Here at BrickNerd we like to reminisce about the past. . . This time in Middle-earth!
"Splashes and splashes, precious! That's a meaty mouthful!" Thanks to Iain Heath (Ochre Jelly on Flikr) we have one of the finest recreations of Bilbo Baggins and the infamous Gollum I have ever seen. Iain never ceases to amaze with his outstanding characters built out of LEGO elements, and these two are no exception. The shaping of Gollum is well executed, and I especially like the loincloth and eyes. Bilbo's clothing is also represented so very well with simple elements! For lack of a better word, every creation Iain produces always has character. The posing and emotion he is able to capture is truly inspiring. I hope to see more builds like this in the future! Iain's Gollum creation is also briefly featured in the LEGO Brickumentary.
