Hey. My name is Ilya, and I am 28 years old. I say this because I really really wanted (I don't know why) a LEGO constructor. But my infantilism can be justified by the fact that the company is positioning this particular set as intended for people over 18 years old. No, there is no porn, violence, sex, alcohol or drugs. There's a piano in there.
No, seriously, a piano:
I am delighted to have this set as a child: awesome! Moreover, collecting it from all 3662 parts, you can understand the approximate construction of a real grand piano!
Yes, this piano has a hammer action. And something like the semblance of strings and a cast iron frame:
And it also works in about the same sequence as a real piano:
Of course, two octaves will not be enough to play a real masterpiece … But you understand my hints? You can play it! Of course, the piano itself will not produce sounds – it acts only as a kind of midi-controller for a special application on your smartphone:
Once you've assembled your piano, you can practice five different songs:
And when you have learned all the songs, you can simply study the details of the piano:
By the way, the bench has a mechanism that raises the part under the fifth point:
And a little more about the attention to detail: the set includes the music sheet for Donnie Chen's Playday. This is the original thing Donny wrote exclusively for this set:
I'm just wildly delighted! You can also make this piano play by yourself. Just insert six AAA batteries and the keys will be pressed by an invisible LEGO musician. Incredible.
The set will go on sale on August 1st. In the United States, its cost will be $ 350 (about 25 thousand rubles) before taxes, and in the UK, it will be asked for £ 319 (about 29 thousand rubles). Whether it will be possible to buy this set in Russia is still unknown. But I really hope so!
