Lego bricks present endless possibilities – space ships, giant waves, and the ability to tell a classic fantasy tale in bricks.
Lego Builder Thorsten Bonsch has done several series of dioramas based on books and pop culture – Harry Potter, HP Lovecraft, DC, Marvel, and Doctor Who to name a few. His most recent project is a re-telling of The Hobbit by building the major plot points as Lego dioramas – 43 in total.
The work put into these is really impressive. Bonsch used existing pieces and has managed to create trees with bending boughs, arches, and brick-built beasts including Smaug’s head. These are a few highlights, the entire series can be seen here.
