Architecture Eiffel Tower now available

The Eiffel Tower

I've received several reports this morning that the Eiffel Tower Architecture model is now available in Europe. Patrick sent us this image and says he bought it in Spiel und Freizeit, Augsburg, Germany, so it's not confined to France, it seems.

I believe it will be more widely available, including at shop.LEGO.com, on 1st January. We hope to bring you a review of it then.

What color is it? I can't imagine they'd do the whole thing in Metallic Silver, but it sure looks like that in the photo.

I already got it. It is great!!

@oddtodd it is standard gray, only the grille parts are metallic silver.

Looks pretty awesome. Doesn't seem to be as much "parts spam" as some of the Architecture sets have been (like the Leaning Tower of Pisa).

Lol @copper, ikr? I have a small LEGO budget for early next year and every theme is producing such good sets.. :'(

Very odd color choices. The real thing is closer to copper, or actually tan.

I can only guess the splash of silver is a poor attempt at distracting from yet another inflated price.

As I commented on the forum back in October, they should have called it "The Eiffel Tower at night", and done it in some shade of orange. That would've been bold. As long as the thing is bley, anything over 3 cents per part is a rip-off — that is, if you can't already build it out of spare parts right now.

Yes, a tan would be more appropriate but maybe there isn't enough parts availability in that color?

And honestly, the Eiffel Tower is an iconic shape more than anything. I bet most people couldn't even tell you what color it is.

Well, the Eiffel tower is made out Iron, and besides, aren't there enough Architecture sets made out of tan parts?

This set is coming out on January 1, 2014, according to Lego.com(in the U.S.).
