After yesterday’s leaks of their newest Creator Landmark Building set, 10253 Big Ben, LEGO followed up by sending out the official assets for the set. The set contains 4,163 pieces, has an MSRP of $249.99 USD, and will be available starting July 1 at LEGO Shop@Home and Brand Retail locations worldwide.
We only received six pictures of the set, four of which are of the front of the box. You can get a lot more details by watching the designer video, embedded below. There is a function to move the hands of the four clocks but the minute and hour hand move at the same time and are not independent of each other. There’s only so much LEGO can do. There’s a dial on the side that you can spin and the hands will spin with it. You can also lift the top off of Elizabeth Tower to take a peek at Big Ben’s bells.
