A Game of Thrones Fan Built a Revolving LEGO Replica of the Red Keep
From a mini-version of the Addams Family mansion to a tiny replica of Leonard and Sheldon's living room from The Big Bang Theory, plenty of LEGO hobbyists have used the plastic toys to immortalize famous TV settings. Now, CNET reports that a creative Game of Thrones fan has paid tribute to the HBO fantasy show by building a small-scale, spinning replica of the Red Keep—the castle at King's Landing—from more than 125,000 LEGO pieces.
Beyond the Brick, a YouTube channel that features LEGO builders and their creations, recently shared the video below. It was made by Claus-Marc Hahn, of LEGO fan website BricksCreations, to show off his impressive Red Keep design.
The GOT-inspired set reportedly took Hahn 800 hours to complete. The final product weighs just over 143 pounds and, with the help of motors, spins like the castle does in the show’s opening credits. And since King's Landing wouldn't be complete without a host of warring characters, the LEGO set has custom mini-figures of the occupying Lannisters, Daenerys Targaryen and her troops of Unsullied soldiers, and more.
