What is it about plastic bricks that urges people to rebuild grand structures from fantasy novels? First there was the 400,000-brick Hogwarts, then the 150,000-piece Lord of the Rings tower, and now the dwarf kingdom from The Hobbit has been done up in 80,000 Legos. It took two teenagers 400 hours to build the nearly five-feet-tall replica of Erebor, but the real question is how does a 17 and 18-year-old have the money for 200 pounds of Legos? [Gizmodo]
