Lego just announced their first 10,000+ piece set! Thought they'd just keep going bigger and bigger now they've started aiming more at the "adult" market.

11,695 pieces and they're all going to be tiny round ones :slol:

I can see the appeal in a painting-by-numbers sort of activity. 11,000 pieces is a bit much though!

I got one of those Star Wars busts for Christmas (TIE Fighter Pilot) and while a bit of a fun, almost verging on therapeutic experience I'm glad I haven't caught any kind of bug to get more "adult" sets.

Yet.

It definitely sounds like you're asking for recommendations. To which I say, try a modular building.

Assembly Square has a lot of detail to it and is probably being retired soon. Lego.com is on Quidco.

Apparently the manual for the world map doesn't even include the instructions for the ocean design from that image above? :lol: It's only got like a colour-coded ocean depth pattern instead.

It looks nice but good god damn the art sets just seem so... boring.

You'd think they would go into recreations of famous sculptures if they want to go down the art route.

Does it come with the frame to hang it on the wall though? I think the map of the world looks very nice to be honest, building it would be almost painstakingly boring after a short while though!

Just seen the Star Wars Sith ones in the same style, very tempted by that!

I think the idea is you have some creative freedom on the designs in the sea parts.

The funny part is that's probably going to weigh more than a glass hardwood frame of some other artwork so good luck hanging it safely. :dread:

I'm just amazed at how 'cheap' it is.

Nonono, as it's Lego you have to say it's stunning.

For that price they could have plastered and painted that wall instead

Going off the comments then I'm in the minority but I like maps and Lego so I'm very tempted by this. If they were to release a topographical (3D) pack of the land areas as well then I'd be all over it. #partoftheproblem

I built the ultimate Darth Vader (where you combine three different sets) one and it’s actually swish on the wall. Don’t think I’ll go down the same route for the Iron Man as it’s a very tedious build.

As for the Map, pointless for me. But I can see travellers will love it.
