Announced all the way back in September 2020 (which feels like a lifetime ago), the LEGO Globe brings fan designer Guillaume Roussel’s successful project to life, adding to LEGO’s expansive list of brick-built everyday objects such as the Typewriter, Adidas Superstar Sneaker and Bird of Paradise pot plant, among others.
Explorers, get set for adventure! The LEGO Group has revealed the LEGO® Ideas The Globe, sure to spark fans’ imaginations of traveling around the world, exploring new places and building new memories.
The 2585-piece set beautifully shows a realistic, customizable vintage brick-built earth globe, with printed names of the continents and oceans that glow in the dark so you can display and see the world at every moment. In addition, once built the set spins, a first for a LEGO globe at this scale.
The set was designed as part of the LEGO Ideas® platform, a LEGO initiative that takes new ideas that have been imagined and voted for by fans and turns them into reality. France-based LEGO fan, Guillaume Roussel, was responsible for creating the concept for the LEGO Ideas The Globe – having been inspired by the tales of Jules Verne. Talking about how he approached the design, Guillaume said: “When approaching the design, I asked myself ‘what could be creative, educational and touch most of the world?’ And the answer was just ‘the world itself’”.
It’s quite a sizable set – the Globe’s circumference
diameter measures approximately 83cm, and the model’s dimensions are 30 cm (11.5 in) in length, 26 cm (10 in) long, and 40 cm (16 in) high.
It’s a great display piece, especially if you like old timey objects, or maps in general, and yes, it will go incredibly well with the LEGO Map for those into cartography.
