Via BoingBoing, it seems that some blogger has made a model of the Battle of Helms Deep inspired by the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy -- using candy. Yes, candy. There are lots more pictures of what this more-than-slightly unhinged guy has done with his xmas vacation time. It sort of leaves you speechless. It really has to be seen to be believed. This guy has an amazing future ahead of him as, well, er, something.
A quote from the original site:
We made some siege machinery as well. The Catapults were Tootsie pops. Leaning against the Jolly Rancher wall is a siege tower made of other tootsie type stuff. There are some red licorice ropes as, well… rope.
