Amazon Discounts LEGO Archicture Sets

Amazon has discounted several LEGO Architecture sets ranging from 20-34% off. They’re all on sale actually but some of them aren’t worth losing sleep over. Like that 21008 Burj Khalifa set. I don’t think they can discount that thing deep enough. I’ve linked the notable sets below.

Please note that the prices listed below are reflective of Amazon’s list price and the discount amount may not be as great as perceived.

Vote For The Next Architecture Set

Are you tired of tiny Architecture sets? Did you laugh out loud at 21008 Burj Khalifa set? Maybe you can change that. LEGO.com, on their Architecture microsite, is asking for your opinion on what you want to see as the next Architecture set. Unfortunately, there’s no way to express your opinion on what scale the model should be; we can only hope that 21010 Robie House is the first in a series of larger, more detailed, higher piece count sets. ‘Cause I’d hate to see how the Roman Colosseum would look at 100 pieces and a $20 dollar price point.

New Architecture Set: Burj Khalifa

LEGO today released a press release detailing the latest addition to their Architecture line, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa. The set, number 21008, is scheduled to go on sale on June 1. No word on price yet, we’ll update this post as soon as we get more info.

BILLUND, Denmark – The LEGO Group has chosen Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, as the latest eye-catching representative of its LEGO®

Architecture series, which celebrates the past, present and future of the worlds’ architecture.

Burj Khalifa, inaugurated on January 4, 2010, towers 828 meters (2,716.5 feet) above Downtown Dubai, Emaar Properties’ flagship development, billed as ‘The Centre of Now,’ in the United Arab Emirates. It is the first model in LEGO Architecture’s Landmark series to represent a building outside the United States.

Designed by Chicago architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, and developed by Dubai-based Emaar Properties PJSC, Burj Khalifa has been reproduced in LEGO bricks by Adam Reed Tucker, who has been responsible for the design of all the LEGO Architecture sets.

The aim of the LEGO Architecture series is to highlight and celebrate the worlds of architecture, engineering and construction through the representation of iconic and influential buildings, architects and movements.

“As an architectural artist my desire is to capture the essence of a particular architectural landmark in its pure sculptural form,” says Adam Reed Tucker. “I don’t view my models as literal replicas, but rather my own artistic interpretations through the use of LEGO bricks as a medium.”

The LEGO Burj Khalifa is available for purchase from June 1 in LEGO brand retail stores, LEGOLAND Stores and online at http://shop.lego.com/ and online retailers, as well as at the At the Top, Burj Khalifa retail boutique located in The Dubai Mall.

Kind of a snooze fest if you ask me. I can probably build it with my own parts just looking at the pic.
