LEGO Art is a new product line from LEGO that uses LEGO to create art pieces. Essentially LEGO Art is a guided jigsaw puzzle.
LEGO Art launched in Singapore on 1st August 2020, and at launch, there are four different types of art pieces.
- Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe 31197
- The Beatles 31198
- Marvel Studios Iron Man 31199
- Star Wars The Sith 31200
Each LEGO Art piece measures 40 cm x 40 cm and retails for S$219.90.
You can choose to build one of three different variants of the LEGO Art piece.
If you are feeling rich, you can even buy three of the same LEGO Art pieces and combine them to form an even larger LEGO Art piece (120 cm x 40 cm). LEGO calls this the ultimate build.
The LEGO Art Marvel Studios Iron Man 31199 is a 3,167 piece build.
The three variants of the LEGO Art Marvel Studios Iron Man 31199 are:
- Iron Man Mark III
- Iron Man Mark LXXXV
- Iron Man HulkBuster Mark I
Since I have two LEGO Iron Man HulkBuster build (LEGO The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition 76105 and LEGO The Hulk Buster Smash 76031), I went with the Iron Man HulkBuster Mark I art.
The build is divided into nine 16 x 16 frames. So you build frame by frame. It took me about 18 minutes to complete a frame, which works out to be slightly more than a minute for each of the 16 rows. My total build time is about three hours.
I would recommend labeling the plastic bag with a marker from 1 to 15, so you can easily find the correct piece. I went row by row, and I put a ruler on the instructions booklet as a guide for the row that I am building.
