Last December, we were informed that the next set in the 2018 LEGO Architecture Skylines series will be a bit delayed as expected. The LEGO Architecture Skylines Las Vegas (21038) set was initially thought to have a January release date, just hot off the heels of its predecessor, the exquisitely beautiful LEGO Architecture Skylines Shanghai (21039). However, due to the recent tragic events that unfolded from one its hotels, it was sensible of LEGO to hold off its planned release until supposedly sometime in April. The LEGO Architecture Skylines Las Vegas (21038) comes in at 487 pieces and will apparently retail for 39.99€ or roughly at $39.99.
As it turns out, the delay will not be as bad as it seems. Promobricks managed to stumble upon an eBay posting that shows the set’s official image, and suggests a release date of January 31st. Please take note that this was listed by an eBay seller rather than quoting from an official LEGO source, so it will be wise to take this with a grain of salt. What is interesting, however, is the fact that that seller also posted what looks like to be the set 21038’s official description in German. There is a rough English translation available (courtesy of Google Translate) that gives a hint on the salient features of this set, which you can find below together after its official image.
Capture Las Vegas’s dazzling landmarks in a stunning skyline, from the iconic Mandalay Bay Hotel to the Luxor Hotel, Encore Hotel and Stratosphere Tower to the Fremont Street Experience! Each individual LEGO building conveys a unique and particularly rewarding building experience. This is ensured by the faithful coloring and scale reproduction.
Also on board is the famous Welcome to Las Vegas sign, which shows a desert and a road on a plate-covered base plate – a particularly warm welcome to this detailed replica of one of the most exciting cities in the world!
