We can’t get no satisfaction — At least not until we finish building the 1,998-piece LEGO Art Rolling Stones logo. This new set features the band’s internationally known tongue logo in celebration of the Rolling Stones’ 60th anniversary.
The logo, first seen on the Stones’ Sticky Fingers album 50 years ago, is the first shaped set in the LEGO Art line, which has previously only offered square, framed designs. The set also moves away from using only round studs, instead incorporating a variety of LEGO brick types to build a textured, 3D appearance. The set also has a hidden surprise for fans: While building it, you construct the number 60 (in celebration of the anniversary) underneath the top layer of LEGO bricks.
However, like previous LEGO Art kits, this set includes a soundtrack that features an hour of tailor-made content — including an interview with John Pasche, the graphic designer who created the logo for the Rolling Stones back in 1970.
Once built, the logo is 22 inches high and 18.5 inches wide, making it a great display piece for music lovers looking to showcase their fandom or anyone who wants edgy new wall decor.
The LEGO Art the Rolling Stones set will be available on June 1 at lego.com and all LEGO retailers for $149.99.
