Custom LEGO Rivendell from Lord of the Rings Weighs More than Samwise Gamgee

At 120 pounds and 40 inches long, this custom built Rivendell outweighs that stupid fat Hobbit and would be nearly as tall as him if stood up. Fifty thousand LEGO bricks went into this stunning piece by Blake Baer and Jack Bittner. Check out Blake’s Rivendell photostream for more incredible pictures.

It took 100 hours of prep time, but LEGO builders Blake Baer and Jack Bittner were able to depict the Elven paradise of Rivendell out of more than 50,000 pieces. This diorama weighs 120 pounds and is 40 inches by 30 inches, so you can simply drop this it on any Nazgûl who come a-knocking.
