From 150 million tiny pieces, through the hands of designers, we have a Lego work of a lifetime.
The Guinness Book of World has just certified an unprecedented record regarding the largest Lego creation. With 150 million pieces, this work called Diarama is the largest Lego construction of all time.
New world record for Lego Lord of the Rings set
To complete this work, the construction team had to mobilize up to 50 professional designers along with more than 3 years of hard work. From 150 million tiny pieces, through the hands of designers, we have a Lego work of a lifetime.
This Diorama construction is inspired by the various battles depicted in The Lord of the Rings, and it is truly a sight to behold. Diorama includes a number of iconic places in Middle-earth such as the Pelennor Fields, the Black Gate, and many other familiar sites.
If Journey to the West is considered to be the Four Great Books of China, one of the most influential literary works in Asia, The Lord of the Rings also has a similar stature in Europe. This can be considered an important foundation for later classics such as Warcraft, Diablo or many other Western role-playing games.
