    Lego Tower of Terror

    Over the past three years, I've been working on the next phase of my Lego Disneyland project. I'm pleased to share with you a sneak-peek at what is to date the biggest single structure I've ever built... the Hollywood Tower Hotel.

    The building is not yet complete; I still have to build the back part of the building. For now, it is mostly a facade. I plan to eventually add in operating elevator doors, a complete queue area, and rig up a falling elevator.

    The structure is not my own design; I looked at a virtual rendering constructed by another Lego enthusiast and adjusted his plan minimally.
    It's been interesting to note that in a virtual Lego world, gravity doesn't exist!

    I've recently been working on more complete front garden areas and an expanded driveway to allow the ToT to be used in some of the other Lego shows I participate in.

    Now that is impressive! I've done some tall towers before, but nothing as massive (width and depth) as that, nor as real looking. Love the Taco Bell down on on the right.

    Can't wait to see it finished.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Very impressive. I love LEGO. How cool would a Disney Theme Park series of LEGO sets be?
