Other than the poses for each of the brick-built figures and the gold detailing on the stage, most of 21334 Jazz Quartet strongly resembles what was initially pitched on LEGO Ideas in January 2021 by fan designer Hsinwei Chei.
However, you’ll notice one notable difference between the initial project on the left and the final product on the right. The grand piano is now being played by a different figure. The reason for this change might have been revealed in the press release for 21334 Jazz Quartet as the model is mentioned to include ‘four diverse musicians’. However, this could have been a result of various factors and nothing is confirmed.
The updated figure features thick black hair and a sleek yellow dress, with rings used as earrings too. The older figure instead wore a simple suit with hair similar to two of the other figures in the project. At the very least, this potentially serves to make the build less monotonous.
Other than minor changes in the various models, this is the biggest difference between the two versions of the LEGO Ideas Jazz Quartet. You’ll be able to pick up 21334 Jazz Quartet starting on July 1 for £89.99 / €99.99 / $99.99.
