LEGO Announces New Art Range

Are you a very serious adult LEGO fan, looking for some artwork to class up your house? LEGO has you covered with this new range of artistic creations.

lego-art-announcement

The LEGO art range is a collection of 48×48 stud mosaic builds that will each set you back $200 here in Australia. Each set has parts to build a few different variations – for example the Iron Man set will allow you to build on of three suits. The Iron Man and Sith sets allow you to create larger mosaics if you choose to buy 3 of those particular sets.

To enhance the building experience each set comes with a podcast to listen to while you create your set.

If that wasn’t enough to get you over the line each set includes a new double width brick separator!

Yoda Didn’t Survive Triple Force Friday

Yesterday was Triple Force Friday and I completely forgot to post about it. Which isn’t too bad because the Triple Force Friday promotional set is still available. What isn’t still available is 75255 Yoda, with the set not lasting the day. I did not expect that set to sell out at all.

Here’s what’s on offer in terms of promotions

LEGO Announces 75244 Tantive IV

Star Wars Celebration 2019 is well underway and to celebrate LEGO have today announced 75244 Tantive IV.

75244_prod

The Tantive IV has the honour of being the first ship ever seen on screen, appearing in the opening scene of A New Hope.

This LEGO recreation features 1768 pieces and 5 minifigures – Bail Organa, Princess Leia, Captain Antilles, C-3PO and a Rebel Fleet Trooper, plus an R2-D2.

The biggest point of contention for fans may be the branding behind this set. It’s not marked as UCS or MBS. It also lacks the 20th anniversary branding. It seems a little odd.

The set will officially be available May 3rd for $329.99.

Check out the full gallery and press release below.
