Bag End

Aha, I found another person's photos from BrickBash and here's a good photo of Sharon's (?) Bag End.

Story Tower

A story tower is a series of vignettes stacked on top of each other that, when viewed in sequence, tell a story. For the record, I'd personally rather just see the separate vigs, since putting them together vertically makes photography more difficult. Anyway, here Christopher Baldacci presents the Fellowship of the Ring, going from Frodo at Bag End to the Departure of Boromir.

I've been waiting for this to go online. Earlier this month, Blake Baer and Jack Bittner brought their collaborative Rivendell MOC to BrickFair, and now they've finally put it up on MOCpages.

Helm's Deep

Here is Sharon's Battle of Helm's Deep. You can also see the Prancing Pony in the back and just the edge of Bag End, presumably also by Sharon(?).

A builder named Sharon displayed a number of great Lord of the Rings MOCs at BrickBash earlier this year. If someone could direct me to her personal Flickr/Brickshelf/MOCpage, I'd be much obliged. Anyway, here is her Rivendell.

Heroica Middle Earth

Johannes Maaßen has a fun idea, to recreate locations from the Lord of the Rings in the LEGO Heroica style. These are MOCs in themselves, but could also be used in Heroica gaming. Here is his Weathertop. Note that it has the little campfire in a hollow below the summit, then steps up to the ruins at the top.

Here is the Golden Hall of Meduseld.

My favorite, though, is the Ithilien Crossroads. Note the detail of the decapitated statue of the kings, with the head lying off to the side with a crown of flowers.

Once two strangers went up Weathertop, lookin' for a moonshine still.
Sorry, wrong hill.
TheBrickAvenger built this great scene of the attack on Weathertop.

John 55555 imagines what his Orthanc would look like as an official set. I think John 55555 actually did the MOC and Brickthing helped put together the box art.
