I've been an elementary school teacher since the mid 90s, and the children that like either the LOTR movies or books are few and far between, even during the peak of the movie popularity. The most I could ever get out of the kids when mentioning LOTR is "my dad likes those movies."
Star Wars has been a constant currency of playground activity and classroom chatter ever since the rerelease of the OT, through the prequels, and especially now with the TV show.
Out of the 800 kids at my school, I can name maybe three that are fans of LOTR. None of them were interested in the idea of LOTR legos when I mentioned the new sets to them. They all said they had outgrown them.
Hopefully, the Hobbit will change this.
LOTR is a teen/adult property. Kids fantasy is dominated by HP and the Rick Riordan stuff. I've not known one kid that managed to finish one of the books, let alone the whole series, though a couple try every year. I think once the core sets are done for the Hobbit this fall, the best bet for Lego would be to get out some UCS stuff, like Saruman's tower.

If so that is a brilliant solution without all of the extra brick. Also adds an element that goes well with the other panels thus allowing odd stud number construction with panels.
