Life-Size LEGO Bag End

Postby Staff » Mon Dec 17, 2012 1:55 pm


Bag End 3


I can only assume that this massive sculpture was built to promote the release of sets based The Hobbit, but I have no idea where it is (or where it's going to be) displayed. I certainly hope it shows up at the NY Toy Fair in February though. You can view the original gallery on LEGO's Facebook page, or on Flickr by clicking the image. Hopefully some better pictures will be forthcoming very soon.
This is what LEGO had to say about it:

It took a team of 12 model shop employees 3,000 hours to build this life size model of the LEGO Bag End set. In addition to containing over 2 million 1x1 bricks this model has working lights in the fireplace and over the bookstand as well as a chimney that really smokes!


Sorry to say, I like this a lot more than the movie itself.

Notice how in the large version... the dwarf's legs are pose-able.

Haven't logged in forever, hope everyone's doing well... :)

Anyone else notice the UCS-style Sandcrawler at 1:46? After the BTTF announcement, I'm kind of obsessed with the idea of owning that...

Saw it in person at LEGOFest in Richmond, VA -- we weren't allowed to walk around in it, but we could pose for photos around the outskirts. It totally rocked!
