Oh! This is absolutely lovely. It will be even better with the Bag End set in december. The stage is nice such as the windows of Bag End. I also appreciate the mini map you created, it makes me think of those board games. Really congratulation for your 3rd place!

A lovely MOC and by far the best location in the trilogy in my opinion.

Great MOC indeed. Good use of bricks for landscaping. The burrows look how I would expect them to.

Keep up the good work. Congrats on the 3rd place!

Nice work.

I really like the depiction of Bilbo's birthday preparation.  The landscaping is quite understated which works very well here.  I really think you did a bang up job on the canopy and the various party items.  I'm looking forward to seeing what else you're going to come up with.

I love this!  :thumbup:  The map, Bag End, everything! It all looks great and I spotted some great building techniques too, like the bucket handles used as chair legs. And I love the map at the beginning, it almost makes me want to see someone make an entire Lego map of middle-earth.

This is incredible! I think my favorite part might be the interior of Bilbo's hobbit hole. All the little details are so much fun; I spent quite a bit of time going over each picture.

Congratulations on placing!

Great job on this!  I think what strikes me the most is just how sprawling it is, and how it encompasses the whole party.  I too love the use of the bucket handles for benches.  Excellent work!

This MOC looks simply wonderful! :wink: I always wanted to see a MOC of Hobbiton here on EB, and finally the wait is over.

The scenery is just amazing. All the flowers and plants here and there add subtle detail and I really like how leafy the tree is. The decorations for Bilbo's 111st Birthday are great, especially the tents.

The burrows look stunning. I especially liked seeing your version of Bag End, since the official set is coming out soon. The furnishing with all the accesories give the burrow a very homely feel. So I must say, excellent work on this MOC. Keep up the MOCing and I hope to see many more superb MOCs soon. :sweet:

Just beautiful! The landscaping looks very nice and I think you captured the "Shire-look" very well. I think the scene looks kind of empty, though. It's a big diorama and I'd imagine the party area would be packed with hobbits preparing things.

Are those bucket handles you used for the benches? I like that idea a lot!

Amazing job. Very well done. And "only" third prize. Now I'll have to find out what made numbers one and two...
