Leave it to LEGO to realize one’s monumental building ideas, Builders can create towering edifices of their own design with what LEGO bricks and pieces they have. Or they can buy a LEGO set depicting a wide variety of complete structures both original and IRL. Plenty of famous buildings around the world have already been graced with LEGO-set depictions across the brand’s numerous theme lines. Take for instance one of the iconic symbols of Paris, France: the Eiffel Tower. It already came out as a 1:300 scale set (number 10181) and as a LEGO Architecture entry (21019). And rumors of a new rendition have been around since this past February.
As Brick Fanatics tells us, there’s some new updates on the rumors of a new LEGO take for the Eiffel Tower. The word from earlier this year alleges it was for the LEGO Creator Expert line, numbered 10307 and coming sometime in November. A recent Instagram Stories entry from LEGO news source brick_clicker states new info. Eiffel Tower (10307), now for LEGO Icons, will release this coming Black Friday. Furthermore, the possible set price has jumped from $629.99 to $679.99; given recent across-the-board LEGO price increases, this was a given.
Some LEGO records stand ready to be broken by the rumored Icons Eiffel Tower set. With 10,001 reported pieces, we’re looking at a possible 150-cm tall build. We’re talking new “tallest LEGO set yet”. Further rumors state that some pieces will be of a Technic nature, the better to hold the structure together. Black Friday 2022 is November 25, so we have just around two months to determine if this rumor pans out. We might not need salt for this rumor; but better safe, etc.
