That's supposed to be a Statue of Liberty? While I like the added Sand Green colors on the wall, I don't see how this looks anything more than a brick built muppet on a pedestal holding up a lighter. But hey... TAN 1x2 bricks and FIRE!!! And Sand Green SNOT.

Oh wait, I just noticed, Pierre was posting a historical Pick-A-Model and not what is currently going to market... hmmm.... mixed emotions now. lol

The Statue of Liberty pick a model was available only at the New York store. And then shortly after that it became the sand green pieces became the People's choice pick or something like that.

I wish that the Monthly Build was the Pick A Model each month, because those have a lot of cool and rare pieces. I'm sure they would actually sell some of those as the store people have indicated that they really haven't sold any as Pick A Models kits.

It's not that it's an old pick a model, but that statue of liberty is a pick a model exclusive to the New York City store(s) - it won't ever be available in other stores. The part should definitely go back on our list.

FYI, prices at the Rockefeller Center and Flatiron locations are above MSRP.

I'm not sure if the store in Queens Centre would have the exclusive build-a-model, but if you have time I'd suggest checking it out if you're hoping to redeem any points for product while down there ('cause the Manhattan mark-ups negate any benefits us Canadians hope to get using our points).

(One can get to Queens Centre on the subway by taking the E, M, or R line.)

I went to the Rockerfeller Center Lego store (great store!) and picked up a bunch of the sand green telescopes and other sand green pieces. I got extras of the telescopes in case any one is interested in having some.
