LEGO LAS VEGAS SKYLINE SET REVEALED

According to a Brickset article, LEGO set 21038 may be available soon!  Although it was thought to be delayed or possibly cancelled due to an incident at one of the buildings depicted, it’s good to see that we’ll still be treated to another skyline set some time this year.

From the look of it, the set seems to feature some new colors as well as a printed “Welcome to Las Vegas” tile and a minifigure pharaoh’s headpiece.

Art Deco Delight – 10260 Downtown Diner

If, like me, you’ve been dying for something more modern from the Modular Buildings theme, then you’re in luck!  LEGO just announced the Downtown Diner, available January 1st and it truly is an art deco delight!  The brightly colored palette is beautifully accentuated along numerous semi-circular curves, including a dramatic awning and corner window through which you can easily picture a few nighthawks sitting down for a late-night milkshake!

21039-shanghai-1At 597 pieces, this is the largest set of the LEGO Architecture “skyline” subtheme yet and looks to be consistently-scaled with both 2017’s Chicago and 2016’s New York City.

One of the most interesting techniques in this model appears to utilize 3×3 quarter-circle technic liftarm elements to achieve the curvature of Shanghai Tower.
