1st August is going to be an expensive day for LEGO collectors. Not only is the LEGO NES coming out that day, but there’s also the long-awaited LEGO Ideas Grand Piano too.
First announced two years ago, it seems the Grand Piano has been through one heck of a development, getting the Ideas prototype into a working model that can be sold to the public. But LEGO has done it, and LEGO 21323 Ideas Grand Piano will be out on 1st August in LEGO stores and from LEGO online.
It’s not cheap though: the RRP is £319.99. But for that you get 3,662 pieces and app-powered motorisation.
The set utilises LEGO’s Powered Up app to activate a motor, which moves the keys. While the keys will move, it seems like the music will actually come from the app. You can set one of ten pre-programmed songs playing, or use the app to program your own.
Sadly, it doesn’t sound like you’ll simply be able to tickle the ivories of this one, so to speak.
Still! For any collector, this looks like an absolutely striking model. At 30.5 cm wide, 35.5cm deep and 22.5cm tall, it’s quite hefty, and will need a decent amount of space dedicated to displaying it.
Take a look at some more images below. Will you be buying the LEGO Ideas Grand Piano?
