Massive Undertaking~ the Shire from Rushock Bog to The Marish, Greenfields to Michel Delving
With Unexpected Gathering apparently retiring and prices being fairly reduced, my wife and I have decided to undertake building the Shire in full scale as it appeared in the LEGO LotR video game. We'll post pictures as we go and ask for help as needed. Right now, we could use any 79003 sets bought by minifig collectors and can trade (at thus point, buy over the next several months) to get you what you need for what we need. Could also use elvish arches like those found in 79017 since those more closely resemble what's found inside Bag End instead of the brown arches which come with UG.
We're also discussing whether it would be better to start off with a Technic superstructure to rough out the lay of the land or to solid brick build it. I'm sure the Technic route would be much more cost effective and help speed the project on better, but it would be nice to hear from people experienced in building a structure like this.
So, yeah. Day 1. Trees from Endor sets and 79002 as well as a proper Bag End to design that doesn't resemble a green Hobbit mobile home!
