Happy Hobbit Day!

It's Hobbit Day! September 22 is the date of both Bilbo and Frodo Baggins' birthdays (though 78 years apart), and also the date of the Long Expected Party that comes at the start of the Lord of the Rings. A few years ago Jonas Kramm built this Hobbiton scene, including party preparations. Check this out along with all of Jonas' work on Flickr and then discuss it in our forum.
Colossal Battle Contest
21 IX 16

The Colossal Battle Contest is in full swing in the LEGO War group over on Flickr. Categories exist for "epic siege", "ultimate battle", and "final duel", with lots of great prizes. The deadline is fast approaching (September 30), so you should get building. It's not exclusively castle, but most of the organizers and participants are well known castle builders.

Such a nice peaceful little hamlet by Tim Goddard. Everyone is waking up and getting about the day's business. Little do they know what's coming ...

The Bricks to the Past builders are known for epic collaborations. I'm excited to see what they reveal at the Great Western Brick Show in a couple of weeks. From Tim's hints, I don't think it will be so peaceful.

Check out all of Tim's creations on Flickr and then discuss this scene in our forum.

Arrr, mateys. It be Talk like a Pirate Day! I wanted to post something appropriate and found this.

Check this out along with lots of other great scenes by Jack M on Flickr and then discuss it in our forum.

Cogsworth and Lumière - Toys R Us build

Fairy tales count as "castle", right? Toys R Us stores in the United States are having two in-store building events this month. Build and take home Cogworth tomorrow (Saturday the 17th) and Lumière next week (Saturday the 24th). Unfortunately those in the rest of the world this appears to be US-only, but check your local Toys R Us. In Australia there's a Nexo Knights build on the 24th, for instance. News found via FBTB. If you attend, be sure to take some pictures and share them in our forum.
15 IX 16

Meet Sir Falcon d'Black. Who is he, you ask? He's the hero of the Classic Castle Progressive Vigstory. What's he up to, you ask? Well, that's up to you. Dig a Falcon out of your collection and build a vignette, a small scene on an 8x8 or 10x10 footprint, and add to the Classic Castle Progressive Vigstory.
Great Wall of China
4 IX 16

The existing Great Wall of China was mostly built during the Ming Dynasty, 1368-1644, as protection against invasion from nomadic groups living to the north. Here Andy Hung and Iki Lai depict a section near Beijing. Yes, look closer, that's a LEGO mosaic. Andy and Iki are members of the Hong Kong LEGO group LegendBricks. You can see all of Andy's MOCs on Flickr and then discuss this mosaic in our forum.
Qar Riva
3 IX 16

Tirrell Brown built this amazing fortress for the Guilds of Historica, Qar Riva. Here is the description:

Qar Riwa is a fortress located along one of the tributaries of the Qar-Arkhan River in southeast Kaliphlin, An ancient and weathered fortress originally under the control of the Desert King, he has allowed High Council soldiers to take over manning it. In the past, it was a outpost along the frontier of the Desert King's empire, but these days, it's main purpose is to guard and maintain the integrity of a spring that sits farther up the canyon, which serves as the start of the tributary. The waters provide irrigation to a few small villages nearby, which in turn serve as reliable rest stations in the vast sea of sand.

Check this out along with all of Tirrell's MOCs on Flickr and then discuss it in our forum.
Today in History: Great Fire of London
2 IX 16

350 years ago today a fire started in the bakery of Thomas Farriner on Pudding Lane in London. It quickly spread, and over four days it gutted much of medieveal London, destroying between eighty and ninety percent of the homes. James Pegrum, aka Peggyjdb in our forum, depicted the fire as part of his History of Britain series of MOCs. Check this out along with all of James' work on Flickr and then discuss it in our forum.
