We’ve featured a LEGO Helm’s Deep before, but that pales in comparison with this version built by Goel Kim and Big J. Made up of over 150,000 bricks and 2,000 mini-figs it took a year and a half of preparation and six months to build.

There’s a huge selection of photos on MOCpages and Flickr showing off the sheer scale and detail of the diorama.

Yet another addition to the growing set of LEGO diorams based on Lord of the Rings (we’ve previously had the Battle of Isengard and Barad Dûr) comes from Blake Baer and Jack Bittner who built this stunning version of Rivendell. They even made a video showcasing it for your viewing pleasure.
