Travel By Lego: Tower Bridge, Missed the Taj Mahal

A combination of my passion for travel, London and Lego has come from the toy manufacturer's world buildings collection. After missing out on the Taj Mahal (which sold out due to David Beckham), this Lego exclusive of London's Tower Bridge will keep me busy for several hours or at worst until my next trip to London. Although not the same, the retail product is similar to the Tower Bridge found in the Legoland amusement parks.

From the product description:

  • Includes 4 miniature vehicles: a black London taxi, a yellow truck, green automobile and even a traditional red double-decker bus!
  • Features the iconic paired towers and a drawbridge that really opens and closes!
  • Includes unique printed shield!
  • Features hundreds of 1x1 slopes in tan!
  • Many useful arches, angular bricks in tan!
  • Includes 4 blue base plates and over 80 windows!
  • Tower Bridge is ideal for building and display - it can be taken apart in sections for easy transport!
  • Add this amazing landmark to your LEGO world buildings collection!
  • Completed model measures an impressive 40" (102 cm) long, 17" (45 cm) high and 10" (26 cm) wide.
The set is available at Lego stores, the online Lego shop. The online price is $239.99. Prices in stores varies depending on location. The set is also available on Let's justify this. It's cheaper than visiting the real thing in person.
