With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, today we get our first look at this exciting new model. The next LEGO Eiffel Tower will fall on the biggest shopping night of the year and stacks up to 10,001 pieces

First Look at the LEGO Eiffel Tower
Sent to 9to5Toys, the main image finally gives builders a first look at what to expect from the latest interpretation of the LEGO Eiffel Tower. Arriving as number 10307, this new recreation will deservedly be the largest release ever stacked up to an impressive 10,001 bricks. That’ll not only earn it the biggest kit status this year, but also so far (unless you count the world map tile, which is even higher but not quite a worthwhile display to be defined like this).
While the box art doesn’t show too much, we still get a first look at the actual design. There’s nothing fancy here for a brick model of the Eiffel Tower, but the model shows some of the intricate techniques that will be used to pull off the massive height. When fully assembled, the kit will stack up to 57 inches tall, which also makes it the tallest model ever. The base of the kit contains some small scenery below suitable for Paris, France, and completes the kit with more intricate details to match the massive structural design of the current tower.
Just as we originally reported, prices will come to $679.99 when the new set drops on Black Friday. There will be a bundled gift with the purchase that ties into the Eiffel Tower theme of an apartment building for the monument engineer. We’ve already covered what to expect on this front in September, and at this time we have nothing new to share.
With only weeks to go until launch, it shouldn’t take long for the LEGO Group to officially reveal the creation. I’d bet we’ll see a reveal sometime next week, with tomorrow or Tuesday November 15 being as good as a guess. LEGO likes to reveal new creations at 9:00 AM EST, so we’ll be sure to share official news once it all drops in the next few days.
