The key here is to keep it away from the 100 lbs of LEGO my son has.

There's a whole goddamn line of Lego Architecture? Why was I not informed?!

white lego blocks?! What will they think of next?

Saw these at BAM! several months ago. One of the sets was, effectively, 1,000 studs and a few odd pieces to get everything held together.

They wanted $200 for it. So I skipped it.

This one doesn't seem all that exciting to me, unless you just really need white bricks.

In other words, a box of white Legos

Are there actually adults that don't have children that still buy Legos for their own personal use?

I can't really think of anything BAD about that, but it just seems odd. There are sets I've wanted to buy but just didn't ever justify it.

Oh! They are like Lego but WHITE!

I want a set in all concrete grey to build my very own miniature Brutalist paradise.

They're sold at Barnes & Noble. You know, that place where people drink Starbucks while staining books.

Weren't they doing this already but with colored blocks? When I visit the Robbie House, they have all sorts of different Frank Lloyd Wright architectures in LEGO form. If they are going to do adult LEGOS, then why can't they make the damn Shaun of the Dead LEGO set?!?!?!

I actually have worked Legos into my corporate expenses as part of training activities. I just recently expensed $500 worth of sets.

Okay, which one of you is thinking about building a replica Frank LLoyd Wright house out of Lego?

My (ex)wife got me the Lego Mindstorms Robotics kit our first Christmas married.  It was awesome.  The next year she got me extremely sexy lingerie in her size (yes, she wore it that night, well, not for long).  She had remembered a comment I had made, "men who buy women lingerie are really buying something for themselves."

She started out cool.  It took a few years for her to complete the biatch transformation.

This actually seems really cool. Haven't been into Lego for a while, but I might pick up a couple of these sets.

Some people ask, "I'm an adult, how do I justify it?"

I prefer to ask, "I'm an adult, why do I have to justify it?"

You want Lego? Go treat yourself to some damn Lego. Fark anyone that thinks you have to justify it to them.

There is at least 3 sets available now, or do you mean a life size house, in which case James May has some tips for you.

They've been around for a while. They're neat, they'd make a good desk piece for work since they're pretty small, but they're horribly overpriced, even by Lego standards.

Got the Fallingwater set for my birthday. Nice booklet with the history of the build laid out. Took about 6 hours to build while watching tv. Thank you awesome girlfriend.

I have Fallingwater unopened on my bookshelf. I've been looking for a good lazy day to build it.

I finished Fallingwater in about 8 interrupted hours.  I have two other sets waiting.  My issue is how to keep my son from getting into my sets. Telling him to play with his own Lego just gets me a dirty look from the wife.

When we were on our last Disney vacation I took my 10 year old son to the LEGO store at Downtown Disney to spend some birthday money. One of the sets he chose was the Guggenheim from the architecture series.

It was a serious WTF moment for me...what kind of ten year old chooses THAT while in LEGO heaven?

Went to LEGOLAND Atlanta this past weekend with the family, they already have.

/was a good time, but they need a separate venue to increase the space

new?  I'm pretty sure I've seen theses in Barnes and Noble stores for well over a year now.  there's the FLW collection as well as other famous international landmark kits including the Burj Khalifa

This is the newest set in the line. Instead of being a specific landmark it is a freebuild kit with a nearly 300 page inspiration and design book written and edited by architects.

Same here. The book is pretty cool. I guess I might build it some day. Cant see it ever being worth more than the hundred bucks I paid for it.

Whoever came up with the lego archeitecture series is a genius.

It's basically a way to market legos to adults by giving us the cover that it isn't a children's toy: it's got serious looking black & white packaging, has a four syllable word on the box, features historical landmarks, is usually placed on shelf space away from the "kids" legos and the instruction booklet is a glossy mini-magazine that gives the history of the building design.

I've got about six of them. I thought Big Ben and the White House in particular were fun builds.
//Had my 8 year old tell me to stop trying to talk him into buying a Batman lego set that I really wanted for myself. He was right.

I love to do this:

FLW was an asshole with no sense of proportion.  He was a short little prick who didn't believe in head room.  Fark him.

Yes, there are many of them. How is it any different from adults who enjoy puzzles or plastic models?
