About this deal

This 360°-displayable model delivers an interesting and rewarding building experience and makes a truly iconic centerpiece for the home and office. Please note: a signature is required for most deliveries so please choose an address where someone is in. The set includes great details from the famous New York skyscraper such as four leveled facades, the building's symmetrical curtain wall design, and famous antenna tower. Empire State Building achieves its possible objectives well - it is a collectable package, an instantly recognisable recreation of an iconic building, and a reasonably interesting building experience. What I really didn’t like was the very harsh and blinding light coming from the spotlights on the ground and on the front side of the building.

Lastly, we are treated to a beautifully designed spire which uses some drum-lacquered silver parts and clever techniques to good effect. Parturient in parturient scelerisque nibh lectus quam a natoque adipiscing a vestibulum hendrerit et pharetra fames nunc natoque dui.

Premium-Quality Construction: Our Display Case is expertly crafted from durable, transparent acrylic material that provides a crystal-clear view of your LEGO® masterpiece. 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).

I ended up abandoning this effort but not before I did some renders comparing the models at 3 different scales. LEGO, the LEGO logo, the Minifigure, and the Brick and Knob configurations are trademarks of the LEGO Group of Companies.

Construction of the building began on March 17, 1930 and just one year and 45 days later, on May 1, 1931 it was opened for business.

With a wide range of colours and effects, along with step-by-step instructions to guide you along the way - our light kits are easy and fun to install.

By using hundreds of 1×2 Grille Tiles, the set approaches the level of detail achieved by talented LEGO artists. 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! Located at the heart of New York City, the Empire State Building towers above the surrounding skyscrapers. Unless otherwise stated, all content not covered by The LEGO Group's copyright is 2022 Pure Display Ltd.It is amazing how accurate the designers of this set managed to make it at such a (relatively) small scale. At 21” (55cm), the tallest LEGO Architecture model to date (July 2019), this highly detailed, collectable replica accurately recreates the symmetrical lines of the building’s 4 curtain wall facades and art deco antenna tower. The tiled baseplate depicts Fifth Avenue and surrounding roads complete with yellow cabs, and the model is finished with a decorative nameplate. I like how you can use LEGO bricks to make realistic looking models so I’m okay with the repetitive build. This is actually my next project, and I’m so glad Lego has branched out with the Architecture series to include larger models (I’m over the whole skyline theme.
