Lord of the Rings by Open Door Enterprises
The 1979 release of "The Lord of the Rings" movie was a highly anticipated event by fans and toy companies, hoping to find a fantasy film franchise as lucrative as Star Wars had been.
Lord of the Rings was a box office hit but it didn't equate to much by the way of merchandise. One of the few licensors was a company called Open Door Enterprises, who produced a number of craft sets tied into the film.
The characters are so nicely designed, it makes sense they'd lend themselves to this kind of thing.
I imagine if these got made, they are highly sought after items.
The playset is amazing, as is the concept of a coloring book.
Somebody drop me a line if you had these as a kid.
