Toy manufacturer LEGO has unveiled a new Beatles mosaic set that will allow fans to create pop art portraits of the Fab Four.
The Beatles mosaic portrait set is one of the four sets launched by LEGO under the brand LEGO Art, aimed at an adult audience. The other three sets are Iron Man, Marilyn Monroe, and Star Wars.
The Beatles’ version comes with an accompanying soundtrack designed to “immerse you in stories and unexpected details about the band.”
“Music lovers can bring Beatle-fandom into the home with a Lego portrait of their favorite band member, whether it’s John Lennon, Sir Paul McCartney, George Harrison or Sir Ringo Starr,” noted a press release announcing the line. “Each set can be used to create four unique portraits or collect four and display the full band side-by-side.”
Each set contains about 3,000 pieces, a new brick separator, several new elements, an exclusive signature tile, and instructions and extra parts to build 3 or 4 different designs.
The sets, which come in boxes with the pieces in pre-sorted color, are priced at US $119.99 | CAN $149.99 | UK £114.99. The Beatles set will be available globally from LEGO and various retailers starting August 1st, except in the U.S., where it will be out on September 1st.
LEGO hopes that LEGO Art will be “a new canvas for creative expression” that allows adults to relax and give them a chance to create and display art based on their passions.
