This incredible build inspired by Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda has to go down as one of the most amazing feats of engineering ever in Lego world.

Featured at this year’s BrickFair in Virginia, the creator behind this Hyrule Castle, 19-year-old Joseph Zawada talks with Beyond the Brick about the build. It took him two and a half years to create the castle, inspired by his favorite Nintendo game, The Legend of Zelda — Twilight Princess.

Zawada said the roof was the toughest part of the design, since Legos tend to be bricks, he had to work to get the round shape. He also had to source rare Lego materials from Scandinavia to complete it. Constructed with millions of pieces, Zawada said the entire structure breaks down into “40 pieces” and takes about two cars to transport.
