LEGO architects David Frank and Alice Finch teamed up to create this amazing masterpeice that lays out the elven outpost of Revendell from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The Brothers Brick recently interviewed the two builders on how the incredibly detailed structure came together.

The Brothers Brick: What did you struggle with the most?

Alice and David: One of the major challenges with this build was making the buildings truly fit into their setting. Usually when you design a building, you do just that — you do the structure first and then fit it into its setting. In this case, we did all the landscaping first, which involved some significant elevation change and quite a few waterfalls.

Memers Come Together In Support Of Cancer-Stricken Actor Stefan Karl Stefansson

According to a tearful Facebook update from his wife, Lazytown actor and meme icon Stefán Karl Stefánsson is battling the final stages of Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. The aggressive illness is not responding to treatments, and has spread to his liver, gallbladder and bile duct. Upon hearing the news that the star's "candle burns quickly," the r/dankmemes community has responded with an outpouring of positive messages and memes in support of the Icelandic actor. 

This isn't the first time the internet has shown up for Stefánsson. His illness was first announced in October 2016 - and his GoFundMe reached over $75,000 of its $80,000 goal in just one month. The response from the internet, especially the meme community, was enormous - and the campaign resulted in Robbie Rotten's title of 2016's meme of the year. 

Our thoughts are with his family, friends and fans during this difficult time.
