This Awesome 50,000-Piece Lego Rivendell Was Made by a Kid

The Lego Lord of the Rings sets are pretty neat, but they can't compete with this gigantic version of Rivendell, the Elven town in Middle-earth, home of Elrond and his family. Watch the video and look at the gallery, because it's awesome and it was made by a kid!

Created by Blake Baer—a teen Lego master from Pennsylvania—it's made using more than 50,000 pieces and weighs 55kg. The level of detail and accuracy is simply mind blowing. I've been playing with Lego since I was four, but it's humbling to see this level of achievement from such a young guy. I'm sure the Lego company is itching to bring him to Billund. [Flickr]
