The first and second rounds of this year’s LEGO Inside Tour have already been concluded, and LEGO does not seem to shy away from revealing this program’s exclusive set. If you recall, the LEGO Inside Tour is a 3-day, one-of-a-kind LEGO fan experience where participants get to know the inner workings of the LEGO company, featuring an extraordinary exhibition of vintage LEGO sets as early as from 1934. Needless to say, it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for any serious LEGO fan. To top it off, every participant receives a LEGO Inside Tour exclusive set – and for this year, it is the LEGO System House (4000034) as revealed by LEGO itself.
I have to say that I find it a bit unusual for LEGO to make such a reveal via its LEGO Customer Services where the building instructions for the LEGO System House (4000034) has been uploaded. Furthermore, LEGO is quite adamant in reminding LEGO Inside Tour participants not to ‘spoil’ the experience to other registered participants by revealing the exclusive sets that they received. So seeing that the building instructions for this 2019 LEGO Inside Tour exclusive have been uploaded is quite odd.
Moving forward, the LEGO Inside Tour has produced some of its best designed exclusive sets. In 2016, we’ve seen the impressive LEGO Truck Show (4000022), followed by the beautiful LEGO House Tree of Creativity (4000024) in 2017. Last year saw the monochromatic LEGO Inside Tour LEGO Ferguson Tractor (4000025) set, and now we have another piece of LEGO history with the LEGO System House (4000034).
The LEGO System House (4000034) is inspired by the inauguration of the System House in 1958. It is the brainchild of Godtfred Kirk Christiansen, where he envisioned an administrative building that will serve as a sort of command center for its international activities, a showroom for exhibiting its new sets and products, and as a place of inspiration to spur creativity. You may read more about the early history of the LEGO System House in this article from the LEGO Group.
The LEGO System House (4000034) exclusive set comes in at 947 pieces, with only a total of 80 sets made for this year’s LEGO Inside Tour. It also comes with 10 minifigures representing the sales directors coming from various European countries where LEGO operates, as represented by their respective flags.
