Vilhelm22 posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesI noticed recently that there's been no topic for future landmark buildings (mods please merge/delete if I'm wrong) so I thought I'd better make one. There have been 6 landmark building sets made by TLG so far: 3450 Statue of Liberty (2000) 10181 Eiffel Tower (2007) 10189 Taj Mahal (2008) 10214 Tower Bridge (2010) 10234 Sydney Opera House (2013) 10253 Big Ben (2016) The Statue of Liberty is technically not part of this line but of the 'Sculptures' line that also includes 3723 LEGO Mini-Figure and 3724 LEGO Dragon, but I have included it here as the only Creator Expert set not officially of the 'Buildings' line that is a building known worldwide. The Taj Mahal was rereleased in 2018 as 10256. But the big question is.... what next? The building has to be something that can be sold and recognised globally, and would be a very large set (the smallest so far is the Statue of Liberty with 2882 pieces). It would also probably need to be something of architectural interest - not just a big glass skyscraper (the Burj Khalifa falls into this category). Towers are possible, but as the last one was a tower, I think it's unlikely. 10253 also had a large extension to the side which made it far more interesting. If you ignore the Taj Mahal entirely (or at least the rerelease) there have been buildings in 2007, 10, 13, and 16, so it would make sense to have one in 2019. The Taj Mahal rerelease is now the only one available, as Big Ben and Tower Bridge have both just been retired from LEGO’s range. It would therefore make sense to have one this year, with no others available apart from the Taj Mahal. So what is it? Share your thoughts in the comments below - but please no 'I want' or similar.
I'm back with a revised (and instruction-ized) version of Florence Cathedral (Duomo of Santa Maria del Fiore) I originally created back in 2017, but never posted on EB. The original model was built with real bricks in Florence Cathedral Museum thanks to the great team of Toscanabricks LEGO fan group, excited by the digital pics of the model I showed on an Italian LEGO forum. I finally managed to make instructions for it and I modified the domes (both Brunelleschi's and the three twins above the apses) with the newly released 1x2 rounded plates. I included a pic of the original model displayed at Museo dell'Opera del Duomo at the bottom of the gallery (photo not by me). Hope you like it!! (great photo by Claudio Giovannini)
