Middle-earth Madness: Sauron, Denethor, Grima, Fireworks, Laser Light Shows, Goblin Ball!

So we have a few more details to share with you concerning the Middle-earth Madness celebration taking place right now at the Best Buy in Los Angeles. (1301 W. Pico. Blvd) First off, we can confirm that John Noble (Denethor), Brad Dourif (Wormtongue) and Sala Baker (Sauron) will be attending this evening's festivities! Secondly, there will be a Laser Light show and Fireworks starting at approximately 11:45. (How awesome is that?!) And of course, what Tolkien can be had in LA without a game of Goblin Ball! (You know, you knock the heads off Goblins for fun). We've also got loads of shirts, posters and other swag to hand out throughout the evening. And of course, we are streaming events live as they happen on our Stickam account. You can see it on the homepage of TORn, or through the following link. [Stickam] If you are following along on Twitter, our hashtag is #MEMadness, and of course, we'll be posting pics on Facebook throughout the evening. If you want to have your chance at winning a Grand Prize trip to New Zealand, make sure you get to Best Buy BEFORE 7pm PT. And we can't forget the whole reason we are throwing this party today...the release of The Lord of the Rings Extended Edition Trilogy on Blu-Ray is tonight at Midnight! The countdown continues!! [Live Stream] [Facebook] [Twitter] [Event Details] [WBshop.com]

Looks like a hoot!

I love midnight release events! Speaking for many, wish we were there. The live feed is a nice touch though, thank you TORnSmile


Good luck to everyone who enters the Trip to Middle-earth sweeps.


Years ago I won a replica Hadhafang -- the Noble Collection version -- from Best Buy in the lead up to the ROTK release. That was pretty exciting... can't even imagine what winning the trip would be like!

Jealous...

I told Ainu Laire on facebook that I would happily be one of those "I wanna be a staffer" feedback posters if it in any way meant that I could attend these kinds of events. *slowly turning into a green-eyed monster*

So glad to see that it looks like a great time! Smile
