After several months of waiting, we finally have our first look at the official images of this year’s next batch of LEGO Architecture sets. If you recall at the Nuremberg Toy Fair last January, LEGO announced that two, new LEGO Architecture sets will be released this summer: the Statue of Liberty (21042) and Great Wall of China (21041).
Thanks to German retailer, Alternate.de, we now have our first official images of this newest LEGO Architecture set which is LEGO’s 6th tribute to the city that never sleeps following the likes of Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (21035), Flatiron Building (21023), United Nations Headquarters (21018), Rockefeller Center (21007), and the Empire State Building (21002). The LEGO Architecture Statue of Liberty (21042) comes in at 1,685 pieces and is expected to retail for 99.99 Euros. The excellent use of sand green and beige pieces, assembled in an evenly proportioned set bespeaks of the degree of thoughtful craftsmanship exhibited by LEGO’s top class designers. The Statue of Liberty (21042) set is part of the Architecture line’s summer offerings.
Check out these official images and product description as posted by Alternate. Thanks to Promobricks for the heads up.
LEGO Architecture Statue of Liberty (21042)
1,685 pieces; 99.99 Euros
The LEGO Architecture Statue “Statue of Liberty” recreates one of the world’s most famous national monuments in LEGO bricks. The 93-meter Statue of Liberty stands on Liberty Island in the New York City Harbor and welcomes sailors from all over the world. This symbol of freedom was a gift of the French people to the citizens of the United States and was officially inaugurated on 28 October 1886 before a large crowd. This detailed model captures the harmonious blend of architecture and sculpture that characterizes this building. The model includes an elaborate pedestal with shields and stones and pillared balconies. The beautifully crafted statue nicknamed “Lady Liberty” wears a flowing robe, broken chains, a seven-pointed crown, a legendary tablet and a golden torch in the raised arm. This elegant LEGO Architecture model in the authentic colors of sand green and beige is completed by a decorative name tag.
