Mar 31 2009Wow: Minas Tirith Recreated In Matchsticks

matches 1.jpg

Minas Tirith, the City of Kings from J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings trilogy is painstakingly being recreated using matchsticks by wood-loving Patrick Acton. The project started in March, 2007, and Patrick expects to be completed by late 2010. Good looking, Pat, say -- mind if I do a j? *whoosh* Oh, uh-oh.

Hit the jump for several more of the progress and a link to Patrick's work-in-progress page.

Minas Tirith! [matchstickmarvels]

Thanks to Tod, who once made a matchstick model of giant matchstick and then used it to light the world's biggest spliff. *sniff* Bob would have been so proud.

First !!!!

FIRE!

Holy cow. The dude would be more hardcore if he would have used toothpicks.

FIRST LOL

Yeah this one is authentic.

PON POT PATA PON!

the only meaningfull question here is; can we burn it when its complete?

I bet the local supermarket was very pleased!

...Recreated*

D: I thought GW was infoulable!

What's the next step!? Cross the ocean with this!?

Also this is amazing !

This guy must have unlimited patient!

Ding Dang! That's awesome

Rereated? I'll have to try using that more often. :)

After he completed this he got a divorce!??

Haw, Chris. I seen which u done their

That's a bummer man...

CHAKA CHAKA PATA PON!

Which insurance company is brave enough to insure this!?

not bad....but now let's see the incomplete death star. and make it snappy.

Cool, it kind of reminds me of the tower in the begining of Civ3:

Tear it down or burn it down right now! Then recreate the tower from Civ3.

i am impressed... though what does one do with it when it is done

probably ignite just one of the matches. like a much cooler version of dominoes.

FOR GONDOR!!!!

...the things people do with their time, amazing. I'd think commenting on geekologie is time wasted much more productively than that

Little termites wearing orc helmets and armor will attack this at dawn.

@ 2 and 26 you both stole my thoughts mind freaks

Holy free holy. Bravo Patrick!

Erm, it's missing several levels... Why go to this much trouble if you're not going to actually replicate the city?

Its always comforting to see there is still people with less life than yours

(F U C K)

(I nearly forgot)

matchsticks?

Wouldn't this be better if it were lego's?

@33

Well no.. because it will be infinitely more fun to burn the shit to the ground once completed/sold to a lotr fan.

u do realize tht ur missing a few levels right??? well, ur gonna have 2 be punished...*lights match*
@26 dont worry, i got a small army has well. ATTACK MY MINIONS!!

FAKE!!!!

This is a complete photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all worng.

This is exactly like that scene in the movie Never Back Down where Max stole a crystal from supermans fortress of solitude, and threw a splinter from it into the lake in a train set, ruining the entire house.

When he's done, Rohan will answer!

Actually it could be a pretty sweet holiday decoration. Add some little motors and tiny people, you've got the best light up miniature village of everyone who loves miniature villages. Or in this case miniature fantastical fortresses.

@ 29 and 34

If you guys read the f'n blog you'd know it's missing levels because he's not done yet.....

retards....

wow, that's one hell of a hobby...

@37

Sorry, no. There ought to be more levels in the model as shown.

Exceptional talent, now apply it towards something outside of your basement which will get you laid!

did he already have specs for this from the internet or did he actually start from scratch? impressive either way...

P.S.
you guys did a really good job on that castle.

#42 -- I'm sorry, but you'll need to state your position a bit more plainly if you want people to understand the message. I just can't figure out what you're trying to get across here.

"All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you."

And he failed.

*Screeech*
So all i need is to cross a bat with a gecko, and i'll have my nazguul... He may want to start putting in mini catapults and defenses.. My ants are FIRE ANTS.

Don't worry, Pat old boy, nobody thinks you're a dork with no life.

Holy geek. That's gotta be a Guiness Record-caliber toothpick-made model. Also a Guiness-caliber harm to the environment. I'd say 100 trees suffered for that.
(:

hi and good

far out man..kaff kaff.. far fuc|<ing out man

This is badass- and yet another thing I think is cool that I don't have the time/patience for.

To the ppl saying it's missing levels - build your own version. Then we will tell you what isn't perfect about it. If it is somehow perfect, we will flame you for being perfect. Thank you.

42 - You are officially fired from the internet. Please turn in your badge on the way out.

I salute you, Mr. 51st commenter. May I recieve his badge? Mine got lost upon the process of building my own match-stick model of the two towers..

The magnificent masterpiece! So much time and patience invested, because of love for the LOTR thematic.

omg looks cool as, good job to him man

WHAT IS THIS? A STRONGHOLD FOR ANTS?!?

It needs to be at least.... three times this size!!

Wow, that is awesome. did it take a lot of time to do it or did it change color/fade as it was being built. I hope he doesn't have any pets as my doggie avvo would love to leave his mark. My friend linde does projects like this although lindo doesn't like castles she will build sky scrapers.

Smart guy.,...how will you get it out of your basement? What do you use for glue? Didn't your mother tell you you will go blind? You already wear glasses and the hairy palm thing is not helping you get laid either.

to the few people that are acusing this guy of missing levels re-read the post, fifnished in 2010! use ur eyes!

What does "LOTOR" mean?

That's so awesome I wish I could do that

Its so wonderfull!!

http://matchstickmarvels.com/Comingin2009.htm

Looks like its been out of his garage already...

Oh and it says hes used 360,000 matchsticks thus far on this model. Wow and he did Hogwarts (from Harry Potter) which was just over 600,000 matchsticks. Guy is hardcore for sure!

@26 - Funniest comment on the post, by far. You rock!

I'm not impressed. Now, if he could talk Liv Tyler into coming over to check it out, slip her a Mickey, and score, well, then I'd be impressed. And jealous!

I love the Big Lebowski reference... I, for one, do *not* mind if you do a J.

i wonder what happens if somebody lights it up

how cool would it be to catapult a flaming baseball at this thing....?

what is up with everyone and wanting to see this amazing creation destroyed? i can only imagine how it would feel for someone to break in and destroy it.

only one thing left (and i dont know if he plans to do it or not) after hes done.
paint it.

Can come over and burn down your town for s its and giggles.Please povide address

Hey why is this site even here? What is the point of citique ing other people? For laughs? Pretty cruel if you ask me (though no one did, I don't care anyway) I found this site by accident and so I don't understand the point.........

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SOMETHING NICE TO SAY DO NOT SAY ANYTHING
didn't your parents teach you anything!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!

Are you want to own the cheapest Apple and Iphone?

It's a good idea .Thank you.

Hey i was thinking abought making a modil of this as well. im wondering what u used for demensions. really amazing model. im not going to make mine out of the same material though, so dont worry im not a coppycat.im just wondering what the measermints shouled be. thanks

It's safe to say that this man is my hero.

He finalized it now.

Look here: http://www.matchstickmarvels.com/MinasTirith.htm

He used 420.000 sticks to complete this awesome work.

Man, i never could do such!

Seems like these 76 comments were made by four people not including my one post.

LAST!!!!

35 are you completely and utterly stupid?! You have seen him build it bit by bit if you researched him and this a little. I must admit it would be nice to see something like this burn but Minas Tirith should stand forever and what a hero. Screw Aragorn and Gandalf this man is the brute of men! What I would pay to be an ant in that place right now <3
