LEGO The Nine Circles Of Hell From Dantes Inferno

It’s not often we review a MOC (My Own Creation) on Custom Minifig, but we think this one is a bit extra special. Mihai Mihu has created the The nine circles of hell from Dante’s Inferno completely in LEGO.

Inferno is the first part of Dante Alighieri’s 14th-century epic poem Divine Comedy. It is an allegory telling of the journey of Dante through Hell, guided by the Roman poet Virgil. In the poem, Hell is depicted as nine circles of suffering located within the Earth. Allegorically, the Divine Comedy represents the journey of the soul towards God, with the Inferno describing the recognition and rejection of sin.

Romanian artist Mihai Marius Mihu spent seven months recreating the hellish visions of the nine circles of hell from Dante’s Divine Comedy using almost 40,000 Lego bricks.

LIMBO: “A place of monotony, here the souls are punished to wander in restless existence while they moan helplessly in echoes between the ruins of a temple.”

II. LUST: Surrounded by erotic representations, those overcome by lust are forced to watch and experience disgusting things, ultimately being condemned to drown in the menstrual river.

IV. GREED: This pompous place is reserved for the punishment of the greedy ones.

V. ANGER: In this depressing place the souls are trapped in the swamp, they can’t move and they cannot manifest their frustration which is making them even more angry.

VI. HERESY: The giant demon watches closely over his fire pit, dwarfing the damned that are dragging the new arrivals in the boiling lava. Those who committed the greatest sins against God are getting a special treatment inside the temple where they are doomed to burn for eternity in the scorching flames.

IX. TREACHERY: Lucifer lies here chained by the Angelic Seal which keeps him captive in the frozen environment.

Lord Of The Rings Lego Minifigures

We are really excited to be able to show you a sneak preview of The Lord Of The Rings minifigures that will be arriving this summer. Lots of little legs and new short capes!

The Lego Sets feature the minifigures Frodo Baggins, Samwise ‘Sam’ Gamgee, Peregrin ‘Pippin’ Took, Meriadoc ‘Merry’ Brandybuck, with Aragorn, Boromir, Legolas Greenleaf and Gandalf the Grey.

These minifigures will be available in the following Lego sets:

Gandalf Arrives 9469. 2 minifigs – Gandalf and Frodo, Gandalf on horse and cart with fireworks and snake in the back.

Shelob Attacks 9470. 3 minifigs – Frodo, Samwise and Gollom! Gollum looked great, hunched over with movable arms, a bit like skeleton arms but different. Shelob the spider looks fantastic and scary!

Uruk-Hai Army 9471. 6 minifigs – Eomer, Rohan soldier and 4 Urak-Hai. The set consists of a small section of wall, a horse with moving legs and a small siege machine. The wall can be joined to the Helms Deep castle, apparently, so this will make a great battle pack to extend the castle and build your armies.

Attack on Weathertop 9472. 5 minifigs – Frodo, Merry, Aragorn and two Ringwaiths on horseback. The set builds a small section of Weathertop with spiral staircase and ruins at the top.

The Mines of Moria 9473. 7 minifigs – Pippin, Gimli, Legolas, Boromir, a cave troll and two Moria orcs. The set builds a selection of sub-assemblies for mine walls, doors, pedestals etc.

The Battle of Helm’s Deep 9474. 8 minifigs – Gimli, King Theoden, Haldir, Aragorn and 4 Urak-Hai warriors. The castle itself is fairly substantial, complete with the ‘side door’ used to gain entry

The Orc Forge 9476. 5 orcs with a forge, various metalworking tools and weapons.
