It seems that this year’s LEGO Ideas achievers are off to a good start. Following the lead of 2017’s first batch of LEGO Ideas projects review stage qualifiers, comes a picturesque modular that will not shy away from the impressive LEGO Creator Assembly Square (10255). The LEGO Ideas platform has seen a lot of modular entries over the years, but this original creation from Marco Schwarzel or better known as McMarco over at LEGO Ideas, stood out for its excellent use of orange and white pieces designed with the Mediterranean in mind. McMarco’s LEGO Ideas Venetian Houses come in as the 5th qualifier for this year’s first LEGO Ideas Review Stage. Check out the details of his striking modular creation.
“One generally sits far too seldom at the sea.”
This double modular size model comes with two wonderful Mediterranean buildings. Both houses are dedicated to various cultural activities. The set adds a southern flair to every LEGO building collection. As a long-time fan of Venice I could not resist to add a picturesque bridge, a typical water canal and, of course, a gondola. And it could be the first modular set on shelves with direct access to the sea!
- Fully playable, all parts are accessible with no problems.
- The set can be placed the other way around, with one long canal as a result.
- The walls are double-walled constructed.
- The two facades are inspired by genuine houses.
- Includes 17 minifigures.
- 2 x the standard modular size.
- Approximately 4500 bricks.
