LEGO Ideas “Vincent van Gogh – The Starry Night” (2133) Revealed, Coming June

21333 alt11

“The Starry Night” by Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh is one of the most famous late-19th Century paintings. This artwork catches the eye with whimsically swirling sky patterns and brightly glowing moon and stars. But those same patterns have been interpreted as visualizations of Van Gogh’s lifelong inner turmoil. As a masterpiece painting, “The Starry Night” has featured in pop culture. Don McLean sang about it in his 1971 song “Vincent”. A 2010 “Doctor Who” episode on BBC featured the artist in monologue while imagining the night sky like his painting. And now LEGO’s getting its own interpretation of it.

After months of collectors knowing it was coming, LEGO has officially listed Vincent van Gogh – The Starry Night (21333). This brick-built rendition of the named painting arose from a LEGO Ideas submission by Truman “legotruman” Cheng. “The Starry Night” bursts out of the frame via LEGO-brick relief. At the foot of the frame is a Van Gogh minifigure at his easel with a mini-version of the scene. This is sure to be a sought-after LEGO Ideas product as soon as it launches next month according to Brickset. Now let’s check out some more product info:

One thought on “LEGO Ideas “Vincent van Gogh – The Starry Night” (2133) Revealed, Coming June”

  1. This looks neat and all but there’s going to be a very niche market for this due to its price and current economic conditions. Frankly I’m surprised LEGO approved this. It must not have required any new elements
