Middle Earth comes to Chicago! Brickworld 2011.
The Journey of the Fellowship, 2011.
About this creation
The Lord of the Rings, Journey of the Fellowship. A collaborative build made by a group of MOCpages friends. A year in the making, hundreds of thousands of bricks and together we spanned FIVE countries!

This layout really stole the entire show! There was never a moment during the public days that there was nobody standing in front of it with their jaw on the floor. I saw so many mouthed "wow!" as they stood there staring at Minis Tirith or Baraduur (I know, nasty spelling attempt on those but I don't really care, please see disclaimer on this moc here ) and then double takes as they all realised the layout carried on all the way down the table and around the corner too!

I wont be apologizing for the amount of photos here because the amount of time and effort that went into every build deserves no less. But to save you all I will keep my commentary to the bare minimum. Enjoy your trip into Middle Earth... in LEGO!


Hobbiton, by Tyler Halliwell.


At the Sign of the Prancing Pony, by me.


This was an afterthought, made by Tyler and Mr Tyler's dad and a few others like Kelsey and Dennis Price. It helped to fill in some empty space and was a real talking point.


Rivendell, by Dave Kaleta.








Mines of Moria, by Lee Jones.












Isengard, by Chris Phipson. Argh!!! I forgot to get more photos of this!


Ents, by Shannon Ocean.




Edoras, by Dennis Price.






Helms Deep, by Tyler Halliwell.






Minas Tirith, by Mark Kelso and Chris Phipson.


















The Battle of Pelennor Fields, figures provided by Lee Jones, made by everybody, even random strangers got in on the act!









I forgot to get photos of Osgiliath!!!


Minas Morgual, by Dave Sterling.










The Black Gate, by Heath Flor.










Mount Doom, by Anthony Dunne.






Barad dur by Kevin J Walter.







A massive thanks to Mitzi and Kelsey Price, Danette, Maddie and Daniel Jones, George Kemper, Mr Halliwell (sorry, forgot your first name, you are just Tyler's awesome Dad to me) and the rest of the happy helpers whose names I do not know that spent their own free time sitting on the floor putting their heart and soul into creating this awesome exhibit.

GO MOCPAGES YEAH!

This is absolutely amazing! Everything is so fantastically well made. Ive been looking through quite a few LotR MOC's. A lot of them reeeeeally suck. It's nice to see some with actual effort put into them.

I don't agree with this being accurate to the movies/films, but... I admire your methods of designing; very clean and dandy.

Umm...I wasn't even there and my jaw is pretty much on the floor. Wow! Well done everyone! Rivendell is awesome! That's a hard place to build in my opinion. And Kelso and Phippson's Minis Tirith is mind blowing! And Baradur is absolutely incredible, and everything else is simply stunning too. Go Bree! Bravo!

First off, this is amazing work. What doesn't make sense to me is that this was in Chicago. On the 25th, I was in the Metra hub in Chicago and found a random group of people with shirts saying "iLEGO". We were talking and they said this event wasn't in Chicago but in somewhere else in Illinois. Did I miss this when I was there? Sorry about the long comment, I'm a bit confused here.

I am happy to see that your pictures turned out so clearly! Your skill with a camera does the builds justice. I am truly shocked by the amount of coordination between the builders and quality of the builds. MOCpages rules!

Ugh, see THIS is what I'm talking about, your pictures always come out better than anyone else's; must be Kiwi magic. Seriously though, it's wonderful to see the angles and viewpoints you noticed and captured. Also, and honor to be part of a build along side you :)

Wow you got some stunning pics of our collaboration! It was such an honor and pleasure to hang out with everyone and join forces like Voltron to squach the competition! I can't wait to do it all over again next year! :P As for Kevin and I secretly sharing info.....didn't happen. In fact Kevin fully thought the black gate was the tiny teaser I sent you all, and it was the first question he asked in the rental car parking lot when they picked me up. LMAO However, we did use references from the same place that designed models for table top games. I think that really helped to bring the two to match up nicely.

The most beautiful part was how we all came together to make this happen - it was a pleasure sharing the experience with everyone. Lee.

It amazes me how we're all basically posting the "same thing" but every post is so different. The different perspectives really give a sense of the overall feeling of the event. Thanks for sharing! ~ Chris.

I knew you were getting awesome shots that morning! Every time I thought about getting good pics something else came up and I didn't do it. Now there's one less thing for me to post! Thanks for these great shots and congrats on your well-deserved award for the Pony.

I can't thank you enough for these GREAT shots. Since I wasn't able to be there, I've had to live vicariously through everyone else. But I obviously couldn't get any photos, and these pics have really given me a wonderful sense of how our work all came together. I've copied them for my personal files, and they will be TREASURED! Thank you so much, Mills! (hope ya get home soon!)
