Lego version of Rivendell from ‘The Hobbit’ is almost as beautiful as the real thing
A smaller version of the project is currently looking for support on the Lego Ideas website.
One of the most beautiful locations in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy is Rivendell, home to Elrond and the Elves. Whether it’s described in J.R.R. Tolkien’s books or seen in Peter Jackson’s films, Rivendell is always stunning. Perhaps that’s why it’s no surprise that the location translates beautifully into a Lego creation that will leave you speechless!
YouTube channel Beyond the Brick interviewed Ben Pitchford, the man behind this Lego Rivendell, at Brickworld Chicago. The structure, which stands about four feet tall, took Pitchford about a year to complete. His family assisted with the project, which is modeled after the version of Rivendell seen in the first Hobbit film. You can see Gandalf, Bilbo Baggins, and the entire dwarf company in the highly detailed replica.
This smaller version would include approximately 10 buildings and more than 20 minifigures. The mountain from the Pitchford’s massive original creation, however, would not be included.
