Rivendell LEGO Set

Tonight at midnight, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is unleashed on audiences, leaving just one more chapter in Peter Jackson's trilogy left for release next winter. If the epic trailers and the most recent production blogs don't have you on board with the sequel (even if you were underwhelmed by the first film), we recommend you stick around and see how the story unfolds. As we wait for the release tonight, check out this amazing, gigantic homemade LEGO recreation of the elvish land of Rivendell. Made with over 200,000 LEGO bricks, this creation won the People's Choice Award at BrickCon (a convention for LEGO builders). The details are incredible, with nods to both The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings within.

Here's some photos from this epic LEGO creation of Rivendell from Middle-Earth (via OneRing.net):

Alice Finch, who also created the largest LEGO Hogwarts ever built, teamed up with fellow builder David Frank to create this version of Middle-earth’s Rivendell. If you want to know more about how they built this impressively massive set, The Brothers Brick (via OneRing.net) have a great interview with the builders. I hate to imagine what this set would cost if it were sold by LEGO. You can see tons more photos right here.

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit... J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson as three separate movies, is set in Middle-Earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, were shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest cameras. The Hobbit follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug lands in theaters in 3D & 48FPS on December 13th.
