Build the world’s best-known clock tower!
Get up close to Big Ben! The clock was first started on May 31st 1859, and Big Ben’s first chime rang from the 96-meter Elizabeth Tower on July 11th of the same year. This over 23” (60cm) high LEGO® interpretation of the iconic structure is a tribute to its engineering and architecture. It features a detailed facade with statues, shields and windows, and a clock tower with 4 adjustable clock dials and a removable roof allowing access to the belfry, plus buildable exterior elements including a sidewalk, lawn and a tree depicting the building’s location. This model makes a great display piece for the home or office.
Big Ben features a detailed section of the Westminster Palace and the adjoining Elizabeth Tower, 4 detailed clock dials with movable hour and minutes hands, and a sidewalk, tree and grass area depicting the building’s location.
Remove the top of the tower to access the Big Ben bell.

It looks pretty incredible, if a bit of a repetitive build, but such is architecture.
It appears that the clock hands are made out of some of those tools, and the rest are just leftover...why they bothered to show these leftover pieces is beyond me though.dho7622u wrote:Really looks great... but what is the deal with the sets of "tools" next to the brick separator?
I think the real Ben is currently undergoing repairs. I guess you can use them for a repair crew MOD.pro_zach wrote:It appears that the clock hands are made out of some of those tools, and the rest are just leftover...why they bothered to show these leftover pieces is beyond me though.dho7622u wrote:Really looks great... but what is the deal with the sets of "tools" next to the brick separator?
