At this point, globetrotting seems like a distance past, isn’t it? Now that going places isn’t quite possible, you can reminisce about those good’ol days with the LEGO 31203 Art World Map.
Obviously, you can pick up any world atlas to do that (or just use Google Earth), but you can’t deny that there is nothing like the building the world from the ground up.
And building the world from the ground up is what the LEGO 31203 Art World Map will let you do.
With 11,695 pieces (!), I can only imagine the details that come with it, albeit it being a 2D world map.
Not only will the LEGO 31203 Art World Map lets you create a stunning representation of the Earth from 2D LEGO tiles (which seems like a huge thing in recent years), it is customizable too.
You will be able to reimagine the map in a number of different ways, including using the customizable brick-built pins to mark places you have visited, or highlight those still on your bucket list for when traveling is possible again. It is truly a unique map.
There are more to it:
“The set’s building instructions show how the 40 interconnecting base plates are divided into three sections for the build that can be arranged in one of three different ways, allowing you to place your favourite part of the world in the centre of your map.”
In addition, the oceans on this 104 by 65 cm (40.5 by 25.5 inches) LEGO-lized world map can be tailored to be a true expression of your style.
The tiles can be arranged can be arranged in bathymetric mapping of the ocean floor, or if you desire, arranged them as you wish.
Completing the package is a coffee-table style instruction booklet, a white brick-built frame and a pair of hanging elements. The latter lets you hang the map on the wall and easily taken down if you ever want to rebuild it.
Sounds like whole lot of fun, doesn’t it? Well, the thing is, fun costs money. A lot of money. The LEGO 31203 Art World Map Set will run you back at US$249.99 when it becomes available on June 01, 2021.
LEGO 31203 Art World Map Set joins the growing list of LEGO Art that covers pop culture icons like Hogwarts Houses from Harry Potter, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, LEGO Pop Art and more.
