The uber awesome LEGO model shop built a life size (Hobbit scale) replica of their recently released set LEGO The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The set is based on the opening scene of the movie The Hobbit: An unexpected Journey. The set captures the scene and Bilbo’s Hobbit Hole, Bag End, in amazing detail. A team of 12 LEGO model employees worked for 3,000 hours building the replica and used over 2 million 1×1 bricks to build Bilbo’s home. The model shop also built related set elements, and the LEGO minifigures that are also included in the set. Creatacor worked closely with the model shop in building portable platforms for the set replica, which required a space of 234′ and needed to be easily shipped around the country for upcoming events. We also worked with the model shop with the tree on top of the model and to make sure we had a chimney that really smokes!
[Keep your eyes peeled for Rich, Brandon and Jim helping with the setup!]
