LEGO has just announced the release of 21334 Jazz Quartet, the latest in the hugely popular LEGO Ideas theme.
The set has 1606 pieces, releasing 1st July for general sale. The set will cost US $99.99 / DE €99.99 / UK £89.99 / AU $169.99.
I’ve been looking forward to this one – the concept is really clever and it is well suited to show off just what LEGO can do. The four musicians include a female pianist (previously a male in the original submission by Hsinwei Chi) and three male jazz musos – on trumpet, double bass and drums.
They can be built separately, ideally with three other friends, then clipped together to create the ensemble. The poses are so organic!
I’m curious to see whether people decide to change the poses up. It looks like it’s doable, with a bunch of ball joints in the models.
Here you can see how the stage is broken up. I’m really excited to build this one. It’s on it’s way, so be sure to keep an eye out for an early review.
More photos are below, as well as the press release. Who’s keen for this one? Let me know in the comments!

Much like LEGO building, free-spirited jazz can be medicine for your mind – so I hope when the Jazz Quartet set is built and displayed, people will feel a connection to the music.”
