the top and push the statue back down to the 
     left.  Have Sam clear out the rubble and plant a flower to bounce up to 
     the upper area, where he can burn away the wood so they can continue.
    
     Whoa, Nazgûl!  You'll have to use Faramir to repel the flying beast so the 
     other crew can proceed.  Switch back to him and head to the right, smashing 
     the wood so you can get a clear shot.  Once you fire on it, have Sam go 
     down the stairs and dig up the gears for the mechanism.  You still need the 
     crank though.  Fortunately, Gollum can fish without a pole, so smash the 
     rocks in front of the jetty and have him pull up a crank.  Head on 
     through.  Switch back to Faramir so he can head right.  Orcs will burst 
     through the wall, giving him a clear shot again.  Fire, then head to the 
     right, assembling the pieces for a ladder, then climbing up.  Head to the 
     right with Frodo, smash the pillars, and assemble them into stairs.  Climb 
     up for the last Nazgûl sighting.  Fire at him with Faramir.
    
    Battle of Isengard -
     Now we have two Ents versus Isengard.  If that sounds like fun to you, 
     then start wrecking the place.  Head to the right and eventually you'll 
     come to a gap that you'll need to knock a tower over to create a bridge.  
     Continue until you hit a wall of fire.  Grab the nearby water tower and 
     toss it at the fire, then continue back towards the dam.  Throw rocks at 
     the towers near the dam so you can climb up, then pull on the supports to 
     release it.

    Minas Morgul -
     You'll need to keep an eye on Frodo here, because he sometimes gets drawn 
     out to Minas Morgul.  Controlling him will keep that from happening.  
     Anyway, to the left of the statues flanking the road to Minas Morgul is a 
     dark cave.  Send Frodo in and have Sam follow so he can dig up the spot 
     and assemble the pieces underneath.  Push the statue to reveal a hook for 
     the rope and pull it down.  Assemble the next pieces and burn them.  The 
     pieces you have now can be used to put together some of the stairs.  That's 
     one part.  We need another part of the stairs.
    
     Head to the left in the foreground to find a wall that Gollum can crawl 
     up.  Smash the boulder of the edge so Sam can get up, dig up the pile, 
     assemble the pieces and use his rope to pull down the plants.  Cross the 
     gap with Frodo, enter the dark cave to find tiles for the push floor.  Push 
     the rock off the edge and assemble the pieces into the rest of the stairs, 
     then head on up.
    
    The Stairs -
     Climb up and head to the right, jumping over the gaps and using the rails 
     to shimmy over.  Climb up the stairs some more.  In this next area, enter 
     the darkness with Frodo to reveal the wall for Gollum to climb.  At the 
     top, Gollum can push off the rock onto the lower tile floor.  Smash the 
     objects in the area to find a dig spot, where you'll find the rest of the 
     pieces of the floor, then push the rock to the right so you can hop up the 
     next set of stairs.
    
     At the top, enter the dark cave to the right and smash open the box to find 
     a rock.  Throw it to the left to uncover a hook, then rope the rocks down 
     so you can cross using the rails, then continue up.  At the top, have 
     Gollum climb up and smash the webbings on the wall.  He can then assemble 
     a lever and jump onto it to drop the rock, clearing the way.  Head up the 
     crawlspace with Sam and dig up the plant.  You can now reach the top.
    
    The Tunnel -
     It's just Frodo and Gollum for the moment, and Frodo automatically has his 
     light out.  Have him lead the way into the cave, because there are a bunch 
     of little spiders that only his light can repel.  Continue deep into the 
     cave until you have to smash down some debris.  After that is a LEGO wall, 
     but first have Frodo get close to remove the spiders.  Once Gollum climbs, 
     have him push the box off the edge so Frodo can enter a crawlspace.  Head 
     up it, then continue with Frodo in the lead.
    
     Cut down any webs in your way and push forward.  Next, you'll need to 
     smash a bunch of bones at the end of the passage so you can assemble rails 
     to climb up.  Smash the rocks and bones in the area.  Assemble a little 
     hanging basket, then throw the small rocks into it.  Once it breaks the 
     web, you're free to continue.

    City of the Dead -
     Aragorn is now armed with Andúril, the Flame of the West, which allows him 
     to slice up Morgul blocks.
    
     Now, be careful to watch the mist in this area.  In areas where it flows 
     towards a circular center, walking into it will trap you and you'll have to 
     hammer on a button to get out.  Annoying.  Also annoying are spots where 
     the mist rises up, because ghosts will pop out of those and you'll have to 
     rely on Aragorn to beat them.
    
     So, head straight into the cave, avoiding those traps I warned you about.  
     The first important room you'll reach has Morgul blocks in it.  Hack them 
     all down and assemble a ramp to move on.  Continue until you reach an open 
     cavern.
    
     This area requires you to knock down the structure in the back.  Head to 
     the left and bust the cracked block, then send Gimli through the crawlspace 
     and have Legolas jump up to join him.  Shoot the hole to make a pole, 
     then flip up and push the box down so Gimli can construct a ladder and 
     climb up.  Make your way to the back by moving along the rail so you avoid 
     the mist, then have Gimli go to the back right and slam on the cracked 
     block to clear the way.
    
     The next important thing is further down the passage.  Two targets for 
     Legolas to shoot.  This clears the way to the next open cavern.  Go to the 
     left and have Gimli smash the crack, then assemble the rail and have 
     Legolas jump up.  Put an arrow in the hole and flip across to the right, 
     then push the box off the edge.  Drop down and have Aragorn smash the 
     Morgul blocks.  Continue on and have Gimli smash the crack at the end.
    
     This is the last open cavern.  Go to the right hand side and slash the 
     Morgul block beneath the statue so you can move it.  Send all three 
     characters up the ladder.  Cross the rope with Legolas, then use Aragorn 
     to toss Gimli across to him.  Gimli can now slam the crack up here and 
     assemble the crawlspace so he can head to the left side.  Push the spinner 
     on the other side, then head through the gate.
    
    King of the Dead -
     First, smash all four cracks.  Assemble the bricks and make sure Aragorn 
     is taking out the ghosts.  Hop onto your structure and hit the King as he 
     swoops down.  Once you hit him three times, he'll break your strcuture, so 
     build a new one and hit him three more times.  Lastly, build four different 
     structures and make sure you hop to the right one the King swoops towards 
     to hit him.

