Eiffel Tower Day 6 (Build Journal)

I finished building the LEGO® Eiffel Tower today. Three instruction manuals, 10,001 bricks, and 17 hours of build time are now behind me. The set is monstrous when complete. We’ve all heard it is nearly five feet tall. In fact, I have said that numerous times myself in the content I’ve produced for this set….

Eiffel Tower Day 5 (Build Journal)

I continued with the third instruction manual during Eiffel Tower, Day 5. During the process, I completed bags 52 through 65 of the set. Once again, I found myself building support struts and cross-supports. However, there was also a small platform that mixed things up a little. I built a little less in this round,…

Eiffel Tower Day 4 (Build Journal)

During my Eiffel Tower, Day 4 build session, I started the third instruction manual. I built my way through bags 41 – 51. You guess it, that meant four more support struts and a sea of grey parts. It was very repetitive. Similar to previous sessions, I built for approximately three hours today. Consequently, my…

Eiffel Tower Day 3 (Build Journal)

Additionally, I build the platform for the mid section of the tower. This was actually quite an enjoyable portion of the build as it was not overly repetitive. I built bags…

If you missed out on previous journal entries, we’ve already taken a look at the unboxing and the base construction. Today’s build took…

Unboxing the Eiffel Tower (Build Journal)

The LEGO® Eiffel Tower is a monster of a set. When fully built, it will measure almost 1.5 m high (nearly five feet). At 10,001 bricks, it is the second largest set ever produced in terms of brick count. However, it is the tallest set the LEGO® Group has ever issued. Since it is not…

Eiffel Tower Coming Soon!

It’s that time of year again, and I’m not just talking about VIP Weekend and Black Friday. Typically, it is around this time of year that the LEGO® Group treats us with a new monster collector’s set. In 2020, the Colosseum dethroned the UCS Millennium Falcon as the largest LEGO® set ever. In 2021, we…
