Standing at over 5 feet tall, and having used 55,000 LEGO bricks, he has recreated the entrance of the Lonely Mountain from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. The build includes an invading orc army, two large dwarf statues, and the network of staircases on the inside. The entire build took him 7 months.

For comparison, LEGO’s largest set is Orthanc, which stands under 2 feet tall and has 2359 pieces.
