Mountain Orcs are minifigures from The Lord of the Rings theme released in May 2012. They only appear in one set, 9473 The Mines of Moria.

Description[edit]

Mountain Orcs, unlike many of their kind, have jade-green skin, shown on their head and arms, but have grey hands. They wear armour plating on their torso with little tattered pieces of blood-red fabric. Their legs are just plain grey.

Their head has a sharp, sneering face with dilated pupils and light-yellow eyes, almost white. Their mouth is wide, bared, and clearly shows their sharp teeth. They come with black hair with a pair of jade-green ears.

Background[edit]

The Mountain Orcs were once men, but were corrupted and mutilated by Morgoth, Sauron's predecessor. He created orcs to be the infantry in his army. After Morgoth was defeated, the orcs were scattered but later regrouped under the banner of Sauron. They made an attempt to defeat the free peoples of Middle Earth but they were stopped by Elendil, Gil-Galad, Elrond, Isildur and the last alliance of elves and men. After this battle, the orcs were scattered into the Misty Mountains and Mirkwood. In Mirkwood, they rallied to the Witch king's army and made a strike for Arnor in the Misty Mountains. They made war for the dwarves' delvings and caves. After winning the war on the dwarves the Moria Orcs created an empire whose capitol was in mount Gundbad in the north. The Fellowship of the Ring encountered Orcs of the Misty Mountains in Erebor. The orcs were hunted to extinction after the defeat of Sauron by Aragorn, Eomer and their armies
