2012 LEGO Architecture News & Discussion
Posted 13 January 2012 - 03:55 PM
While I agree a larger-scale model could have been much more precise, one thing I kind of like about some Architecture sets (like the Space Needle, which I consider the best set from the first wave) is how they go for the overall impression of their subjects rather than necessarily for more exact, sculpture-like renditions. The same can sort of be seen in the four "horsemen" atop the Brandenburg Gate. In general for the Architecture line this is a very nice set, and I'm sure if TLG ever wanted to go back and make a larger model like the Taj Mahal set, there'd be nothing stopping them.

when I was looking at brickshop.nl,In the new items bar was this added:
LEGO 21012 Sydney Opera House.
The release date is 1 june 2012,and the price 39,99 euro's.
this was the same site that give us information about the pet shop,and the joust,so I think we can trust this.
What do you think?
there are ligid then, a lot of european lugs don't like the fact that LEGO supplied brickshop.nl with the Maersk train set before they gave it to LUGs like de Bouwsteen, BeLUG or Lowlug. brickshop.nl came out with a youtube video about it. It seems they have good connections with LEGO :)
-== Classic LEGO trains are the best ==-

The sail shapes are not even close, at least the others in the series look similar to what they are meant to be.
So, this..........has became that.
Each sail piece ends at a point not a squared off line.....it looks like it from a distance....get closer and it's a fail.
Sorry, Lego but from this Aussie who has walked around it for real....you fail.

And to be honest, this dosen't really do much for me but
i do like how this particular set it made,

I would have expected something bigger, considering it's a fairly iconic landmark.
Also because I live ten minutes away from it.

I get the feeling that this set was rushed. I just hope this is just false photo.
Man what a shame

Same here. I got fairly excited reading rumours this would possibly be released as a Large Scale Model, so a bit disappointed.
Great for Architecture line though, I think it's awesome that also non-US buildings have been designed for this lately.

TLG should have made something like this. That is really life-like. A 5922 piece Taj Mahal would mean TLG is capable of a 5000 piece Sydney Opera House.

I'm curious what the price point for this set will be. Amazon.co.jp prices it a bit higher than the Brandenburg Gate, and I think that seems reasonable, since it seems similar in size but with a much more complicated base.
