• This bird is one of my favourite aspects, just for the visual effect it adds in the photo. - LukeClarenceVan
  • Really? I bird? You favorite aspect of this build? Please tell me your joking :P - Carson Hart
  • Really awesome use of this basketball hoop! - CaptainInfinity
  • How this trickles in, then pools and collects, then surges out, is just amazing! - Hayden,
  • So, the question is.. Who built which side? ;) - Mark of Falworth
  • the sense of motion on the waterfalls is amazing!! - Gabe Umland
  • Ahahaah I think Blake built the smaller side ;) - Hayden,
  • I noticed this in another photo but I really love the sand red mixed in with the rocks. - Carson Hart
  • I said one of my favourite aspects, not the only. ;) I just think that it really looks great in this photo and adds a bit of diversity. Naturally I'll notice dozens of other favourites in the close-up photos. - LukeClarenceVan
  • I'm not sure.. Maybe we can provoke a response if we keep talking about it.. ;) - Mark of Falworth
  • They were built by the same person. Some of you who build large scale will tell you that LEGO tends to bend and warp under weight. Such is the case here. The gap is unavoidable unfortunately.
  • Saw the WIPs on MOCpages, would never have guessed it was in 8 pieces! Great job! :) - Mark of Falworth
  • Love all the trees! - ƒernald
  • Not only that, the slight differences in high stack, and 0,01 mm per brick can amass to 1 mm if you go 100 bricks high :( A real problem if you are connecting bridges or roof that high... - Angeli ¥
  • Great water technique, it really portrays the differences in depth and movement. - Evan D41

Rivendell

Newer Older

"Dear Flickr,

Due to both of our unique interests in Lord of the Rings and our supreme passion for the LEGO brick, we decided to combine them into a creation for Brickfair 2012. This was our second time collaborating on a creation (our first collaborative being Amon Hen), and this was definitely the largest, hardest, and most fun project that either of us have worked on. Because of our unique building styles, we complemented each other well and used the best of both our talents to great effect. We chose Rivendell because of its beautiful landscape, its iconic nature, and the fact that it will be in the upcoming Hobbit movie trilogy. It is our hope that you will enjoy the natural beauty and our creative gifts as expressed in this artistic representation of Rivendell, from the Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Signed,
Blake Baer, 16, and Jack Bittner, 16

Well fellas, here she is, The reason why I haven't posted much in the past 4 months. Those of you who were at Brickfair (or saw pics from Brickfair) will recognize this (hopefully). Its impossible to really sum up my experience with this creation in words. Words would fail me both in length and eloquence to express my sentiments about this MOC.

I think I will leave it here for now. I'll write some more a bit later so be sure to check back a later date for a more updated description.

It is our greatest hope that you guys will enjoy this. Please leave a comment letting us know what you think.

And as always, SOLI DEO GLORIA!
-Blake

    this is great but could you build something that wasn't in the films like Gondolin because i think you could make a pretty awesome MOC of that.
