How Much Would It Cost to Build 17 Famous Movie Homes in Lego?

With The Lego Movie coming out this week, our friends at Movoto switched up from their usual practice of valuing famous movie real estate to valuing the Lego bricks required to make said famous movie houses.

They determined how big famous movie dwellings actually are and then figured out how many Lego bricks it would take to make a full-size recreation of these buildings. Whether building it in Legos or brick and mortar, it’s not cheap to do build a big home.
