Fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic understand the significance of the coveted One Ring, created by the Lord of Darkness, Sauron, who relentlessly seeks its power.
Created by the Lord of Darkness himself, Sauron will never stop until he gets his hands once again to his source of power and existence. And Sauron’s feeling of morbid triumph and diabolical satisfaction is perfectly captured by builder Aaron Newman in this retelling of one of the literature’s vilest characters.
This Custom LEGO Sauron Bids You To Take A Second Look!
The Dark Lord of Mordor is relentless in making sure that the One Ring finds his way back to him. In fact, we see Sauron even wield the powerful Ring in the first scenes of the blockbuster film, Lord of the Rings. This moment was excellently rendered in bricks in his custom LEGO Sauron as you can see below.
Aaron’s creative vision for this custom LEGO Sauron drew its inspiration directly from the iconic 2001 film, where audiences witnessed the armor-clad behemoth relentlessly hammering away at the overwhelmed forces of Middle-Earth.
The beauty behind this LEGO masterpiece lies in Aaron’s skillful use of metallic grey and silver pieces, a deliberate choice that bestows upon this brick-built, diabolical figure an aura of sinister grandeur. These carefully selected elements, with their gleaming sheen, imbue this custom LEGO Sauron with an air of malevolent royalty, capturing the essence of his character in every meticulously placed brick and detail.
Furthermore, this custom LEGO Sauron features a realistic build that is very imposing coming in at 13 inches in height. The details on Sauron’s helmet and mace are spot-on, with Aaron effectively using those new LEGO Ninjago blade pieces to Sauron’s advantage.

The rest of the body is also properly scaled, giving this custom LEGO Sauron a deceitfully fragile look as the antagonist would like to make his enemies believe. Its slim figure is basically compensated with its heavily armored garb, complete with a pair of capes and a destructive mace.
