Watch Helm's Deep battle, via Lego animation

What to do when Gimli needs a box? Ask Legolas

The very talented "Brotherhood Workshop" has posted another very funny Lego animation based on the Lord of the Rings movies (everyone got their Hobbit tickets yet?).


This time, we get to witness the Battle of Helm's Deep, but one of our heroes seems a bit distracted in another side quest (sounds like my role-playing-game experiences).

When it comes to Lego animation, do you prefer the ones made with actual Lego toys, or the CGI versions (usually done by the Lego team themselves?) Let me know in the comments!
