LEGO has unveiled the next two additions to the Architecture line as the towering 21042 Statue of Liberty and 21041 Great Wall of China. Lady Liberty has 1,685 pieces and will sell for $119.99 USD. The Great Wall has 551 pieces and will sell for $49.99 USD. Both sets will be available June 1.
The Statue of Liberty set measures 17 inches tall, includes the plinth (unlike the former 3450 Statue of Liberty) and is made from primarily sand green and tan elements (as well as a minifigure hair element for the torch). If you are in New York, the set will be available ahead of June 1 at a variety of retailers in the city (listed below) starting May 19.
The Great Wall of China set includes two turrets and a winding wall on top of a lush dark green mountain side. Interestingly, the set is modular so you can connect multiple copies to create a longer and more impressive wall.
The Brothers Brick will have reviews of both the new LEGO Architecture sets for you in the coming week, but enjoy the full press releases and photo galleries below in the mean time.
