No batteries required – this architecture construction set for adults offers a stress-relieving, relaxing build with LEGO® bricks only. It’s a great souvenir for Tokyo visitors and an ideal gift for adults who live or have lived in Japan’s capital city or who dream of visiting. The early releases under the Skylines subtheme now sell for several times their original RRP, although the two most recently retired sets have performed less well. From iconic landmarks to city skyline models, there's something for anyone interested in architecture, travel, history and design.The most interesting aspect is a technique that I’ve never seen before where the eight soft axle 19L (part 32235) elements are hidden in a collar at the top but are not attached to anything.

Failing to attribute this pagoda to a specific building is upsetting to me, both because this is a missed opportunity to teach builders more about the city, and because it feels like an insincere gesture towards the region’s history. The Tokyo Architecture Set 21051 is built using 547 pieces, comes with a Tokyo base nameplate and measures 11" high, 10" wide and 3" deep.Each case is delivered flat-packed, with all tools and materials required for assembly using easy-to-follow, printed instructions. Made of high-quality plastic and carefully crafted by Lego experts, this set is perfect for anyone who loves architecture and Lego building toys. The model offers a number of useful new parts and an enjoyable construction process full of techniques and details to keep the interest of the builder. Those parts could be modified to line up better, either by increasing the vertical section to 1 plate tall or eliminating it completely.

Featuring four prominent inverted pyramids, Tokyo Big Sight (completed 1996) is an iconic convention center located on the waterfront. Introducing LEGO Architecture…LEGO Architecture sets capture the essence of the world’s best-known buildings, monuments and cities.

Iconic buildingsThis toy construction set includes scale models of TOKYO SKYTREE, the world’s tallest freestanding tower, Tokyo Tower, Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower and Tokyo Big Sight.

Despite serious misgivings about the individual elements within the model, the completed set is lighthearted, cheery, and will look good on your desk or bookshelf. I disliked how the Eiffel Tower was handled in the Paris Skyline set, and continue to dislike the technique when applied to the Tokyo Tower. However, during peak periods like Black Friday and Christmas, dispatching might extend up to 5 business days. In the first two years they released three sets, and each year since they have added just two cities to the series. When you use the birthday benefits, please present the official certificate that confirms your birthday at the counter.I also dislike how the convex curve bulges at the transition to sloped bricks right above the four arches. Introducing LEGO Architecture… LEGO Architecture sets capture the essence of the world's best-known buildings, monuments and cities. While the base is not overly complex, I did notice that 1×5 Rotor (part 32124) is used in two places, allowing buildings to be attached using a Technic Axle connection.
