Analysis of 2016 LEGO Architecture sets...
I'm really excited about LEGO Architecture, so naturally I was thrilled to see that high-res photos of four of the new 2016 LEGO Architecture sets are here!
The biggest news is the introduction of a third series within the the LEGO Architecture product line! "Cityscapes" feature several iconic buildings from cities around the world in a single model, joining the existing "Architect" and "Landmark" series.The four 2016 LEGO Architecture sets (including the new "cityscapes".)
I'm thrilled to try the new sets, and see what additional Cityscapes we have in the future. I'm also excited to see at least one more large-scale model this year - The Burj Khalifa (albeit an updated version of a model from 2011.) Lots more analysis, including expected piece counts and prices, more details on the standard base used on all three cityscape models and more at http://brickarchitect.com/2015/lego-architecture-2016-preview/
P.S. There is also a rumour of a further UK and New York set this year, I'm personally hoping for a detailed model of the Chrysler building, but One WTC seems like a good guess as well. What do you think, what UK or New York buildings should be added to the series?

I thought the UK set was going to be Buckingham Palace and as for the US set I think we can rule out anything that comes with the Cityscapes as two of the same in one year would be odd, I would say it will be something outside of New York but what I don't know. Golden Gate Bridge would be cool and we have not had any bridges yet, I would like a Tower Bridge to go with my Tower Bridge and it to sit next to my Big Ben and Big Ben.
FYI I will be posting a review of the three Cityscapes on New Elementary on Dec 1st.
Sadly, any photos I share will be in black-and-white to cover up the fact that I used somewhat random colors since I don't have a large LEGO collection. (I was lucky that I had even one of part# 62361, but for some odd reason not two...)
The names of the two landmarks is known but the information came from a retailers' list so it would be inappropriate foe me to divulge them.
Can you tell us the prices of the ones you have and also wink if its Buckingham Palace.
The Venice one is nice, but I think it will look better leaving off the Rialto, and adding the Doge's palace, putting the bridge of sighs round the back. In fact, moving the bell tower and adding the clock tower will make a nice St Mark's square.
It took about an hour to build. This set will be a great source for LEGO Part #87087 (Brick, stud 1 side), and 2412 (1x2 Grille). I don't have the new #18674 2x2 round jumper, so I improvised.

I'm excited to finish the model later tonight.
They look absolutely awesome.Its exactly the type of set I wanted from architecture, Other then a big sky scraper. Will get the new York one for sure as that one clearly looks best,bit in doubt about the other 2.
They do seem to have different seizes,the new York one I estimate at around 700 pieces and 100$ retail. The berlin one looks considerably smaller and is to small to my liking.
New York City 598
I really like the use of a Collectable Minifigures trophy to represent Lady Liberty!
