According to Instagram user brick_clicker, and posted to the platform by 1414FalconFan, 31208 The Great Wave off Kanagawa is rumoured to be coming on January 1, 2023, with 1,810 pieces for $100, or more likely $99.99.
The Great Wave off Kanagawa is a woodblock print that was made by Japanese ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai during the Edo period and it is currently being displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
There is a The Great Wave off Kanagawa project in the LEGO Ideas second 2022 review round already, meaning that should this rumour be accurate, that submission may not have much of a chance at becoming a LEGO Ideas model unless it has been relegated to another theme, which would be a first.
The source mentions that this is likely to be a similar build to 21333 Vincent van Gogh – The Starry Night, rather than the mosaics that the theme is mostly known for. However, LEGO Art has been breaking beyond mosaics recently with the release of 31206 The Rolling Stones.
As always, this is still just a rumour until officially confirmed as otherwise by the LEGO Group.
