The recently launched LEGO 31203 World Map set ( $249.99) has the title of having the most pieces in a LEGO set with 11,695 pieces, however it was created as an art piece rather than a geographical collection for fans. The LEGO Ideas 21332 The Globe set, which depicts a vintage earth globe, is not the case. If you want to add The Globe to your collection, now is the time; it’ll be available for $199.99 beginning at 9pm PST / 12am EST on January 31st/February 1st at LEGO.com. Everything you need to know about the set can be found below.
The Globe set was created by LEGO fan Guillaume Roussel using the company’s Ideas platform, which allows fans to submit ideas for new LEGO products and concepts. It includes glow-in-the-dark continent and ocean name tiles, as well as the option to spin on an axis of LEGO Technic elements. The finished product measures over 16-inches tall, making it a beautiful showcase item.
“With a little creativity, these bricks can be used to explore the world,” says Federico Begher, LEGO Group Head of Global Marketing for Adults. “What’s great about this set is that it allows fans to discover the world through LEGO bricks using their imaginations.” For everyone who is seeking a little adventure or to learn more about our planet, the globe is a sign of hope and goals for travel. We were able to detect Guillaume’s’ enthusiasm for traveling and adventure, as well as for educating building enthusiasts all over the world. “The main challenge we had was that there are a lot of rods, so it needed to spin freely,” says lead designer Nhi Tran.
