Remember the LEGO Barad-Dûr (Dark Tower) from Lord of the Rings we showed you a few weeks back? Well, it turns out that massive project was only a small part of a much larger vision. Kevin Walter, the guy who built it, collaborated with Chris and a bunch of other LEGO builders from MOCpages to build Middle-Earth. Yes, THE ENTIRE MIDDLE-EARTH!
This team of builders created every location we remember seeing in the movies. Hobbiton, the town of Bree and the Inn at the Prancing Pony, Rivendell, the Mines of Moria, Isengard, Helm’s Deep, Mias Tirith featuring the armies of Mordor, Minas Morgul, The Black Gate and Mount Doom all had a spot in the display. To top it all off (and make me cry a little bit inside) they set all of it on top of a hand-painted map of Middle-Earth!
This was an absolutely incredible build and we’d like to give the “Fellowship of the Brick” a huge (but nice) pat on the back. You can read the story of how it all came together and browse through a ton of photos over at MOCpages.com.
