The LEGO Group is launching a new canvas for creative expression alongside a series of much-loved partners. Designed for adults who pride themselves on their love of pop culture, four new LEGO Art sets give creative adults a different way to transform their passion into art.
For Star Wars Fans
Tile by tile, you can create portraits of Darth Vader, Darth Maul, and Kylo Ren with the brand new LEGO Art Star Wars The Sith set. Featuring over three thousand pieces, each set can be reimagined in a number of different ways. Or combine three sets for a massive Darth Vader mural. Plus, while you’re building you can listen to a bespoke soundtrack featuring interviews with some of the minds who brought the Star Wars galaxy to life, including Doug Chiang and Glyn Dillon.
With new research from the LEGO Group finding that 73% of adults often research new ways to help them relax*, each LEGO Art set comes with a bespoke soundtrack that makes the perfect building companion. 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 LEGO® Marvel Studios Iron Man set will be available exclusively from LEGO Retail Stores and LEGO.com while the other three sets will be available from retailers from 1st August 2020, or from 1st September in the US. Products may be available to pre-order from 1st July from selected retailers in certain countries.
Louise Elizabeth Bontoft, Senior Design Director at the LEGO Group, commented: “We know adults are always trying to destress after a day at work, and we thought, what better way to help them switch off than by encouraging them to explore their favourite passion in a new creative way?
With these wider ranging designs, we believe that we can inspire film fans, music lovers and art and design aficionados to immerse themselves in a world of art and creativity linked to their idols. Through this new experience, we believe adults can unwind, engage in a mindful building activity and ultimately create a beautiful piece of wall art that perfectly reflects their personality.”
These new wall art sets are the second 2D tile creative concept to be announced by the LEGO Group this year, following the launch of LEGO® DOTS, a new theme that offers children a new way to express themselves inspired by arts and crafts.
New LEGO Art Star Wars The Sith building set will be available from international retailers starting August 1, and in the United States from September 1. Pre-orders now from ShopLEGO.com
