International travel is all but a forgotten memory, and my passport is languishing in a drawer somewhere, along with the disappointment of cancelled overseas travels, and prospect that international travel remains closed off for the foreseeable future. This is a big set, that will probably take me over 10 hours to complete. The thousands of studs arrive in bags, so I used an old Dots tray to sort the colours out — of course you can use small glass bowls, or cups, but I felt like the Dots worked well here with the different-sized compartments for the that came in handy for the more common components.
You do need to pay attention to the placement of the tiles as one misplaced tile can throw you off quite a bit. The LEGO World Map comes with its own soundtrack — about an hour-long podcast episode on travelling the world, featuring the following guests. I highly recommend listening to the companion podcast and wish it was longer!
Hearing these travel stories, especially those that have made travel their vocation made me yearn to travel once again, and the LEGO World Map has those that have travelled extensively, or have an interest in geography squarely in their sights. Travel is an interesting topic, and can mean many things to many people, and all the stories in the podcast had a similar thread — that exploring different countries and cultures vastly made you a better person.
Travel is also a privilege, something that not many people get the opportunity of doing so, and building the world map made me reflect on my own history with exploring the globe. I am not as well-travelled as I would have liked to be, although I have been fortunate to grow up in Malaysia, and now call Australia home.
Travel for me was a choice — starting a young family makes travel challenging for obvious reasons, and we had all these grand plans of seeing more of the world when my daughter was older, but those dreams have been put on hold thanks to the Pandemic. In another life pre-having kids , I spent a lot of my overseas holidays in Japan.
Me and my wife have a lifelong love of the country, and especially the food — so much so that I tried to start a travel blog documenting our first Japanese holiday in , and all the amazing food that we had there. That said, because of my focus on work and starting a family, travelling for leisure soon took a backseat, where any international holidays were reserved for heading back home to visit friends, or to attend overseas weddings of those close to us.
White studs are slightly raised and are used to represent landmasses, whereas the oceans multicoloured tiles are based on bathymetry maps , that depict the submerged topography and physiographic features of ocean and sea bottoms. A really enjoyable and fulfilling part of the build is when you start piecing the separate plates together, and suddenly, familiar land-masses and silhouettes begin to take shape. The studs for the landmasses also serve as a canvas for further customisation and personalisation.
Like a massive puzzle, I think this is one of those experiences that you should drag out for as much as possible, and avoid rushing it as it can get quite tedious if you try to speedrun the LEGO World Map. The full RRP of the set is a little pricey, and I fully expect these to be discounted quite deeply when they arrive at Australian retailers like Amazon. If you are in the market for some home decor, and want to spice up the walls in your home, the LEGO World Map should absolutely be on your wishlist.

Ya, there are only studs, but almost 12k of them! With other Art sets, for the same price You can get only around k. The back of the box shows the completed model in real-world settings, giving you an idea of just how much space this set will take to display. The actual dimensions are included around one of the smaller photos along the bottom edge: Sealed with a second round of tab stickers, it contains the instruction manual and the pieces that will make up the frame.
One of the parts bags had split on me in transit, making the unboxing a little more dramatic than LEGO had probably intended. Instead, this kit is made up of only 32 different parts, resulting in this somewhat comically sparse inventory page. The volume of pieces in this set, though, is very apparent when you start to lay out the part bags.
The World Map, however, even larger than that. The bricks come in a large black box with a logo encouraging you to check out the soundtrack. These account for 11, of the 11, pieces. If you look closely at the photo below, you can spot my minifigure avatar for scale. As well as the Ziploc bag I used to contain all those loose medium azure tiles.
Out of curiosity, I dumped the parts into tall Pick-a-Brick cups to get an idea of comparative volume. Fair warning to those considering this set — it is going to take a long, long time to assemble. The main image took about eight hours total, with another half hour on either end for the frame and setup. I can offer a couple of building tips to help speed things up. The other tip involves the color guide plate. By using the color guide as a ruler and sliding it down the instructions I found I could better track things and see what tile had to go on next.
An accompanying soundtrack featuring stories from travel experts has been curated to immerse listeners in their passion for exploration as they build. Pedersen, the first person to visit every country in the world in one unbroken journey without flying, and blogger Syazwani Baumgartner who has experienced some of the most remote places on the planet.
Just be prepared to listen to it several times…. Recently, LEGO announced that they were moving away from black backgrounds for their instructions, but the Art theme seems to be exempt from that change. While the layout of the instructions matches all the other Art sets, the manual itself is wider. This results in a ton of wasted space on each page. But, to me, it feels like LEGO artificially increased the page count to make the instructions seem more impressive.
The all-white landmasses are a pretty mindless build, but the oceans are a different challenge level entirely. I suppose documenting that would have lead to an even more bloated instruction manual, though. The final step is adding a couple of hangers to the back, to allow for hanging the completed work on the wall. Initial designs of this set did have a basis on maps with borders and topographic representations, but then things clearly took a different direction.
I wanted to see how far we could take it. This is the creative freedom we have as designers when we build with LEGO bricks — we can play with the norms. So we removed all man-made borders and created the land masses in a super simple, yet powerful design with a cast shadow effect.
With the oceans as negative space, the land masses really pop on a vibrant background of — literally — oceans of joyful colors. We experimented with dozens of test versions until we found a beautifully balanced palette that lets you build a bathymetric version of the oceans whilst being versatile enough to create endless, fun, alternative iterations. In person, the completed build does look good. Happily, it sits well on a mantlepiece just fine without resorting to the mounting hardware. As mentioned earlier, the most complex part of this build was color matching the oceans.
