Lego Architecture Has Announced a Bigger and Better Version of Its White House

By Shabana Arif on at

The Lego Architecture range is full of iconic buildings from around the world and the White House is returning to the collection this summer.

We've previously had a Lego White House in the Architecture lineup, but that was way back in 2010, so it's long gone now along with 2012's scaffolding-free Big Ben. But we're getting a bigger - and probably better - version of the president's pad where he spends his downtime in-between golf clubs, although we've yet to get a peek at the thing.

The announcement comes from the International Toy Fair in Nuremberg, Germany, and is labelled 18+ which seems odd to a non-Lego fan like me. The last White House was 12+ so maybe it's got something to do with the amount of pieces? According to the box, it's made up of 3,700 pieces, but German website Zusammengebaut, who reported the news, says that this is a bugger up, and it actually contains around 1,500 pieces.

If you're thinking of eyeing this up as a new centrepiece for your dining room table (or wherever you people display your Lego) then be warned: it's pretty sizeable, measuring 50cm wide. This will no doubt be fantastic news to those of you who thought the original one was too small, and there are more than a few disgruntled brick fanatics on Amazon who would agree.

There's no info on price or availability other than the vague summertime window, so settle in. It's going to be a long wait. [Brick Fanatics]
