Lighthouses are a bit of a niche area of interest for set builders and collectors, but there is no denying the immediate visual appeal of the Ideas Motorized Lighthouse 21335 Lego Set. Furthermore, there is the promise of great moving parts for added realism.
Help Protect Lives Or Steal Treasure With This Maritime Set
Let's start with probably the main reason that people want this set - the motorized elements. The beauty of this lighthouse goes beyond the structure and design via a brilliant motorized light. You can set this up with compatible lights to shine a bright beacon to any LEGO ships in the distance and protect any LEGO seaside communities you might have set up. This rotation of the light and the custom Fresnel lens gives a sense of realism that younger builders may not appreciate. On top of this, you can also enjoy the glow from the fireplace inside the cottage.
This is an inviting place to stay, even all the way out on this rocky outcrop, and it becomes the perfect home for the lighthouse keeper and his cat. The only problem is that there is also an inviting cave underneath. This provides a whole new story element for teenagers that want more than just a nice model to build. This cave is home to some hidden treasure, maybe from an old LEGO pirate ship lost at sea, and a local sailor is quite keen to get a hold of it via his rowboat - as long as the lighthouse keeper doesn't spot him first. If you wanted, figures from other pirate sets could get in on the action too.
Build This Impressively Tall Beacon From The Rocks To The Lamp
This big LEGO set for adults is undeniably impressive with its grand scale and beautiful classic design. There are 2065 pieces in total, so there is some skill required to get this model completed. The main build is of course the tower with the light on top. But, you also get enough detailed features for the interior home, the rocks, and extra accessories like the boat and the seagull. The finished tower stands 54cm high, so will stand out in a collection, while the base is 25cm deep and wide. Overall, this Ideas Motorized Lighthouse 21335 Lego Set is something a bit different for those that lean towards sets with an engineering theme. It is engaging, fun to build, and creative to play with.
