Lego‘s upcoming building set is not primarily based on a TV present, just like the set, or on a real-life constructing, like set. It is as an alternative primarily based on the true typewriter of firm founder Ole Kirk Kristiansen.
The 2,079-block set comes out July 1 for $200 and as soon as constructed works like an precise typewriter, although with out the ink. An inner carriage strikes because the letters are struck, and it could possibly even take a chunk of paper in its rollers. A cloth crimson and black spool is a primary for Lego and completes the classic typewriter look.
Lego recommends the typewriter for builders age 18 and over. Lego VIPs can buy the set on June 16; everybody else should wait until July 1.
