While Belle’s Enchanted Castle is cute, it is nothing compared to this awesome LEGO Beauty and the Beast Castle MOC created by Kevin Hall! Kevin is a professional LEGO brick artists who gets paid to design and build models around the world.
The LEGO Beauty and the Beast Castle MOC was a personal build that took him 6 months to finish. It’s a replica from the original 1991 movie. He created it using approximately half a million bricks. (I can’t even imagine owning half a million bricks.) The build is 2.2 meters high 40,000 (that’s 7.2 feet for us Americans) and it breaks down into pieces so it can fit through a doorway.
In addition, each roof took about 2 days to build! And, for those animation fans, you can see Belle & Beast turn around on dance floor, and a multitude of lights and LEDs lighting up the ballroom and other floors.
Check out this video from Beyond the Brick, where Beyond the Brick’s Joshua Hanlon talks with Kevin Hall about his amazing LEGO Beauty and the Beast Castle at Brick Live Birmingham 2016:
The castle is beautiful, but way too huge for me. I’d love something in between these two sets.
