LEGO Night: 21003 Seattle Space Needle

February 3, 2010

We picked up the 21003 Seattle Space Needle LEGO set when we were in Seattle, Washington last year, at the Space Needle gift store, and finally got around to building it.  It’s part of the Landmark series of LEGO Architecture sets.

It’s not a terribly complicated LEGO set, being only 57 pieces.  Though it says on the back of the box that it’s 8.7 inches tall, I visualized it being a bit bigger.  But it was kind of fun to see how they realized the look of the Space Needle with a limited amount of pieces.

One thing that was interesting is you actually cut the long curvy leg bits down to a specific size before threading them in.  I don’t recall having to cut a LEGO piece before (not that I’m an expert by any means!).

More photos of the box and the completed set below.
