The Last March of the Ents, Portrayed With Over 22,000 LEGOs

Master LEGO building team OneLUG have completed their incredible model of the Battle of Isengard, a key battle in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. The model includes a whopping seven-foot tall Orthanc tower, dozens of ents, over a hundred orcs, and two small hobbits. Built to minifig scale, the entire tableau weighs 145 pounds, and uses 22,000 LEGO bricks across its eight-foot diameter. We’ve seen some pretty incredible LEGO creations inspired by J.R.R. Tolkein, but this one takes the cake.
