The Lego battlements at Helm's Deep

Lego builders Rich-K and Big J put 150,000 bricks and 1,700 minifigs together to create an impressive Lego model of Helm's Deep from "Lord of the Rings." The model is 90 percent complete, with plans to add a tower to the right side of the set and finish the build-out of the top parts of the fortress.

'Lord of the Rings' Lego minifigs in battle

When you put 150,000 Lego bricks together to build a re-creation of Helm's Deep from "Lord of the Rings," the result is a pretty hefty structure. The creators of this project say that it requires three adults to transfer just the right side of the castle section.