    Shelob - 
     Yes, for some reason, since you have to have a second player, you have the 
     help of Shagrat the orc in this fight against Shelob.  What you'll need to 
     do is collect the phial and Sting near Frodo.  Hold the phial to chase 
     away Shelob, then take out Sting and press Circle in the glowing circle 
     to attack.  Once you stab the spider, it will climb up on the wall, so 
     throw the phial at it to get it down, otherwise you'll be dealing with 
     little spiders and web shots.  Continue this tactic for three attacks and 
     you'll drive up Shelob.
    
    The Tower -
     Fling Sam's rope above you to drag down the light fixture, then throw the 
     nearby rock at the chain to drop it onto the stuck orc.  Head down 
     yourselves, then head into the darkness to the left with Frodo to find a 
     cog for the gate.  Place it, then head down the stairs.  Clean out all the 
     orcs down here, then head out the gate.
    
    Courtyard - 
     To make it out of here, you'll need to disguise yourselves as orcs in 
     armor.  Let's take all of the pieces in turn:
    
     Orc Armor #1: Head to the right, pick up a nearby small rock, and throw 
      it at the pipe above.  The orc beneath it will jump into the shower and 
      toss out his armor.
    
     Orc Helmet #1: Head over to the green banners to the right of the gate.  
      Burn them, then grab the nearby rope to burn the other parts.  Assemble 
      the pieces to make a catapult, then hop in so you launch yourself to 
      the right.  Use your rope to climb up, then head to the right and smash 
      the barrels to hit the orc on the stairs.  Take the helmet.
    
     Orc Helmet #2: Assemble the pieces near the end of the stairs so Frodo can 
      go up, then at the top, put on your Elven Cloak so you can sneak by the 
      orc so he won't shut the gate on you.  Climb up the nearby ladder, then 
      smash up the barrel and the rocks so you can find two pieces of a hammer.  
      You can use this hammer like Gimli would, so smash the floor so you can 
      take out the orc inside and his helmet.  Turn the crank to open the 
      gate.
    
     Orc Armor #2: Head further left and burn down the wood.  Head left and push 
      both boxes over the edge, then assemble all the pieces.  Push the platform 
      all the way to the right and smash the boarded up window to find the 
      armor.  Now, all you have to do is have both characters stand in front of 
      each guard and you're done.

    Walkthrough - 
    
    The Charge -
     DEEEAAAATTTTHHH!!!
    
    The Flying Beast -
     First, we need to unhorse the Witch-king, as it were.  Stay far away from 
     its attacks and wait until it slams its head into the ground and is 
     stunned.  Slash it three times, then wait for your opportunity again.  
     Keep it up until the beast is down.
    
    The Witch-King -
     Remember when you fought the Troll and you needed to stand on spots so it 
     would get stuck?  Same deal here.  Stand on the marked spot until the 
     Witch-king shrieks, then move and, once its mace is stuck, slash it.  You'll 
     need to make two more spots like that.  Build one to your right, and the 
     third is to the left beneath some scrub.  Once you use all three of those 
     spots, you'll be able to finish him off.
    
    Mumakil -
     And now for the big targets.  There are two types of mumakil to take down.  
     One type is easy.  They have anklets of Morgul blocks, so Aragorn just needs 
     to slash them, then he'll automatically hop up to the top and take out the 
     driver.  For the other kind, Legolas has to shoot arrows into the holes 
     on the side, then flip up to the top using the poles and ropes, then take 
     out the driver.  You have to take out two, then three.

    Walkthrough - 
    
    You'll be focusing on Trolls and Nazgûl here.  First, a Troll will attack.  
    Have Gimli smash the cracked block, then assemble it into a platform to 
    stand on so the Troll hits it.  Next, some catapults will fire.  Smash the 
    rocks, assemble them into a platform, then lure the Troll onto it for the 
    next hit.  Lastly, three Morgul blocks will be tossed.  Slash them up with 
    Andúril, assemble them, and get the last hit on that Troll.
    
    Now a Nazgûl will swoop in.  Keep away from it until it rears up, exposing 
    the target on its chest, then have Legolas fire at it.
    
    Now the battle will take you to the side of the gate.  A second Troll has 
    shown up to tango.  Head towards it and shoot the armor on each of its 
    shoulders with arrows.  It will smash the rocks to the left.  Assemble the 
    pieces and head through the crawlspace.  Press Circle in the glowing circle 
    to knock the Troll around.  Once it's stunned, have Legolas shoot it.
    
    You'll now head back to the center.  Another Nazgûl will show up.  Deal with 
    it the same way as before.  A third Troll will attack.  All you can do 
    with this Troll is wait until it tires itself, then have Aragorn attack it 
    to remove its armor.  Once both pieces are gone, it will run off to the 
    side.
    
    In this area, assemble the pieces and fire arrows into the holes so Legolas 
    can flip up to the ledge, then uncover the platform, bait the Troll into 
    hitting it, then jump out and shoot him.

    Walkthrough - 
    
    The Slope -
     So, we've got problems.  For one, Frodo is so weary he can't jump.  For 
     another, we're on an active volcano.  So, head to the right and smash the 
     boxes to find pieces for a ramp.  Head right, hop onto the island in the 
     middle of the lava, and rope the rocks down so Frodo can cross.  Next, 
     position Frodo on the little rock near the rails, then hop up as Sam and 
     rope to the upper ledge.  Stand on the rock near the lava jet to make it 
     go down and Frodo's go up.  Remember this, as you'll be doing it a few 
     times as you go through.
    
     Head into the darkness with Frodo and push the rock into the lava.  Dig 
     up the spot with Sam to find a rock, then throw it at the rock to the 
     right to fully block the flow.  Continue to the right, past the jets in 
     the walls, then leap onto the rails to pull off some rocks.  Time your 
     movements so Frodo can get across, then proceed further right.
    
     Head into the darkness beneath the colored blocks.  Make sure Sam stays 
     with you as you go through.  On the other side, fling Sam's rope at the 
     hook to pull the rocks down to cross.  Now you have the two lava holes 
     balance thing again.  Have Sam jump on the left one so Frodo can go up on 
     the right.  Unfortunately, Frodo can't go forward anymore, and Sam can't 
     go with him, so head back to the left and smash the rocks to uncover a 
     plank.  Drop Frodo from the plank onto the left-hand rock to raise Sam up.  
     Sam can cross the gap to the right, dig up the pieces, and assemble them 
     into a bridge for Frodo.
    
