Life-sized LEGO Bag End: Hobrickton

by Conner Flynn

You have to be a serious Hobbit fan to build a life-sized version of Bag End. Especially when you consider that this masterpiece took 3,000 hours to build using only LEGO and Duplo bricks. But it is now complete.

And beautiful, it is. It was obviously a real labor of Hobbit love. And the detail looks pretty stunning. The model measures 18-feet-long, 6.5-feet-tall and 6-feet-deep. While the builders can’t tell us exactly how many bricks they used, their computer model says that it has the equivalent of over 2.5 million 1×1 LEGO bricks.

This thing is enough to get any LEGO or LOTR nerd worked up to build their own masterpiece. However all of that time and the sheer number of bricks it took to make this makes me glad that I can appreciate it from afar without all of the work.

Check out the video below to see how this epic LEGO build came together:

The Bag End model was designed and assembled by a team of LEGO model builders to promote their new set, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Gathering, which will let you have the same scene – at 1/20th of the size – for about $70(USD).
