A LEGO(R) set that faithfully recreates insects in life-sized, realistic detail. The submission design also includes an impressive stand that was not part of the original entry.
21342 The Insect Collection
While the submission design featured five different insects, the final product includes three species: butterfly, praying mantis, and rhinoceros beetle. These insects are recreated in life-sized scale!
The bee, which wasn’t selected as a larger model, has been downsized and placed on the stand for the butterfly, while the ladybug has been positioned on the mantis stand using printed tiles.
Morpho butterfly. Display the bee as a mini model alongside the butterfly.
Giant mantis. The ladybug is featured in this set using printed round tiles.
The Hercules Beetle can have its wings removed.
On the LEGO(R) Shop Official Store’s product page, you can listen to sound effects inspired by each insect.
Here are the real insects. The level of detail reproduction is astonishing!