     Use the rope again to pull down the rocks.  You'll find another lava 
     balance.  Put Frodo on the right and have Sam rope up to the left.  Once 
     Frodo gets off on solid ground, smash up the rocks to put together a pillar 
     on the tiles.  Push Frodo to the right, then have him go through the dark 
     cave on the back wall and smash the rocks to block the lava.  Both of you 
     can now go through the crawlspace to the top.
    
     Gollum wants a piece of you, now.  Alternate between Frodo and Sam 
     throwing rocks at him.  Knock him in the head five times to move on.
    
    The Cracks of Doom -
     First, Frodo needs to shake off Gollum.  Have Sam smack Gollum to knock a 
     heart off.  Gollum will knock you down to a lower level.  Assemble the 
     pieces, then climb back up using the rails.
    
     After the next hit, Gollum will knock you down to a different area.  
     Assemble the pieces and use the rope to go to the right, then assemble 
     again and climb out.  Hit Gollum one more time, then have Frodo assemble 
     the blocks to let Sam climb back out, and hit Gollum one last time.
    
    The End of All Things -
     Run.

    ******************************************************************************
    5. FREE PLAY RUNTHROUGHS
    ******************************************************************************
    
    Okay, in this section we go mission by mission and list all fourteen 
    objects you can pick up during the Free Play run.  Like in so many past 
    LEGO games, how Free Play works is that you select your characters, and 
    then you're given several more so you can access all the secrets.
    
    Also, if you don't get the character you need in the selection that is 
    picked for you, you can always hold down Triangle and access the full 
    menu whenever you want.  Well, ALMOST whenever you want.  There are certain 
    times in certain missions where you're locked in to a certain character and 
    can't switch, such as when Frodo has the Ring on, for example.
    
    Anyway, you can select Free Play of any completed mission from anywhere on 
    the map.  You don't have to walk up to the mission's banner in the world.  
    Just bring up the map, find the banner on it, then select it.
    
    So, with each item, I may note that you need something in particular.  
    Here's a list of what they mean, when they're not specific characters:
    
    Free Play - You'll need to do it on Free Play, most likely because you'll 
     have the characters already in your stable, just not access to them yet, 
     or you'll need to be able to hot switch on the fly.
    
    Spade - You need either Sam, or the Mithril Trowel forged.
    
    Arrows - You'll need Legolas or another archer character.  Most likely 
     Legolas will be the best bet, as some acrobatics might be required as well.
    
    Rope - You'll need either Sam's rope or a rope item, like the Mithril Rope.
    
    Phial - You'll need Frodo's phial he got from Galadriel.
    
    Strength - You'll need an orc character (such as Shagrat, whom you get for 
     free), or the Mithril Boxing Gloves.
    
    Explosives - You'll need either Mithril Fireworks or the Berserker character.
    
    ==============
    5A. Prologue =
    ==============
    
    Minikit #1 - (Spade) During the battle, go to the back left corner of 
     the field and dig up this minikit.
    
    Minikit #2 - (Arrows) During the battle, in the far distance are three 
     siege towers.  Shoot the targets on them.
    
    Treasure #1 *Elven Sword* - (Explosives) While fighting Sauron, go to the 
     back left and blast open the mithril rocks to find this.
    
    Treasure #2 *Magma Armor* - (Spade) At the beginning of the climb up the 
     slopes, smash the nearby lava flow rock and find a dig pile under it.  Dig 
     it up with Sam.
    
    Minikit #3 - (Gimli, Gollum) In the very beginning of the climb up the 
     slopes, throw Gimli at the cracked block on the wall to enter a new area.  
     In this sauna, you'll need to climb up to the top.  Use a rope in the 
     back to reach the second ledge, then throw Gimli across to the right.  Have 
     Gollum cross and climb up, then switch to a Narsil wielder (like Elendil) 
     and smack the Morgul block.  Now, drop down to the water and pick up the 
     minikit.
    
    Treasure #3 *Shimmering Armor* - (Strength) In the same area as Minikit #3, 
     head to the far right and pull open the orange handle.
    
    Blacksmith Design *Mithril Shockwave Axe* - (Gimli) In the same area as 
     Minikit #3, go behind the cabinet that held the treasure and smash open the 
     wall to find the design.
    
    Minikit #4 - (Gimli) Destroy five statues of Sauron.  They are in the 
     following places:
     1. In the same area as Minikit #3, at the back of the pool
     2. In the main path, before the river of fire that you shimmy across.
     3. Before the first marked "elf jump" point.
     4 and 5. Flanking the gate to the Cracks of Doom at the end.
    
    Minikit #5 - (Gimli, Legolas) After crossing the second river of fire, 
     you'll note some flame jets blasting out of the wall.  Throw Gimli at the 
     cracked block on the left and assemble the pieces to block one, then have 
     Legolas shoot the target above the righthand one.  This will give you pieces 
     for the minikit.
    
    Minikit #6 - (Rope) At the third river of fire (which you have shimmy 
     across) stand on the left-hand bank and toss the rope at the little 
     raft.
    
    Minikit #7 - (Phial) After the third river of fire, some orcs will jump out 
     of a dark passage.  Go in with a phial to find this one.
    
    Minikit #8 - After pushing the rock off into the fourth river of fire, 
     climb up with Isildur and smack the Morgul rocks blocking the back passage 
     to this minikit.
    
    Minikit #9 - (Explosives) Just before the gate to the Cracks of Doom, blast 
     the mithril cage to the left, then crawl through the crawlspace.
    
    Minikit #10 - (Arrows) At the Cracks of Doom, there's a target just above 
     the gate that closed.  Shoot it to drop the minikit.
    
