About this deal

Elevate your LEGO® building skills to a higher level with this LEGO Architecture 21046 Empire State Building set containing 1760 pieces.

This 360°-displayable model features 4 highly detailed facades, a silver-coloured antenna tower and a tiled baseplate depicting Fifth Avenue and the surrounding roads, complete with 6 yellow cabs. As a member of the Recognized LEGO® Fan Media program, we abide by the LEGO Fair Play and Novelty policies by not sharing leaked photos of unreleased sets. Unfortunately, it won't appeal to many LEGO builders because the build process is too repetitive and the part selection is not very diverse (due to the overabundance of 1×2 Grille Tiles).

Scelerisque adipiscing bibendum sem vestibulum et in a a a purus lectus faucibus lobortis tincidunt purus lectus nisl class eros. The very clever SNOT techniques used to clad the facade of the model with 1×2 grille tiles make the building process very interesting (albeit a bit tedious).

I was shocked to see that the set includes 684 of them, which is more than ⅓ of the 1767 pieces included in the set! It doesn’t have the finer tuning of Spencer’s model but has enough so that it is highly distinguishable as the ESB. I ended up abandoning this effort but not before I did some renders comparing the models at 3 different scales. Light My Bricks™ and the Light My Bricks logo, are trademarks and copyrights of Light My Bricks Pty Ltd. It perfectly captures the explosion in enthusiasm for the Architecture Series, and the shift from focusing on the high-level form of the building to capturing more and more of the details.As a close up photo of the model, it doesn’t look that great as you can see all of the studs underneath.

Initially the sets were focused on major cities in the United States such as models of the Sears Tower, John Hancock Center, the Empire State Building, and the Seattle Space Needle followed by international landmarks including Burj Khalifa, Brandenburg Gate, the Sydney Opera House and dozens more.This case is flat-packed, made from 3mm acrylic and assembled by screwing together the front and back acrylic panels with the sides, using 12 screws provided. This is purely a treat for the person building the model, as you won’t be able to see them when the model is completed. I wish Lego would design more buildings emphasising more artistry in architectural styles — like your book did. I like how you can use LEGO bricks to make realistic looking models so I’m okay with the repetitive build.
