I think that was a "company only" set from some Japanese mining company. I saw it on Eurobricks (i think) a while back

It's definitely for a niche market, so that wouldn't surprise me.

I know I'm late to this thread, but I just want to get pedantic for a second and clarify that the Shinkai Sub set wasn't part of the Architecture line, but rather part of a Japan based project called Cuusoo where individuals submit ideas and plans for a set, vote on them, and the most popular are greenlit and released (sort of like the Factory/DesignByMe sets that were available internationally). That was the first set produced from the program, the second will be an asteroid surveyor satellite... but it still needs more votes to move forward.

That Farnsworth House set looks like a nice way to get a lot of white 1x1 and 2x2 tiles.

Burj Khalifa is lame. Every six year old has made one of those out of rainbow colors. The Architecture line should focus on distinctive buildings. Other than the size, Burj Khalifa is just another nondescript tower without personality.

I feel the same way about the Sears Tower and John Hancock Center models as well.

On the plus side, you could probably build this set on the cheap using parts available at your average pick-a-brick wall.

Looks like another Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece is up next - the Frederick C. Robie House.

I never even knew they did the Farnsworth House as a lego set, and I live 20 miles from it /cry
