About this deal

KG Theme LEGO Creator Released in 2022 Amount of parts 277 Amount of instructions 1 Package dimensions (lxwxh) 19.

We put the sky field/skyline onto the backof the base, and fill in the balloon, and build in the top of the tower.

Otherwise, the build is solid, colorful, and would look good sitting on your desk as you dream about your next European vacation! By comparison, most of the modular buildings come in around this height, so I think we have to give the LEGO designers here some leeway as an Eiffel Tower that would stand 3 times the size of the one included would look really out of place in a small diorama such as this. Due to the high expected annual gain London Postcard should become a valuable collector set worth acquiring. BrickEconomy, the BrickEconomy logo and all content not covered by The LEGO Group's copyright is, unless otherwise stated, ©2024 BrickEconomy. This supercool gift features some of the British capital's most famous sights: Big Ben, Piccadilly Circus, the London eye and a red double decker bus.

Initially slated for release earlier in the year, postcards of New York and Beijing were delayed, possibly due to trade mark issuses associated with the use of the Chinese Flag.On the screens in Brickadilly circus, there are several references such as a crown for the monarchy, the name of the landmark surrounding a brick, a minifigure head and a sign reading ‘Sound of Bricks’ – which could be referencing the Sound of Music musicals time in the city . While I am deeply interested in architecture, I don’t purchase many LEGO Architecture sets because they offer limited play value and shelf space is limited (what with giant UCS sets taking up much of my shelving). Together, these sets bring some great examples of microscale building, as well as some interesting ideas about geting ‘off the grid’ – particularly in London.

Many of these sets have fallen under the 3-in-1 label which include instructions in a single set to provide multiple alternative models. With Paris, the extreme differences in height work to create a proper feeling of the city but let’s crunch the numbers on this one. While sets are in the process of being rolled out around the world (July-August 2022), a further 2 have been revealed: London and Paris. Expand your creativity and love for buildings by building your own version of London with this LEGO Creator 40569 Postcard Set. Originally created in 2001 with a focus on larger bucket sets, the LEGO Creator theme has expanded outside just bricks to later include minifigures.

The Eye however, is 443’ tall but come is in only at 22 plates high, meaning a plate there is over 20’ thick! We do our best to ship out items in the best condition but we can make no guarantees on the shipment handling process. I appreciate the final form of both of these sets: they are compact momentos of the cities, highlighting some iconic sights.