    =====================
    5B. The Black Rider =
    =====================
    
    Minikit #1 - (Strength) At the very beginning, pull open the orange handle 
     on the rock and drop down to a new cave.  There's a mole down here that 
     you'll have to corral into a certain spot.  First, light the fire to the 
     left to drop a tree on one hole, then shoot an arrow at the hanging rocks 
     over the second hole.  Next, go to the back and hang on the rope to lower 
     a rock so you can jump up to the right with Legolas, head left, then 
     switch to Gimli and smash the cracked block over the third hole.  For the 
     fourth hole, head to the right with Frodo and enter the dark cave.  This 
     will scare the mole to the center hole and knock out the minikit.
    
    Minikit #2 - (Strength) This is also down in the cave behind the orange 
     handle, only it's quite visible in the upper left, and you'll likely trip 
     over it in the process.
    
    Minikit #3 - This one is easily spotted behind a tree in the first area.
    
    Treasure #1 *Ferryman's Hat* - (Free Play) Just before crossing the first 
     patch of water, head to the foreground to find a path that curves down in 
     front.  At the end, smash the Morgul blocks and assemble a Ringwraith 
     scarecrow.
    
    Minikit #4 - (Explosives) At the first water crossing is a mithril rock.  
     Blast it.
    
    Treasure #2 *Soup Pot* - (Phial) Just after the first water crossing is a 
     small dark cave.  The pot's inside, and you'll need Frodo's phial to get 
     in.
    
    Minikit #5 - This one can be a pain in the butt.  It's during the fight 
     with Saruman.  What you need to do is throw him into the window with the 
     lock on it.  Unfortunately, that window can be tough to target, and it may 
     take more than one shot to clear away the other objects in the area.
    
    Minikit #6 - (Arrows) There are five nests in the trees to fire at in the 
     second part of the forest.  They start at the very beginning of the second 
     area, just past the rolling rock, and are spaced rather evenly towards 
     the end.
    
    Minikit #7 - (Gimli) Just before the second water crossing, you'll find a
     cracked block on a fallen tree.  Smash it down.
    
    Blacksmith Design *Mithril Music Horn* - (Rope) At the second water 
     crossing, smash down the bridge parts and head to the back.  Use the rope on 
     the rock to the left.
    
    Treasure #3 *Mushroom Crown* - (Rope, Aragorn) At the second water crossing, 
     smash down the bridge parts and head to the back.  Use the rope at the back 
     water wall to pull down an item that Aragorn can use to track.  Follow it 
     out of the water to the left, then you'll dig up a second item.  Follow 
     it to the right to the crown itself.  You'll have to move the Nazgûl away 
     from the hollowed log to get to it.
    
    Minikit #8 - (Gollum) In the hollowed log is a LEGO wall.  Climb up it with 
     Gollum.
    
    Minikit #9 - After you go through the hollow log, walk in front of it, 
     smash the bush, and dig up the minikit.
    
    Minikit #10 - There is a minikit on the right side of the road during the 
     chase.  Just hug the right side and you should grab it.
    
    ================
    5C. Weathertop =
    ================
    
    Minikit #1 - (Phial) In the first area, walk into the dark passage near 
     where Frodo's sleeping.
    
    Minikit #2 - (Rope) In the first area, flip a rope up to gold hook on the 
     rock high above.
    
    Treasure #1 *Rubber Duck* - (Arrows) In the first area, shoot the target 
     near the water to scare this up.
    
    Minikit #3 - (Arrows) In the first area, shoot an arrow into the hole in 
     the back, then flip up to the minikit.
    
    Blacksmith Design *Mithril Music Boots* - (Phial) As soon as you enter the 
     second area, go back into the dark tunnel to find this.
    
    Minikit #4 - There are three purple plants along the trip up to Amon Sul.  
     1. Just past the rocks you knock down with other rocks.
     2. After bouncing over the purple flower suspended over the briar patch.
     3. Just before the stairs to the top.
    
    Minikit #5 - (High Jump) In the second area, after Sam builds a bouncy 
     plant, hop off it onto the rails to the right, and keep moving right to 
     find this one.
    
    Minikit #6 - (Strength) Just before jumping over the briar patch in the 
     second area is an orange handle on the rock wall.  Pull it open.
    
    Minikit #7 - (Gimli) Before going up the stairs to the third area, use 
     Gimli to knock down a cracked block to the right.
    
    Treasure #2 *Quill* - (Gimli, Narsil, Aragorn) Before going up the stairs 
     to the third area, use Gimli to knock down a cracked block to the right, 
     then smash down the Morgul blocks to find a tracking item.  Use Aragorn 
     to track it to the left to find another item, then track back to the 
     right to find the quill.
    
    Treasure #3 *Sun Hat* - (Gimli) At Amon Sul, go to the right, switch to 
     Gimli, and knock down the cracked block, and the next one behind it.  Take 
     the hat.
    
    Minikit #8 - (Arrows) At Amon Sul, find three tiny targets in the area 
     for Legolas to shoot down.
    
    Minikit #9 - (Strength) At Amon Sul, wrench open the orange handle chest 
     in the back left. 
    
    Minikit #10 - (Explosives) At Amon Sul, blast the silver pillar on the left, 
     then assemble the pump with Frodo.  Switch back and turn the crank to get 
     the minikit.
    
    ===========================
    5D. The Pass of Caradhras =
    ===========================
    
    Minikit #1 - There are five skeletons on the cliffside wearing bronze 
     helmets.  Smash each of them:
     1. Just left of the starting point.
     2. Small cave just past the first snow drift where you push a rock.
     3. In the back of the first campsite.
     4. To the right of same campsite, up the slanted rope, at the end of the 
      ledge.
     5. Through the first crawlspace after the rockfall.
    
    Minikit #2 - There are four pennants with flags on the mountainside.  Smash 
     each of them:
     1. After the second snow drift.
     2. After the first campsite, go left past the cracked block on the wall.
     3. Halfway through the rockfall
     4. After the rockfall, go through the first crawlspace and smash the 
      cracked block, then have Sam dig up the planks and head to the right.
    
    Minikit #3 - (Free Play) To the right of the first campsite, after Legolas 
     goes up the rope to the right, switch to Gimli and slam the cracked block.  
     Next, assemble the snowman and have Legolas shoot it.
    
    Minikit #4 - (Explosives) Just at the end of the rockfall are several mithril 
     boulders stacked against the wall.  Knock enough down to get into the little 
     cave.
    
    Minikit #5 - (Strength) Past the rockfall, you should see a rope trail 
     hanging down.  Rope up to it, then pull apart the orange handled chest at 
     the top.
    
