Massive LORD OF THE RINGS Mini Brick Display Sets World Record
The best thing about Guinness World Records is that anyone can get their name in this prestigious book. With enough skill, enough tenacity, or enough money, you can officially establish yourself as the best at a certain task. However, if you want to win the title of “Greatest Mini Brick Build” of all time, you are definitely going to need some help. A massive and record breaking diorama in China required a whole team of people working for years with a lot of small parts. The only thing more epic than this business is the source they drew inspiration from; this incredible spectacle was inspired by the battles of The Lord of the Rings.
Guinness World Records announced that as of January 10, the Smaerd Land Children’s Museum in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China has the largest interlocking plastic brick diorama in history. A work of this epic required a corresponding theme. For this, the team opted for Middle-earth by JRR Tolkien. Fans of the franchise will recognize some memorable places and events from the novels and movies. By not just making this room a static one, which would have been quite impressive, the diorama has an energy to match the work that was done.
But it would be impossible to understand everything with a short video, or even a visit to the museum. You can watch this for hours and not see all the details that went into it.

It’s no surprise that a project of this magnitude, measuring 2,060 square feet, required Herculean effort from the people who built it. In total, 50 designers and masons spent three long years assembling the display. This included the installation of 150 million (yes, million) parts.
Obviously, it was all worth it. Not just because they were part of the Guinness World Records book; something so amazing is truly precious.
