EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Build a piece of art history with the LEGO Art Andy Warhol's Marilyn Monroe. Inspired by Warhol's pop art portrait of Marilyn Monroe, this 3,341-piece set, model number 31197, allows fans to build their own Marilyn portrait in one of four ways. This is definitely for the collector and someone who has the time and patience to put it together. It took us about three hours to build, but you're building one square at a time, and the whole thing is made up of nine individual squares. To make the building experience more of an immersive art experience, listen to the curated soundtrack. You'll also hear unexpected details and audio stories related to the set. And more information about Warhol and Monroe can be found in the instruction book. The finished build measures 15.5 by 15.5 inches and has an exclusive Andy Warhol signature block.

If you're more of a superhero fan, build the LEGO Art Marvel Studios Iron Man set, model number 31199. This comes with 3,167 pieces for building a portrait of Iron Man in one of three ways: the Mark III, the Hulkbuster Mark I, or the Mark LXXXV. If you buy three sets, you can combine all the pieces for the ultimate Iron Man work of art. This is another one that's going to take time to build, but it also has a curated playlist for you to listen to as you build with stories and details about the set. The instruction booklet also includes information about the LEGO designers and Iron Man's history. The whole thing is made up of nine individual squares, and you build one square at a time. Finish the 15.5 x 15.5-inch work with an official Iron Man nameplate.

Is It Fun?

The LEGO Art sets will be perfect for display in your home gallery. Even the instructions have a coffee table book quality to them. We didn't really mind it taking so long because the whole experience was actually quite relaxing. If you're an art lover and a LEGO fan, you'll really enjoy building a work of art using traditional LEGO bricks and circular pieces.
