21036 Arc de Triomphe was revealed at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in January but the first official image has not arrived until today. It shows some intricate reliefs on each face of the arch as well as the Eternal Flame above the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the centre.

The set will be available on the 1st of August and will cost $39.99 in the US or €34.99 in Germany. The UK price has yet to be confirmed.

Not their best effort. The shape's all wrong, particularly around the top.

I know there's constraints on detail because of the scale, but the overall proportions should be a lot closer. When you consider what a good job they've done with other structures (e.g. Buckingham Palace) it makes you wonder how many sheep will get burned in protest at this..... ;-)

Does somebody know the dimensions of this set? You can't read them on the pictures.

The design is very poor :/

It looks nice enough, but may have translated better as a larger scale model.

I think it looks great!

Not the best they've done, looks a little rushed to me

Interesting use of parts, even if they aren't the most accurate.

Hopefully this is one day made into a bigger set, and proportions particularly at the top are done much better than this. This one looks quite sloppy.

It is like many of the small scale architecture models, it captures the place well enough to be easily recognizable but not that well if you know the monument well and look at the exact proportions.

I reckon one extra brick in the bottom half would give it about the right proportions, at least the ratios of the upper vs lower sections.

The rocker bases are perfect for the details going all the way around, but like others have said, there's not much else...

@chris.spyder: Considering the scale the two aren't really comparable...

I have to say I'm not impressed. It looks too plain and there are no new pieces or recolors.

Looks like I am in the minority, but I find this set beautiful...

It looks great, but I am not a fan of these.

Nothing I will buy, to much basic pieces.

kinggregus : Its no less worse than Lincoln Memorial.. I dare to say LM is much worse.. probably the very worst of entire architecture set.

Arc de poor design

I like it. Not the best I assume cause of the scale. Maybe down the road they'll make a larger set like the 'ideas' one others have mentioned...more details and reliefs.
I'll still pick it up. Good desktop model to side with the Eiffel Tower I have and Louvre. Little Paris diorama on my desk...vive la france!

A creator version next year will be good .

Some clever parts usage but one I'll be able to pass up without much regret.

Dang you guys are tough critics. It's a remarkable likeness at such a small scale made from...LEGO!

By in Germany,

I appreciate the effort, as well as some clever parts usage. But overall the design looks worse than many of their other latest Architecture sets. I'll pass.

Not all the landmarks are suitable to be captured in small sized models in the same way. Maybe this one, somehow "blocky", should have deserved a bit more detail to add appeal and interest to the model.

Well if people aren't satisfied with this then maybe LEGO should have made it a d2c like the Big Ben set because the intricate detail cant really be captured at this scale, though it is instantly recognisable and a nice representation for the scale it is at.

its the Arc de Full Retreat.
