My life-size LEGO replica of Andúril (‘Flame of the West’), the royal sword of Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings.
The replica sword is 52.9″ / 134cm long and is durable enough (with its multilayered plate construction) to be held at any angle without breaking. Inside-out rubber tires form the ‘leather’ grip and also reinforce the connection between the blade and hilt.
As an optional display format, I designed the blade to separate into six sections to recreate the ‘Shards of Narsil’, the broken version of the sword in the movie before it is reforged into Andúril for The Return of the King.
