Sydney Opera House™ Set (10234) Unveiled

10234 Sydney Opera House

What better way to celebrate the launch of a new Australian LEGO® Blog than with the unveiling of a huge new set that brilliantly captures one of our most iconic landmarks. Some people found the architecture version of the Opera House (set 21012) to be a little disappointing, but this creator expert version is substantially bigger, and better.

The Sydney Opera House is a building known for it’s curves; something that is not one of LEGO’s strengths. From the initial photos it seems designer Jamie Berard has produced a set that has all of those curves just where they should be.

10234 – Sydney Opera House™ will be available in September this year. An Australian price has not been released, but the $US RRP is $319.99.
