I didn’t like Game of Thrones at first, but the show has certainly grown on me and I like it now. It’s one of the few shows that I still like to watch the opening scenes of just to see the moving fortresses and such.
Japanese LEGO enthusiast and all around brick genius Talapz has created a super impressive LEGO creation that has to be seen to be believed: a LEGO pop-up castle.
For this build, he reproduced the Himeji medieval castle, but with an awesome twist.
The history of light and shadow, drawn in bricks. MOCer Joseph Zawada has spent more than two years building this massive LEGO model of the Hyrule Castle, which he based on its appearance in his favorite Legend of Zelda game, Twilight Princess.
LEGO enthusiast ZaziNombies made this Minecraft-themed castle at the request of one of his YouTube fans. Made of about 20,000 pieces, the castle is large enough to comfortably house the LEGO Ender Dragon, not to mention ZaziNombies’ cat.
