New sets 10220 VW Van and 21008 Burj Khalifa-Dubai

Post by gabriellee11 » Fri Apr 01, 2011 9:09 pm

Got it from a reliable source that there will be new sets coming up this year and they are

10220 Volkswagen Van
21008 Burj Khalifa-Dubai (Architecture Series)

Also,
10222 will most likely be a winter set and 10218 a modular set (possibly a pet shop)

I would totally GEEK OUT over the VW van....The VW beetle was one of my favorite builds 2 years ago. Heres hoping for a 1500+ piece set to truly do it justice!

An Architecture set that's not an American building? It's either good that they're branching out, or bad that they're changing the theme. I'm already in love with the sound of the VW Volkswagen Van, though. I pray that the modular is NOT a pet shop.

I sold my real van so a LEGO one would be awesome! I think the pet shop is for real - there is a thread over at eurobricks about it.

Architecture isn't only an American thing haha. I'm pretty sure they use it all over the world :P

What I meant is that so far, every Architecture set they've done has been an American building. They've done nine sets, and haven't deviated from that, so unofficially you could call the series "American Architecture."

I see what you mean. Well I'm pretty sure a lot of the other buildings they do do that aren't Architecture end up as one of the large Creator sets, like Eiffel Tower and Taj Mahal.

Does the burj win for easiest set to reproduce. I wonder if they will include any alternate build instructions? :D :D

I have to say this is one ugly set. The real Burj is so pretty and good looking, and the lego sculpture totally looks like it's made by a 2 year old. Here's a picture I took when I was in UAE http://tinyurl.com/6hvn26l" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and the sculpture looks nothing like that.

A lot of the Architecture line suffers from lack of effort, it seems. For the money they're charging, they should be a lot more creative.

I built this last night just from that picture. Took me all of 4 minutes. LEGO if this is your best stab at architecture, you should quit. Also that building is more blue from the glass than it is gray.

Dear Lego, you target market is???????? This is not action oriented for kids, not is it a challanging build for fan of architecture. Welcome to economic reality of a loss. The darned thing is, they will read into this "Architecture doesn't sell!" rather than "Crappy architecture set don't make people want to spend money"

So far, the only one I parted with cash for is "Waterfall House" and I'm an archtecture nut. Heck you even made a model in my favorite architecture style, and yet still, I didn't buy it because the value was bad, the parts were common, and the build unexciting(The Space Needle)

And I'll bet this set will be like $40.

This is an epic fail by LEGO, even more so than the Star Wars advent calendar.

This can't be $40. No way. $30 probably....

Star Wars sell, Non0city Advent sells I don't see this as a mistep.

Unlike say The Star Wars Maquette Figures, the Darth Maul Bust, Th Lightsaber Duel, or the Twilight
