31206 The Rolling Stones – a set in the LEGO Art range – is enjoying a discount in the current round of John Lewis LEGO offers.
Typically, this set costs £129.99. But thanks to this discount, you can grab it for £103.99 instead – a 20% price reduction.
Inspired by the legendary English rock band, 31206 The Rolling Stones recreates the famous ‘tongue’ logo used to market their material. Unlike other LEGO Art models, the logo doesn’t sit in a frame. Instead it models the subject matter at a larger scale, resulting in a real statement piece.
The resulting tongue is 22 inches tall and 18.5 inches wide, and can be hung on the wall thanks to a specialised, rear-mounted element. Since the set’s release coincides with the band’s 60th anniversary, a number of pieces form the number 60 on the tongue itself. However, this is covered up if you follow the instructions to the end.
Like other releases in the LEGO Art range, this set is accompanied by a podcast you can listen to during the construction process. This explores the inspiration behind the logo, and is accessible by scanning a QR code in the instructions. A transcript of the podcast is also available.
As an excellent step forward for the LEGO Art theme, this is a great option for both LEGO Art fans and Rolling Stones fans. Buying it from John Lewis at this price will qualify you for free delivery, and you’re sure of a solid customer service experience as well.
