With the help of one of our favorite builders, Carl Greatrix, who is a designer for TT, a launch brick from The Hobbit has found its way to the eBay marketplace.

The auction for the exclusive and extremely rare launch brick continues until this Thursday and the price is sure to top $1000 USD. All proceeds will be used to purchase Lego sets for sick kids, so get your wallet out.
