Every year a unique experience called the LEGO® Inside Tour, which gives fans a chance to see behind scenes of the LEGO Group. For each years event a special set is created to give to those who participate in the tour. Last year fans received a special version of the LEGO House Tree of Creatitivy, which stands as the centerpiece of the Billund based attraction. It’s has now been revealed via the LEGO Ambassador Network, that a new retail version of the Tree of Creativity will be available exclusively from the LEGO House this March, the set is slightly smaller that the Inside Tour version but it’s still a fun looking little set. This set is the third Billund exclusive release connected to the LEGO House, with a prototype Architecture set available from local Billund stores and a newer Architecture set available from the attractions store. Plus there is also an Billund airport exclusive set, based on the airport itself. Check out the set detail along with a few details about it.
In the midst of LEGO House stands one of the world’s most iconic LEGO models, at over 15m tall and packed full of details and surprises even the most avid LEGO enthusiast cannot fail to be impressed by the Tree of Creativity. The tree is constructed from 6.316.611 standard LEGO bricks and took 23.500 hours to assemble to create an incredible and unique LEGO model.
And now a LEGO small scale model of this tree will be exclusively available at the LEGO Store in LEGO House, Billund.
The LEGO model is a great reproduction of the giant tree. All the most iconic features have been resized into this retail model.
The real LEGO enthusiast will know that the LEGO Group launched a Tree of Creativity model back in May 2017. That particular model was developed as the surprise gift for the participants of the LEGO Inside Tour. The product developed for Inside Tour only comes out in 175 individually numbered boxes.
Senior designer Steen Sig Andersen who originally also designed the first model was asked to do a retail version for LEGO House.
Steen Sig Andersen says:” The former Tree of Creativity box has proven to be an iconic model for the LEGO House and it makes a lot of sense to also offer a Tree of Creativity to the guests of LEGO House. But it was very important that the two models were not identical as we would not take away the originality from the Inside Tour guests in 2017”
Steen Sig Andersen’s efforts resulted in a very nice retail version which is slightly smaller than the LEGO Inside Tour model. The model is exclusively available at LEGO House in Billund and the retail price is 599 DKK. The LEGO Inside Tour model is not for sale.
