If you didn't think Wes Anderson films could be any more charming, this LEGO Grand Budapest Hotel recreation is likely to prove you wrong. Built by Ryan Ziegelbauer and his team, the illustrious hotel celebrates the June 17th DVD and Blu-ray release of the Grand Budapest Hotel.

Ziegelbauer and his eight other model builders are all die-hard Wes Anderson fans, putting in 575 hours to build the LEGO Grand Budapest Hotel. More than 50,000 LEGO bricks were used in the construction of the model, which were gathered from wholesale retailers and LEGO collectors in Germany, Italy Latvia, Lithuania, Poland as well as 14 different states across America.

The remarkably accurate LEGO Grand Budapest Hotel is a scaled down version of the one depicted in the movie. Tony Revolori, who played Zero, even helped with some of the finishing touches.
