The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is almost here. Which means we are hitting the peak of The Hobbit fever. BrotherhoodWorkshop went and made the original teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and reshot it, scene for scene in Lego. These type of videos represent a whole lot of work, with many unique Lego scenes and minifigures. The best are almost not noticeable.
For reference check out the original (non-Lego) trailer:
To see exactly how close the Lego Teaser Trailer is to the original Teaser Trailer, make sure to watch this side by side video:
There is still time to catch up on The Hobbit trilogy. Amazon has the first film on Blu-ray, DVD and Streaming: The Hobbit on Amazon.
“Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bar, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a Hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.”
— The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Bag End is Bilbo’s Hobbit-hole from the Hobbit, and Lord of the Rings. It being located in Bagshot Row of Hobbiton. The desire of all the Shire, or at least the Sackville-Bagginses. With the notable green door, and immaculate garden kept by Samwise Gamgee. Bag End may be the most innocent location in all of Middle Earth.
Lego did a great job with their official set, offering just the right amount of detail to feel complete on its own. Bag End is one of the best Lego sets currently available. When built the whole thing inspires people to add to the set. It can easily be expanded upon, and in this case expanded out.
LBaixinho, of Flickr, built this expanded Bag End. With the exception of the larger tree, and crooked fence, the actual Hobbit-Hole is straight from Lego’s set. What LBaixinho did, was offer up a more complete version of Bagshot Row. Filling in a front yard full of vegetables, flowers, roads and paths. Even Gandalf is stopping by, maybe getting ready to set up an Unexpected Gathering.
