The latest in a series of miniature versions of the Eiffel Tower is included with the upcoming LEGO GWP, 40579 Eiffel’s Apartment.
Next week sees the launch of 10307 Eiffel Tower, set to be the tallest LEGO model ever released and clocking in at a whopping 10,001 pieces. The LEGO Icons build will be available to all from November 25, which just happens to be Black Friday, and may be a popular purchase despite its high price tag.
In addition, 10307 Eiffel Tower will also be accompanied by a new GWP set, 40579 Eiffel’s Apartment, with the 228-piece model recently appearing on LEGO.com. The promotional model will be launching alongside the much larger Icons build and will only be available with purchases of 10307 Eiffel Tower from November 25 to November 28, while stocks last.
A closer look at the contents of the promotional set reveals that the interior of 40579 Eiffel’s Apartment includes a miniature version of the Eiffel Tower, built from 11 basic pieces. Whilst the tiny Tower is a great nod towards the massive Icons build, it’s also just the latest miniature version of the French architectural monument to have appeared in LEGO form.
Tucked away in one of the rooms in 10255 Assembly Square is another small Eiffel Tower, with this version included with the Icons set being constructed from only 10 pieces. In addition, 854011 Eiffel Tower Magnet Build also used just a handful of pieces to represent a scaled-down version of the Parisian landmark. It’s certainly a testament to the iconic design of Gustave Eiffel’s most famous construction project that the world famous Tower is still instantly recognisable, even at a shrunken size.
10307 Eiffel Tower launches online and in-stores on November 25 and will retail for £554.99 / $679.99 / €629.99.
