Jim Lee’s Batman isn’t the only new addition to LEGO’s Art theme this year – LEGO are also honouring the King of Rock & Roll himself Elvis Presley with his very own LEGO Art set.
If you’re a fan of Elvis’ music and legacy as one of the most important musical and American cultural icons of the 20th century, you can now proudly display a 3445-piece LEGO Art mosaic version of Elvis Presley’s visage.
See below for regional pricing and links:
- 31204 Elvis Presley ‘The King’ [US] – US$119.99
- 31204 Elvis Presley ‘The King’ [AUS] – AU$179.99

- 31204 Elvis Presley ‘The King’ [US] – CAD$149.99
Similar to now-retired The Beatles Art set, the colour selection here is dominated by more human skin-tone colours, as well as a healthy selection of blues and reds, so even if you’re not an Elvis fan, this would be quite useful to create people-based mosaics – if you’re Caucasian, or have lighter complexion, that is.
There are 3 primary portraits you can build, covering Elvis Presley through the years – his start in music, in his prime or later in his career.
Each single mosaic measures over 15.5 in. (40 cm) square.
Like most other LEGO Art sets, there is a larger vertical mosaic that you can create out of 3x Elvis Presley Art sets.
These LEGO Art sets aren’t particularly cheap, so this combination will be quite pricey, however I feel like you could do this with 2 sets, and order the remaining sets from LEGO’s Pick a Brick/Bricks & Pieces service to save money, like previous Art sets.
This set isn’t really for me, as I’m probably a little too young to relate to Elvis’ legacy on music, but I do like the designs and colours selected for the portraits. LEGO Art sets aren’t for everyone, but I’m sure LEGO have done their market research, and there’s enough Elvis Presley or Rock & Roll fans to justify this set, and hey, even if you’re too young for Elvis, I’m sure it’ll make a great gift for the Elvis super fan in your life.
