Its been a long time coming and thankfully, the LEGO Ideas Team has finally ushered in what could probably be the most sophisticated LEGO Ideas set as of to date. The LEGO Ideas Grand Piano (21323) has been finally unveiled, giving us a closer look at the intricate details and the complex designing that were involved in creating this musical brick masterpiece.
Coming in at 3,662 pieces, the official LEGO Ideas Grand Piano (21323) is the brainchild of musician and avid LEGO builder Donny Chen (aka Sleepy Cow over at the LEGO Ideas platform). Though the journey was quite long, the waiting time is definitely worth it. It took more than a year before we saw the realization of Donny’s vision for this grand masterpiece. Back in May 2019, the LEGO Ideas Team needed more time to review the Grand Piano when it was shortlisted during the LEGO Ideas Third 2018 Review Stage. It eventually had the thumbs up to become the next official LEGO Ideas set in September of last year together with another much-awaited approved set, the LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street.
The LEGO Ideas Grand Piano (21323) is one of the many 18+ LEGO sets that are intended for adult fans of LEGO due to its aesthetics, sophisticated features, and the degree of complexity required in building the set. And what is cool about this set is that the LEGO Ideas design team managed to add music to this set through the help of the LEGO Powered Up app linked to its motor. The music will come from the app itself while providing a real-time interface in controlling the motor, and vice versa. Check out the designer video below for a closer look at what to expect from this next LEGO Ideas set.
The LEGO Ideas Grand Piano is expected to retail for $349.99 once it is available on August 1. Read on for the set’s official product description and press release. You may also click on the following affiliate link below if you wish to add this to your LEGO must-haves.
