Dear lord. Guess how many pieces are in the above LEGO recreation of the Battle of Helms Deep from Lord of the Rings? 50,000? 80,000?
Try 150,000. And 1,700 of those are minifigs, both orc, human and elf. I’m not sure how many man hours it too, but I’m sure the answer is “too many.” This is one of the coolest LEGO projects I’ve ever seen though, and that’s saying something considering how long I’ve done this job. There are a bunch more angles of the incredibly detailed set (which is not for sale, and custom made, obviously), which you can check out below.
Next up in epic movie battle sequences to recreate, 300 Spartans vs. a million Persians at the Hot Gates of Thermopylae? DO IT.
