Here’s a closer look at the LEGO Botanical Collection

A new LEGO retail catalogue has offered a closer look at LEGO Botanical Collection sets 10280 Flower Bouquet and 10281 Bonsai Tree.

The French consumer catalogue for the first half of 2021 contains a dedicated ‘adult builders’ section. Among the sets listed are LEGO Art, the Star Wars and Marvel helmets, Architecture and – for the first time – the upcoming Botanical Collection, providing a clearer look at the new 18+ sets.

An online retailer first revealed both 10280 Flower Bouquet and 10281 Bonsai Tree at the end of November. The models recreate plant life using LEGO bricks, as the LEGO Group continues to explore new ways to reach a wider adult audience.

The Botanical Collection also marks the first time that the LEGO Group has delved into the natural world in an adult-orientated set since LEGO Ideas 21301 Birds.

The catalogue unfortunately doesn’t include prices for the models, so we can only speculate on their eventual retail price. But we already know that 10280 Flower Bouquet contains 756 pieces, while 10281 Bonsai Tree includes 878 elements.

According to the catalogue, both models will release in January – at least in the French market. We’ll keep you updated with more info as we get it.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
