Lego has announced a new Lego Art set series for adults, so you can now geek up the walls of your home with pop culture posters that celebrate Star Wars, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Beatles, and Marilyn Monroe.
The company said that it is “Designed for adults who pride themselves on their love of pop culture,” and are aimed at adults who are looking for a way to relax and destress. You can give these sets a personal touch – whether that’s making them as smaller pieces or combining them into a larger piece. Each set also comes with a custom soundtrack for you to listen to while putting them together, featuring “fascinating anecdotes from the creators of Iron Man and Star Wars, or those closest to the stories of Andy Warhol and the Beatles.” These soundtracks will dive into the inspiration behind each design to help immerse you in the building experience and unwind.
The series will kick off with four sets initially:
Marvel Studio’s Iron Man
This 3-in-1 set comes with 3,156 pieces and lets you build portraits for the MARK III, the HULKBUSTER MARK 1 or the MARK LXXXV, which can also be combined into the “ultimate Iron Man portrait piece.” The accompanying soundtrack features interviews with Roy Thomas, former Marvel Editor in Chief and includes stories from Alex Grand, Marvel expert and host of Comic Book Historians podcast.
Star Wars – The Sith
Clocking in with 3,395 pieces, this 3-in-1 Sith set celebrates the iconic villains from a galaxy far, far away – where you can build portraits featuring Darth Vader, Darth Maul and Kylo Ren, or combine all three into a larger Darth Vader wall piece. The accompanying soundtrack features interviews with Doug Chiang, VP & Executive Creative Director, Lucasfilm, and stories from Glyn Dillon, creator of the design for Kylo Ren.
Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe
With this set, you can use 3,332 pieces to recreate Andy Warhol’s famous bright pink screenprint of Marilyn Monroe from 1967, or reimagine it in three different colors using LEGO tiles. The soundtrack will feature interviews with Jessica Beck, Curator at The Andy Warhol Museum as well as stories from Blake Gopnik, Art Critic and the author of the biography Warhol.
If you’re a fan of the legendary Beatles, you can turn these 2,933 pieces into four unique portraits of John Lennon, Sir Paul McCartney, George Harrison or Sir Ringo Starr. The set’s soundtrack offers interviews with Broadcaster and Beatles Expert Geoff Lloyd and British journalist and Beatles fan Samira Ahmed, as well as stories from TV Presenter and Beatles fan comedian Nish Kumar.
All products measure over 40cm square when completed and have a recommended retail price of US$119,99. The Iron Man set will be available exclusively from LEGO Retail Stores and LEGO.com, while the three other sets will be available from retailers starting 1st August 2020.
