The wait has been long, but maybe it was worth it. Due to an unfortunate real-life incident beyond anyone’s control, LEGO’s Architecture set of the Las Vegas skyline, numbered 21038, was delayed while one of its featured structures, the hotel where the incident occurred, was replaced with a new building. Another delay announced this year pushed the LEGO Architecture Las Vegas set to the latter portion of 2018. In the interim, images of the revamped set, now numbered 21047, popped up in out-of-the-way online sources such as a Korean-language LEGO product catalog. Finally however, we now have the official images of the LEGO Architecture Las Vegas (21047) set.
Amazon France now has a product listing for the new LEGO Architecture Las Vegas (21047). The images there have come a long way towards reassuring LEGO fans that have been waiting for this product that it’s real, confirmed, and will be delayed no longer.
The back of the box reiterates all the Vegas landmarks that are included in this Architecture set. There’s the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign, Fremont Street Experience, Stratosphere tower, Encore at the Wynn, the Luxor, and the Bellagio Hotel which replaced the Mandalay Bay from the original 21038 version.
Now, this Amazon France listing for the LEGO Architecture Las Vegas (21047) has no info on pricing and release date, though the official LEGO product catalog that first showed images of the revamp says we’ll be getting it in September. We most certainly hope so.
