The largest model of 2022 will be the “Eiffel Tower”
Fans of the building sets have finally received more concrete information about one long-awaited novelty in 2022. It’s about the constructor. 10307 LEGO Icons Eiffel Tower.
For the first time, this set was talked about back in early 2022, but so far, fans have had to be content with nothing but speculation and rumors. And now the description of the prefabricated kit from Brick Clicker has appeared on the net – a source that has previously provided accurate data on many new kits. Therefore, the news is credible.
So, what will be the model of the famous symbol of France and Paris this time? Before we start our mini-review, let’s remind you that the Danish manufacturer Lego has already released sets with this iconic building in 2007, 2014 and 2020. So, the new version differs from all its predecessors in scale. The absolute size of the “brick” Eiffel Tower, which is being built from 10,001 parts (!), Will be 150 cm in height with a base of 50 by 50 cm. In general, a giant exhibit will require a lot of space for itself both at home and in the office. In terms of the number of parts, this model will be second only to the “Map of the World”, which was released earlier in the LEGO Art series. Accordingly, it is expected that the cost of new items will be at least 700 euros.
It is specified that contrary to initial assumptions, the Eiffel Tower will be released in dark brown. As for the gaming potential, in principle they can be present thanks to the huge design. However, in general, this model will be purely demonstrative, as it is initially focused on an adult audience. Especially for collectors of architectural masterpieces. This is indicated by the release of the set in the line LEGO Icons.
Sale of the constructor 10307 LEGO Icons Eiffel Tower expected at the end of November 2022. Most likely, his appearance on the shelves of toy stores will be timed to the next Black Friday.
Brick Clicker also reports that Lego, in addition to the reviewed set, will release a free vignette depicting the two-room apartment of Gustave Eiffel, the author of the grandiose Eiffel Tower project. It is assumed that the model will be based on known real prototypes. In particular, on the fragment when Thomas Edison came to visit the architect.
The free vignette will only be available to purchasers of the set. 10307 LEGO Icons Eiffel Tower.
