Triumphantly taking the crown from 10276 Colosseum for the most elements in a single set, 31203 World Map will make headlines for its record-breaking feat alone. But as you’ll see from these images, there’s clearly more to this model than simply its sheer size.
For instance: it’s also incredibly colourful, and includes perhaps even more customisation options than any previous Art set, given the instructions encourage you to use those hues that make up its oceans to decorate as you see fit. (There’s also a set pattern that reflects scientific mapping of the ocean’s depths, if you’d prefer to just follow the manual.)
Beyond being able to tinker with the vivid colours that comprise the seas, 31203 World Map also offers the opportunity to rearrange the continents to place whichever you prefer front and centre, effectively scrolling along the two-dimensional atlas. Take a look through the gallery below to see how the set comes together, and how it will look on your wall.
