    I've been drooling over that build for the last few days. Thats one of the more impressive mocs I've seen and not just because its so huge.

    Alice must have an absurd LEGO budget between this and the Hogwarts. And that doesn't even count anything else. I'm sure she's got other projects.

    200k pieces at $.10 each would be $20,000. Probably a decent ballpark figure. Though I suppose they probably acquired a lot through bulk buy. Perhaps she has access to the other special direct from LEGO deal like Sawaya and some others do

    Saw this in person at the Brickcon back in October, it was beyond awesome.

    Wow!
    Absolute eye candy!
    That is one fantastic MOC.
    Look at all the detail, the colours, the design.

    Uhh, now that would just be abuse...

    Next you'll be wanting all the parts in a single huge gaylord pallet container mixed together?

    Just beat me now... :)

    This gives you an idea:

    Size-wise, it's 10 feet by 5 feet.
    Mentioned at the end of this article at Brothers Brick.

    Apparently there are multiple Darth Vaders used as Nazgul. Why not just use the Nazgul?

    It's a stunning build, not just size but detail. Although I find it a little garish. Not much they can do about the Lego colour pallette though.

    Great model, and also a great advert for one of the myriad and until now unknown benefits of lego building.

    "Before Lego I was just considered a geek... but 200,000 bricks and a giant moc later, I got arms like this!"

    See, now I know what to show the ladies, when they give me the disdainful 'You collect what?' look.

    *show picture*

    'Oh my, yes. Let's buy you more bricks!'

    Yeah... that'll happen now.

    :oD

    (Joking aside, great moc).
