LEGO has been a significant part of our childhood. But the iconic toy company has been using themes that are more aimed towards adults lately. These LEGO Posters, for example, are created to give you an immersive experience that will reconnect you with your creative side while easing stress away. Listen – build – relax, the LEGO Art project was built around these goals in mind. Furthermore, this project features a series of buildable posters featuring pop culture icons. And we could hardly contain the fanboy/fangirl in us.
The new posters come in four incredible sets that will turn your passion into art. Build your own version of Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe, The Beatles, Marvel’s Iron Man and Star Wars’ The Sith. Each set comes with LEGO round stubs in different colors and a LEGO frame where you create the portrait. Of course, each building set includes an instruction manual showing where each colored stud should be placed. So, it’s like you’re creating a mosaic.
LEGO Posters Featuring Pop Culture Icons
If you’re a fan of Andy Warhol or Marilyn Monroe then the Warhol set is for you. This set of posters was based on the Marilyn Diptych (1962), a silkscreen painting depicting the legendary ‘blonde bombshell’. It includes 3,341 LEGO pieces to help you build Monroe’s portrait in Warhol’s signature art style. You can choose to create 4 different options of your choice or better yet buy 4 sets to display all the portraits. This 4-in-1 art piece measures around 15.5 square inches. And when you’re done with the poster, finish it off by adding the included signature tile before putting your creation on display.
Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe
If you’re a Beatles fan then this one is the perfect set for you. The Beatles set features 2,933 LEGO pieces to help you create portraits of the band members. You can choose John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, or Ringo Starr to put in the frame. The art piece measures 15.5 square inches and also comes with an exclusive signature tile to complete your poster. And if you’re really a fan, you should create all the four portraits to complete the iconic band.
The Beatles Set
When it comes to fandom, the Marvel Universe arguably has the most devoted fans. And if you’re one of them then this Iron Man set is a must-have. Unlike the first two sets, this Marvel-inspired set has only 3 build options featuring portraits of the superhero’s armor, the Mark III, the Hulkbuster Mark I and the Mark LXXXV. It includes 3,167 LEGO pieces with the finished piece measuring 15.5 square inches. Finish your creation by adding the Iron Man logo tile on the portrait.
Marvel Studio’s Iron Man Posters Set
Join the Dark Side of the Force with The Sith posters set. This 3-in-1 portrait set lets you celebrate your favorite Sith Lords, whether it’s Darth Maul, Darth Vader, or Kylo Ren. It comes with 3,406 LEGO pieces to help you create a finished portrait measuring 15.5 square inches. Finish it off by placing the Star Wars logo on the portrait.
Star Wars The Sith
All sets come with a brick-built LEGO frame, 9 canvas wall décor plates, instructions, a hanging element and piece separator for easier building. One of the best things about this LEGO Art project is that each set comes with a unique soundtrack related to the set. You can listen to the unique soundtrack while you build the portrait at your own pace. This way, you can unleash your creativity while you immerse in the experience and relax your mind. Moreover, each soundtrack reveals the story behind the theme of the set. To access the soundtrack, scan the QR code printed on the building instructions. Each track is around 90 minutes long.
Each Set Comes With A Unique Soundtrack
The LEGO posters will be available on September 1st, 2020 and each set retails at around $120. Build, relax, and immerse yourself as the uniquely curated soundtrack transports you into the transcendental meditation retreat inspired by your favorite icons.
