LEGO debuts tallest build to date with its LEGO Eiffel Tower
The LEGO Group has launched its tallest build to date in the form of the LEGO Eiffel Tower set.
The 10,001 piece set is 4.8ft tall once built, and includes the truss-work, three observation platforms, landscaping, elevators, an office at the top, a broadcast tower and the Tricolore flag at its peak.
“We wanted to find the ultimate LEGO expression for the engineering and architectural masterpiece that is the Eiffel tower,” said LEGO designer Rok Žgalin Kobe.
“We followed the structural principles of the original tower as closely as the LEGO System would allow. During the build you’ll uncover interesting, novel LEGO building techniques that bring the tower’s architectural features to life in LEGO bricks. Once complete you can imagine the breath-taking feeling of standing at the top and looking across the rich history of the city of Paris. It is the perfect set for travel and architecture fans alike.”
The LEGO Eiffel Tower set is available from November 25th.