    Minikit #6 - (Explosives) Once you go through the first crawlspace after the 
     rockfall, you should see some mithril boards on a cave entrance.  Blast them 
     away, then walk into the cave with a Phial.
    
    Blacksmith Design *Mithril Cluster Bow* - After the rockfall, there's a point 
     where you assemble some planks.  After you go right across the gap, instead 
     of going up, go towards the screen to find the design on a ledge.
    
    Treasure #1 *Bill's Riding Crop* - (Free Play) At the Moria gate, smash the 
     Morgul blocks with Narsil to find both Bill and his riding crop behind it.
    
    Minikit #7 - (Free Play) Once you free Bill (see above), slowly walk him to 
     the right along the stud trail to find the minikit.
    
    Treasure #2 *Luminous Stone* - (Explosives) At the Moria gate, blast the 
     mithril rock on the left side and take the tracking item beneath it.  Follow 
     the trail through three tracking items to the right to find this.
    
    Minikit #8 - Time to disturb the water.  Under three large rocks are smaller 
     throwable rocks.  Throw each of these at the three green bottles floating 
     in the water.
    
    Minikit #9 - (Gollum) Climb up the left side with Legolas.  Halfway up, 
     switch to Frodo and go inside the cave with his Phial.  In the cave, use 
     Gollum to climb up the wall, then switch to Sam and light the fire, freeing 
     the troll.  It wants a fish, so hop down and smash the ice with Gimli to 
     free up an area, then fish it up and bring it to the troll.
    
    Treasure #3 *Ice Lolly* - (Free Play) Go to the same cave as Minikit #9.  
     From the troll, go towards the screen and destroy several rocks to find a 
     dig spot.  Dig up the lolly.
    
    Minikit #10 - (Rope) While fighting the Watcher, use a Rope on the obvious 
     sparkling line at the right edge, climb up, and smash the plant to find 
     this one.
    
    ========================
    5E. The Mines of Moria =
    ========================
    
    Minikit #1 - (Strength) In the first part, pull on the orange handled chest 
     on the right side.
    
    Minikit #2 - (Strength) You need to find three Dwarven statues in Balin's 
     Tomb.  They are behind orange handles that need to be pulled.  The first 
     is in the first area on the left side.  The latter two are when you're 
     defending the door, on the upper ledges on either side.
    
    Blacksmith Design *Mithril Headdress* - While the orcs are pounding on the 
     door, head to the right and into a small alcove to find this.
    
    Minikit #3 - (Explosives) You must destroy three sets of Morgul bricks.  
     They're all in the Halls of Durin after the Balrog first roars.  The first 
     is on the right.  The second is past the mithril pillar that you need to 
     blast down.  The third is off to the left.
    
    Minikit #4 - (Explosives) In the Halls of Durin, blast down the mithril 
     pillar, then behind it, use a rope on a golden hook on the ground.
    
    Treasure #1 *House Key* - (Strength, Explosives) In the Halls of Durin, blast 
     down the mithril pillar, then behind it, pull over the cart to knock this 
     out of it.
    
    Minikit #5 - (Explosives) In the same area as Minikit #4, bust up the mine 
     carts and assemble the pieces to the wall.  Now, the top of the wall is 
     still kinda broken, so you need to aim Gollum juuust right up the middle 
     to get to the minikit.  Keep trying, it can be done.
    
    Treasure #2 *Moria Orc's Helmet* - (Free Play) At the first part of the 
     bridge (the stairs), shoot a target near the entrance to drop this.
    
    Minikit #6 - (Explosives) As you go down the stairs to the bridge, you'll 
     see a wall of mithril rocks.  Blast them away and enter a new room.  Shoot 
     the targets on the back wall twice each to drop this minikit.
    
    Minikit #7 - (Explosives) In the same area as Minikit #6, go up to the organ 
     and stand in front of it to get the wheels moving.  As the lit up set of 
     lights reaches the bottom step on the switch.  Do this for all three colors, 
     and then three sets of the three.  Although I've never seen it, this is 
     apparently a reference to "The Goonies".
    
    Minikit #8 - At the broken pillar area, after you fling Gimli to the left, 
     go down the crawlspace, and then walk around behind the pillar.
    
    Treasure #3 *Artist's Hat* - At the far end of the bridge, there's a crane.  
     Have Legolas grab the crane to pull up a box with this inside it.  If 
     you're on Free Play, you'll have to wait until Gandalf is finished so you 
     have a second character to grab the item.
    
    Minikit #9 - (Free Play) Once you start the last area, have Frodo use his 
     phial inside a small dark cave before you go up the stairs.
    
    Minikit #10 - At the exit gate, look up and have Legolas shoot at two targets 
     to drop the pieces of the minikit.
    
    ==============
    5F. Amon Hen =
    ==============
    
    Minikit #1 - (Mithril Bow) There are six statues that need to be hit, and 
     since you can't switch Frodo, you'll need to forge a bow of some kind in 
     order to get them all.
     1. Frodo - First set of stairs, an obvious target.
     2. Frodo - Near the catapult, shoot the target
     3. Frodo - While on the ledge to the right of the overhanging gate that 
      knocks away Boromir.
     4. Aragorn - At the water landing on the far left.
     5. Aragorn - Partway up the path, just past the fallen tree.
     6. Aragorn - At the end of the path, amongs the ruins.
    
    Minikit #2 - In Frodo's path, there's a spot where you throw a rock at a 
     stone hand, then create stairs from its fingers.  Once that's done, smash 
     the remaining hand to find a minikit behind it.
    
    Minikit #3 - (Mithril Bow) Again, you'll need to forge a bow for Frodo to 
     use.  After the catapult, further up the path is a target.  Shoot it to 
     roll the boulder back down to the catapult.  Fire it again to release this 
     minikit.
    
    Treasure #1 *Stop Wand* - (Rope, Axe) You need both some kind of rope and an 
     axe.  For example, forge a Mithril Rope and a Mithril Shockwave Axe.  
     Anyway, after you chase off Boromir for the last time in Frodo's path, drop 
     down to where he stood and use the rope above you.  You'll climb up to the 
     ledge above.  Smash that with the axe to drop the wand.
    
