I haven’t read Tunnels by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams but this massive LEGO creation by Caleb Schilling makes me think that I need to pick up a copy of the book right now. I mean, nobody would build a 5 1/2 foot tall LEGO creation based on a book that wasn’t worth reading, right?
According to Caleb, this LEGO creation weighs 80 pounds and separates into multiple sections. I can’t get over the sheer size of this thing. And it’s not just impressive because it’s huge, it’s also incredibly detailed! Each layer has a unique feel. The base features nicely-done brick-built versions of the first two book covers. I love the rockwork on the first subterranean layer and the creepy tan layer (called the “Pore”), and the train, and the underground city… ugh. I’ve got to read this book.
For more photos of Caleb’s incredible creation, check out Flickr and for those visiting Brickworld Chicago this year, you’ll be able to see this behemoth in person!
