15100406144_cb88557512_o Ben Pitchford builds Lego creations. In particular, over the last 11 months he’s been designing and constructing a 120,000-plus piece replica of Peter Jackson’s Rivendell from The Hobbit.

It’s enormous.

Sitting on a five feet by four feet baseplate, his replica Rivendell environment is more than 50 inches tall.

It also includes several little scenes/dioramas from an Unexpected Journey within it such as the arrival of Gandalf and The Company of Thorin Oakenshield, the return of Elrond, the dinner scene and the White Council meeting. Plus it lights up for a night-show as well.


Check out the vids below, including a making-of, or head here to see more neat pictures of Ben incredibly detailed creation.
