Danish artist Victoria has created a paper sculpture of Smaug the dragon using pages of The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. If you squint, you can even see a tiny paper figure of Bilbo Baggins hiding behind the book! You can see more of Victoria’s work at her DeviantArt page. (Via Laughing Squid)
After building Hogwarts Academy using 400,000 LEGO pieces, Alice Finch clearly needed to keep feeding her geek-building side. Together with David Frank, Finch created this 5-foot x 10-foot representation of Lord Elrond’s domain on Middle Earth.

Who says nonagenarians can’t have fun? That’s clearly not the case for Sir Christopher Lee, the distinguished actor who has played such classic film luminaries as Count Dracula, Saruman, and Count Dooku.

I knew it! Traveler’s Tales, Warner Bros., and LEGO are teaming up once again to produce another LEGO video game based on a major Hollywood property. They’ve done Star Wars, they’ve done Harry Potter, they’ve done Indiana Jones, and even Pirates of the Caribbean. There’s just no way they weren’t going to do LEGO Lord […]
