The folks over at LEGO certainly have some new and interesting additions in the past, and we have also seen our fair share of interesting LEGO projects that at times, truly boggles the mind how human imagination and enterprise have managed to go so far. Well, LEGO Architecture has the latest addition that is set to thrill collectors and political observers alike, with the United Nations Headquarters being slated for an October 1st release.

The United Nations Headquarters LEGO set has been described as such, “Originally designed in a modernist architectural style by a team of multinational architects, including Le Corbusier and Oscar Niemeyer, the United Nations Headquarters will receive the LEGO treatment beginning October 1st.” This is a highly detailed LEGO replica which comprises of more blocks than countries in the world, where it measures 8” (21cm) wide, 5” (14cm) high, and 6” (15cm) deep. The accompanying booklet will feature details on design and history, and the entire shebang will cost $49.99 a pop. Hopefully mom will not have to play the role of the UN to keep the peace in the house as the kids fight over the right to put it together!
