In February, we showed a 400,000 brick recreation of Hogwarts. While it doesn’t have as many bricks, Rich-K & Big J‘s Helm’s Deep is just as impressive. Lego does make a Helm’s Deep you can buy, and it’s fun. It’s 1,368 pieces and it took me about four-and-a-half hours to build. By comparison, Rich-K & Big J’s fan-made version is 150,000 pieces with 1,700 mini-figures and it’s only “90% completed”. I have no idea how long it took to build, but the result has been worth it. I especially like the touches of putting mountains in the background and filling every spare inch with either an uruk-hai or an elf. I can’t seem to find Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas, but I’m assume they’re in there somewhere.
