Someone Built A 2.4m Tall LEGO Version Of The Tower Of Orthanc

Someone Built an 8-Foot-Tall LEGO Version of The Tower of Orthanc

You'll need a ladder to fully see everything in Brenden McMahon's LEGO version of Saruman's tower, a.k.a. the Tower of Orthanc, from The Lord of the Rings. The official 2359-piece version isn't small either, but this one makes it look like a holiday cottage.

The tower has nine individual floors with a torture chamber, grand halls, a library and everything a wizard needs. And the whole set is wired for lighting. No wonder it took home the "Best Mega Creation Award" at Brickworld Chicago.

Check out the creator's Flickr gallery for closeups but The Brick Show's video shows all the floors and every little detail as well.

And here's an interview by Beyond the Brick with the creator.


    If an instruction manual is released. I will build it in Lego Worlds, once all pieces get added into the game.

    Most cities and town have Lego groups that do showings of creations - entry is a few dollars. I have a friend who is in the local one and there are several all over Tasmania throughout the year. Very fun to check out, especially if you have kids.
