LEGO Launches 2,585-Piece Globe Set

You can put the whole world in your hands—after you build it, that is. LEGO just released the Ideas 21332 The Globe Set, a build that creates a vintage earth globe with 2,585 pieces. The globe comes as a part of the LEGO Ideas crowdsourcing platform, and was created by Guillaume Roussel. Best of all, this planetary orb actually spins on its own axis, making use of a Tecnic core to do so.

The set also includes labels for each of the major continents and the oceans that glow in the dark, just in case you get lost as you explore our world. A ship and a compass also adorn the globe. “What is so wonderful about this set is that, with a little imagination, it allows fanst o discover the world through LEGO bricks,” says Frederico Begher, the Head of Global Marketing for Adults for the LEGO Group.

“The globe is a symbol of dreams and aspirations of travel to come for all who are seeking a bit of adventure or for those looking to learn about our world. When reviewing Guillaume’s set we could see the passion he had for travel and adventure, but also for inspiring building fans everywhere. Our designers also relished the challenge of making the set spin.”
