A Lego Lord of the Rings video game is in the stars for later this year. AllGamesBeta and Gamespot both have images from UK retailer ShopTo with pre-order details, along with an October placemark launch. Meanwhile, MCV reports that packaging for the physical Lego Lord of the Rings toy sets mentions a game is in the works by Warner Bros.' Traveller's Tales.

A Warner Bros. Interactive rep told Joystiq, "We do not comment on speculation or rumors."

The Lego Lord of the Rings series first popped up on radar late last year, which ended up officially being a teaser for the physical sets... or not, as the current case may play out.