    Minikit #4 - (Strength) Smash four Morgul rocks in Aragorn's path.
     1. Near the water landing.
     2. Through the orange handle at the far left of the water landing.

     4. At the end of Aragorn's path, amongst the ruins.
    
    Minikit #5 - (Free Play) At the water landing, first use a rope to pull down 
     the statue on the left, then switch to a wizard and magic the pieces 
     together in the correct order to match the right-hand statue.
    
    Treasure #2 *Arrow Helmet* - (Strength) You need to complete another cooking 
     puzzle like you did back at Weathertop.  First, head to the left, pull down 
     the orange handle, and you'll find a ghost sitting on a chest.  He's who 
     you need to make the meal for.  Dig near the ghost to find a fish, then 
     dig up in the upper right corner to find an egg, and last, use your rope 
     on the gold hook near the path up the hill to find the tomato.  Mix them 
     together, then put them on the spot next to the fire.  The ghost will leave 
     and you can get the helmet.
    
    Minikit #6 - While pushing the pillars around on the block pushing area, 
     push them to the back right corner and hop Legolas up to the hole in the 
     rock to find this one.
    
    Minikit #7 - (Free Play) When you reach the top of the hillside with 
     Aragorn, you'll see a structure with a dark cave beneath it.  Walk in with 
     Frodo and smash the rock inside.
    
    Treasure #3 *Uruk Sword* - (Explosives) Once the uruk-hai attack, go through 
     the fallen tree, then look left and blow up the mithril pillars to knock 
     them down.  The item is behind it.
    
    Minikit #8 - (Free Play) In the third area of the uruk-hai attack, dig 
     near the back left corner to grow a plant that will reach to the minikit.
    
    Minikit #9 - (Explosives) In the third area of the uruk-hai attack, go down 
     and to the right to find a path leading to the mithril gate.  Blast it down 
     and head inside.  Once inside, rope up to the next area, then shoot the 
     target.  Continue up the tower.  Jump up to the top as Legolas and use Sam 
     to burn the brush blocking the crawlspace.  Enter and hop up on the 
     mushroom to the minikit.
    
    Minikit #10 - (Free Play) In the final area with Lurtz, use a rope to pull 
     down a gold hook to find a target.  This is one of six targets in the 
     immediate area that need to be shot.
    
    Blacksmith Design *Mithril Rope* - Next to Lurtz on his elevated platform.  
     You can get there easily with a hobbit.
    
    ===================
    5G. Taming Gollum =
    ===================
    
    Minikit #1 - On the peak, assemble the stairway perfectly, as marked on the 
     wall.

     rocks on your right to uncover a crawlspace.  Go through.
    
    Blacksmith Design *Mithril Carrot Bow* - (Free Play) Just before climbing the

     off and to the left to drop onto a ledge with an orange handle.  Pull it 
     to open the door.  Smack the snowman to get his head.
    
    Minikit #3 - (Free Play) Halfway up the tower on the peak, smash the Morgul 
     block out to the left, then plant in the dirt pile to bounce up to the 
     minikit.

     1. Just left of where Sam and Frodo start.
     2. Further right of the starting point.
     3. Further right, near some Morgul blocks.
     4. At the end of the path as it circles around.

     where Sam can attach his rope to a rock.

     on them.  Shoot them both.

     the pillar and jumping to the upper area, use Gimli on the nearby cracked 
     block.

     block on the wall.  Chuck Gimli at it.
    
    Minikit #9 - Near the Save Statue during the Gollum fight are three clumps 
     of rocks.  Smash all of them and put the pieces together.
    
    Minikit #10 - (Explosives) During the Gollum fight, enter the back cave with 
     Frodo to find some mithril rocks.  Blow them up with explosives and head 
     into a new cave.  This cave requires Gollum to climb on the walls and reach 
     the crank on the left and put it on the mechanism on the right.  It requires 
     the other character to move some panels to rotate the walls so Gollum can 
     reach them.  It's a bit maddening, and takes some practice.
    
    Treasure #3 *Fishing Rod* - You get this item as a matter of going through 
     the story.
    
    ======================
    5H. The Dead Marshes =
    ======================
    
    Minikit #1 - (Free Play) Near the starting point, smash the cracked block 
     with Gimli, put the pieces down as a jetty, then fish.  Take the fish and

     it to get the minikit.
    
    Minikit #2 - (Free Play) There are five cracked blocks that, when struck, 
     cough up skeletons from the bog.
     1. Next to the beginning of the area, just to the right of your starting 
      point. 
     2. The second island (the first fire) in the upper-left corner.
     3. The bottom right area, where you fill up for the third fire.
     4. After the second fire, Gollum will double back through the path, which 
      passes close to this one.
     5. This one is close to the large ribcage you walk through.
    
    Treasure #1 *Wooden Bucket* - You find this one going through the area 
     normally.
    
    Minikit #3 - Once you're at the third fire, look down south to see a little 
     patch of LEGO weeds floating in the water.  Jump on it and more will appear 
     out of the water.  Follow the path and pull the rope hook at the end to 
     get this minikit.
    
    Minikit #4 - (Strength) In the western area with the large ribcage is a 
     rock with an orange handle.  Open it and a path to a minikit will be made.
    
    Minikit #5 - (Free Play) You should see the set of Morgul blocks when you 
     go to get some more water, so smash them down.  This will cause a boat to 
     appear, and you'll need to find two bones and combine them to make a 
     steering wheel.  Once you do that, take it back to the ghost to get the 
     minikit.

     target on a LEGO tree in the background.

     you can see another tree with a target in the background.  This one will make 
     three more targets appear in the water.  Shoot them.
    
    Treasure #3 *Toy Snake* - (Explosives) In the second sneaking section, 
     look to the front to find a mithril barrel.  Blast it to find the snake.
    
    Minikit #8 - (Strength) At the end of the Nazgûl chase, smash the bushes in 
     front of an orange handle on the wall, then pull it open and run in to get 
     the minikit.
    
    Blacksmith Design *Mithril Stud Mallet* - (Free Play) Fish off the jetty near 
     Minikit #8 and take the key you get to the yellow lock off to the left.

     left of the area and find a dig spot.
    
    Minikit #10 - In the fight with the Haradrim, there are five targets spread 
     throughout the area, but they're all on the sides, and they all pop up and 
     down really fast, so be careful and make Faramir's shots count.

     go to the banner that's dug into a mithril rock and blow it up.
    
