Two teenagers used nearly 80,000 Lego bricks to build a replica of Lord of the Rings’ dwarf home
Jack Bittner (left), 18, and Blake Baer (right), 17, used nearly 80,000 Lego bricks to build a super detailed replica of “Erebor”, which is home to the dwarves from J. R. R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit”.
The home belongs to the “Longbeards”, which is a clan of dwarves from the epic movie. It is also where the one true ring, Arkenstone, which the movie mainly revolves around, was discovered and subsequently lost, according to the story.
According to tech blog Gizmodo, it took the duo about 400 hours to build the replica which weighs about 90kg and is about 1.5m long.
Huffington Post reported in 2012, the duo had built a Lego replica of “Rivendell”, which is home to the elves from the same movie.
