21042 - Statue of Liberty

Recommended Posts

Love this. Might have to try and rework the neck but this looks great. The beige stonework and body look spot on next to the real-life picture. Have always wanted the larger model but this looks like a great alternative :)

Not bad, but I'd like a face of some sort, even if printed. Far better than that halfarsed Great Wall of China.

Not blown away by this. The base looks fine but I don't think lady liberty herself works.

Why is the arm so short? It's clearly too short in the image on the box showing the side-by-side with the real one.

Yep good point. The more I look at this set the less I like it.

the problem is that it does a poor job of representing the human form of the statue. The base looks great as it's a brick structure anyway, but the contrast between the quality of the base vs. the Awkwardness of the statue doesn't help

Tourists who travel to New York and see the statue will not care about the accuracy of this set as much as I think people from the U.S. will. They will look at this as a memory or a gift they can buy to remember seeing it while on vacation. 

Same as I have a couple sets from Europe, even if I don’t know if it’s exactly accurate.

People are hating on this way too much, I think it's a pretty interesting build. I do agree if they used the plate, why not do a printed one, and laughed at the excellent MS Paint above.

I agree.  There needs to be more love in the world.  No reason to hate pentagons.

If you're ever bored one day and happen to have 12 pentagons laying around, why not make a dodecahedron out of them?
