It’s A Warm Day In Hobbiton, At This Lego Bag End

It’s A Warm Day In Hobbiton, At This Bag End, Outside Lego MOC

Bag End is a warm and cozy hole, located above Bagshot Row along a perfectly gardened hillside in Hobbiton. It is the desire of many Hobbits, especially the Sackville-Bagginses. But its owner, Bilbo Baggins has no intention of giving up his home. Every once in a while some unexpected visitors arrive, usually leading to grand adventures. This Lego build of Bag End is created by Dylan Lane. It expands and goes way beyond the official Lego set, released in 2012.

This build is interesting in that it incorporates lighting into the design. The creator has actually varied the green bricks on the hillside to reflect the sunlight that is shinning through tree branches. Dark green pieces can be found along the back representing the shadows over the grass. Brighter green can be found on the front facade, where the sunlight is directly hitting the hillside. An interesting effect that stands out in certain lighting conditions.

It’s A Warm Day At Bag End, LOTR Lego Build

This Lego Bag End took over two years to complete. It has been packed with little scenes and details from the film / books. On top of the hill Frodo Baggins can be seen relaxing by a huge tree, while Gandalf is riding into town with fireworks in tow. Placing this scene at the very beginning of the Lord of the Rings. Gandalf and Bilbo can take a break from birthday party planning to smoke some pipe-weed in the garden. A great mini-build, especially the white 1×1 round bricks being used with a transparent pole to represent smoke. Inside this Hobbit hole are two rooms. The main entrance and hallway with the iconic round door. Then off to the side you can find the little writing room, where Bilbo works finishing the Red Book of Westmarch, a collection of stories about Bilbo’s adventurous past.

Prologue: Concerning Hobbits, A Lego LOTR Series

Prologue: Concerning Hobbits, A Lego LOTR Series

The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien opens up with a prologue titled “Concerning Hobbits.” A humorous chapter about what a Hobbit is, their history, and their love of smoking pipe-weed. Micah Schmidt has started an ambitious Lego project of recreating scenes from each chapter from the trilogy. No better place to start than the beginning. This build features Bilbo writing in the Red Book of Westmarch the prologue from The Lord of the Rings. The Lego hobbit hole looks fantastic. The walls are gently curved, a cozy round window, and half of a wooden archway set the scene. The Lego furnishing are great; the messiness and general disarray works well. Check out the sideways built flooring with the square mosaic cutout in the center. A great way to create a detailed rug without adding extra depth. Now if only Bilbo can only find some time to finish planning his birthday party.
