Rivendell from The Lord of the Rings built from 200,000 LEGOs

| Cool Stuff Found

If you can't go to Rivendell, the Last Homely Hearth in Middle Earth and the home of Elrond, why not build it? And if you can't build it, you know, for real, why not build it out of LEGOs? That's just what Alice Finch and David Frank spent months doing, and they used more than 200,000 LEGOs doing it. If you're a LEGO fan, you may remember that Ms. Finch also built Hogwarts using some 400,000 LEGOs, a project she worked on by herself (with help from her family). For this Lord of the Rings project, she worked with David Frank, and The Brick Brothers posted a nice interview with the duo about it. You can also see a ton of great photos on Ms. Finch's Flickr feed, including closeups, several shots of the whole project from different angles, and one with the two creators so you can get an idea of the enormity of the project. Check them both out.

I finally figured out the specific reason why “LEGOs” is not the correct plural, aside from grating on me every time I read it. http://jadedkiwi.com/archives/216
