In 2007, LEGO released an advanced model of the Eiffel Tower 10181. It is approximately 1:300 scale and consists of 3428 pieces.
The model is a towering 42.5″ (108 cm) high with a base measuring 20″ x 20″ (50 cm x 50 cm). Due to the height, the model is designed to be taken apart into three sections.
As it has been discontinued for a few years, the prices have risen and is hard to find.
It is one of the largest LEGO sets ever released but not many people have the space to build and display it.
So it is a good news for many people that LEGO has re-introduced another Eiffel Tower under the Architecture theme.
This set comes just after the recently released The Leaning Tower of Pisa 21015 and sells at the same price point.
This new Eiffel Tower set is a lot smaller then the first release and would fit neatly on the desk or book shelf.
Year Released: 2014
