The original project was designed by Taiwan-based LEGO fan, Hsinwei Chi through the LEGO Ideas platform – check out his original project here.
As you can see, not much has been changed, except the floor colour, which has been brightened up, and the introduction of a female pianist, which adds so much needed gender diversity into the quartet.
It’s a pretty cool model, and I like that the stage and musicians can be separated, allowing you to remix the layout of the band, and have some fun with it.
It’s quite a decent-sized display model, perfect for your desk, as it doesn’t take up too much space, and is quite unassuming. The dimensions of the set are 20cm (7.5″) high, 43cm (17″) wide, and 16cm (6″ deep).
As you can see in the the lifestyle photos, the brick-built humans look quite large.
As suggested in the photos, the set is designed to be built by 1-4 people, making this an ideal group activity with a partner, preferably with some jazz music in the background!
Here’s a better look at the brick-built humans, and musical instruments which include a grand piano, trumpet, double bass and drum kit.
How cool is the use of a blank video game controller as bowtie!
I really like the design of the figures – not quite Miniland figures, but with more anatomically unique features that give each player distinct identities.
I like how unassuming the set is – it has no blockbuster license, or nostalgic movie reference, no outrageous design or play features, just a very solid design. I don’t think it’s going to set the world on fire, but for LEGO fans who want a classy model, or have an affinity with jazz music (remember going to jazz clubs??), this is a great set.
LEGO is clearly looking to target music fans of all genres, and now you can add this to the collection, alongside LEGO 21329 Ideas Fender Stratocaster, 21323 Grand Piano, 40548 Spice Girls Tribute, 31206 The Rolling Stones and 31204 Elvis Presley ‘The King’.
The price also seems decent at US$99.99 for 1.6k pieces, I just hope the price isn’t affected by the upcoming price increases.
I’ll hopefully be able to share my early review soon, and hopefully the delivery isn’t delayed, so I’m really looking forward to checking this set out!
What do you think of the design of 21334 Jazz Quartet? Does the design appeal to you and will you be interested in the set come 1 July?
