On the top level of the LEGO House, when it opens in September, you will find the Masterpiece Gallery: a space filled with models contributed by AFOLs from around the world. This space has eight skylights, arranged as the studs of a 2×4 brick. In the space between the studs, there will be three round podiums representing the tubes in a 2×4 brick: each with a very special model in position.
At the recent Fan Media Days, Senior Designer in LEGO House, Stuart Harris, was able to reveal that the three giant models on the three podiums in the gallery will be a LEGODUPLO dinosaur, a LEGOTECHNIC dinosaur and a LEGO SYSTEM dinosaur. Building the same dinosaur in these three systems will result in a very different result reinforcing the message about the endless possibilities of the LEGO brick.
Input for these models was received from a group of 26 AFOLs from around the world, and specific aspects of interest to their design was taken to the model design team. Look out for the Neat Parts Usage in some of the photos below.
