In its Enfield, Connecticut, office, Lego has spent over 3000 hours building Bilbo Baggins' home from The Hobbit.
It's not just, it seems. Even Lego has fallen victim to the dreaded Hobbititis, spending over 3000 hours and using over 2 million Lego bricks to build a life-sized model of Bilbo Baggins' Bag End.
Our favourite thing about it isn't that it's JRR Tolkien, or that it's made out of Lego; it's that the entire thing has been built to scale as if it were really made out of Lego. The characters are giant minifigs made out of Lego; the objects are shaped as though made out of giant Lego bricks; specialty to-scale pieces, such as goblets and flowers, have been created; and every surface has Lego's stacking texturing.
We can't help wondering whether it hurts Hobbits to be walking around in it in their bare feet.
