My jaw literally dropped when I saw this and all I could say was “WOW!”
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 1×1 bricks this model has working lights in the fireplace and over the bookstand as well as a chimney that really smokes!
The people in the picture give you a hint on the shear scale of this model.
Words fail me with this model, its simply awesome! You can find more pictures of this model at LEGO Shop’s Facebook page
