A LEGO representation of Bilbo Baggins' famous fictional Hobbit hole have been faithfully recreated in an incredible two million LEGO-brick construction.

Joining Bilbo on the 'life-sized' diorama is the wizard Gandalf and five dwarves: Thorin, Bombur, Balin, Bofur and Dwalin - all built as giant LEGO minifigs.

The model took 12 people 3,000 hours to make.
