LEGO enthusiasts Rich-K & Big J are working on an awesome recreation of the Battle of Helm’s Deep from The Two Towers volume of The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. It’s an epic model for an epic tale. Weighing in around 160 pounds and covering the area of a ping-pong table, this impressive project is 90% complete. Thus far it consists of 150,000 LEGO pieces and contains over 1,700 minifigs. That is a lot of tiny plastic people with even tinier plastic weapons. You can practically hear their battle cries.
