LEGO might have realized its customers are running out of shelf space, because their newest collection doesn’t require any. The company has announced a new LEGO Art set series for adults. They’ll let you build—and then decorate your walls—with your own collection of 2D pop culture posters. They celebrate
LEGO Group is “launching a new canvas for creative expression” with LEGO Art sets (which we first heard about at
“Featuring fascinating anecdotes from the creators of Iron Man and Star Wars, or those closest to the stories of Andy Warhol and the Beatles, the soundtracks dive deep into the inspiration behind each design to help adults fully immerse themselves in the building experience and unwind while they explore their love of music, art or film in a new way.”
The sets are also designed so you can give them a personal touch. You can customize yours. And with some you can even decide to make multiple smaller pieces into one larger work of art.
“Each set can be reimagined in a number of different ways to express the personality of each different builder, and to make it easy and simple for pop culture lovers to refresh the LEGO Art piece on display in their house. All four new sets come with a signature tile unique to the set that is worthy of any true work of art, and a new hanging element to make them easy to hang up and switch around.”
Four sets will kick off the collection. They include:
Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe (3,332 pieces)
The 4-in-1 set’s soundtrack includes interviews with Jessica Beck, Curator at The Andy Warhol Museum. It also has stories from Blake Gopnik, Art Critic and the author of the biography
The Beatles (2,933 pieces)
The 4-in-1 set’s soundtrack has interviews with Broadcaster and Beatles Expert Geoff Lloyd and British journalist and Beatles fan Samira Ahmed, as well as stories from TV Presenter and Beatles fan comedian Nish Kumar.
Marvel Studio’s Iron Man (3,156 pieces)
The 3-in-1 set can be turned into the “ultimate Iron Man portrait piece.” (Which is especially cool.) The accompanying soundtrack features interviews with Roy Thomas, former Marvel Editor in Chief. It also includes stories from Alex Grand, Marvel expert and host of
Star Wars’The Sith (3,395 pieces)
The 3-in-1 Sith set can also be turned into a larger Darth Vader portrait piece. (Which is really, really cool.) The soundtrack comes with interviews with Doug Chiang, VP & Executive Creative Director, Lucasfilm, and stories from Glyn Dillon, creator of the design for Kylo Ren.
