The wide reaching Lego Hobbit campaign has covered a lot of bases, with a videogame, a board game, and even a photo op of the movie actors with their respective minifigs. But somehow, something was missing; a lifesize, 2,000,000 brick version of the Hobbit Hole set? Yeah, that was it, now I'm satisfied.http://www.bzpower.com/story.php?ID=5883]View the full article[/url]

I wonder how many people would buy this if it were an actual Lego set that could be purchased?

 

But anyway, this is really cool.

I really doubt someone would actually buy this, but if you have lots money to spend that's the way to tell your child "Merry Christmas"! :P

Whatever. Very cool. I can barely imagine how many 2,000,000 bricks are...

So did they build life-size versions of the individual bricks in the set, and then piece them together, or did they just put the thing together ground up?

Life-size versions of bricks would be awesome.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Build  :P ?

 

Anyways, lame jokes aside, it's a really nice build, and I'm always amazed by the mini-figs built out of Lego bricks (I wish I could get a close up...)

I actually learned about this back on the 10th, when my boss Dan Parker went to Enfield, CT for a meeting. He called me up mid-day and was all "Dude, they have a 20x scale Bag-end. You've gotta see it when photos go up."I was waiting for this day to come.Also to clarify, I've read deeper into what they said as far as parts count, they clarified the software they used said "2.5 Million 1x1 bricks" which isn't the same as 2 million bricks. That's just the rough count of studs it'd have in it. This doesn't take away from the level of complexity and the level of work put into it, but it certainly took less material than one might imagine.There is also the factor they used Duplo in the walls for strength, which helps bulk up most of it.

OK that's so cool. I wonder how it compares to modern houses structurally, Lego seems to be incredibly durable and strong so it wouldn't surprise me if it could survive even in fairly harsh climates.