    Minikit #2 - (Free Play) In the back of the first area are some rather

     assemble them using Gandalf so you can reach the vine and the minikit.

     ballista and shoot up the targets that pop up and hang on the wires.  Once 
     you shoot most of them (you may not have to shoot all of them), you'll get 
     a minikit.
    
    Blacksmith Design *Mithril Fishing Rod* - (Strength) In the forest after 
     clearing the first set of rubble, pull open the orange handle to enter a new 
     cave.  In the foreground is a chest.  Smack it open to get the design.

     on the right to get this.
    
    Minikit #8 - (Free Play) Just after you get Treebeard, head to the left 
     and find a dirt pile to dig up a pick-a-nick basket, which produces a bear, 
     and a minikit.
    
    Treasure #3 *Ent Draught* - (Free Play) After you find Treebeard, proceed 
     until just before the waterfall.  There's a soil patch to plant in there, 
     which will toss out this.
    
    Minikit #9 - After the boulders, you'll turn right and see a minikit in the 
     trees.  Go back to the left, grab a boulder, and look in the upper left 
     corner to see a LEGO owl perched in the trees.  Throw a boulder at it (back 
     up, as it's a tough shot).  It will move to another nearby branch, so 
     throw another boulder.  It will move to the minikit, so throw one last 
     boulder.
    
    Minikit #10 - To the right of the tree that the orcs set on fire, walk over the 
     fallen log to find three orc targets.  You can either hit them normally or

     dig pile.  Get in there to dig up a scarecrow, then mount a horse.  You'll

     a horse.
    
    Minikit #10 - (Free Play) At the far right end of the field, dig up the 
     four colored blocks, then use Gandalf to assemble them into stairs.  Hop up

     field on the right side are a couple of mithril rocks.  Blast them, then dig

    5L. Osgiliath =
    ===============

     take this very visible minikit.
    
    Minikit #2 - (Free Play) In the back path, you need to find a flag pole, and 
     a flag.  The pole is found first, and rather early.  There are two targets 
     where Faramir shoots arrows to let Frodo and Sam through gates.  The spot 
     you need to find is to the left of those targets.  There's a rail on the 
     tower.  Leap up to it with an elf and grab the pole.  The rest happens 
     later, after you climb a LEGO wall and push a pillar off the edge.  Use an 
     elf to hop up to the ledge where the barrels are and pick up the flag.  
     Combine them and give them to the nearby soldier.

    ******************************************************************************
    6. MIDDLE-EARTH EXPLORATION
    ******************************************************************************
    
    So, Middle-earth is a nice huge place to explore, full of all sorts of little 
    puzzles and challenges.
    
    First, a note about the map.  The map is your friend.  It even helps you 
    find things.  Make sure you seek out Map Stones in every area.  There's one 
    for every area I have marked here, and every time you visit a Map Stone, all 
    of the stuff you can find in that area appears on your map.  If you want to 
    find that specific item, simply select it on the map and "Set Destination" 
    and the game will give you the best path to it, even if it seems to be buried 
    in the mountains.
    
    Under each Map Stone, you can find how many of five possible things are in 
    the area:
    
    Side Quests: Represented as green question marks initially.  These are little 
     fetch quests that require you to find or forge an item.  Simply walk up to 
     the person and they'll tell you what they want, and even give a hint if 
     it's a Treasure to be found in Free Play.  Sometimes the person is "hidden" 
     behind a small challenge of its own, and you'll find that info on how to 
     get to them in each entry.  Give them the item they ask for and you'll get 
     either a Mithril Brick or a Red Brick will appear for purchase.
    
    Red Bricks: These are, of course, Extras which go in your Extras Menu once 
     purchased.  I have a list of them way down in Section 8C that describes the 
     function of each one.  You can ONLY get Red Bricks from completing Side 
     Quests, so I haven't listed how to get them here, as it'd be seriously 
     redundant.
    
    Characters: Looking like a golden statue, these are extra characters wandering 
     Middle-earth looking to be purchased.  They will appear in their respective 
     areas after completing Story Missions, although you may not be able to get 
     to them right away, let alone afford them.  Section 7 is my list of 
     characters, including their prices, so I don't bother to list them here.  
     They're pretty obvious anyway.
    
     NOTE: For some weird reason, once you purchase Characters, they disappear 
     from the Map Stone list, whereas nothing else does.  I have no idea why.  I'm 
     honestly probably the only one who cares since I was trying to add everyone 
     up, but there you go.
    
    Mithril Bricks: Silver colored bricks are the main form of currency in this 
     game.  You turn them in to the Blacksmith to forge cool stuff.  There are 
     a total of 250 in the game, so get collecting!
    
    Blacksmith Design: These are brought to the Blacksmith so he can make all 
     your cool stuff.  There are a bunch found in Middle-earth as well as one in 
     each Story Mission.
    
    ---
    
    So, a couple of notes before we begin.  Note that in some cases, time is 
    important for items.  Hover over certain items to see whether they have a 
    sun or moon behind them.  That means they're specific to day or night, 
    respectively.  While you're within the story, you can't change the time.  
    Once you complete it, you can change the time whenever you fast-travel using 
    Map Stones.
    
    Also, the directions I give you for the location are pretty simple and 
    vague.  This is because the map will exactly mark where you need to go and 
    guide you there if you need it, so use it.  Makes things a lot easier than 
    me trying to point you there, so use my locations as a reference along with 
    your map to find stuff.

    ================
    
    *Entering the Barrow Downs*
    
    Well, I assume they're the Barrow Downs because they're inhabited by 
    ghosties.  This is a special cut off area to the north that's somewhat 
    tough to get to, and I'd rather not describe it for each entry.
    
    First, you'll need Mithril Boxing Gloves.  From Weathertop itself, head 
    to the water to the north, then to the west where there's an arrow hole 
    for Legolas.  Shoot at the hole, then cross the water to the far side.  
    Equip the Mithril Boxing Gloves and pull open the gate to the barrows.

     have no idea why, as it's in the Weathertop locale with all other 
     Weathertop stuff, so I'm putting it here.

     the target so you can hop to the center pillar.  Slam it with Gimli, then 
     cross to the far shore.  Shoot at the holes so you can flip up to the

    There are a couple of notes.  For one, you can switch to other characters 
    while here.  Unfortunately, for some reason, switching away from Sauron 
    and the Mouth means you can't switch back.  Don't worry, you'll get both 
    of them for reals after you complete this.
    
