There are many impressive structures and royal buildings across many LEGO sub-themes. Young builders love to create the secret lairs of superheroes or the grand palaces of Disney princesses. Then there is a cut off, where the glamour and color fade away and the structures become more real and architectural. We jump from the childhood fun of Cinderella to the modern wonders of Buckingham Palace and Sydney Opera House. The LEGO Creator Expert Taj Mahal 10256 Set offers a nice mid-way point. There is the wow factor of one of the grandest royal buildings in the world, with the detail and realism of the best architectural LEGO sets.
The color and glitter of Disney is replaced with the classic look and simple elegance of Agra
The Taj Mahal is a structure recognizable to many across the world. We may not know much about it, but we can instantly name it because of the perfect symmetry of those domes and minarets around the outside. The reflecting pool also gives the game away, but that is not part of this set unless builders want to add their own. The great thing about this Creator Expert Taj Mahal set is that it recreates that symmetry and those clean lines perfectly. Each of the four sides is identical. This means careful craftsmanship of the small details. At least it works as a 7-part modular build to make things easier.
Those small details are important, as there are a lot of them. There are just over 5,900 bricks here in total. This helps to create those classic domes, as well as the many balconies, arches and other decorative elements. This 16+ LEGO kit comes with some interesting bow elements and transparent bricks to add to the appeal.
This LEGO Creator Expert Sets LEGO Taj Mahal 10256 Set is a timeless classic for all kinds of LEGO lovers
This may be a re-released set from 2008, but that doesn’t matter to keen LEGO fans. For a start, it gives younger builders a chance to challenge themselves with a set they missed the first time around. There is also a timeless quality to this build where age doesn’t matter. The real Taj Mahal was commissioned in 1631 and draws countless visitors each year. This 2008 still captures this modern wonder with great detail and thought. It is a must have for those that love architectural build and intricate challenges.
