LEGO.com The Hobbit™ Video Game

Original article

With the interactive game of LEGO® The Hobbit™, gamers will play along with their favorite scenes from the films, following Bilbo Baggins as he is recruited by Gandalf to aid Thorin Oakenshield and his company of Dwarves.

Bilbo leaves the comforts of the Shire on a journey through Middle-earth to help the Dwarves reclaim their lost Kingdom of Erebor within the Lonely Mountain. Along the way, he is introduced to ravenous Trolls, dangerous Orcs and, of course, Gollum and his precious Ring. Players will utilize and combine the Dwarves’ unique abilities – often with hilarious results – to solve the most diverse Quests of any LEGO® videogame to date.

LEGO Rivendell_16125000049_l A little while back, we featured a story on a 120,000 piece Lego replica[2] of Weta’s rendition of Peter Jackson’s Rivendell from The Hobbit.

Here, the designer and builder — Ben Pitchford — chats with us about his enormous creation, and how Lego has since asked him to submit a smaller, potentially commerciable, version to their Lego Ideas site. (If you’d like to see it become a reality — it needs 10,000 supporters to move to the next stage and is already almost halfway there — then head over to Ben’s page on Lego Ideas and add your backing.) [3][4]

Tell us a bit about yourself. The cliff notes version, if you like!

Ben P: I’m a big fan of the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit books and movies. I also enjoy building LEGO with my kids and as a creative outlet after work.

How long have you been building with LEGO, and what inspired you to start doing it seriously?

Ben P: Like most LEGO fans I began building at a young age until my early teens and got back into it three years ago (before my oldest kid turned two). After discovering websites like Mocpages and The Brother’s Brick I realized the potential for building custom models instead of following the instructions on store bought sets.

Incredible Hobbit LEGO set could be in shops soon – Mirror.co.uk

Original article

LEGO fan Ben Pitchford has created this incredible Hobbit set, based on Rivendell as portrayed in the film The Hobbit: An Unexpected Gathering.[1][2]

The incredible model contains over 5,000 pieces – and you might be able to buy it in shops soon.

The LEGO Ideas page[3] allows fans to submit their own models to be made in to real sets. It’s a bit like Kickstarter, in that the most popular ideas actually get made.

Check out this incredible Hobbit model…

You need a pretty big house to store this… luckily only the buildings and characters would come in the set

If you want to support Ben’s creation[4] and see it made into a reality, check out his LEGO ideas page.[5] The set needs 10,000 supporters to become a reality.
