[L’industrie c’est fou] The Eiffel Tower sets a new Lego record

If you can’t climb to the top floor of the Eiffel Tower, maybe you can at least build its Lego replica. You will probably not need to employ as many staff as Gustave Eiffel but still a good dose of dexterity, since you will have to assemble no less than 10,001 elements. Unveiled in Paris this Friday, November 25, this model even won the record for the largest construction ever marketed by the Danish toy manufacturer.

Failing to reach 330 meters, the Miniature Iron Lady is indeed 149 centimeters high (and 57 cm wide). Enough to build a framework, three observation platforms, elevators, an office at the top, a radio and television broadcasting antenna, a French flag (the real monument is adorned with it only on rare occasions) and amenities landscaped (including 400 flowers).

“We followed the structural principles of the original tower as closely as the Lego system allowed. During construction, you will learn about interesting and innovative construction techniques that bring the architectural features of the tower to life”explains Rok Žgalin Kobe, designer of the company.

Very high building, just like its price

To transport this masterpiece of architecture once assembled, Lego has provided for the possibility of cutting into four sections. “Once completed, you can imagine the breathtaking feeling of standing at the top and gazing through the rich history of the city of Paris”, continues Rok Žgalin Kobe. A trip back in time that comes at a high price – 629.99 euros.

In 2007, Lego had already launched a first model of the Eiffel Tower (3,428 pieces at 1/300 scale, 108 cm high). A replica also in gray color, which cannot compete with the incredible palette of colors of the emblem of Paris.
