LEGO have today revealed 21342 The Insect Collection. This LEGO Ideas set features three separate builds that each showcase a life sized brick built insect (there are also a few extra insects hidden too).
The three builds are a Blue morpho butterfly and a honeybee; Hercules beetle; and Chinese mantis and a seven-spotted ladybug.
I know that not everybody is a fan of insects but the execution here is outstanding.
Australian RRP for this set is $124.99 and you’ll be able to get it from September 4th for VIPs, or September 7th for everybody else.
To celebrate the launch, the LEGO Group unveils Green Noise, a new nature-inspired ASMR playlist with LEGO clicks and sounds reimagined as the unique sounds of each insect.
Created in partnership with award winning and Emmy-nominated Foley artist, Sanaa Kelley, an expert in recreating the sounds of species out of everyday items, the playlist features a soundscape up to 45 minutes, bringing the insects to life via audio.
The LEGO Green Noise playlist can be streamed at LEGO.com/insects.
