Awesome. if lego don't take it up, think of selling the parts list and plans online. I'd buy a set! although I'd struggle to create a setting as amazing as yours!

Well smack me round the face with a wooden tricycle and call me Susan - this is fantastic! I don't where to begin - the shaping, the technique, thee detail, the lights - I'm blown away. Not to mention the time and effort that must have gone into this - the hard work has more than paid off.

Wow! This shouldn't be on WWW.mocpages.com, it should be on WOW.mocpages.com! It reminds me of the LEGO displays I used to see as a kid in the super-large department store toy departments of the 70s at xmas. A lot of work went into this and it shows. Magnificent!

This may be THE most amazing Lego MOC I have ever been privileged to lay eyes upon. That is true eye-candy, a gorgeous diorama like none I've ever seen. I am in awe of the water's crystal texture, the gently-warped brick paths, the lovely bridges and buildings, and the awe-inspiring peaks. If I were a Lego minifigure (a thought that entertains me more than it should), I now know where I would want to live. Rivendell, among the elves, where everything is frozen in perfect plastic serenity. This is superb. I can't say enough!

Ok, it seems as if everyone I know on Mocpages has commented here and well... This deserves it! I'm not sure tan is the best color for it but, still, AWESOME BUILD!!! I don't think I'm going to post the old Rivendell I built a while ago. It makes me cry.

Wow! A real masterpiece! I'd put it right up there with Blake's and Jack's. My favorite part is the waterfalls. They look so real! The detailing throughout is also fantastic! Very, very impressive! Brilliant work on this MOC!

It is hard to photograph slope rockwork without the white glares, especially with pointed lighting. The build is gread, but the presentation could use work.

That is pretty wonderful. Love the mountaintops and the various waterfalls. The construction of the waterfalls is especially impressive. I'm not sure how one picks out the "shape" of a waterfall, but you seem to have done just that. My favorite part of this build is, of course, the architecture. Each building has that organic look that we all come to expect from the elves of Middle Earth. Really superb piece of work.

Beautiful work. I always love seeing creations on this kind of scale. I particularly like the contrasts between the architectural features and the natural forms. Sometimes that kind of variety is tough to get with the bricks. Some nice angles in the design, as well. Brilliant MOC!

Unbelievable, simply unbelievable. One of the best MOCs ever made. This is by no stretch of the imagination your best build, in my opinion, and deserves to be set as one of the "gold standards" for a stellar creation, one that is a true work of art. What really strikes me about this creation is the fact that the water lights up, giving a beautiful nighttime effect. Love it. You are a truly inspirational builder and I fully congratulate you on this achievement. Watched the time lapse video, too. Outstanding. 5/5! :-)
