LEGO Art is just the theme for LEGO collectors who love art, primarily of the 2D form. Sets from the LEGO Art line don’t really take up that much space. Assembling the tile-mosaic designs is also fun, especially if the set offers variations on imagery. Recent LEGO Art products range from superhero comic-book artwork to tributes to legendary musical artists. In the latter category, we’ve heard rumors from back in March about the imminent arrival of a LEGO Art Rolling Stones set featuring the legendary rock band. Unlike February’s Elvis Presley “The King” (31204), this one doesn’t actually feature the artist/s. But it’s still cool.
Brick Fanatics tells us that LEGO’s confirmed LEGO Art “The Rolling Stones” (31206) via a LEGO.com product listing. It’s no tile-art of Mick Jagger and crew, but instead a 22-in x 18.5-in brick-built rendition of the band logo. This massive LEGO icon, unconstrained by the fixed square/rectangular frames of previous LEGO Art, looks great on a wall. Perhaps that non-conventional design might explain the now-confirmed $149.99 price, despite having only 1,998 pieces. It also appears to be 3D in texture, compared to the painting-style convention of past LEGO Art sets.
