Random News: Lord of the Rings Projects

Hello Lovely Readers,

So today I have found some really amazing replicas of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit builds that people have done. Two of them are out of Legos, one is a doll’s house, and one is an actual house. They just show how cool being a nerd is!

First up is a replica of Rivendell out of 200,000 Lego bricks. You can view more information about the build here, as well as more pictures. This was built by Alice Finch and David Frank. It is truly beautiful!

Second is an unofficial version of the Battle of Helm’s Deep by Rich-K and Big J, with tons of photos here. There is an official Lego version of the Battle of Helm’s Deep, but it is not as extensive, with only 1,368 pieces, versus the over 150,000 of this unofficial version. On top of that staggering number there are 1,700 figurines in this version!!

Next is a doll house version of Bag End, from after The Hobbit. You can view many pictures as well as some information about the construction here. The amount of detail and work that was put into this version are truly staggering!

Lastly, here is an article about a real sized version of Bag End. There are many out there, and this is just one of the many. Again there are so many wonderful details that only a true fan could appreciate!

Are any of these tempting for you guys to build? I know I would love a Hobbit-hole type house one day, but right now funds just aren’t were they need to be for me to build my own!

Until next time,

About Lynne

I am currently a PhD student of Forensic Psychology, which may explain the off mix of extremely morbid books sitting next to children’s books. Hailing from the Midwest in the United States of America, I have now lived in England for over 2 years (which will explain any strange grammar usage). From a very young age, my parents cultivated a love of reading, and never restricted what I read. When I reached middle school I began reading Shakespeare (a lifelong love affair), but had also discovered the wonders of young adult fiction. While the world may now expect me to read books more reflective of my age, I have fought this and am a strong supporter of the YA novel! Despite having very little free time, I still sets aside time for a reading every evening, and listens to books on my way to University. I dream of one day being a published novelist and published scientist!
