Yes! Waiting to flood the piano pics thread with these things!

It would be cool if this were available for Christmas - it would be on my list. Sadly I suspect its a bit late

Yes! But doesn't count unless you post your "fully assembled" pic to the official piano pics thread!

So ... which pianos are better?
Yamaha?
Casio?
Roland?
Kawai?
... or Lego?

That's a very fantastic Lego project, but how much it will cost?

My guess from looking at the other big sets is $300-500.

If it cost about $100 I guess it would sell like this:

At $500, honestly, I don't think it would sell like hot cakes... You can buy a playable 88-keys DP with those money...

Have you checked out Lego Technic series? If not you should def redefine what fun is laugh

Check out Lego Bugatti Chiron! or this one on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.ca/LEGO-Technic4...&hvtargid=pla-793123452659&psc=1

I sometimes think about getting the Chiron though. It's a lot of fun.

My guess is the price would fall between 100 - 300 dollars. That is based on my 13 year-old son's fascination with Technic Legos. He has a few 300 dollar ones and I can't imagine the piano being more intricate and custom than his Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS. That was a 300 dollar unit and it came with a really nice illustrated collector's book.

God Bless,
David

When I was growing up (1960s), I had a Lego set. Back then, they were sold in a round cardboard container with a metal screw-on top. The set had mostly generic parts, but also might include some roof tiles and a couple of basic windows and a door to make a simple house. If you wanted more Legos, you bought more of these sets. It was all really quite simple and the whole idea was to use your imagination to build whatever you could think up. These Lego modern "kits" seem counter to that idea, and more like building a model.

Exactly right, Tony. But don't underestimate the level of effort involved in some of those models. I think they're a good exercise in spatial reasoning and just plain-old following instructions.

Still ... hundreds of dollars for a pile of plastic? Ouch.

No, I don't underestimate the effort involved in building a model. I built several models as a kid, but they were different from Lego. The appeal to parents back then with Lego was about developing imagination and creativity. Models, unless you are designing and creating your own, are about following directions and developing the skills necessary to do that properly. Both are good skills to develop, so I am not saying one is better than the other.

It could be nice if it allowed you to play carillon-like notes when press the keys, but from the videos it appears to be mute, even when the little hammers hit the little strings... I'm wrong?
