Everything We Know About LEGO Art 31212 The Milky Way Galaxy | May 2024

May 15th looks to be LEGO Space Day as two brand new Space-themed models will be added to the ever-growing list of LEGO Space sets in 2024. Both of these sets of 10341 Artemis One Rocket & Launchpad and 31212 The Milky Way Galaxy we've covered here before at Bricks Up but thanks to YouTuber Brick Clicker we have further information on the latter of these two 18+ models.

31212 becomes the second LEGO Art set of 2024 after 31211 Macaw Parrots released almost four months ago on the 1st of January 2024. However, 31212 moves away from animals and nature and heads to space and intergalactic missions with a brick-built artistic view of the Milky Way Galaxy. Once it releases on the 15th of May 2024 it'll become the biggest LEGO Art set of the year retailing for $199.99 with a total of 3,091 pieces.

In recent years, LEGO has moved away from the original LEGO Art sets which included 1,000s of just 1x1 studs on a hangable plate. Instead, we see these 18+ models mix both 1x1 studs with ordinary LEGO pieces like in Januarys 31211 Macaw Parrots and 2023s 31208 Hokusai – The Great Wave.

Even with 31212 The Milky Way Galaxy having such a high piece count of 3,091, it's reported that the 18+ model will also move away from just 1x1 studs. Instead, the May 2024 set will be similar to last year's 31209 The Amazing Spider-Man. It will use a mixture of bricks, plates and studs to create a captivating model of our Milky Way Galaxy in brick-built LEGO form.
