LEGO Rivendell made with over 200,000 bricks is a marvel to behold!

At last October’s BrickCon in Seattle, a new collaborative LEGO creation was unveiled to the world. Alice Finch, the same talented artist who created the largest LEGO Hogwarts ever built, teamed up with fellow creator David Frank to build their own version of Middle-earth’s Rivendell. There have been other impressive versions built before but this may dwarf them all. I was fortunate enough to see this in person and it was truly spectacular! It really captured the hearts of the public attendees at BrickCon where it picked up the People’s Choice Award. LEGO blog The Brothers Brick has a great interview with Alice and David, that goes into how and why they came to build this amazing version of Lord Elrond’s domain. The photos show all the detail inspired by “The Fellowship of the Ring” and “An Unexpected Journey” as well as the massive size. It even lights up!
