Product Description

Product Description

The LEGO Architecture Sears Tower contains 69 LEGO bricks, building instructions and a booklet with historic archival material and photographs. This Landmark series construction model is designed by architectural artist Adam Reed Tucker. Builders of today or tomorrow can now construct the Sears Tower (Architect: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Chicago, IL 1970-74) in a LEGO replica. Ht: 9.00"/228mm. (Recommended ages 10+. Contains small parts. Not intended for children under 3 years.)

From the Manufacturer

When completed in 1973, the Willis Tower was the world's tallest building at 110 stories. Located in the heart of downtown Chicago, Illinois, USA, the striking Willis Tower was the first skyscraper to use an innovative 'bundled-tubular' design, which, as well as giving it a characteristic step-back appearance, also provides stability against high winds. Willis Tower also features some of the fastest double-decker express elevators, traveling to the 'sky lobbies' at a rapid 1,600 feet per minute. This LEGO Landmark series interpretation of Willis Tower was designed by US architect Adam Reed Tucker in collaboration with the LEGO design team.

I don't disagree with the previous reviewer that states you may be able to build this model with bricks you already own, but depending on the size of your brick collection that's true for practically any Lego set. To that end, Lego actually allows you to download directions for this and many other sets from their website at [...]

That, however, is not the point. This set and the rest of those in the Lego Architecture Series are less about being a typical Lego toy set and more about enjoying one specific artist's interpretation (Adam Reed Tucker) of major architectural landmarks of this and the last century. His own site, [...], does a nice job of explaining how these sets came to be.

With all of that as backdrop, I really enjoyed receiving this set (and several others in the series) as a gift. My five year old and I put them together as a team. She could do practically all of the real assembly, but we enjoyed talking about the real buildings and my exeriences being near and/or inside several of them in my travels. She was able to talk about basic concepts of their structures after assembling Mr. Tucker's interpretations in Lego form.

So, if you're looking for a traditional Lego toy, look to a different series of their sets. If you are an architecture buff or shopping for one the sets and the booklets that accompany those in this series are great fun.

This is a pretty cool set. It has 69 pieces. It took me about 2 minutes to build. I have it on the desk I have in my room. The cool part about the instructions is that it has a note from the person who created this model, and all of the facts about the building! I am going to buy more of the buildings/landscapes in this series soon, and probably some for my birthday. The set stands about 8 or 9 inches tall, and it has a baseplate with "Sears Tower" written of a flat black piece. This is a pretty cool set, and I honestly like it better than some bigger (not architecture) sets that I have. Overall, this set is extremely sturdy, my dog knocked it off the table and only one of the white pieces came off, so overall rating is 10/10. Oh, and I rated 5 for educational because it tells you all about the skyscraper.

Overall this piece isn't worth the price you'll pay. First, the tower is not big at all. As a result, there isn't much detail on it. Because it has so few pieces, chances are that if you have a bunch of legos yourself at home you could make this exacty thing already without having to buy this set. The cool thing though, like the other sets in the architecture series, is that it comes with an above average instruction sheet with nice colors and a detailed blueprint. Overall though it's not worth the price here or on the lego website itself. It can pretty easily be made from left over legos in your collection.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Allen Smalling TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 21, 2010
We Chicagoans are supposed to call it the 'Willis Tower' but undoubtedly will go on calling it 'Sears Tower' for years to come. I know there are instances that buildings in the LEGO Architecture line don't look quite realistic, but they did a good job on this one. Blame the Tower itself for being stark, but don't blame this LEGO kit for producing stark results, because they are realistic.

Sears Tower is conspicuous for its lack of detail. Other than the ground-floor plaza, all the glass is black, and its shape is ideal for mimicry by LEGO because it generates almost nothing but right angles. The main edifice, in fact, is given over to ninety-degree angles that create definitive flat edges and flat rooflines one-third of the way up to the top, and two-thirds of the way. (In fact, people who work in the Tower usually change elevators at floors 33 and 34 [connected by escalator], likewise floors 66 and 67; i.e., a third and two thirds of the way up, respectively.) A detail or two could be more solid--the real Tower's various rooftop microwave and broadcast antennae are not that symmetrical and the 103rd-floor viewing deck now sprouts little glass boxes if you want to stand there and have "nothing" underfoot. (Eek!)

Despite those minor details, I am giving this a successful four stars and recommend it for kids and architecture enthusiasts everywhere. Come visit us, too, and see North America's tallest occupied building for yourself!

I'm a lifelong LEGO fan, having grown up with a collection of LEGOs for as long as I can remember. As a resident of Chicago and a professional who works in the city, the model makes a great desk piece and conversation starter. The Willis Tower model is small (the building itself is only 7 1/2" tall, or just under 9" with the "antenna"), and with less than 70 pieces, is quick to put together. The base has been updated to reflect the building name change (from Sears Tower to Willis Tower). I think the LEGO Architecture series is very cool aesthetically, but it's not much fun in terms of the classic take-it-apart and put-it-together LEGO tradition. As an adult, it is fun and interesting on a desk or display shelf; I do not think it would be a lot of fun for children unless they were really into architecture, buildings, or had a particular attachment to the Willis Tower. LEGOs are historically rather expensive, and this series is no exception. I would NOT pay more than discounted $19 or $20 dollars. The asking retail price of $24.99 seems high, and I would NEVER pay the markup prices I've seen asked for resale. A real enthusiast could recreate the model from a moderate collection without much difficulty at all - but, the kit is great for out-of-the-box ease. If you are looking for a thoughtful gift for that adult LEGO lover in your life, this might be a good choice.
