The Hobbit: 80,000 Piece LEGO EreborDecember 12th, 2013
Somehow, LEGO and J.R.R. Tolkien’s works just seem to go together. We’ve seen the LEGO Rivendell, Lord of the Rings LEGO Artwork, a Life-Size LEGO Hobbit Bag End, and a LEGO Battle of Helm’s Deep. Now, teenage LEGO builders Jack Bittner and Blake Baer have created the The Lonely Mountain, aka Erebor, as seen in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Using over 80,000 LEGO pieces, the work weighs 200 pounds and stands 56″ tall. It took the pair 400 hours to complete.
