Adult fascination with LEGOs never seems to die. We’ve profiled the creation of a massive LEGO “Garrison of Moriah” by a Star Wars fan and the construction of an equally large LEGO replica of the “Love Boat” by a fan of the television show with the same name. Now a fan of The Lord of the Rings has unveiled his own LEGO creation, The Dark Tower (Barad-Dûr), built for Brick World 2011.
For those unfamiliar with the story, Barad-dûr, also known as the Dark Tower, was the Dark Lord Sauron’s main stronghold in Middle-earth. Built during the Second Age, it was destroyed at the end of the War of the Ring.
Kevin Walter, LEGO and LOTR lover, built the tower pictured below out of the tiny bricks. Unfortunately there isn’t an exact count of how many bricks Walter used in his masterpiece, but from his Flickr account one learns that the tower measures 175 cm, or almost 6 feet tall!
He looks more tired than pleased with the finished product, no?
