‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ LEGO Set Is One Classy Recreation

How do you make the beautiful world of Wes Anderson even more precious? With LEGO, of course. It’s actually surprising that no one thought of this before, but thanks to one clever fan, you can now see The Grand Budapest Hotel from Wes Anderson’s latest flim recreated in charming detail with the help of hundreds upon hundreds of tiny LEGO bricks.

Commissioned by Fox Searchlight, Ryan Ziegelbauer and his team of eight model builders worked tirelessly to recreate The Grand Budapest Hotel in painstaking detail, using more than 50,000 certified LEGO bricks — that’s right, not a single generic brick was used to cheat during this massive undertaking. To source their bricks, the team imported them from Lithuania, Poland, Latvia, Germany, Italy and 14 states in the US to complete this insanely adorable model of The Grand Budapest, and their hard work paid off because the results are absolutely lovely.

The LEGO Grand Budapest Hotel will be unveiled at The Grove retail and entertainment complex in Los Angeles, California, in honor of the film’s June 17th DVD and Blu-ray release, though we should all sign a petition to give this set a mass distribution.
