Between the minikits, treasures and blacksmith designs, it's easy to get overwhelmed trying to find them all. This guide hopes to give you a helping hand for those tricky ones.
Before you begin
In order for this guide to be as helpful as it can be, please keep in mind a few quick things:
It is assumed you are playing through on Freeplay. Even thought a few minikits and treasures can be discovered through the story mode of the game, most of them cannot be obtained without some very specialized tools.
Many levels contain special, hidden areas. Where relevant, I have called out how to access the secret area near the beginning of the stage.
Since the e-guide format is text-only, I have tried to be as specific as possible in the descriptions. If there is something that is still too vague or you just can't seem to track down, please don't hesitate to ask!
Stage-by-Stage Collectibles Walkthrough
Secret Area In the first area after defeating Sauron, use a tall character to throw a dwarf at the cracked LEGO tile. This will reaveal a huge, secret cavern.
Dig up this minikit from the LEGO soil in the upper left corner of the battlefield as the stage begins.
At the beginning of the stage, shoot the three targets in the background.
Destroy 5 Sauron statues throughout the level. They are on Morgul brick stacks, so use a weapon capable of destroying Morgul bricks (1. In the hidden cave, 2. past the second lava river and the two holes in the wall the spit fire, 3. just past the third lava river and up the ramp near where you must use high jumping to proceed, 4&5. On either side of the doors leading to the heart of Mount Doom)
In the back of the secret area, have both characters climb up onto the ledge using ropes on the yellow hook. Use a tall character to throw a dwarf across the gap, destroying the LEGO boulders. Switch to Gollum or equip an item that allows you to climb walls and scale the wall to the highest platform. Finally, pull out a weapon that allows you to destroy Morgul bricks and smash the block, spilling lava into the pool of water and revealing the minikit.
After the second lava river, throw a dwarf at the cracked tile high on the wall and assemble the bricks that fall from it to block one of the fire spitting holes. Shoot the target above the other hole to block it as well and the wall will blow, spitting out the pieces of the minikit for you to assemble.
Just past minikit 4 in the lava below the handholds there is a small LEGO platform. Get close and use a rope to yank the platform out so you can reach the minikit.
Use a light source to illuminate the cave the orcs charge from near the Morgul brick that you must destroy to create a platform.
After using a character or item with jumping to climb the platform and shove the LEGO block off, use a weapon that can destroy Morgul bricks to smash the ones on the platform and reveal the minikit.
Use explosives to clear the mithril bricks near the gates to the Heart of Mount Doom to reveal a hatch. Send a small character through it to a ledge containing the minikit.
Shoot the target above the gate directly behind you after entering the heart and it will drop to the ground.
