The LEGO Movie poked fun at the home of Middle Earth by calling us Middle Zealand. Here is our response, with a perfect rendition of a very desirable piece of shire accommodation, Bag End. Immaculately presented (as the realtors say) this build captures the opening of Peter Jackson's wonderful films.
For those currently in New Zealand, the Hobbiton set in Matamata is a pleasant couple of hours drive from Auckland where you can experience a full sized hobbit hole. For everyone else, here is a precious little Bag End you can hold in the palm of your hand.
This model has been created by AuckLUG member Kyle Donegan. Kyle is an avid collector and builder in the Star Wars and Lord of the Rings LEGO themes. Kyle also does incredible camerawork at LEGO shows, so if you are impressed at a photo on our AuckLUG site, there is a pretty good chance it is one of Kyle's.
