A Tribute to Jules Verne: A Detailed Overview

The Tribute to Jules Verne’s Books set captures the essence of the beloved author and his most famous works in a truly unique and charming way.

Iconic Novels Brought to Life

This set pays homage to three of Verne’s most iconic novels! “Around the World in Eighty Days”, “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” and “Five Weeks in a Balloon”! Each novel is represented in a pop-up book style, making it a visual and interactive delight.

  • Five Weeks in a Balloon. The iconic balloon soars among the clouds, symbolizing the pioneering spirit of Verne’s adventurous tales!
  • Around the World in Eighty Days. The set features a high-speed train racing across a bridge, capturing the thrilling pace of Phileas Fogg’s journey!
  • Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. A golden submarine, representing the Nautilus, prepares to dive into the ocean depths, evoking the adventures of Captain Nemo!

These elements are beautifully detailed and accurately reflect the spirit and imagination of Verne’s storytelling.

The Jules Verne Minifigure

No tribute to Jules Verne would be complete without a minifigure of the man himself! Therefore, the set thoughtfully includes a detailed minifigure of Jules Verne, dressed in period attire. This addition not only enhances the authenticity of the set but also makes it a perfect addition for fans and collectors alike. Furthermore, the minifigure brings the entire set to life, thereby adding a personal touch to the tribute. Consequently, it elevates the overall appeal and makes the set even more special.

Dimensions and Display

The finished set measures over 11 cm (4 in.) high, 15 cm (6 in.) wide, and 14 cm (5.5 in.) deep, making it an ideal size for display on a shelf or desk. Whether you’re a literature lover, a history buff, or just a fan of beautiful LEGO sets, this tribute to Jules Verne is a must-have.
