If you recall earlier this year, attendees at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany had front row seats on the unveiling of the next LEGO Architecture set slated to be revealed this summer. Photography was strictly prohibited at that time, and rightfully so given that such a set is better off not spoiled with an ill-timed reveal. But thanks once again to online retailer Skvis Arena, we now have our first glimpse of the aesthetically impressive LEGO Architecture The White House (21054) set.
Similar to the earlier reveal of the LEGO Ninjago summer 2020 sets, what we have at the moment is a single box art image in a rather low-res quality. However, it is sufficient for us to appreciate the intricacies of this latest Architecture set. This brick rendition of the White House, is in fact, the second iteration of it. If you’re familiar with the theme, you might remember that the LEGO Architecture line had its first model of the said symbol of power back in 2010. However, this particular model is somewhat incomplete giving preference to the central portion (or the Residence Villa) of the White House as its highlight.
Thankfully, the latest LEGO Architecture The White House (21054) supersedes its predecessor, and now includes a more accurate version of the presidential residence. Included in this newest version are the East and West Wings of the White House, with more details for its gardens and yards.
The set comes in at 1,483 pieces and measures at a remarkable 50 centimeters in length, retailing for 99.99 Euro making it a striking display piece. It is also the first LEGO Architecture set to bear the 18+ logo, clearly indicating its target audience. Skvis Arena lists the LEGO Architecture The White House for a June 1, 2020 release, so we can expect additional and hopefully better images of this set anytime soon.
Special thanks once again to Promobricks for the heads up.
