Incredible LEGO scale replica of Erebor from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit

Two American teenagers, Blake Baer and Jack Bittner, have built a scale replica of the Kingdom of Erebor from J.R.R. Tolkien and Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit. Built from almost 80,000 pices of LEGO this is an achievement worthy of song.

The replica is over 1.4 metres high and ways over 90 kilos. The entire effort took the pair 400 hours to complete. The complete set of image is available on Flickr, but we’ve included some of the key ones below.

The second film in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will be released in Ireland on December 13th.