    As for other stuff in the mission itself, make sure you use bombs to clear 
    out the high parts of areas.  Also, there's a crank at the Argonath which 
    is in Moria, which you can totally go inside.  Lastly, smash Mount Doom 
    repeatedly to get pieces to rebuild Barad-dúr into the most awesome place.
    
    Once you get the million (and trust me, it isn't hard), the level ends, 
    you get to keep all the studs, and you get the two bad bros for keeps.

    8. SECRETS/UNLOCKABLES

    =====================
    8A. How To Get 100% =
    =====================
    
    In the beginning, I'd suggest simply going through the story, as your running 
    about in Middle-earth is rather restricted otherwise.  Once the story is 
    complete, it's time to get ready for collecting.
    
    First, you'll need everything necessary to get all the items in the 
    missions.  For that, you'll definitely need Explosives, so go to Barad-dúr 
    and get the design for Mithril Fireworks, and you might as well purchased 
    the Berserker for good measure.
    
    You'll also need the following items in your Treasure Trove:
    - Mithril Bow of some sort
    - Axe of some sort (either Golden Axe or Mithril Shockwave Axe)
    - A Rope of some sort (either the Mithril Rope or the Toy Snake)
    - Mithril Boxing Gloves
    - Mithril Bottomless Bucket
    
    This is because certain times in the missions there won't be a chance to 
    switch characters, so you have to rely on items.
    
    Your next priority is stud multipliers.  Spend studs on NOTHING before you 
    buy these.  The first should be x2, naturally, but you'll need Explosives 
    for it.  x8 and x10 you can get the designs for the first time through their 
    levels, but they're prohibitively expensive, so you likely won't be able to 
    get them right away.
    
    Once you get those, you're free to go through all the missions and clean up 
    Middle-earth.  You should have more than enough studs by then to get 
    everything else.
    
    ===================
    8B. Treasure List =
    ===================
    
    Here's a quick list of all the treasures in the game!  I also include which 
    mission you can find it in and what it does, if anything.  Note that some of 
    these items actually do something useful, so you can use them instead of 
    certain characters if need be.

    - Finish one of Gimli's opponents as Legolas in Helm's Deep
    NOTE: Not entirely sure on this one.  Just keep killing stuff with Legolas 
     and you'll likely get it.
    
    I've always been taller!
    - Use the Ent Draught on Pippin.
    NOTE: Specifically, equip a character with the Ent Draught treasure, then 
     hit Pippin with it to make his head grow.
    
    We cannot linger.
    - Complete "The Mines of Moria" in under 15 minutes.
    
    Dance of the dead.
    - Turn an enemy into a skeleton and make them dance.
    NOTE: To do this, first hit them with either the Mithril Skeleton Sword or 
     the Mithril Skeleton Bow, then pull out the Mithril Music Horn or the 
     Mithril Disco Phial.  You can also do this on other hero characters.
    
    Pointy-eared Elvish princeling.
    - Defeat 42 Uruk-hai as Legolas.
    
    One does not simply...
    - Walk into Mordor.
    NOTE: I only received this one after puttering around Mordor for some time, 
     so I'm not entirely sure how to get this.  Just go for all the items in 
     there and try not to worry too much about it.
    
    Great! ...Where are we going?
    - Form the Fellowship of the Ring
    
    Taking the Hobbits to Isengard.
    - Travel to Isengard as every playable Hobbit.
    NOTE: This includes Rosie and Bilbo.  What I suggest is just fast travel 
     as every Hobbit over and over again until you get it.
    
    That still only counts as one!
    - Defeat an oliphaunt as Legolas
    
    An expected journey.
    - Travel to Trollshaws as Bilbo
    
    Return of the Mushroom King.
    - Equip Aragorn with the Mushroom Crown
    
    Worth greater than the Shire.
    - Dress a character completely in treasure items.
    NOTE: This will mean a hat, armor, footwear, and something in both hands.
    
    It won't be that easy!
    - During "Prologue", jump into the fires of Mount Doom as Isildur.
    NOTE: Walk to the end of the Cracks of Doom, but don't get too close to 
     the edge.  Jump instead off the side.
    
    A link to the elements.
    - Craft the Fire and Ice Bows.

    Zdankiewicz.  You may not take it in whole or in part and claim it as your 
    own.  You may not alter it in any way, even if you ask me first, and that 
    includes putting it in HTML format.  Please don’t post this on your site 
    unless you have express consent by me.  I’ve put a lot of time into this.  
    Give me some credit.

    I'm not going to allow people with small personal sites to post this FAQ.  
    They may post the link on GameFAQs with all the LEGO LOTR guides, but, 
    trying to keep updates, well, updated, I'll only allow large committed sites 
    that I trust.

    9B. E-mail Guidelines =
    =======================
    
    If you wish to e-mail me, be sure to follow these guidelines...
    
    - Make ABSOLUTELY sure I haven't already answered your question in the guide.
    - Make sure it has something to do with LEGO LOTR.  I don't want spam, 
    chain letters, offers for friendship.  Compliment me on the FAQ all you want, 
    though.
    - Make sure you say LEGO LOTR at one point in your e-mail.  I have more than 
    one LEGO FAQ, and asking a generic question such as "How do I beat the last 
    level?" doesn't tell me much.
    - Spell correctly and use proper grammar, please.  If I can't understand 
    your e-mail, it'll go to the junk pile.

    9E. The Final Word =
    ====================
    
    Another awesome entry from Telltale Games, allowing us to enjoy the movies 
    in LEGO form, giving us their excellent brand of humor, and throwing in a 
    lot of fun to boot.
    
    Also, for those of you keeping score, I do enjoy putting quotes before the 
    missions, but with the game being fully voiced, it seemed a little 
    redundant, so I challenged myself to use quotes that didn't appear in the 
    game.  How did I do?
    
    Next year.  For the Wii U.  LEGO CITY UNDERCOVER.  Can you handle it?  CAN 
    YOU HANDLE IT??
