At 1.49m tall and boasting 10,001 pieces (the odd extra 1 piece is for the brick separator), it’s really hard just to communicate the sheer scale and awe-inspiring size of 10307 Eiffel Tower.
LEGO Designer and Architecture maestro Rok Žgalin Kobe has taken one of the world’s most recognisable and iconic landmarks, and translated it into the ultimate brick-built rendition of the Eiffel Tower yet.
It’s been about 15 years since LEGO’s last massive Eiffel Tower model in 10181 Eiffel Tower, a set that most of my readers (me included) probably don’t own.
With LEGO’s ongoing efforts to push the envelope when it comes to LEGO sets, it’s almost the perfect confluence of elements for LEGO to bring it back in such epic form.
The 2022 LEGO Eiffel Tower authentically replicates the iconic wrought iron tower – complete with the beautiful truss-work, three observation platforms, landscaping, elevators, an office at the top and a broadcast tower and the Tricolore flag at its peak.
The Eiffel tower was constructed from 1887 to 1889 as the centrepiece of the 1889 World’s Fair, and was designed by Gustave Eiffel, who is depicted as a minifigure in the gift with purchase when you purchase the set!.
Despite receiving initial criticism for its design, it has since become a global, cultural icon and one of the most recognisable structures in the world.
There’s no denying it – this is a massive set and a huge investment. The model’s dimensions are 58.5 in. (149 cm) high, 22.5 in. (57 cm) wide and 22.5 in. (57 cm) deep, so you’re going to really have to plan out where to display this as it’s almost as tall as an adult.
I was actually lucky enough to catch an early preview of the Eiffel Tower and see it in person during my recent trip to the LEGO Campus in Billund, Denmark for RLFM Days 2022. Here’s a photo of me next to the Eiffel Tower, as well as desinger Rok Zgalin Kobe who did a short presentation on the set. I also interviewed Rok, so look out for that in the coming days!
If you’ve been lucky enough to visit the Eiffel Tower in person, you’ll immediately realise that there isn’t a park and trees at the base. According to Rok, the design is an amalgamation of the Eiffel Tower’s design at different eras of its lifetime, so you’re pretty much getting the “idealised” form of the Eiffel Tower with this model.
In fact, a really spectacular view can be had from the base of it, allowing you to view the ornate iron trusses that it’s known for.
I’ll also be the first to tell you that photos do not do this set justice at all, and you’ll really want to see it in person to fully appreciate the grand scale of this set.
That said, check out more lifestyle photos supplied by LEGO below
Oh, and as a special bonus, check out the full reveal and a short presentation by designer Rok Zgalin Kobe, which I recorded at Fan Media Days 2022.
I’ll have this set for review soon, so keep an eye out on the blog for my full review!
