LEGO announces tallest-ever set with Eiffel Towerlego

LEGO has announced its tallest-ever set with a replica of the Eiffel Tower.

The toy giant has all sorts of LEGO sets coming out for the festive season, including its own table football game as well as a Holiday High Street and a Christmas tree that can turn into two distinct decorations.

If you're looking for sheer size, you can't beat the Eiffel Tower set because it will stand at an incredible 149cm tall when it is fully built.

Inspired by the landmark in Paris, France, designers have worked hard to recreate even the most intricate design details from the tower for this LEGO version.

LEGO designer Rok Žgalin Kobe has said: "We wanted to find the ultimate LEGO expression for the engineering and architectural masterpiece that is the Eiffel Tower. We followed the structural principles of the original tower as closely as the LEGO System would allow.

"During the build you’ll uncover interesting, novel LEGO building techniques that bring the tower’s architectural features to life in LEGO bricks. Once complete you can imagine the breath-taking feeling of standing at the top and looking across the rich history of the city of Paris. It is the perfect set for travel and architecture fans alike.”

This tower is being designed for adult builders, aged 18 and up, because it will be a true challenge with 10,001 pieces to fully construct.

The LEGO Eiffel Tower set will be available for purchase from 25 November, 2022 (aka Black Friday) for £554.99 in the UK.
