I always thought that LEGOs were cute for making walls and towers, maybe the occasional weird angular horses or something. I honestly had no idea that now you could make, oh, say...the Guggenheim Museum
. Right in time for the NY landmark's 50th anniversary.
The reviews on the LEGO site are really funny - "flet3her" complains of the Seattle Space Needle LEGO set
that "the banquet hall at the bottom is barely represented" but for those of you not looking for a perfect replica, but just a cool gift for an older kid, or some seriously great design-geek objects for the bookshelves, I think they look neat-o. If not for the frugalista.
The Guggenheim LEGO set has a Guggenheim gift shop price tag at $39, but the LEGO Taj Mahal comes in at nearly ten times that. Personally, I'd rather save that cash and put it towards trying to see the real one. -Liz
