The latest in the LEGO Botanical Collection has finally arrived. This popular line has been a triumph for the brand, in that décor fans who have no experience with building are picking up these gorgeous sets. Likewise, experienced builders looking for something a little more sophisticated and elegant have found their niche. It’s one of those themes that have us thinking, what arrangement might they think of next? Well here we are! Join us as we take a tour of the 812-piece LEGO Icons Botanical Collection 10314 Dried Flower Centerpiece, which will hit shelves February 1st, and retail for US $49.99 | CAN $69.99 | UK £44.99.
Brick-built interior decorations are something for which I have a great weakness. Miro Dudas surprises us with an excellent cuckoo wall clock in the style of a traditional German timber-frame house. You may even think these two collectible minifigures were designed specially for this model – that’s how perfectly they fit in! (They’re actually from Series 8 and Series 11.) The clock-face might be an unrecognizable part, but that’s because Miro has built the clock around a spare working mechanism from a real clock. This makes it a beautiful example not just of a nice-looking model, but also a functional one.
